My husband and I dined here last night and had the Seafood Buffet. It definitely was not worth the cost they were asking. We have had many seafood buffets over the years and this one was not good. They have a very limited selection of hot foods and even less desserts. On the plus side the prawns ,crab and oysters... More

We went for the seafood buffet on Saturday night and the only word i can use to describe it is underwhelming. There are very few fresh seafood options in this buffet. Prawns, plain oysters and crab. No balmain Bugs or lobster to be seen anywhere. a few more sauce options for the oysters would go a LONG way to improving... More

Good selection. Fresh and very appealing. Non seafood options available for seafood dinner. Price is good for what is on offer. No bugs but I think if there were bugs there would be an increase in price. Good overall

Highly recommend the full buffet breakfast, the food was beautifully displayed, innovative hot and fresh! If you are lucky enough to be looked after by lovely Toshina and Bing you sure will be delighted! The waffles and omelettes cooked to your liking are a must! We enjoyed a very relaxed and enjoyable start to our day, thank you! ☺
