Food here is overpriced and service not great. As we made a reservation for our first dinner at the resort, the attendant tried to dissuade us from making our 'unusually late' booking for 8.15pm as there would not be much choice left at the buffet. He was correct. We only ate from the buffet that evening as the prices on... More

We decided to eat at Maheno after a recommendation from an employee. It is called a buffet, but in fact it is only the salad and vegetables that are buffet. You have to order a meat, chicken or seafood main from the waiter. We did this and also ordered wine. It seems our waiter forgot to lodge our order and... More

We ordered the seafood plate for 2 ladies it is too much to eat. It was delicious but it was a shame that we couldn't eat all of it. It cost 130 $, which was a lot. Better to ask to share it for 3 - then you will be satisfied for normal eaters.

This restaurant is in a lovely position but the dinner menu/buffet concept unusual. The food quality was average and not much choice from the buffet. The meat pattie in the hamburger was dry, lacking ingredients, overcooked and tasted slightly off. A pan fried salmon fillet was cooked in an unpleasant flavoured oil - perhaps the oil was not fresh ?... More

Friendly and relaxed staff in a lovely location overlooking the Pool. The Breakfast buffet offers all the standard selections and they make a good coffee if you are prepared to pay extra.

Loved coming here for a relaxed breakfast after a morning swim. Good coffee to start , followed by hearty breakfast with no time pressure and great view from outside table. Feels like tropical paradise

Attentive and relaxed staff with great food and location. Overlooking the main pool this is a great place on the island for dinner. The seafood tower provides a wealth of hot and cold seafood to sate senses after a day exploring the island.

Alarmed staff member of a cockroach crawling in the breads and corssiants and he used the pair of bread tongs to flick it away and then that was it. Bread and tongs remained out for use.... accomodation rooms were nice however this experience ruined the trip for me at KingFisher.

Description
A selection of hearty and healthy breakfast options provide the energy needed for the day's exploring. As lunchtime rolls round, the sun-dappled waters of the resort pool and surrounding wallum scrub set the scene for a leisurely afternoon on the deck of the Maheno Restaurant with the family.

Guests can relax with a coldie or a glass of red over dinner and take time, between visits to the buffet, to soak up the sounds of Fraser Island.Note:

This restaurant is open daily for breakfast. Lunch and Dinner times are seasonal - please check with the resort.
