Food is below average, especially for how much you pay now (prices have gone up since I last went which was years ago), I know it's a buffet restaurant but the selection to choose from is disappointing. I'd rather go to McDonalds to be honest.

Valentines Hamilton is not even a shadow of what it was in the past. We are glad we looked at the assortment of food before deciding if we were going to dine there. Never again!

After having dined at other Valentines this place is well below par. We were going to make a booking for Christmas Day, but with our Fathers Day experience there would be no way. A good clean wouldnt go amiss, and having to line up for a meal and waiting for dishes to be refilled. No way wont be back.
