All food & Seafood was lovely! The chairs & tables need to be updated. Service was slow, as only 2 wait staff on. We had to find own water jug, as staff was too busy.

We arrived on time 6pm. They didn't have our booking. We had to find The folk booking to show them. We had the worst seafood buffet . It was tasteless. Other hot buffet was really bad as well even desserts including very old ice cream. I feel for a big group of tourists. They need lots change. I was so dissapointed first night at Surfers Paradise.

Excellent fresh seafood buffet. Good spread hot and cold. Restaurant was 100% full which tells you of the popularity. Will definitely go again.
