    Farmed Prawn with no flavour and Barnacles impersonating Oysters, cold mussells with again with no flavor, baby octopus like rubber bands , not a seafood buffet worth the asking $79 a head. Alternate dishes were Beef, Lamb and Ham. Lamb was grisly and the only meat dish cooked , all others were well over cooked . Dessert all were grease and lacked flavour .

    Food was OK. We got the 2 for 1 special for $79, so was happy with the food for that price, however if I paid $79 each I would have been a bit disappointed. The seafood was not very tasty (may have been frozen) and the other dishes were ok but nothing to rave about. Staff were attentive, so that's a plus!

    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.

    With online voucher discount, the buffet is good at value. Oysters, crabs and prawns are fresh enough. Other hot food are nice.
