    The price for the quality was massively disproportionate, in the page the mentioned a good selection of roast but there was only beef roast, the chicken only came in drumsticks amd were tastess, the shepherds pie looked like it had been sitting for hours and the pasta dish we didnt touch because it look worse than the pie, the only two dishes that were of any decent taste was the two curry but that could have been bought at a takeaway for 1/10 the cost, the salad bar was plain and simple too, the only food of any size or possible value was the desert area and the seafood, but again for the price paid save yourself the exspense and go to a seafood restaurant, the service was exceptional but not enough to remove the bad taste of food and the $20 parking was the best money for service brought on the night, this place should no be on the web for a good place for buffet

    Felt the Moreton Bay bugs and prawns weren't very fresh.. Bugs were salty and prawns were a bit slimy. We have been there in the past.... Seafood just weren't the same and fresh as compared to our previous dining experience. Service at our table was a bit slow in terms of clearing the plates and seafood bowls.... The manager was good enough to noticed and cleared for us. He was attentive and showed good managerial skills

    There was once again no smoked salmon or poached salmon like they have had in the past nor Moreton bay bugs. Would like to see this change. The prawns are great but needs to be more choice of seafood for the price.

    Have been going to the Sofitel for at least 15 yrs Need to bring back the drinks package , was told they only do it on weekends now . Found this out at the end when was paying and was a bit annoyed that we were not informed beforehand . Today’s experience has made me think is it worth it , will not renew my Accor membership and not return to the Sofitel once my membership has runs out this year . I guess I should be thanking you as this will be saving me thousands a year now , so thank you .

    The service was great, staff were warm and friendly. Ambiance was enjoyable. Was expecting more seafood but all-in-all, not too bad overall. The selection was decent and the dessert bar was great.

    I found lunch to be disappointing this time, we only went last week and there were crabs also and poached salmon available this week none. There wasn’t even any smoked salmon! I think if it is a seafood lunch it would be nice to have a little more variety. Also the champagne service was severely lacking. For $92 a head I would expect better. We also took our family this week for a treat and it was a shame that we found it lacking. Will have to rethink if we wish to do it again. Last time we went on Sunday, is it different on Saturday to Sunday, just wondering?

    This time the hot food is better the cold seafood, we love the lobster soup and cooked mussels. The desserts are wonderful. Staff are nice and helpful, must come again.

    Food was fresh and plentiful. Lady at front was a bit abrupt and when we asked to sit by the window was very quick to say no because these were only by special request. Despite this the tables remained mostly empty the whole time we were there. Other wait staff where very helpful and friendly.

    The seafood (oyster & prawns) are really fresh. I don’t normally eat raw oyster but I enjoyed this time. The chair is too high comparing with my friend’s sofa sitting, we can see the difference by sitting opposite to each other.

    Very nice buffet with variety of seafood and others. Desert is amazing and you will have trouble making selection as we only can eat so much! Friday/saturday nights were $40 more expensive due to moreton bay bug and sandcrab but might not be worth that much extra if you aren’t a seafood lover.
