    Food was quiet expensive for how much you get, service wasnt that good as the staff took a while to take our order and then to have things missing, nothing like the old Windjammers.

    Currently served in a different area due to the renovations. The food was good. The service not bad but our coffee order went in at the same time as a large conference group order so we had to wait over half an hour. In the end we skipped the coffees and went for one across the road on the beach.

    While food quality and service were very good, my overseas guests found dinner plates next to the soup unclean - one plate after another. We found first four plates not usable.

    Food is only average and nothing to write home about. Seafood was limited to prawns, oysters, crab and bugs. The cold food selection was nice, but the hot food was really disappointing. Desserts were not too bad. We have been coming here for years, but the standard is not as good as it used to be.

    This was the busiest I have ever seen this restaurant! It was difficult to enjoy our experience fully as there were 100+ conference delegates all at the buffet while we were there. Long lines for seafood although it improved once they put out an extra serving area. Food was very fresh and refills were continuous. However the noise affected our group as we couldn’t talk. I’d definitely go again, not sure if I’d take a group of friends in case this happened again.

    Buffet lunch was all fresh and tasty. We were a group of five and all enjoyed the options presented. There is a wide variety of food. Will definitely return.

    The food variety was terrible, Seafood was only OK had problems eating the Oysters due to small amounts of shell in the Oyster this was caused by the way they were handled They were in a bucket before they were put out for consumption. The hot meat was very cheap ( Pork ) no other varieties Tables were very slow to be cleaned as there were only a small amount of diners.

    only one minor problem, after our meal we indulged in a cup of tea. the hot water in the machine was only just hot and not hot enough for a good cup of tea. So we left the tea. Everything else was a nine out of ten Peter (Party of eight )

    The hot buffet food was very disappointing this time. Might also be a good idea to seat large family groups with screaming children further away from the couples

    Unfortunately we did not enjoy our dinner as much as we had hoped to. Prawns and oysters were terrific and dessert fabulous but remainder was tasteless and only lukewarm. We were sooo disappointed. Mind you the following morning we went for buffet breakfast and it was fantastic!!! We will try again. We hope it was just a one off bad night.

    At that price you never be served thawed out frozen prawns and bugs. They should always be fresh. Watery and tasteless.
