Buffet selection was extensive with a beautiful selection of foods and desserts. The restaurant had great ambience with exceptional singing by the live band duo, which added to the dinning experience. Family friendly, with elegant surroundings and excellent customer service - our waitress was a gem!

We use to attend Mesh for family functions. Over the last 2 years Mesh has decreased in service as well as the quality of food for what you pay for. When dinning at Crown there are so many better choices for quality food and service at the same price

Food is really bad, very basic, nothing but the ice cream is a stand out - which they do not make themselves.

The occasion was for my son's 21st Birthday. The food was great so he says. He had his friends there, but when I received the bill, I was appalled by the exorbitant prices of the drinks. One glass of gin cost $67.00 and Ice tea $19.00. This is disgusting and appalling. NEVER AGAIN!!

Plenty of choice but food dish quality varies. Drinks at hotel prices signiflcantly adds to cost of dinner. Live music can be overbearing dependent on where you are seated.

A lot of people, a lot of noise and a lot of kids but I guess that is to be expected with a buffet.
Food quality and choice was pretty good but the long food queue was a negative. People sure do stuff around when it comes to making a decision on what they want to put on their plate.
Also found it too cold in there so had to eat with our coats on.
Would probably go back but only for a quick meal before a show at the Crown.

We were there two years ago and disappointed in the buffet selection. Not many mixed salads or green veggies, little fresh seafood no chocolate fountain. The fried whiting and calamari were cold.

It was my birthday dinner and I was disappointed.

We took our Grand Daughter for her 10th birthday & we all loved it; great choice of food both savoury & sweet; our GD particularly loved the chocolate fountain; the variety is extensive; child eats free with each adult; price of $72 per head for adults includes 3 drinks, wine or beer; the red was Hardy's & very reasonable.
The service was good.
All round it was a very reasonable deal in pleasant ambience.

Good aray of food and value for money for most of us.
My daughter who is 18 has food allergies and the chef came out and although could not rule out allergens in any of the food recommended what she could and could not have.
There were many foods that my daughter could not have due to her allergies so I think it was more appropriate that she only gets charged for a childs meal instead of an adult meal in the future.

I used to go there regularly but not anymore. Last night was horrible. The waitress was rude and reprimanded my autistic son because she she didn’t like his tone he used. Disgusted!!!! This was supposed to be a celebration meal.

I took my daughter for her 16th birthday. We stayed out Crown and shopped earlier at DFO and surprised her with buffet dinner. Even though we didn't get a window seat as requested our seating was great. The food and service was the best I have ever experienced. Can't wait to bring the rest of the family and will be telling my friends. She had a wonderful night and even tried food she would not normally eat. Thank you for making her birthday one to remember.

I’ve been here before but was surprised how the buffet food choices were cut, service has declined yet prices have increased. I had to hunt down waiters for drink orders and then wait 40mins for my post-dinner coffee (having chased it twice). Save your money and go to many of the better options.

Totally didn’t like it as ut was a seafood buffet but even seafood variety was limited . Most of the times the trays were empty and long que for getting to simple prawns. It was a joke for $72 per head . Only best part was 3 drinks inclusive in the offer and kids free per adult. Only if u have one kid each per adult it is worth it .

The salads were very limited. Even 3 star hotels doing buffets might do better
