My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our date at the Mesh. There was quite a variety of food and it was all very nice. Sweets were also amazing.

We really loved coming here in the past so we booked again for lunch. This time unfortunately the variety of food on offer wasn't as good and only one side of the buffet was open. It made lining up a longer process because the food needed to be replaced quicker, the buffet just seemed cheap. Advertised as seafood buffet but not much on offer apart from oysters, small prawns, mussels, and pipis. The dessert buffet on the other hand was fantastic, lots of variety and the quality was great.

We. Celebrated my husbands 60 th birthday, just with our immediate family. It was very pleasant, good food, drinks were included in the price. Music in the background, but it enough to disturb the conversation at the table, we could still all speak and be heard. Waitresses were lovely and service was good.

Waiting to be seated, the two people on the counter had no clue. Very unorganized and rude.

The buffer, seaford and cakes section was good. All the rest was terrible. Meat was not season over cooked. Not a good variety.

I have to admit free 3 drknks os a good, although the value for money was not worth it. Im comparing this to Perth casino atrium and epicure. Which was fantastic,mesh is on the other scale 2 out of 10.

Taste of food is good, but two row on sides are actually the same food, during the whole night there are not that many people lining up for food, so putting the same food on two rows is actually not needed, suggest to put some other food, like japanese food, 3 types of sushi rolls and one type of sashimi is too small in one cuisine.

Firstly the manager on duty Sunday 6th was lovely, he was really considerate - so big thanks. But I would like to advise others on a budget about 'bill creep'. I budgeted for 6 adults at the $72 per head. 1/2 our table did not drink alcohol. I was therefore disappointed that lime and soda is not considered a soft drink and that I was charged an additional $80 to my surprise. Plus when kids are offered fries by the waiter they say yes!! I was charged extra - annoyed

Reasonable but not exceptional food. Don’t bother with the crab or hot seafood but oysters good. Service hit or miss. Overall a pleasant lunch but couldn’t see entertainment and were placed between large party group and wait station.

Whilst the service was good and the atmosphere was pleasant, there was very minimal for a vegetarian. I did state I was vegetarian and the options I had were make my own salad, a bread roll, fried rice, potatos and carrots. It was a little dissapointing for my 19th birthday. So to spend $49 on that without drinks doesn't seem like it was worth it. My boyfriend loved his food and enjoyed the extensive meat options though. So I'm very happy with that.

I've been here for 3 consecutive years in a row, for our family Christmas dinner and feel this year was not up to scratch. There was less variety in food this year and didn't really cater for the children.

We waited almost 10 mins to be seated, when going to the buffet we had to wait in line over 20 minutes before reaching the food. Everyone seemed unimpressed especially with people cutting in, felt very unorganised.
The food was less appealing than I had hoped with party pies, sausage rolls, parma, fish and chips, chicken skewers, beef stew, sausages with onion, dry roast pork and bloody raw roast beef on the menu. Dessert was not extensive. Overall disappointing.

I don’t believe there was enough variety in the buffet. There could have been a lot more international dishes.

The service was way to slow with drinks with our table constantly having to remind staff of our drinks not arriving, considering the restaurant had a minimal amount of people.

The size of the complimentary drinks are not standard drink size in my opinion.

Werent told about drinks ending at 10:30pm. Asked someone for drinks at 10:45 was told they would get someone to serve us then no one came. Asked again at 10:55 then someone who was rude and aggressive told us drinks were over at 10:30z i mean we would have ordered them beforehand if we were told that in the first place.
Ribs were dry
Seafood was fresh and delicious
Dessert was bland but choc fountainWas good.
Stuffed up my reward points.

Great food however it is advertised as a seafood buffet. There isn't a lot of seafood. There prawns, oysters, mussels, salmon and fish. The rest of the food is equally great but I feel it's really just a lovely buffet

The waiting staff where lovely & courteous and very attentive.

The food variety could be increased

Its a shame the package did not include coffee.

My only issue is when we went to pay the lady at the register didn't know the offer of kids eating free, so I felt like I had to fight her to explain it was on. It was only when she went to her computer she realised. I shouldn't have to explain this to staff
