A convenient option for in-house dining. But theres something about a buffet that brings out the worst in people though.... waste, crassness & foul manners! It was like some people hadn't seen food before. I'd skip the pre 7pm sittings if you're not into chaos.
Food was ok, a good variety. Bread basket looked like the leftovers from the breakfast buffet though.
Would have loved a bit more fruit in dessert section.

Table plates not cleared often enough. Understaffed. Staff were very friendly but not many of them on roster

Food was good and great value for kids. Service was lacking - wait staff were cleaning empty tables around us while we had a pile of plates on our table. They only cleared our table once in the 1.5 hours we were there, and didn’t ask if we wanted more drinks after our initial order. We were sat next to a table with screaming toddlers (which I know no one can control), but was a bit disappointing as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary with our own older children. We dine there quite regularly and usually have much better experience. Hopefully next time is better.

Great restaurant, lots of food with lots of choices. The only down side to it was that because it was so busy the food was only warm because lids were constantly being lifted up. Totally out of the restaurants hands though. Great place to for kids and the food was lovely. My grandson especially liked the chocolate milk and pancakes every morning.

Unfortunately the quality of the food wasn’t up to the normal standard of Shoreline. We have been over the last couple of years and really liked it.

Service was great, staff are friendly and willing to help.
The food was good, not a lot of variety, I think is a bit pricey. I had a beef stew with rice that I would have paid $12 for at any other restaraunt, at the shoreline I paid $35, I could have got an eye fillet for that price. Also ordered a jug of lemonade which tasted like sugar flavoured water. It feels like a jail kitchen, the people act like it’s going to be their last meal, and there is a lot of pushing in, the place is quite big which means more people (tourists) with no common courtesy.

This is not a restaurant that I would recommend if you were not staying at the resort. The buffet is kid friendly but the variety was heavily indian and curry based and not to my liking. The posters around advertise a carvery but I did not see any sign of a carvery. The price was reduced to 29.50 so very reasonable but the food itself seemed like a curry and pasta buffet.

For the price you pay there are far better options on the Gold Coast.

Reasonable food prepared for our discounted price. Soft drinks not included though which seems steep at the standard price. Children are paid by age which is great. Good selection of hot dishes along with salads and the dessert bar.
Our biggest let down was that only half the seating area was utilized with a large area of tables untouched which literally places everyone within breathing distance of other diners and made for a noisy dining experience. Our discounted rate was worth the cost but still over $100 for a family of 5.

Service is very slow, had to really hunt down a waitress after we had been there for 30 minutes to order drinks, nobody had even come near us, same as breakfast next morning, my husband had to leave the table to order coffees for us

Fantastic service. I watched how staff was so busy cleaning up and serving constantly yet they have a smile on their face, they are courteous, attentive and friendly. This resort is extra special because of these guys.
Food was great. A bit more variation from day to day would be nice but it was great.

The restaurant was well run and the staff friendly. A good selection of food was available and provided value for money. My only suggestion is that perhaps the restaurant could open a little earlier as there were a lot of young children and tired parents waiting impatiently for the doors to open.

Food needed seasoning. I don't think I actually loved anything I tried. The kids were happy with the ice cream station, but didn't eat much else. For the price I was expecting better, I think Sizzler has better quality food. I would avoid it for dinner. Was ok for breakfast.
