    After being booked out with no guests available the previous day, our party of 4 on Boxing Day was almost on our own and consequently we received prompt almost exclusive service by all staff. Food was good, albeit somewhat (but understandably) expensive on this day.

    The view is fantastic, service very polite and helpful. The roast was a little disappointing with no roasted vegetables. First time to buffet but the staff did very well due to the conditions with covid. I was very surprised how polite and accommodating they were. i don't recall any music maybe there was some but this adds to the ambiance makes it more enjoyable .

    We came for a Pre Christmas get togetherNo one at concierge desk. The wrong cocktail was brought out. The menu very ordinary for a large hotel. We came for smorgasbord & was told it’s only at breakfast. Lastly, the Food we ordered took sooooo long to come out. I never write bad things, but this experience was worth telling you.

    Very few choices for a "buffet". Too expensive for what U get..... Dissapointed. Chicken was not cooked well. A poor comparison to the hey days of the rendezvous buffet.

    Buffet was instantiable and not worth the money. No crackling with roast pork, no soup, only cold seafood was prawns and only salad coleslaw?? Come on.

    Thank you to your wonderful staff, Ana and a young lass who looked after us exceptionally well! The food was extremely tasty although there was quite a wait for our main course. But was definitely worth the wait! And thank you so much for the bottle of sparkling wine for my partner’s birthday - it was a lovely gesture and very much enjoyed! We will be back!

    We went on a windy Sunday afternoon. The waitress was lovely and very attentive. Food arrived in good time and was delicious. I had pork belly and hubby had fish. His serve was a little on the small side. There was only four other people there and so it was quiet, which we enjoy. The view is great of course opposite the beach but the windows are a mess! It’s a shame they don’t fix the tinting because it’s really scratched and actually ages the restaurant instead of being an amazing feature. Having said that we’ll definitely go back for the food.

    The entrees were average (arancini a bit dry & you had to search for the very small pieces of squid in the squid salad) but all of our mains were delicious. The service was mainly good but given it wasn't very busy we were disappointed when we had to go to the desk to get a wine menu and then go back to place the order because there was no-one around to take the order. Overall not bad

    Great ocean views from a window side table. Excellent choice of wines with a range where you could purchase by the glass. Able to choose a wine to complement each course. Had the beef brisket for main course which was delicious. The desserts were magnificent and shared portions with others at our table. Service was prompt and attentive during the evening. Overall a great experience.

    Food was ok. Not very exciting choices. Waitress was not overly friendly. Very matter of fact. Didn’t listen carefully to our orders. Had to repeat. Kitchen didn’t get order right. Asked for no tomato in steak sandwich but got tomato. Ordered chips and aioli but they didn’t send aioli. Scallops and pork was delicious. We ordered chips to share and go with the scallops and steak sandwich. It would have been nice if waitress had said steak sandwich comes with chips already do you want extra? We had way too many chips. Wouldn’t rush back there.

    It was a lovely atmosphere and service was friendly. Our meals were tasty, apart from the beef brisket. It was so tough (very difficult to cut through), no remotely like a brisket should be. My husband couldn't eat it and politely advised the waitstaff that it was not acceptable and just to please let the chef know he was unable to eat it. We thought it would've been comped from our bill, but it wasn't. We didn't want to complain further so paid and left. Steer clear of the brisket if you eat there.

    Chairs need replacing as they are old and have no padding. The menu was small and has no options that were without a heavy carbohydrate load. Won't be going back for lunch again and not until they have new chairs.
