Very limited options for the price especially in the fruit and yogurt.
For a buffet we wouldn't go back as value not there for us.

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.

Very ordinary buffet breakfast. Food cooked very quickly when plated as the aircon was very cold. Only twelve diners during the two hours we were 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.

Lovely views and good service. It would be better if the share plates of salads and vegetables came with servers to reduce the risk of cross contamination from the use of our own forks.

One of the dishes ordered was not as described on the menu. When this was queried the staff did not resolve the query objectively and the customer service was poor.

Overall the food was really very nice and the view was lovely. The service was poor. The waitress serving us said it was her first night and was not helpful and bordering on rude during our entire seating.

After our main we asked for dessert menu which came after an eye roll. We waited 10 minutes for our order to be taken but it never happened. We ended up walking out and had coffee/dessert elsewhere.

Given a voucher as a wedding anniversary gift. Although we had a reservation we were given a poor table near entrance so my view was of the lobby. This was disappointing considering couple before us who had not booked were given a much better table. My first course was undercooked and so not edible, I did let the waitress know and she apologised and took the cost off the bill. The food was ok but nothing special. Wouldn't bother returning myself.

The only negative we experienced was on seeking to leave the car park at Rendezvous, the ticket machine did not accept our parking ticket. There was no indication the parking was free and we wasted a lot of time determining the exit

2 waitstaff could not cope with number of tables. We waited for ages for a menu. Then waited more for them to take our drinks order. Then waited again for our main order to be taken. Dessert menu wasn't offered, we had to request one. We were there for a lot longer than needed.
Please retrain your wait staff

Very Disappointing...The buffet was very very basic in variety.
One chicken dish , One fish dish
Only one type of roast meat that was beef and it was tough as leather...no curry no rice..the mixed chopped vegetables were bland.
The food was only just warm & not topped up frequently enough.
The prawns were not much bigger than shrimps.
No water bowls on the tables for rinsing hands when eating prawns.
A very basic buffet for the price.
