    Second visit. Quite noisy and very busy. Not enough staff so table was never cleared of plates and cups. Barrister was very helpful and organised. Great setting.

    It's at very good location of Scarborough Beach. Easy to get car space when we booked for breakfast. Front desk staff is very kind and sorted out the payment issue for us.

    Great variety of food including little churros and pastries whish was very nice, staff friendly and helpful just a few things let it down the temperature of the hot food could be hotter the little chipolatas (sausages) were a bit dry and the salt and pepper on the table were empty. Overall a great selection of food at a good price overlooking the ocean just a few things that need a little help has a good area if you have a group but a bit echoey for people with hearing problems.

    The food bit very slow to come out. There’s no flowers on table as shown in Ad. The sparkling water we thought was included in the meal. But the environment was great. The stuff was friendly.

    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.

    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!

    i chose the market special rankin cod - for $40, I got 2 very small pieces of cod, along with 15 peas, 8 small pieces of cauliflower & a very sparse sauce - expected more for the price. Finished it in 6 mouthfuls.

    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.
