The decor was very tropical and light which set the mood for a relaxing dining experience. Not being a seafood eater, I found that there wasn't a lot of dishes to choose from. I think there could have been more for the non-seafood eaters. In saying that though, what there was to choose from was great quality and very tasty. We were told when we arrived that we didn't need to go to the bar to order drinks, that a waiter/waitress would make sure that we always had a drink if we needed one. However, after our first drink, no one seemed keen to ask if we wanted another one. Luckily we could access water ourselves. The price seemed fairly reasonable but needed more non-seafood dishes to choose from.

The service was incredible and even made drinks off the menu for us as non of the cocktails tickled our fancy but were very accommodating! The desserts were delicious although tasted somewhat artificial. Some of them where just a bit powdery or could taste the gelatine. Overall it was an incredible night but as someone who does not eat seafood, $60 is a little too much in my opinion

Lots of food options, everything was beautifully cooked. Lots of fresh fruit too. Loved the sago pudding options. Basic tea, coffee and juice was included or you could splurge for something a bit more fancy.

The bacon had an odd taste and had obviously sat in the container for while. The pastries were basic and were not refilled regularly, the croissants were very hard. Service was good and the surroundings lovely. Very disappointing food, especially considering the cost.

Then the staff member who was walking us to our table kept staring at me the whole breakfast so I wasn’t very happy

Only downside was people letting their kids help themselves, standing on plate shelves to reach , fingers on chic fountain etc etc. . We left early because of this.

The only thing was that our drinks too around 30 minutes to get and they were watered down. Could’ve been a busy night as I’ve worked food before and can understand busy nights but just thought I’d add that note, otherwise excellent all in all.

Good range of food. But quality was less then price charged for an adult, $59.95 per adult. Would have been happier to pay the website price $39.95.

Little disappointed with the cheese and crackers and deserts. Would be nice to have more cakes and slices. The lemon cake had not been replenished, just the crust was left.

I liked the offer of cheese and sea food. lots of options both sweet and savory and the kids loved the cupcake station. price is not so family friendly especially outside of kids eat free and for the kids mocktails but definitely a nice place for a celebration
