The buffet was good for the price , if you wanted steak or fish it was extra , the food they sent up for room service was great and a reasonable price , would and will eat there again .

- Overpriced.
- Below average food.
-Tried to overcharge other guests.
-No music /atmosphere.
-Fans on the deck were off (in summer).
-Rushed out before closing.


I attended a 21st birthday there and the buffet was very limited in options for the price ( $35) . Other all you can eat buffets in Cairns for less with better variety. They tried to charge other guests $38 and gave no explanation why when we questioned them. No Music or atmosphere and they seated us outside where the fans were off until we requested they be tuned on, and in a Cairns summer it's very hot. While wrapping dinner up and giving the final birthday speeches the manager on duty came and asked if we would be much longer, it was approx 9:00pm. We wrapped things up quickly as we could see the manager hovering and trying to move us on, making his presence and displeasure very known. By the time we were done we couldn't leave through the restaurant because he had locked it all and turned all lights off, there was no staff in sight. We ended up leaving through a side gate. I was in my car to head home about 9:20pm the restaurant according to trip advisor doesn't close till 9:30pm. I found it unprofessional, uninviting and extremely rude. Considering we were the largest group of the night they would have made most of the nights earnings from us. Never recommending or returning.

The lines are long, the buffet is small, there are too many tables. The food is average. There are plenty of places in Cairns that provide a better experience.

Food was bad. I found a fly on the Salad and when I informed the staff, they just said 'Sorry'. Staff was friendly however, but quality of food needs to improve.
