I think it would be nice to give diners a guide of the buffet menu as they are being led to their tables. No Heinekein 😥 One more hot vegetable

The food was good and there was plenty of it The only thing that let the service down was the length of time we waited for the chef to appear at the hot food station

We visited with three adults and a child. Food quality was above average. The seafood selection was very good. The meat section was a bit of a worry with the chef acting quite irritated someone might want to be served. I would have helped myself if you put the cooked meat, now cold, within reach. Salads were excellent. Deserts looked fantastic but were a little tasteless. Too little cocoa, too little sugar. The custard tart was spot on tho. All in all a decent experience, but with the choice available in the city, we are unlikely to return as we feel some places hit it out of the ballpark, at times for less money too. Staff were perfect, prompt and very very courteous. The location is awesome and the atmosphere very nice. 4/5 is about right.

I thought the young waiting staff were very good; they were well presented, polite and attentive. The customer service overall was very good - they even provided a slice of birthday cake and sang "Happy Birthday" for my wife. Well done team!

It's interesting how there was less variety on Thursday compared to when I was there earlier in the month on a Saturday. However, the price was still the same. I was looking forward to caper berries and sashimi. In saying that we love it more at Atlas than we do at the other restaurant we've been to for years. Also we are glad the truck arrived with the fresh oysters. Yay!!! Always a fav. Also we still walked away with a very satisfied puku as there was plenty of other kai to choose from. Staff were fantastic and very hospitable as always. So thank you very much for making our end of year work dinner a rewarding occasion.

We really wanted to like the meal as the staff were trying so hard. However, the food was very bland, with not much in the way of a meat selection, except for a thin bit of sirloin which was cooked on the grill. More sauces or dressings would have enlivened the salads as well. However, the seafood to start was very nice and plentiful.
