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.

We had incident where the small cups of seafood cocktail was rotten. stunk so bad. Passed this to Drew who apologised and gave our group cocktails. Suggestion that staff regularly check seafood. Luckily one of our group only swallowed a small mouthful do hopefully will be ok

This was a return visit after a disappointing occasion. We were impressed by the improvement in service from our last occasion. Everyone was pleasant, helpful and efficient. Combined with the great food this made for a very nice evening.

There were ants in our water jugs. We had the same problem over a year ago so obviously it hasn't been dealt to. However, as always the food was great and the service was outstanding. Thanks Novotel, we'll be back.

Abit disappointing this time round. Food was below average. Needs more lighting around pudding area. There was no hot chips or fish bites for the kids like our previous visit. Consistency is key. Could barely here a word that the lady was saying when showing us to our tables.

the quality of the food was pour and incomplete (no vegs at all).The bottom of the desert was burnt. The drink service was slow and drinks were made incorrectly. I would like some response.

Please give your chef a bottle of Deodorant! The new practice of charging your credit card $100 on check in is bad taste Asking for balance at check out without giving customer copy of charges to peruse is not good Buffet meals available were great except the hot dishes, oxtail at a 4 star restaurant!

Hi there We had a nice meal at Atlas. We have dined here many many times over the last few years The food was good, service ok, atmosphere lacking. I was disheartened to see that compared with dining here a couple of years ago, the service and general vibe was lacking. I could see the staff didn’t seem very engaged or ‘happy, fulfilled’ in their roles? They were merely fulfilling tasks Two years ago under the management of Glenn Farnham, the vibe was much more ‘up’. Staff were more engaged and general vibe was more positive. I will go as far as to say that this vibe is a reflection upon management. If well managed there will be a certain energy and I felt it was lacking. I’d like to see things return to what it was for your benefit and the benefit of your patrons.

We were told over the phone someone would sing happy birthday to my partner. None of the staff did this and the waitress sort of walked up behind him with the cake so none of us saw it coming so we didnt even get a chance to sing. When we were seated they put us in the most awkward table right next to the buffet so we asked to move to a booth which was fine. Then we were sat there for ages waiting for someone to come around and take our drink orders. Eventually one member of the group went up and asked because nobody came. As for the complimentary water we had to ask if the jug could be left on the table because the waitress only poured us one glass. The food selection was minimal with more cold selection than any hot food. When it came to the hot food the steak was really nice but it was really odd to see the chef cooking fish literally right next to our steak... As for desert this was pretty average with minimal selection. I asked if there was any crime bruleesnd the chef pointed to the chocolate cake... I think he spoke next to no English. To cap it off upon paying we were actually under charged with three or four drinks not being added to the tab. Normally we would mention this to the cashier straight away but given the total disappointing service I didnt bother. This is our second time here and it will be our last.

The staff were excellent, fully attentive but not over powering. The food was out of this world. This visit was a first for us, but I can assure you it won't be the last. Would recommend the restaurant to anyone. Well done to all involved, I forgot to mention the chef, he did an excellent job on the grill. Thanks to all.
