Food was boring. small steaks and deserts were not cooked on site. Bought Pav and slices. Atmosphere was dated and service poor. No one at the front desk when we arrived and we had to wait for ages until someone came down to serve us. Stink value for money.... had to wait all the time for anything on the grill.

Had a wonderful night last friday. The food was absolutely beautiful and the chef who was on that night cooked our steaks and fritters to perfection, I wish I got her name but she was brilliant. The wait staff were super friendly and we definitely got our value for money

poor hygiene control. I saw not only customers grab with hands from the counter but also the staff putting food hanging outside if the tray back in with hands though the spoon was right there. the taste is so mediocre some even gross like the vegi soup. the wine is the blandest I ever had.

We were looking forward to our 8pm dinner booking at the Atlas. When we go there we were told there was a buffet, no a la carte. Ok we could live with that. When we went to help ourselves to food it looked like a mob had been in there. There was scraps left, some dishes were empty and no one around to replenish. It’s was also quite a disgusting experience to see filthy tables around us with dirty plates, hardly anyone around to clean. We did not enjoy what we ate but were hungry so we did. Even more shocking we were told the buffet was $49.9 pp. We were completely disappointed. The only saving grace was that the manager acknowledged our sentiments and gave us vouchers for a drink at the bar.

The only criticism I have is I wanted a cocktail and there was no cocktails on the drink menu but other than that the food and everything was beautiful.

The meat was absolutely beautiful, as was the seafood and desserts, I felt there could have been a better range of hot sides however, as the vegetables were really dry and hard, the noodles were yum but not well suited to the meat and maybe some mushroom sauce or garlic butter would've complimented the meat. A better range for the kids to maybe some french fries and chicken nuggets, but other then that everything was beautiful.

Good night out with good selection of seafood, salads and entree. Mains are good too, can do with more fresh seasonal vegetables. Dessert selection is poor and below standard for a 4 star hotel. Need to improve in selection and definately not sundae vanilla ice-cream cones and lollies, this is not your budget buffet restaurant. Good service and nice restaurant.

We had a fairly good experience with them. It’s a good value of money. Most of the food tastes good and fresh. Grills are tasty, seafood is fresh. We arrived early at about 5:40 and finished within two hours. The rush hour starts at about 6:30 ish on Monday. We received a surprise slice of cake since it’s our anniversary. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Although they never changed our cutlery, and once they did it they didn’t replace with new ones. We had to go ask for them since there’s no where to find new cutlery. By the way, wasabi and ginger are sharing one serving spoon. It’s awkward when the wasabi stuck on the spoon since it’s so dry. It’s inconvenient for people who don’t eat one of them.

Had a great evening, staff were friendly and welcoming. Only concerns were that plate clearing was slightly slow, crab was thawed from frozen and lacked flavour and was a bit dry, and same with the cake deserts, they were also dry and not as fresh as they could have been. Other than that the selection was great, nice surroundings and a really memorable night for our parents 50th wedding anniversary.
