This was a buffet and felt the selection was good. Rather than having heaps of items like some places to choose from, I think it is better to have less but made well - as you have done.

It was excelllent, Only comment from the group was the food wasn’t being replenished as quickly as it should have been, but I’m not complaining as I thought it was one of the better buffet breakfast

We had our company social club event there and I must admit the food was superb with the variety of choices. The space is enough to accommodate us (40 people) easily and comfortably.

We always enjoy our visits to Grand Cafe. The staff are super-helpful and the food of excellent quality. The only suggestion is that we would like to see at least one vegetarian option for the buffet main course. Apart from the fried battered fish pieces all the other items are meat based.

It was a nice place for a meal although not enough vegetables for the main course. The buffet otherwise had lots of good choices, especially the seafood chowder.

Disappointing to hear your feedback Catherine. This is so unlike what we would call our normal service levels. I can only apologise if you did not receive the level of service that we expect everyone to have.
