It would be nice to have fresh fruit included and filter coffee. The buffet is very nice though, a big improvement from the al a carte and small buffet previously.

I would come every week if I could till I was bored with the food. Nice quiet environment for a Sunday lunch with friends as don't have to talk loudly to be heard

I was a bit disappointed with the limited selection of hot food available. Otherwise everything else was really good. Good service and nice ambience.

Some of the attire of other diners was very low class, it’s a shame the casino doesn’t with stand it’s dress code anymore.

This review applies to the Mothers Day high tea buffet. For $35, this was not good value. The savoury selection was very small, and all cold to luke warm (the potato vegetarian things were even frozen in the middle). The scones were dry and a bit stale, as were the macaroons. Wouldn't come to this again.

Fabulous time had by all .. as per usual. The wait staff were very attentive and tables cleared very promptly. Made to feel very welcome by Stacey who always greats the patrons with a beaming smile. She is very suited to her position. Thank you all. Kind regards, Ady Leigh

Fabulous service from start to finish. We both love the new layout of the buffet food..both Mother's Day High Tea today and the Dinner buffet. So easy to access.. looks appealing too. Excellent variety of both savoury food and the oh so delightful sweet things. Just one little note from me I missed the rye/brown bread paired with salmon/pear/blue cheese..I recall from last year...shame to make all your sandwiches from plain white sliced. That's a personal preference. Doesn't stop us both from giving an A+ to everyone involved. Thank you so much. Diana and Steve

We recently came for dinner and for a breakfast. While both buffets were excellent we noted the increased price for dinner in the Grand Cafe. The cost of $47.50 pp seems a 'little steep' and will mean that many of us may only enjoy the buffet on a birthday- ie: when a 'deal' is offered.I wonder if Grand Cafe could also consider 1 or 2 cheaper options available in addition to the glorious buffet?
