Julia our waitress was wonderful. She remembered us from previous visits, and gave excellent and knowledgable service. Food quality was very good. We like the styling of the restaurant, and the space between tables. My sister and I will be back.

Food at buffet that was meant to be hot was very Luke warm. Variety including the basic sausage was very disappointing for the money paid Would not do it again.

We went on Friday night with friends and then decided not to go to Chin Chin in Saturday night, so we went to Cliveden a la Cart again. The Friday night waitress, Julia, was amazing. Best waitress ever !!! Food was excellent.

The Cliveden Dining Room Gin night in conjunction with Bass & Flinders was an absolute pleasure to attend. We cannot speak more highly of the night. Congratulations to the chef and his team upon the quality and presentation of the food - wonderful to see chef's able to show just how good they are in their chosen field. The service was outstanding - staff were happy and the evening seemed to work seamlessly. Nothing was too much trouble for these people - well done & let's have more of these nights. We were customers of the Cliveden room, I think it was about some 40 years ago - the transformation is different now but in keeping with modern times. Well done the Pullman, Accor & the Cliveden room.

We really enjoyed our dinners at The Cliveden Bar & Dining, especially their seafood buffet. the service is good as usual thanks to Stephanie the waitress. As members of the Accor plus we use to book a table for the dinner buffet almost every Sunday for like 2 years and the same for many of our friends before Pullman unfortunately decide to stop Sunday buffet dinner please let us know if Sunday buffet is coming back . Cheers

My partner and I came here and enjoyed the buffet. We were sat right next to the window looking out into the beautiful gardens across the road, with the sun setting it was just a glorious view. The seafood (the main reason why we came here) was so fresh and delicious. The mussels and prawns were enormous! We also loved the rare beef, antipasto and scallops. Staff were just lovely and efficient. Overall, I would rate it a 10/10 experience and highly recommend this place. We will be back for sure 😊
