Used to go here occasionally as the kids really enjoyed it. The last time I took my family of four, all of us ended up sick with vomiting and diarrhoea. Not surprisingly we haven't been back since.

This used to be a great place, but the last couple of times I have been there the food has been very ordinary and with a family it is prohibitively expensive. Others may find value, but I can't any longer.

What a joke!!! This place has the worst food in Canberra! It's so hot in the restaurant so the ice cream was melted and everything was deep fried. What a waste of money!

Hard to say anything positive. The beer was hot, soft drinks flat and watery. Hot food was cold and for some reason the desert jelly and pavlova was salty.

The owners still try hard but it isnt what it used to be. No more drink as much as you like though water is free and nice and the food is not as tasty as is used to be. The range is still reasonable for the cost but with soup a bit cold, food a little on the stale side... More

The variety of food is okay, however the quality seems so be on the decline over the years. What was a huge turn off was seeing a couple of kids handling food like the jelly and then putting it back. These kids are obviously the parents responsibility and there is a sign that says no unaccompanied kids at the buffet,... More

We weren't expecting too much because it was obviously a cheap buffet style place. However it was quite honestly the worst food I've ever paid for. Every piece of meat looked so dry as to be inedible. The soup was gluggy, lumpy and off-colour. The salads looked slimy and I didn't even think about trying the prawns and oysters that... More

We went in a group, including small children, so it was a bit noisy - others had children there too though. There were also workers there in their hi vis gear, so it is definitely not an upmarket restaurant. For approx $22 each you can eat to your heart's content. Food is OK, nothing special, but it is fine for... More

Eaten there before and we were satisfied. This time it was very sub - par. Food was cold, seafood was slimy and fruit was spoiling. Floor was very sticky around drink area. Drinks were low in flavour (not enough syrup in softdrink) and staff endorsed that. Very reluctant to return.

The price advised on their site differed to what I was charged, when I mentioned this they removed the credit card surcharge. HOWEVER I would have preferred if they charged the advertised & lesser amount! PS. chilled TAP water costs 50c per bottle..!
