Harbour Café is the international Buffer Restaurant. Eat as much as you like ! As I had tried for many different kinds of food. My personal opinion is the food is slightly above average! Limited Japanese food . Taste average as I had try many other restaurant the sashimi is much better than this restaurant. India mutton is nice. Chinese food never try as look normal? amount 4 type of Chinese Soap, I had tried the lotus soap is good! Curry noodle is nice. Tim sum is average as taste like "factory" make standard. The best is the cake and dessert! Smooth and tasty, not so sweet! There are limited fruits. In this café, free fruit juices, tea and coffees.
It consider expense because the café in Malaysia.
Sorry , to add some information about the hotel ...
Basically, the hotel location is away from town need a car or Taxi to reach here! Environment of this hotel is nice ... Fully Book on this week because of holiday and one big group holding seminar in this hotel.

While I do not have a Gd review of the hotel itself, the dinner buffet at harbour cafe is really good. We went there on Gd Friday and it was fully booked. They have allowed us to have the buffet at the lounge area next to the restaurant instead. For sashimi lovers, they have a wide selection of sashimi, including salmon, tuna, scallop and swordfish. Seafood are also done in many ways (e.g. Cold dish prawns, tandoori prawns, teriyaki prawns and buttermilk prawns). The dessert buffet selection is also very wide with close to 10 ice cream flavours!
I will come back again.

Ambiance is good, layout is good, but decent food.Why? some of it a bit off from the standard that i would expect, anyway, I think it is possible to further improve for it.
anyway, it is so much to choose from their buffer...it will takes you some times to finish all the available choice...

Located at Puteri Harbour, it is conveniently accessible via the Nusajaya highway from town in less than 30 minutes. Went there for buffet dinner on Valentine's this year. Ambience is welcoming with friendly staff greeting you all the way from the moment you stepped into the restaurant. Food selection is extensive with probably more than a 100 types of food. The restaurant is divided into a few sections namely the appetizer and salad, Indian corner with a clay oven, chinese corner with a noodle station, dim sum and brewing pots of stew soup, pasta corner, japanese corner, cold blanched seafood corner and the much love dessert corner that includes a double dark and white chocolate fountain, ice creams, lots of cakes and macarons! The blanched seafood are generally fresh especially the prawns and flower crabs but some local crabs we took had turned bad. The macarons too had turned soggy and soft. The curry noodle is a must try and the sashimis are pretty fresh. Although it is a bit expensive to dine there, food are overall delicious and leaves you happy.

They currently only have buffet breakfast and dinner but one of the staff mistakenly told us they have buffet lunch and even made us a lunch reservation. Thankfully, we called up again to reconfirm the time for the buffet (as previously when we called in they always hung up halfway and thus, we have to make multiple phone calls just to complete an inquiry) and learnt they do not have buffet lunch. So be careful when you call to inquire as it can be quite a hassle and inconvenience for such a mistake. And they should really learn to stop hanging up on people when they say 'hold on, we will check with our management etc'.

Located at Puteri Harbour, you can also admire the view of the marina from the hotel skybridge or the sky bar after meal or take a stroll along the promenade to help digest those extra calories. Worth a visit but they should ensure the freshness of all their seafood and get those crispy macarons in instead. :)
