We have driven from Brisbane just to eat here and go nowhere else when staying at the Versace Hotel. The buffet is fantastic and reasonable value, as are the wines, as is the service.

We dined at Versace Il Barocco to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday. Huge range of savoury foods both hot and cold. Large range of seafood also. Food continually refilled. All food good quality and flavoursome. The sweets section is absolutely fantastic with every sweet you can imagine including a very large flowing chocolate fountain with fresh fruit. Highlight of our dinner!! Service staff were friendly but slow to clear plates from table leaving dirty plates between courses. Over Attentive with pouring water which we were charged $12 each bottle for but not told of this charge prior to dining. My daughter was given a candle lit individual cake and a small bottle of perfume as a gift which was all very unexpected and surprising for her. Overall a very enjoyable dining experience but certainly not something the average person could afford to do regularly but for a special occasion would definitely do again.

My husband and I would like to thank Raj, Maggie, Rio, Monica, Carmen and Tim for making our dinning experience memorable. Their cheerful smile, kind words and professional attitude was a delight and we are looking forward to seeing them again on our next stay at the Palazzo Versace.

The service was mostly just pouring water in our glasses. There was list of available teas. The sandwiches had been made for some time and were a bit soggy inside but the bread had had time to crust on the outside. The sweets were ok. The empty tiers were left on the table while we conversed around them. We were not offered milk with our tea, nor top ups of our tea or sandwiches. Over all underwhelmed

You can't fault the breakfast, wonderful food , wonderful location. Dinner though not so much. Firstly you must tell them you don't want the seafood option or you will be charged for it. I wasn't aware there was a seafood option so didn't know I had to say anything and as a vegetarian this was quiet the waste. Also the vegetarian options were really really small. They need to think a bit more about not including meat in every salad and pasta, you really don't need to and so it cut down the selection for me even more. The staff are great and helpful can't fault the service.
