There aren't many options. And it's worse if you're vegetarian or vegan. My only options as a vegetarian were steamed vegetables, potato salad or steamed potato. Stay clear if you have any dietary constraints. Or taste buds.

Went to fire and ice tonight, have been there many times before enjoy the food, I just don't understand why cream is the only option as a sauce for the food the the chef cooks up in front of you when there are so many other options that could be used! I suppose it's great to try the first time...it... More

We had the buffet. Food was fresh and plentiful but disappointed that the variety of meats being cooked has been reduced significantly. Oysters were small but tasty as were the prawns. Local prawns in the chilled section but the garlic prawns were not local.

Buffet is over priced for the very limited selections.Seafood was average. Chef creation section was basic and limited. Dessert was terrible the banana cake was made in banana essence and coloured in yellow.

Went back again for the oysters and the grill. Oysters were tiny as before and some were still frozen but taste is strong as you can expect from little oysters. Tiger prawns were big and fat as well. Couldnt go wrong with the grill as order, love the prawns and steak. Hot food was surprising good especially the carbonara with... More

We booked for The Fire and Water night via Bookme and paid $42 vs the normal price of $58. Not guests there luckily as we found the bar small dark and unwelcoming for such a big hotel. We had to dine before 6.30 and luckily we got in early as a coachload of Chinese guests arrived soon after and swarmed... More

Usually I steer far away from Buffets but this was amazing. So fresh and tasty with Chefs cooking dishes fresh to order right in front of you! A great concept!

There's no way one should miss the $19.50 pp Italian buffet on Fridays. It's amazing. Very delicious. Highly satisfying. Pasta is freshly made right in front of you. You pick and choose your own ingredients, sauces, pasta etc. You get complimentary wine/ beer/ drink. My favourite was the vegetarian lasagne. Very friendly staff.

Thank Anisha P
