We optedto eat at Mahenos after a number of other restaurant on the island were closed. They had some appealing options on the menu however their was not a great selection to choose from, this is unfortunate as the lamb that I orderedtasted beautiful! The remainder of the food is served as a self service buffet, which would be fine... More

We went to the maheno for our evening meal. We ordered the mains, not much choice here, and were told we could help ourselves to the buffet. The mains were either $39 or $45 which was fairly expensive and fairly small portions. I ordered the prawns in pesto but this arrived as prawns in a mushy rich sauce with a... More

The buffet was $29.00 on its own and was just salad and vegetables. To order a main ( of which there was limited choices ) made the meal $39 which was just too expensive. The Sand bar was shut ( Mon- Thur its closed) so we had no choice but to get sandwiches from the shop around the back and... More

We stayed there 3 nights and had breakfast here every morning. There was a decent choice of foods at the breakfast buffet, all looked tasty. I tried the pancake machine ... great pancakes but it takes a while so push the button until it displays the amount of pancakes you want then go get the other food you require and... More

Food here is overpriced and service not great. As we made a reservation for our first dinner at the resort, the attendant tried to dissuade us from making our 'unusually late' booking for 8.15pm as there would not be much choice left at the buffet. He was correct. We only ate from the buffet that evening as the prices on... More

We decided to eat at Maheno after a recommendation from an employee. It is called a buffet, but in fact it is only the salad and vegetables that are buffet. You have to order a meat, chicken or seafood main from the waiter. We did this and also ordered wine. It seems our waiter forgot to lodge our order and... More

We ordered the seafood plate for 2 ladies it is too much to eat. It was delicious but it was a shame that we couldn't eat all of it. It cost 130 $, which was a lot. Better to ask to share it for 3 - then you will be satisfied for normal eaters.

This restaurant is in a lovely position but the dinner menu/buffet concept unusual. The food quality was average and not much choice from the buffet. The meat pattie in the hamburger was dry, lacking ingredients, overcooked and tasted slightly off. A pan fried salmon fillet was cooked in an unpleasant flavoured oil - perhaps the oil was not fresh ?... More

A selection of hearty and healthy breakfast options provide the energy needed for the day's exploring. As lunchtime rolls round, the sun-dappled waters of the resort pool and surrounding wallum scrub set the scene for a leisurely afternoon on the deck of the Maheno Restaurant with the family.

Guests can relax with a coldie or a glass of red over dinner and take time, between visits to the buffet, to soak up the sounds of Fraser Island.Note:

This restaurant is open daily for breakfast. Lunch and Dinner times are seasonal - please check with the resort.
