We recently visited Yalumba to celebrate Women's day and must say, quite enjoyed the buffet spread on a Tuesday. The ambience was calm and perfect for an afternoon time-out, the salad bar was the highlight, main course had good options though the dim-sums and meat pies were cold, and the desserts could have done better. Our server, P.Bala was a... More

I'll give it 5 stars just for the quick toaster. Truly international, dizzying array of foods. Artisan breads, fruits, cured meats. Omelets, pancakes waffles made to order. Finished off with superb coffee. One of the best anywhere.

The restaurant is located inside Le Meridien Hotel on the airport road opposite the airport, at the back of Prime hospital and close proximity with the Albustan hotel. It was a special seafood night. Great food, unlimited seafood, lots of makis and sushis and green salads and fruits as well. We will definitely come back again for another seafood night.

We went there with some friends to enjoy "Noche Latina" buffet and we were really impressed with the variety and quality of the food. The ceviches are a must. The Sancocho and arepas were phenomenal.
