The harbourside provides a buffet style dinner option with a great variety of food available which was to a much higher standard than you would generally expect for a buffet restaurant. Thu also have a separate kid’s buffet area.

7.30 EUR for a bottle of still water , and they don't tell you until you get the bill. Buffet dinner without drinks included, but they don't tell you the price of the drinks until you get the bill. Only for wine they provide prices...upfront. Ran out of pasta in the children section and didn't bring more . Our waiter was very rude. She got annoyed when I asked for a glass for our Coke (instead of drinking it from the bottle with a straw), and she decided to "punish us" by making us wait for the bill for 15 minutes. We asked twice. We noticed another waitress was nicer, but they have assigned tables so she couldn't help us.More

Wonderful meal at harborside, plenty of choice for all. Lovely accompaniment with the violin and keyboard and a fantastic fountain show. Would like to thank our waiter for the evening but I never caught his name 😢. He was a credit to himself and the...restaurant 👍More

Priced at over £30 per adult, this dinner buffet was OK, but certainly not worth the price being charged.

The clam chowder was yummy, but would have liked a little more salt. The Bell Rock Bowl was very tasty, avocados could have used salt (and I swear I’m not a salt kind of person). Husband had the fish and chips...said they were good. We...had drinks at the hotel bar before our dinner reservation and they made the best berry mojito I’ve ever had. Wish the Harborside was able to offer that to us as well (I mean...same bar, no?). We were there without our kids, but I do appreciate that kids are welcome there. We sat next to a family with some really rowdy kids, but hey, they were probably tired and cranky from the park and we didn’t mind the noise (if you want an intimate couple experience, probably not the place to go). Overall, nice experience.More

We didn’t have a reservation but that was ok, we got a table without a problem. The interior is very big, like an impersonal american style restaurant. Service was also impersonal, unattentive and slow. The food was the worst part... not too tasty and expensive....We were so hungry that we had the whole thing but it was not tasty and disappointing (especially for the high price). I asked the bill once and the waiter forgot. The second was more attentive. Will never go here againMore

The best Restaurant-buffet at Europapark. A big variety of food, from BBQ to the Oriental cuisine. A must try. Whenever I'm at Europapark and up to Buffet dinner I'll eat here for sure.

I hate buffet-style restaurants. I mean, I really really hate them. However, I was persuaded to try this one above the other more formal restaurants at the Europa Park hotels as we had the kids with us and I was glad we did. The starter...and main course options were very good - I tried the rib eye which was delicious and there were loads of very nicely prepared fresh salads too. Veggie husband was kept happy with cauliflower and potato curries too. Desserts were average but this didn't bother me as I tend to prefer a starter. All in all, good value for money (especially taking into account that the kids' price applies up to age 14) in a very nice environment overlooking a small lake.More

The ex-libris of this restaurant is the adjacent playground. It is so good for families to allow for the kids to go and play while they enjoy a nice meal. The asian counters offer great food. There is also a live Mogolian barbecue, basically a...big plancha wok style. They make the food in front of you, with the ingredients you want. Just awesome! The drink selection is also great. All you need, to have a romantic dinner with your partner, and have the kids play safely in the playground. Seen many parents have difficulty in getting their kids out of the playground, be warned...More

We’ve never been so poorly treated in a restaurant. Terrible experience, will not come back. And yet, it all started well. We were welcomed with a glass of champagne and seated at the table we had booked for 1pm. But then, a waiter (tall middle-aged...man who can speak German, French and English, was wearing a blue vest on Sunday 21) comes to our table saying: “You’re really late! Usually you have to book a table and come as soon as 11:30am!”. He wrongly assumed we didn’t book a table (based on what? our looks?), and what’s the purpose of booking a table at 1 if we have to come at 11:30? However this is not the worst part. Then he adds: “Hurry up! They’re probably taking out the starters now, they’re closing. Come on! Go serve yourself now before it’s too late.”. We went to get a starter and a main course at the same time in a rush, worried the buffet would be shut down soon though the restaurant was supposed to close at 2pm. The same waiter comes back to us saying: “Told you they took out the starters. (they didn’t...). You shouldn’t be late”. He made us feel particularly uncomfortable, as if he we weren’t welcome there. When we went back to the buffet for dessert, guess what? Starters were still there! We ate quickly and decided to leave asap. Before leaving, the waiter tells us again: “how was it latecomers?”. When we tried to confront him in front of his coworkers, he walked away. Probably knowing he had done something wrong. Overall, the staff was nice and the food was alright. But this man ruined everything. His attitude was unacceptable. I wish no client to be served by him.More

On arrival the waitress came across and took our drinks order and I was given the allergen book to look at .After taking a long hard look at the allergen book I thought I had chosen what dishes would be safe for me to eat...Gluten Free .But when I got upto the buffet I was a bit unsure so I ended up taking the allergen book up with me .The whole experience of eating here made me feel very uncomfortable .The buffet restaurant maybe fine for somebody without food intolerances but it wasn’t the place for me .More

The theme was very nice.. sea-related. The food was great, but not as much fish as you would think with a boat-themed restaurant ;o) But for us it was good. We liked it and the servers were very nice. We will come again!

Enjoyed a large buffet catering to all tastes. Reception was very slow and not aware of the details of the reservation made. Only 1 waiter for the table. Others standing nearby not willing/allowed to take additional orders for drinks.
