We have stayed at crown several times but this time we had buffet breakfast included at Mr Hive. Having jot been in this pace before, we were delightfully surprised as to how big this venue really is. Looks are deceiving, it looks a very small restaurant but it is huge actually. The buffet was very well stocked with fine breakfast... More

Mr Hive is on level one by the elevators in the Crown Metropol. They have numerous great breakfast choices! The yogurt, fruit and granola is great! I had the big breakfast a few times, and it is fantastic when you want a big breakfast! It has at least a half of pound of bacon! All the coffees are great! We... More

We booked at the palms and included the dinner package at Mr Hive for a birthday. The food was beautiful and delicious but there wasn't enough of it, simple as that and I'm not a big eater. The staff were fabulous. At dinner we were planning where to eat after the show.

Good simple service, comfortable setting accompanied with good food served well. The waiters were well informed and their suggestion on wine selection was spot on. For starts we ordered a crab cigar and seared tuna. The flavours were Asian infused, with delicious sauces and accompaniments. For our main course we ordered steaks and the flavour did not disappoint. They stakes... More

Stayed at the hotel and had breakfast there during my stay. Buffet breakfast had very basic choices for the price. Food and coffee were lukewarm/cold.

We went here for dinner tonight for dinner in the restaurant area. We were seated straight away and ordered our dinner. From the time we got there the waiters all gave out the vibe they didn't want to be there and everything was a hassle. I had the most beautiful cooked barramundi. You order your meal and you order your... More

Took a while to order our breakfast from the menu even though it was fairly quite. My friend received her tea with the wrong type of milk. Then my other friend received her meal and we got the feeling mine wasn't coming. Finally, my meal came out wrong. Not worth waiting over 30 mins for. I didn't have anytime left... More

During a stay at the Metropol we had our breakfast in the Mr Hive buffet. Very good quality. This place includes espresso coffees from their barista in the buffet price which is not always the case. Food range was very good, the chefs helpful for a special request, and the range very good. Not the biggest choice or absolute best... More
