Great place to take family. Decent variety of food available to choose from. Sometimes the chocolate fondue is working, sometimes its not. Love the slushy machine available for kids. Friendly staff

Valentines was frequently our restaurant of choice to celebrate our kids' birthdays throughout their childhood. Haven't been back since they were teenagers but heard it being recommended recently, so decided we would make a return visit. Though it's said "one should never go back to an old love", we weren't disappointed by the service, food, or atmosphere. Not everything on... More

The valentine restaurant is a kiwi-style restaurant where family, lovers and friends can share a meal, wine, beer and other drinks. I am a frequent visitor. Especially on Saturdays and Sundays we have a breakfast buffet so we often use it with our family. Breakfast is continental buffet, but you can use it more often than other restaurants nearby and...

It is a restaurant where you can dine with family, friends or business partners. It is a buffet style restaurant, with drinks, beer and wine, but not BYO. The food is okay, and the dessert is good. Now breakfast is available on Saturdays and Sundays. Especially since it is free on the birthday day. The parking lot is very spacious... More

I gave this 2 stars as one of the staff who was also minding the bar and checkout was really lovely. Only had gravy for hot meats which I would normally expect pepper, mushroom sauces. Won't be going again. My favourite part was the chocolate log. A suggestion at beginning when walk in, offer bottomless drink there.

A special thank you to the team & Cathy (Operations Manager) for helping to make our Christmas special. The food was great and all waitresses on the ball. Great atmosphere. And a special thank you to Santa & his little helper. We will be back to dine at your restaurant in the near future.

I was here with friends and family for my Mom's birthday. The food was nice, the fried chicken was a definite winner. You get bottomless drinks, choose between bottomless non-alcoholic or alcoholic, at a reasonable price. The setup is great, they have snacks and sides in one area, deserts in another and mains in another. The food was still warm... More
