This is mainly a seafood place. If your not into seafood, there is probably just enough to keep you satisfied.

Enjoyed excellent seafood buffet with my wife on the 8th of March (International Women's Day). Great selection & excellent value for money at $50 per person. Love their staff too. They are very polite and actually SMILE! Will come again soon!

Great buffet range from the healthy to the little bit naughty (but those pancakes are so very nice). The eggs Benedict are always delicious - order them from the very friendly wait staff.

Enjoyed the lunch and breakfast buffet during a work trip to the Novotel Northbeach. The buffet offered many options and the famed seafood section was full of oysters, prawns, balmain bugs and crab. It was delicious although I thought that the crab and bugs were a little dry/could have used a little flavour. The breakfast buffet was full of options... More

We stayed at the Novatel Hotel and had the buffet breakfast downstairs at The Windjammer Restaurant. It was a delicious way to finish our weekend before heading home. Thank you to all the staff.

I enjoyed two dinners at Windjammers. On the first occasion I opted for the buffet. The hot foods are a disappointment. The antipasto is pleasing. The bread, tasteless. Pre-packaged butter is a pet hate of mine. The chocolate mouse, delicious. On the second occasion I ordered a la carte. The mushroom risotto was nicely prepared and the entre size, ample.... More

Very disappointing the total cost was $550.00 we had the buffet. The only part of the meal that was nice were the oysters. In our opinion the prawns did not have any flavour (frozen). In the hot food lamb was tough fish had no flavour and the goulash liked body. Overall disappinting.
