Nothing beats a buffet, don’t you think? They’re the ultimate easy – and delicious – family meal! Here are a few of our favourites.

Bazaar @ QT Gold Coast

We couldn’t round up the Gold Coast’s best buffets without mentioning Bazaar. One of many restaurants situated in the QT Hotel, Bazaar is a favourite for romantic getaways, family holidays and friendly catch-ups alike. Their spread is always delicious – a smorgasbord of global street food flavours from slow cooked meats to fresh seafood – but we particularly love their fun events, like their High Teas, drag bingo and Christmas celebrations.


Four Winds 360 Revolving Restaurant

Located in Surfers Paradise’s Crown Plaza, there’s no buffet experience quite like the one on offer at Four Winds. The revolving restaurant boasts literal panoramic views from the ocean to the hinterland, and is the perfect place to watch the Glitter Strip light up at night. They’re currently closed due to COVID, but keep an eye on their website for their exciting reopening!


Harvest Buffet

The Star is excited to announce the return of its beloved Harvest Buffet from December 3! Prepare for your senses to be overloaded with their fresh seafood, carvery roasts, crowd-pleasers (pizza, pasta, curries and more) and their decadent dessert bar. There’s seriously something for everyone. Bring the family for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and keep an eye on their website and social media channels for their upcoming specials and events.


Il Barocco

Take everything you love about a good buffet and add a serving of Italian flair, and you’ve got Il Barocco! Italian food is beloved the world over for its simple flavours, fresh ingredients and unbeatable combinations, and Il Barocco’s buffet is no different. They hero regional produce and the highest quality seafood to deliver a buffet experience like no other, all from the luxurious Palazzo Versace.


Citrique Restaurant

Ocean and paddock to plate dining gets the fancy treatment at Citrique, situated in the heart of Surfers Paradise. Built on a promise to deliver consistently chic dining experiences to its patrons, it’s the perfect destination for a weekend long lunch, seafood market experience or intimate dinner. Their full buffet breakfast is hard to beat, delivering a delicious array of house baked pastries, fresh fruit and more.
