Amazing restaurant to dine at. Would pay full price for this buffet and that’s not something I say often. All food was so tasty and cooked so well. Customer service was also impeccable. Will definitely be dining here again in the future.

Was a good night with a great selection of seafood and other hot foods. Plenty of crab and prawns, oysters, mussels and other seafoods. Roast pork, wood fired pizza and curry were all great. The dessert selection was awesome. Service was brilliant. Was a good night

The seafood at the Citrique Restaurant buffet was of an excellent quality and tasted great. The Latino "theme dishes" were delicious and added an extra dimension to the evenin' experience, which was to celebrate a relative's 80th birthday. The service was also of a very high standard.

Even though it was a Monday night, the restaurant was busy. Despite this, the selection of buffet food was always maintained as it was on arrival. There is something for everyone here- seafood with fresh prawns and oysters, spanner crabs and mussels, roast meats and vegies, sushi, oven-baked pizza and salads. The baked salmon was magnificent! The desserts were beautiful too, with a wide range to appeal to both children and those who love fine dining. The staff coped well and were attentive during the meal, but expect a bit of a queue as they get diners into the restaurant and when paying. The First Table offer is wonderful value for money and we shall definitely return with other friends and family who also enjoy a seafood buffet!

This was first time we’ve booked on First Table. I’m so impressed with how easy it was and that the discount was honoured by the restaurant no questions asked. I’ve told everyone I know about first table! Critique at the Marriott was awesome value having chosen the seafood buffet to celebrate my husbands birthday with friends. We’ll be back!

We had a lovely time from start to finish. The service is professional and we felt looked after. Nobu was our waiter. He was extremely helpful, friendly and attentive.
The seafood buffet was terrific and I suppose the best review is that we will come again, but not too soon. Need time to recover!!!
It was brilliant!

A great experience with an enticing array of dishes. The seafood was extensive and of high quality. The ambience was very relaxing and comfortable. Highly recommend Citrique to anyone that loves a buffet or seafood!

We had a lovely dinner at Citrique seafood buffet. The food was very good, as was the service. We had no problem whatsoever receiving the 50% discount on the food, we just showed our booking on our phone. We were very pleased overall.

Some 20 years ago my family gave me a surprise party at whatever this restaurant was then called. My wife and I have been coming back eve since. Nothing much has changed and I say this for opposing reasons. The hotel itself is one of the finest in Australia, but it is starting to look just a bit tired. The staff is still superbly trained and I compliment the management for that. The range of foods available has shrunk just a bit, small oysters and fewer meats, but that is not unreasonable given the cost of ingredients these days. The cost of wines remains far too high, but it has ever been thus. My real criticism is that standards have dropped considerably, not of the restaurant but of patrons. Two major problems. The first is that although the Gold Coast is a holiday place, patrons of this restaurant should be advised that although it is in order to dress casually, clean and tidy dress is essential. Last night there were several patrons who looked as though they had attended a beach party before coming in to dine, and it was raining outside so where had they come from? The second problem was shrieking children and there were many of them whose screaming was constant and whose screams could lift skulls. While it must be a terrible problem for management to set a standard, surely if a small child carries on like a psychotic, deranged maniac, management should have the right to politely but firmly ask the parents or carers to control the child. Then if no control is exercised, the offending parents should be warned and then asked to take the children out. I understand this would be most difficult, but the great majority of patrons would then have a more enjoyable experience and, who knows, may be encouraged to return more often. Every major hotel needs a signature restaurant, so why not Citrique?

Great buffet meal - fantastic selection of food.
The kids particularly loved the desserts of course. We all totally over stuffed ourselves - but totally enjoyed doing it!

What a night our waitress was so good would have to be up there with some of the best service I've had in a restaurant. Now to the buffet the fresh seafood and salads yum and in the hot section the whole baked salmon with garlic cream sauce outstanding. Sweets so many selections I would of liked to try 1 of each what I did try was really good. It was a busy night the restaurant runs well you never seem to have to wait in a line at the buffet. Want a good night this is the place for you.

Excellent service, very attentive waiter. Great range of food, plenty of it and options such as pizza and roast for the kids. The dessert selection was amazing.

Enjoyable buffet dinner experience at citrique.
Staff were brilliant- no problems using first table and at the end of the night the bill already had the discount off .Overall the food was great, especially with the 50% discount, if I was paying full price then I would likely be a little disappointed as it’s a tad expensive for the amount of hot options available. One thing I found slightly odd was that the desserts didn’t have labels on them so i was having to guess what each one was.

Great buffet but advertisement on First Table was misleading. Alacarte and buffet notated as $35 however upon paying the bill learnt that each person was $89! There was also nil advice of price by restaurant when you enter or pay. If you’re on a budget as we were, don’t go.

Had a great evening. Food, service and venue 1st class. To top the night off, the bill was halved with the addition of the first table discount. Highly recommend venue and will be using first table every time we dine out from now on. Brilliant concept, you'd be silly not to get on board. .

As always, the Citrique seafood and international cuisine buffet was fabulous, generous and excellent in quality.

No issues with the First Table discount being applied without us having to ask.

Definitely do this again with friends, wish we could do 6 people on First Table!

One of the best seafood buffets on the Gold Coast and with First Table, without doubt the one with the best value given the quality of the food, the service and the atmosphere.
