The staff were very friendly and professional. On arrival we were greeted warmly and escorted a table by the window with an excellent view.
All the food was extremely fresh and very tasty.
The seafood was especially great with a nice variety. There were numerous other hot foods and delicious desserts.
There were no problems with the first table deal.
We went there for my daughters birthday. So glad that we did.
We will definitely be going back.

Went to this place with a group of fussy eaters who were more than happy to lose their discount and order off the menu instead. Convinced them it was worth it and 2 hours later all you could see were satisfied faces because they had eaten everything from the buffet. There was a large variety of fresh and cooked food and a great selection of desserts and ice cream. Staff were super friendly and attentive and you can never go wrong with that view.

Went on Saturday dinner to celebrate my best friends 75th birthday. The all you can eat seafood buffet was very good, the oysters were beautiful good size tasty with a nice creamy taste, plenty of prawns crabs and Balmain bugs also a big choice of hot dishes. The desserts looked good, but to full to try them but I'm sure they would have been as nice as all the other dishes we tried. Service was very good tables cleared efficiently. The discount was greatly appreciated saved a lot of money, will definitely be using First Table again.

Fantastic location and delicious food especially the prawns and oysters. Kids loved the cupcake making station and the ice cream cart. Unfortunately was advised the Table First voucher did not apply to kids... but that was sorted out for us pretty quickly. Would definitely go back.

Seafood buffet was excellent nice range and delicious options. The mains leave a little to be desired, almost act like fillers (pasta in sauce etc) although the pork was delicious but you gonfor the seafood anyway and that’s awesome! Desserts also great! Amazing staff and service!

I was disappointed by the variety of food available. The hot food did not look appealing and was very boring. The Bbq meats were tough. I've been to others and paid the same price eg bazzar gold coast and got alot more variety

We have used Firsttable twice now and it works very well. Had follow up when we needed it so very happy with the whole setup. We left Windjammers definitely not hungry . However their hot selection was very basic not a great deal of choice or anything to recommend.

Nice place, clean and tidy with great views.
Cold buffet was great, a lot of choice.
Hot buffet not so, bland and tasteless warmed up dishes like you might find at a motorway service station.
My wife said desserts were good, I would have preferred cheeses until I found there were no crackers or suitable biscuits.
Coffee from the machine awful, as was some strange orange cordial (?) best stick to water.
Service excellent from friendly attentive staff.
But for $50 a head? No thanks, not even close.

What an amazing buffet! The range and quality of food was excellent, and the servers were friendly and very helpful. My son and husband filled their plates several times with absolutely delicious dishes, and I wasn't able to fit in another thing! My son's girlfriend is allergic to shellfish, so we were a bit worried about the buffet, but we didn't need to worry at all. There was plenty for her to choose from and we all had a fabulous time. And what great value—we will certainly be back!

Seafood was perfect. Lovely creamy oysters. Squid was divine. Lovely atmosphere. Nice and quiet at 6pm. Only strange thing was mung bean soup; I mean who is going to eat mung bean soup when there is fresh seafood on offer. Icecream bar looked good but we were too full to try it. Service great.

The food at windjammers was great. The table service was fantastic. We were greeted by a lovely young lady who couldn't help us enough. The only negative We had was that we had booked through First Table 2 days before we were to go. On arrival our booking had not gone through. The young lady was more than helpful to sort this out.

Dinner for two, buffet was yummy as usual.
Lamb shanks was so tender falling off the bone.
Desserts was really tasty and different to the usual desserts.
The coffee machine is a great idea to wash all the desserts down.
Thanks again First Table and Windjammers for a nice sunday evening dinner for two looking out at the beautiful view.

Its a lovely restaurant with a great seaside view, the food was all good and fresh. My only problem was Id been there the previous week and there was more to offer, we had crab and the desserts were better, with the crème caramel. This week there was no crab and there was nothing extra in place. Food should be consistent, Couldn't fault the fresh prawns or oysters though.

Dinned on Saturday 2nd September at 6pm with our family of 4 for dinner at Windjammers.
Wow! The buffet was delicious as always but this time the buffet had so much more variety.
The seafood and salad bar had definitely raised the bar as there was so much more delicious varietys with seafood.
The hot food had alot of choices to please everyone. There was fresh stirfrys cooked before your eyes.
Wow, than the dessert bar had just put it all into prospective. Yummy! They even had a coffee latte machine to wash it all down.
The staff was friendly as usual, thank you again to Windjammers and First Table.

We have dined at Windjammers many times over the years, but discontinued about a year ago due to an overpriced lackluster buffet. But last night was different. The buffet featured new creative dishes that were tasty and beautifully presented. To add interest to the buffet menu, you could select special ingredients to be cooked in a tasty dish right before your eyes. The atmosphere of the dining area was packed with enthusiastic and happy eaters--not seen before.

Arrived on time to a welcoming greeting from lovely front desk & shown to our window table overlooking the best beach in Wollongong. Water arrived promptly at our table & we wandered over to the buffet. Fabulous range of mussels, Balmain bugs, prawns & beautiful fish in scrumptious sauce. Lamb cutlets, beef, pasta, vegetables, salads to many to mention. Everything I could of imagined. Couldn't believe the sweets table as well as an icecream cabinet for your choice of flavours. Great place for a celebration or family meal, something for everyone.
