Reviews

Always a great lunch at this restaurant. We had a window seat, so lovely views of the ocean. Staff are always excellent and as we unexpectedly ended up with our young granddaughter, they were very helpful and she had some excellent food from the kids menu whilst we had the seafood buffet. There is always plenty of choice, covering everyone’s different tastes, including a choice of vegetarian dishes. Empty plates are removed quickly and as regulars here, we really can’t fault this place and will definitely be back again.

Delicious. Fresh. Service was prompt, friendly and every need met before you even asked- I like that in a restaurant. I also like atmosphere and a view. The ocean view stunning and the atmosphere light, vibrant and clean. The buffet had a variety of cuisines and very tasty! We keep coming back!

We were greeted warmly and our request to have a table not at window was happily accommodated. Our waitress Tina was lovely, and prompt in wine delivery and cleaning of our table. Food was abundant and fresh. It was rather busy, but this did not take away from our experience... Well worth the visit. Looking forward to returning.

The food was absolutely amazing along with a beautiful view of the water. We were greeted professionally and asked for our booking number with first table. At the end payment was simple with no hassles at all. The day before our booking I had to increase the number of people and had no trouble, I simply sent an email and got a response straight away from a lovely lady named Faye. Congratulations First Table for the fantastic service you provide and the prompt polite staff.

Our family had a wonderful time last night, staff were amazing, very attentive, and we couldn't have asked for better service. We all enjoyed our dining experience, the food was delicious and I would recommend this restaurant to others. My grand daughter has food intolerances and staff made a special option for her so she didn't miss out. We look forward to returning again for a fantastic dining experience.

Our first time dining using first table at Windjammers was a great success! A window table was offered - the sun was setting, so it was an ideal dinner time! Of course it was a seafood smorgasbord with a great range of cold and hot food - highlights for me were Sydney Rock oysters, Balmain Bugs and the paella and for desserts, sorbets and pavlova stood out! As it was an early seating time an extra advantage was the quietness of the restaurant, so that conversation with friends we were catching up with, went smoothly! We would recommend the venue for anyone wanting a special treat in Wollongong!

All the staff at Windjammers were amazing, we were greeted with a warm smile and a hello by all staff :) They were very attentive.
Food was amazing, fully stocked at all times, delicious and fresh. My kids especially loved the ice cream bar.
As i was conversing with one of the lovely waiters, I mentioned that it was my daughters birthday and without expectation they made my daughter a beautiful dessert plate.
They all went over and beyond to make sure all patrons were looked after.
The restaurant was beautifully decorated, very modern and had an amazing view.
We really enjoyed our time here and would definitely come back.

The food and service were exceptional!
A lovely young lady greeted us with a warm welcome at the front counter. The staff were extremely diligent throughout the night, and were always attending our table with a friendly smile, which is uncommon these days!
There was a good range of fresh seafood, absolutely delicious. The mussels were some of the best i have EVER had! The dessert bar was decadent and offered a wide variety to choose from. I went back for 2nd's on the bread and butter pudding!
The overall presentation of the entire buffet was impeccable.
My partner and I were seated by the window with a gorgeous view of the ocean as we watched the sun set while sipping on our cocktails. The atmosphere of the restaurant is quite elegant and classy, with a comfortable family-welcoming feel.
THANKYOU for an amazing experience. We will definitely be back!!!

My husband and I are staying at Novotel Northbeach and we had our seafood buffet dinner for our last night. We were welcome by the lovely staff and took us to our table looking by the window. The oysters and prawns are so fresh and the food was all exquisite. It was my first time using First Table and definitely will not be the last! Also, would definitely dine again in Windjammers, the next time we visit Wollongong! So happy and impress with First Table and Windjammers!

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!

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.

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.

Hubby and I had a beautiful lunch at Windjammers on Friday. We chose the buffet and it was delicious. The seafood was constantly replenished, the meat/vegie dishes were lovely as were the fruit and sweet platters. Staff were friendly and attentive without bring intrusive. We highly recommend Windjammers and we will go back.

- dined at Windjammers on

We had buffet seafood lunch. This was supurb. The atmosphere was enhanced by great ocean views and background music. We were presented with:
● a fantastic array of salads (not the usual coleslaw and tossed green salad);
● Great cold selection of bugs, prawns, muscles and mixed salmon and fish;
● Hot dishes were tantalising homemade ravioli, pork belly, chicken and fish, rice & potatoes;
● Fresh fruit, assorted cakes, selections of icecreams and cheeses;
● Tea and coffee was also available.

Great fresh flavours and the meals were prepared well. Great wine selection which accompanied the dishes.

Would highly recommend this seafood buffet for lunch.

Restaurant was extremely busy though staff still managed to keep on top of things and with a smile.
Food was of a high standard though variety for some dishes, deserts in particular appeared to be prepared well ahead, probably due to the public holidays. Would definitely dine there again.

We have dined here a lot in the past and only stopped going because of the cost, but with the First Table discount, it was an opportunity to return. This was the best Sunday experience we have had here, the buffet was always being topped up and there was definitely a better variety for a Sunday lunch than previous. All the food was good as was the service. would have given 5 stars except It was so frustrating after a wonderful meal to que 15min to pay the bill. Hoping to return soon.

Great location, good food and service. Definitely a place to come back for dining.

- dined at Windjammers on

For a Sunday it was a little lacklustre. We have been on a Friday night and the food is supposed to be the same quality at Sunday lunch (same price). I've noticed the salads as well have slipped a bit in terms of quality. Unfortunately this is something that Novotel do. They go good for a while and then crash. They'll will pick it up again with the food when numbers are down but in the interim the food is ordinary. Its an equal drive for us to either here or the city and the ones in the city are far superior. If you get a special deal the ones in the city are only slightly higher in price.

Very limited selection no fish in a seafood buffet. Our table never got cleared once while we were there. Had to put plates on top of each other to make room on the table.

Wow!!!! I have never been to a restaurant that I enjoy so much every time we go. The food is amazing, so fresh and just really lovely. We always feel so relaxed and having such a beautiful view of the ocean is truly an added bonus. It’s very special to be treated so well by Windjammers friendly staff and amazing restaurant manager. I get excited everytime we are able to come back and eat here. The seafood is delicious and I have a special love for the prawn salad, the best I have ever been lucky enough to enjoy. It’s exciting not knowing what tempting little yummy deserts will be on the menu for the night. Thankyou for making us feel at home, the best place to have dinner.
