Interesting to watch the prices... buffet dinner $30ea some days, and $47 on others. Good with Accor-Plus discounts for lunch and dinner, but not on the $27 breakfasts! Recommend the prawn, antepasto or cheese platters available to eat outside the restaurant up till 5:30.

Our package was inclusive of buffet style breakfast. Although the provision was adequate we thought the spread lacked a bit of variety with identical offerings every day. To their credit there were low and gluten free bread options for toasting. Adequate but not outstanding

We had reservations for the Buffet, but we did not know that once a selection ran out, it was not replenished! By the time we were seated, most of the food was gone! We had some last scraps of the better auntrees and mostly deserts.More

This is the breakfast spot for Kingfisher Bay Resort guests. The buffet is its center attraction. Meals are therefore generous. Had a really interesting vegan noodle dish but overall the meals are basic. Staff are efficient and friendly.

Every conceivable choice for breakfast, fresh and hot, yogurts, pastries, breads, fruits, cereal as well as all the usual bacon egss etc, service was super friendly and inviting. Recommend this highly, especially if you are a big breakfast eater.More

A selection of hearty and healthy breakfast options provide the energy needed for the day's exploring. As lunchtime rolls round, the sun-dappled waters of the resort pool and surrounding wallum scrub set the scene for a leisurely afternoon on the deck of the Maheno Restaurant with the family. Guests can relax with a coldie or a glass of red over dinner and take time, between visits to the buffet, to soak up the sounds of Fraser Island.Note: This restaurant is open daily for breakfast. Lunch and Dinner times are seasonal - please check with the resort.
