This is a family restaurant. Basic large and usually a buffet. We went for breakfast each day and did enjoy a pre ordered seafood platter one evening. There is another high end restaurant at the resort so it is good to have a choice

Very pleasantly surprised of the quality of the food at the Maheno Restaurant. We had the seafood stack and shared two between six people and there was more than enough food for all. The freshness of the seafood was fabulous and the taste amazing. Highly recommend booking a table here if you are staying at the Kingfisher Bay Resort. We... More

We were not staying at the resort but camping, so this was a treat for lunch. It was ok, average the special fish and chips was ok, I had food envy for the steak sandwich but all in all it was average for a place like this. I expected much more.

This Restraunt was so disappointing in every way. I do write this review with a heavy heart, but it must be said that the menu needs to be re-worked and fresher food needs to be used! The prices you pay for food on this island are top dollar, and expect more for your money, than what we received, unfortunately the... More

Breakfast and lunch were fine but our dinner there was straight out of Fawlty Towers. In a relatively empty restaurant we were seated at a table just inside a door where the cold wind blew whenever the door opened. We were not given water for the table or offered the opportunity to order a drink. We ordered the seafood platter... More

The food my family and I ate at Maheno Restaurant was OK, but nothing special. I do think $40 a head is quite steep, especially half your meal is from a buffet. The buffet doesn't offer much choice, though my husband was thrilled by the icecream. If you have a self catering apartment at Kingfisher I 100% recommend picking up... More

We enjoyed several meals at the restaurant during our visit to Kingfisher Bay and were not disappointed in any of them. Breakfast was really nice. The buffet was generous with a good variety of eats available. You can just choose tea and toast if you do not want the full buffet breakfast. We particularly liked the dinner option where you...

We had a long walk on the beach and decided to have a swim at the pool then spa. Hungry tummy was calling for food so we decided to try the burger and calamari with ginger beer and white rabbit ale. The food and drinks satisfied our hungry tummy.

We stayed at Kingfisher Bay Resort for 3 days. Breakfast was included in our package. The Maheno Restaurant did a nice job for breakfast. The food was varied daily. There even was a self-serve pancake machine - which was interesting to use. There also was a fancy self-serve coffee machine - but the coffee tasted like instant to me. I... 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.
