This is a must in Melbourne. You need to at least experience this once in your life. Go on a weekday and make the most of their $55 special - with a glass of wine. You can't go wrong and you will definitely leave there feeling like you won't ever need to eat again. From fresh seafood to yummy salads,... More

Three of us came for lunch on a tuesday to celebrate a birthday. The atmosphere is lovely and staff polite. We enjoyed the different foods. There was Asian (including a papaya salad, tandoori chicken - definitely recommend!, vegetarian dumplings (average), rice, noodles, and my favourite dish- a spicy pork stir fry). The European section included a delicious roast lamb with... More

Although the range of food isn't as extensive as other places I've been too, the conservatory has focused on providing very high quality food and the friendly and professional service for the price you pay. Definitely worth the money. We went during lunch on a weekday so it was $55 pp, but everything was very fresh, tasty, flavourful and nice.... More

The staff were friendly and efficient but the food was average. I'm a fussy eater so I had hoped for a bigger variety of food - my lunch consisted of fried rice and sushi rolls...not exactly value for money in my case but if you enjoy seafood then it's something you'd probably enjoy.

We loved the food and service there and the staff is very friendly and attentive. I also enjoy so much their tea. A lot of food and dessert selection, and nice cold dish and sea food. Have been there three times in a short time with friends and family. You have to book!!! Better a few days before.

My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to I get a table on Monday night when it was fully booked. Our waitress Emily was very attentive without being intrusive and welcomed us very nicely on our arrival. We definitely will be back when we come to Melbourne. The variety and choices on the buffet took us around the world.

We come here to celebrate good news or events. Recently we came to celebrate a new job. The service is always lovely. The food is absolutely yummy, I do enjoy going for the seafood they have on offer, hubby enjoys the Indian section and we both indulge together at the gorgeous little desert island. The chairs are very comfortable but... More

Great all you can eat buffet - we went when the Christmas menu was on ($89 for a Saturday lunch time) and the food was amaaazing! My boyfriend and I were in our element and we will be returning soon in the week ($55 Mon-Thurs lunch). It is so worth it as the food is great, the service is great... More

Always a great friendly place to dine. I have had work functions here, a wedding reception and many other occasions as its a comfortable place to meet. Good buffet selection and extensive wine list. It was unfortunate that they had underestimated numbers on the day as they were understaffed, 15 - 20 minute wait times between drinks. We will continue... More

This place is impressive! We had a great table overlooking the river. The dining area is beautifully appointed and the various dishes on offer, sumptuous; table service was very good, given it was a very busy Saturday lunch sitting. At no time did we feel hurried. I simply loved the layout. It's a great place to bring visitors to Melbourne... More
