A very busy weekend at Alton Towers but we only queued for 10 mins and its a great way to feed hungry mouth. All you can eat pizza, Pasta and Salad. and endless soft drink. Great Salad bar and the Pizzas where great to, just found the pasta a bit uninspiring. Tips. Starve them around the park and drop in... More

Visited the restaurant during our visit in October, pizzas and pastas were always extremely hot and fresh food was constantly coming out of the ovens which was great! The food tasted great and as an all you can eat I feel I got my money's worth...!

We ate here as part of our visit to Alton Towers for Scarefest. The restaurant is small and crowded given the footfall it receives at busy times. It was rammed when we visited and we were lucky to get a table when we did as there was a massive queue when we left. The food itself was really quite good... More

Good prices, food is tasty and the buffet well stocked. The only thing I would add is if you've already paid for the refillable Alton towers drink it should be usable in the eateries too.

Restaurant full although promptly found a table, service very quick. All you can eat pasta, pizza, salad and drink just right for adult and 2 young ladies. Food was quickly replenished when empty by staff. Lovely thank you.

We turned up at 4.30pm for an early dinner for our two young kids before driving home after a wonderful day at Alton towers and a wonderful stay at Alton towers hotel the night before. When we arrived the staff were only interested in closing down for the day, the four of us ( one being a baby in a... More

Quick bite to eat at lunchtime Saturday. The line was out the door which nearly put us off, but that went down rather rapidly. Lovely food with a decent amount of choice. Bit over priced for children, think it should have maybe a younger child then a middle priced rate, my 3 year old barely ate and it was over... More

We visited here today for the all you can eat and drink pasta and pizza for £12.95. For the money we weren't expecting much but it was terrible. I wouldn't have paid £2.95 let alone £12.95!!! The pizzas were slimy and greasy and all tasted the same and the pasta was in bain maries. Over cooked and with no sauce... More

Visited yesterday £12.95 per adult for all you can eat pasta and pizza felt expensive but is relative to other food prices in the park. Lots of choice of pizza, 4 pastas and unlimited soft drink. The two salad bars were around half full and the staff were more concerned with chatting to each other and leaning against the furniture... More

The atmosphere in the restaurant was busy, but the building was large enough to hold an awful lot of people. The staff were extremely helpful, and the food was delicious and well priced. There was a choice of inside and outside dining, with the outside tables having a view of the Congo River Rapids ride. Food was delicious with unlimited... More
