The eating season (aka the festive season) is well and truly upon us and we Aussies certainly know how to make the most of it. Dining out, picnics by the water, afternoon cheese platters, all of the above; we’ve got this eating business covered.
Which is why buffets are a handy invention. Maximum eating opportunities combined with exceptional things to eat and you’ve got yourself a time. There can never be enough buffets.
Excitingly, a new one is arriving on Thursday 13th December and it comes to your favourite drinking, dining and good time destination, The Star Gold Coast (who are changing things up at warp speed of late).
Harvest Buffet is the brand new piece of the upgrade puzzle and it is one buffet you are going to want to sample at the earliest available opportunity.
The space, previously Food Fantasy, has undergone a major renovation in keeping with The Star Gold Coast’s fancy new aesthetic. It’s people-holding capacity will increase from 100 to 500 (yay, more friends) and the design now boasts more of a light, airy feel reminiscent of the laidback Gold Coast vibes we know and love.
Abundant greenery is offset by washed timber and natural stone with accents of mint, blush and brass (our absolute favourite colours) completing the pretty picture. There’ll be floor to ceiling windows with views of the venues next-level pool, stunning indoor and outdoor spaces with the whole vibe sleek and modern, right up our alley.
A private dining room is available if you’ve got a party going on, otherwise pull up a seat and get acquainted with the other 499 people sure to constantly indulge in the eats.
Speaking of eats, let’s discuss.
As you know, a buffet is a magical place filled with an array of food choices to which you can return time and time again until you can no longer walk and/or keep your pants buttoned. So it’s heaven.
At Harvest Buffet said food comprises of an absolutely incredible seafood selection filled with the freshest of oceany goodies (including plenty of locally caught treats), a super stacked carvery station, a Chinese BBQ and Asian stations, a house-made pizza and pasta station and of course, one of the very best decadent dessert buffets you’ve ever laid eyes upon.
Including a custom-designed chocolate fountain, which is where you’ll find us, obviously.
It’s an eclectic fusion of buffet classics and the Chef’s unique take on some interactive styles of dining.
Go check it out for yourself, the team at The Star Gold Coast have outdone themselves.
