Harvest Buffet at The Star Gold Coast (in the space formerly occupied by the longstanding Food Fantasy) is a decadent and fresh buffet, open seven days for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The stunning space boasts floor-to-ceiling windows with dreamy views of the lush pool area. The 500-seat buffet restaurant also features alfresco seating and there’s an exclusive 44-seat private dining room for more intimate gatherings. It’s truly a wonderland of food here, with a carvery station overflowing with succulent meats, Chinese barbecue and Asian-inspired stations, an Italian section with rustic dishes and hand-made pizza and pasta offerings, glorious charcuterie spreads and cheeses, vibrant salads, as well as an eye-catching arrangement of fresh local hot and cold seafood. There’s also a height-appropriate children’s buffet, as well as a very decadent dessert station with an endless series of cakes, slices, ice-creams, hot desserts and a very Willy Wonka-esque 2-metre chocolate fountain.
Oui, oui! February is French month at Harvest and to celebrate, the buffet will be brimming with traditional French fair including chicken a la normande,
beef bourguignon, French onion soup, Ratatouille, pork and duck cassoulet and potato gratin. To finish, treat your sweet tooth to a serve of apple tart grand mere, blueberry clafoutis, mille-feuille and frangipane slice. The French favourites menu will be served alongside Harvest Buffet’s usual spread of succulent seafood and global cuisine but if you’re keen to say bonjour, head here for information and bookings.
