7. The Sofitel, Suzette Buffet

All-you-can-eat buffet meets fine international cuisine at The Sofitel’s Suzette Buffet. Think internationally-inspired range of hot dishes, inclusive of a varied mix of much-loved classics and more adventurous offerings. Paired with a diverse selection of fresh, inventive salads, dips, cold cuts, Australian cheeses, and breads. The pièce de résistance for many though is undeniably the island laden with fresh local seafood. Savour Mooloolaba cooked prawns, marinated green-lipped mussels, Sydney Rock oysters, bugs, and whole-baked salmon.

Finish by filling your plate with the tempting array of sweet treats, all made in-house. From ice-creams, sorbets, decadent desserts, and a chocolate fountain with marshmallows and strawberries, you’ll want to make sure you leave plenty of room.

Lunch is available Saturdays and Sundays 12pm – 2.30pm. Prices: Adults $119, children $52. Dinner is available 5.30pm – 10pm Fridays and Saturdays. Prices: Adults: $119, children $52. (Prices differ on public holidays and over the festive season so check for current pricing.) 

Of course, with these prices, this is our pick for VERY special occasion dining – but hey it’s cheaper than flights to Paris! We absolutely LOVE The Sofitel all year round – they’re always putting on special events. 

Address: 249 Turbot Street, Brisbane City

Okami West End dinner buffets in Brisbane
Okami West End restaurant

My personal favourite!! Head on over to one of their 3 restaurants in greater Brisbane. It is super family friendly all-you-can-eat Japanese restaurant where prices start at $39.80 pp. Every dish at OKAMI is freshly made to order from the menu with 30+ options. Combined with the cosy atmosphere, this makes OKAMI the perfect meeting place for families. Because there are three restaurants to choose from around Brisbane, you can hopefully find one local to you. (West End is our local and I give it 5 stars – highly recommend!)

Brisbane dinner buffets that have now closed

Kookaburra Showboat Cruises – permanently closed

Sadly Kookaburra Queen has fallen a victim to Covid and the floods so it’s another buffet in Brisbane off the list! 🙁

One of the top buffet dinners Brisbane has to offer AND a show?! Perfect for a special occasion such as a birthday or Father’s Day, the Kookaburra offers a memorable dining and entertainment experience while sailing along the Brisbane river. Treat your family to an evening of city lights, live music and a contemporary international buffet – or why not upgrade to the seafood buffet and have a whale of a time! This is an absolutely ‘Brisbane’ experience that we recommend everyone do at least once (maybe twice, okay, maybe more than that!). 

Sizzler – permanently closed

Sadly this buffet in Brisbane is also closed. 🙁

A smorgasbord of choices for the best buffet dinners in Brisbane!
