Staff were unhelpful and dismissive, weren't shown to our table properly or told what and where the buffet stations were, buffet was inside instead of by the beach. Lobster and BBQ meats were out the back in a dark section some food not labelled. My chair pad was mouldy. Ants on the table. Food was lukewarm from the serving dishes.... More

We had dinner siting in front of the sea with a beautiful view. Food was good but service was really slow and we had to keep calling the waiters to come to our table. From what w shave seen around its a good choice for a special evening out.

This is a must for the seafood night. It is all you can eat, and is very good. The Park Royal offers a different theme ever night if you do not want to go out some nights.

Good quality food at a reasonable price, get a table overlooking the sea for a great sunset. The service was very good from a friendly staff.

We came for the candlelight dinner. From start to finish the service was excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. The set menu food was very well presented and tasted lovely. Wife presented with a red rose and table decorated with hearts. Would highly recommend to come here. The rib eye steak melted in my mouth. Please go and enjoy.

The tables placed on the lawn next to the beach are fine, white towels and napkins. Wonderful view of the sunset. The menu is supposedly French but very out of fashion. However the Australian veal and New Zealand lamb are of very good quality. And is expensive.

It’s so natural to feel romantic and being treated special with a candle light dinner. I was so happy that we made time to escape the crowds and traffic jams. Most restaurants have Valentine’s Day special menu set for the couples in George Town. Making this little trip to PARKROYAL Hotel is such a romantic gesture on his part for... More
