For some of us, ‘all you can eat’ translates as ‘more than you can stomach’, and that’s a terrible shame. Auckland and Northland both have some real gems of fixed price and unlimited potential on the buffet front - from cheap and cheerful to seriously high end! Your stomach will thank us, so go forth and be greedy.


Fortuna Buffet Restaurant reviewed by elvi e.

We celebrate our anniversary at Fortuna every year. It is very romantic place for dining with your loved one, and there is something to cater to all tastes. After you dine, you are free to go to top deck of the Skytower. Best view in Auckland, for sure. Amazing dining experience!

Eight Restaurant at Cordis, Auckland reviewed by Clara D.

I'd been wanting to visit Eight for a while now, and thought the Seafood Extravaganza would be the perfect excuse to go. Even at lunchtime it was $65, but it turned out to be totally worthwhile. The service was excellent, with our glasses refilled frequently and empty places collected constantly, and the staff even introduced us to each station before we began. I'm not sure what seafood is usually available but we were very impressed by both the quantity and quality on offer during the special - oysters, prawns, scampi, sashimi, etc. The sashimi/sushi bar was great, and even had paua, while the seafood grill was also a highlight. I didn't even have room to try the meat grill, though there were plenty of options there, and the Indian kitchen's fresh naan was also a nice change. If you even have room at the end the range of desserts and cheeses are truly mind-boggling, and the chocolate fountain will certainly get many people excited. Definitely worth going to, especially at lunch.

Nothing beats the location! Right on the beach with a fantastic view of Rangitoto and warm and friendly staff to top it all off. I love buffets and this place serves a delicious breakfast buffet as well as doing lunches.

Gengy's Whangarei reviewed by Luna L.

When you go to Gengy's you need to have a game plan. Restrict food consumption during the day to save yourself for the feast, then make sure to pick a wide selection of meats to be cooked for you by the chef. Don't forget the vegetables!
