Sea Breeze Cafe brings a whole new level to buffet-chic



PHUKET: It is a common misconception that resort bars and restaurants are for in-house guests only. Among others, the Holiday Inn Resort’s dining venues are open to all comers.

At the Sea Breeze Cafe, they offer their popular bi-weekly seafood buffet, and there is no place better suited for this delicious spread than the resort’s poolside with its view of Patong Beach.

The Sea Breeze offers an interactive buffet experience with six kitchens, including a rotisserie, a hot wok, a grill, a bakery, a pasta station and a walk-in cold room for fresh salads, seafood and sushi.

Starting at 6:30pm on Tuesdays and Saturdays, staff are constantly and courteously escorting away guests who want a little sneak peek or snack before dinner time.

For 999 baht ++, you will get fresh seafood, sushi, soups, salads, pastas, pizza, desserts and more, and children under the age of 12 eat for free.

All recipes are prepared by a master chef with fine dining in mind – most notably the white fish with butter garlic sauce, lobster bisque, and fresh oysters and steamed mussels with a variety of dipping sauces.

Staff are very attentive, clearing plates, replacing silverware and filling your water glass happily as they walk past.

With so many options, lines are a non-issue and tables are seated away from the spread, overlooking the pool, with the lighting and atmosphere similar to a small French bistro.

As for the children, they are all well behaved, having their own buffet table of dishes and treats to distract them.

The open area dining is completely relaxing. And should you sit down at around 6:30, you will be there right in time for the sunset.

The most popular location is the barbecue station, featuring a front row view of the action and offering treats such as steak, prawns and crab-legs cooked right in front of you.

The excellent thing about this buffet is that it offers so many dishes for vegetarians and those who may not be very adventurous in the seafood part of their diet.

There is Spaghetti with chili and herbs, chickpea salad, margarita pizza, fried potatoes, all well-crafted and made by the kitchen to allow everyone to enjoy their dining experience.

To end an amazing meal, the dessert display looks like something from a movie, with everything from vibrantly colored cakes and tarts, ice cream and custard, to fresh fruit and a chocolate fountain.

The seafood buffet at the Sea Breeze is a beautiful way to end your Tuesday or Saturday evenings, and a lovely place to bring a date, a friend, or even the whole family.

Call to reserve your table at 076-370200.
