I have been to Fortuna four times now and each visit has been good. Most recent visit was a few months’ ago for a work function. We were going to see the show 'Hairspray' at SkyCity Theatre, so this made it the perfect place for dinner. The food is very average compared to the buffet at Eight at The Langham, but it is cheap at only $29.90 for an "all you can eat" buffet dinner.

Fortuna has four food stations: Salad & Seafood Bar, Soup & Bread Station, Meats and Sides and Desserts. Some of the savoury menu items include: pasta/potato salad, shrimp, mussels, sushi (not very nice though), soups, range of breads, lamb shanks, Moroccan chicken, chilli mince and all the toppings to make your own nachos, ham off the bone, pizzas and roasted vegetables. But the real deal is definitely the desserts!

Think chocolate mousse, pink lamingtons with cream, cheesecake, chocolate mud cake, Pavlova, crème caramel, jelly, soft-serve ice cream, sweet sauces and sprinkles to go on top, plus cheeses, crackers, tea, coffee and hot chocolate etc. Great for kids and adults who love dessert! To me, a slice of Pavlova with chocolate mousse and sprinkles takes me back to my childhood! I rarely eat these sorts of desserts nowadays, so it is a nice treat!

As for the service, well, it was okay. Most of our group had wine with their meals. The waiter brought out mismatching wine glasses for everybody, which was strange. In addition, we had to wait ages for waters, and the waiter never refilled them. It was also interesting because we hardly saw our waiter for the rest of the night. There was really only one staff member visible - the chef behind a counter slicing the ham off the bone.

Overall, I recommend coming here if you are going to a show at the SkyCity theatre and want to have a reasonably cheap night out. However, I would still be willing to pay more for the buffet at Eight Restaurant, because the majority of the food at Fortuna just does not live up to the hype.

Went for lunch with a friend
The food was fresh and tasty
The selection was a bit more limited than I hoped for (not like a Las Vegas buffet). There was a double up on many servings.
The sweet table had some very nice deserts, but they ran out (arrive early)
I was happy, but won't be back any time soon, wonder if the dinner selection would be better.

Have been here a few times and think it is quite expensive for what is on offer. Food wasn't bad but nothing to rave about either. Overall I would say it is average.

Have been to Fortuna twice. Buffet fairly average. The service was standard. Bit crammed in terms of seating. Also refilling of buffet dishes abit slow. Overall experience ok. 3 out of 5

A buffet of a variety of appetizers, salads, and main dishes, with free flowing coffee or tea, drink all you can soda or juice. Bright and large dining area with efficient staff who'll clear your plates and make your table ready for you to bring new plates onto. Definitely worth the value of your money. Only downside for me and my husband when we had our anniversary lunch there last month was that we felt the dessert station didn't have cakes, and only found 1 dessert that was good enough, save for the small, pre-packed tub of vanilla ice cream. We would, nonetheless, go back and bring our kids with us the next time around.
