All-you-can-eat: where you can tuck in and let loose without judgement! There are quite a few family-friendly, buffet-style restaurants in Sydney where over-indulgence is on the menu, and we've picked some of our favourites. Wear loose clothes, and enjoy!

1. Harvest Buffet at The Star

"Gaze, Graze, Repeat". The family favourite Harvest Buffet at The Star is a feast for the senses - there are five food stations with cuisine from all over the world, including the child favourite dessert station with three large chocolate fountains (see below)! You'll find delicacies such as prawns, oysters, marinated clams, spanner crab, various soups and salads, roasts with all the trimmings like roast chicken with Yorkshire pudding, butter chicken and naan bread, prawn mei Goreng, pizzas, a selection of cheeses, and so much more.

2. Cafe Opera, InterContinental Sydney

This decadent Land and Sea Lunch and Dinner Buffet in the CBD features fresh fish from the Sydney Fish Market and delicious meats from the Southern Highlands sourced daily. Think over-the-top dessert displays by in-house pastry chefs, beside overflowing platters of oysters, tiger prawns and mussels. Other menu items include chorizo omelettes, pork belly, Belgian waffles, all kinds of macaroons, and the Sydney-inspired Opera Slice. Lunch prices start at $59/adult and $30/child (5-12 years) Monday-Friday, and $83/adult and $40/child on weekends, with the weekend offer including unlimited sparkling wine and soft drinks.
