THE stan­dard ho­tel buffet is anath­ema to many a se­ri­ous food lover, but seafood fans will find it hard to turn up their noses at the pis­ca­to­rial of­fer­ings at Syd­ney’s Sher­a­ton on the Park. A ta­ble piled high with prawns, oys­ters, mus­sels, snow crab, oc­to­pus, clams and sushi greets guests at Feast (pic­tured), the ho­tel’s first-floor buffet restau­rant with ex­pan­sive Hyde Park views. The restau­rant, pre­vi­ously Botan­ica Brasserie, was re­launched late last year with a re­vamped look and name af­ter the city-cen­tre prop­erty’s five-year makeover. A new lounge, pri­vate din­ing booths and com­mu­nal ta­bles, plus an open-plan demon­stra­tion kitchen (with stone hearth oven) com­plete a more con­tem­po­rary pic­ture. The lunch buffet, which also has a huge range of non-seafood dishes — from pasta and pizza to Asian stir-fries and Ital­ian desserts — is $75 a per­son ($85 on Sun­day); din­ner $85 ($99 Fri­day and Satur­day). Bring dad for a Fa­ther’s Day treat, be­fore nip­ping to nearby David Jones to pe­ruse the sock depart­ment. More: sher­a­ton.com/syd­ney.
