The Staff where great. Friendly... More

We had a wonderful evening at the Waterfront, the food was good, served with efficiency and charm and the live music by Clem and Coleen, fantastic! We danced to our favourite songs and thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.
