My friends and I have been coming to the Waterbar for years. We love it. Lots of choice on the menu. Lots of vegetarian options which is great for a steak house! Great wines, beers and cocktails to accompany the delicious food. The rib rack always a favourite with the hearty meat eating cavemen! We love it. It's our favorite... More

Excellent food, awesome wine-list and great atmosphere. The title says it all. What a great spot for any carnivore. Vegeterians should avoid... This place is all about cow and lots of it. I will be back. Again and again and again and again. And again.

Went here with my partner and his parents and booked last minute (which I recommend you book well in advance if you dont want to be disappointed). We were sat at a very small table with not much room for all of us but it was still a great night. We had excellent service even though it was a busy... More

I booked this restaurant for my husband's birthday as it is his favourite restaurant to visit when we're in Cairns. This time was our first visit with our baby son so I rang ahead to request a table inside as our son had been unsettled at times due to the humidity. Upon our arrival we were taken to a lovely...

They call it a steakhouse, but that doesn't give them nearly enough credit. My husband got a fish dish and I got the vegetable platter. Both were amazing. The portions were huge and everything tasted really amazing. As a vegetarian, their veggie platter was one of the best restaurant meals I have ever gotten. The service was really good too!... More

My husband and I went to the Waterbar and Grill Steakhouse last night 22/03/14. I was not overly keen to go as I am not a big red meat eater. However much to my delight the steak I had was to die for, divine, along with the heavenly garlic mash potato. The service was outstanding, I have to give credit... More
