We ate at the Waterbar & Grill because where we had wanted to eat we were turned away at the door by very rude staff so we continued along the Boardwalk and found this place. It was very busy but the Greeter offered us a seat at the bar and a promise for a table within 30 minutes, true to... More

Very busy Saturday night but the service was very friendly and the food was fantastic. Very nice atmosphere and they easily split the bill at the end of the night for you.

Found this restaurant which had lovely views. The member of staff who seated us was lovely and our service started off great. Starters were fantastic, then mains were a huge let down. The food was misleadingly described and the accompanying carbs was completely disproportionate to the protein. From the mains being brought over the service became terrible... No one came... More

Have previously dined at The Waterbar & Grill numerous times so went again on my recent holiday in Cairns, and once again we weren't disappointed. The food was sensational, the staff friendly without being patronising, the setting wonderful - what else could you want? Every time I return to Cairns this restaurant will be on our agenda.

Good food cooked well. Very attentive service especially as I could not have dairy they triple checked my allergy. Steak was really nice. Could have cut it with a butter knife. Lovely flavours. Steamed vegetables were done nicely. Believe me some restaurants get this wrong.
