I try to grab a steak here at least once each time I'm in Cairns. Very tasty steak and a nice location.

We rocked up here without a reservation and managed to get a table with a nice view of the marina. Mains were Prime Rib Eye, Rump, and Pork Ribs. We also ordered a side of vegies, but that was too much. The steaks were succulent and cooked to perfection and the ribs fell of the bone. Definitely worth a visit.

Spectacular marina views, great service and mouth-watering food ...... beverages weren't too bad either. My husband had the ribs and we are going back to the restaurant tomorrow because he can't stop raving about them. I had the rump skewer and mash and it was very tender and tasty. 5-star food ... 5-star presentation ... 5-star price. Highly recommended.

There is a good view from the restaurant of the marina and the mountains behind it and it was interesting to watch the rain clouds come rolling over the top and tumble down the side. However, it didn't rain while we were there although there was quite a fresh wind which saw some people move from their outside tables to... More

We were unexpectedly child-free and took advantage to eat out somewhere a bit 'posh'. Hubby wanted red meat and it doesn't get any better than Waterbar for that brief :) Full rack of ribs for hubby and 250g steak for me. I like my veg and the only weakness when you order is that you are ordering steak as the... More

We always eat here every few months as their steaks are fabulous!!! Our most recent visit was during the school holidays which we understand is always busier than usual. However, it really should be no excuse for a drop In service. I believe the restaurant may have been under staffed the night we dined as we waited over 15 minutes... More

Vaunted as Cairns best steakhouse the Waterbar profits from its location on the Marina, catering to visitors and locals alike. Not sure if it is indeed the best steakhouse in town but it does serve good food with the Ribs stealing the fame from the steaks. Most of its BBQed food is smothered with a South African sauce after grilling... More

We have been regulars for the last 10 years and have never been disappointed. No one in our circle has ever been disappointed with what they've had, and the ribs are the best in Cairns if not Queensland, and I have a bit of a craving for them right now just thinking of them. Lunch or dinner it doesn't matter,... More

Great place for a relaxed lunch by the Marina in Cairns. Great selection of food and particularly liked that Vegetarians were catered for.
