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.

Loved by locals and visitors alike, excellent service, great food, everyone (and by everyone I mean a full house, every time) always seems to have a good time. My partner loves the ribs they serve. Good prices as well! Put this on your list when visiting Cairns. And have goats cheese bruschetta for entree. Actually just have anything. It's all... More

Not much to fault here, when it comes to quality of food, overall price and attentive service. The location offers great views of the marina too, so try to grab an outside table if possible.

Our favourite in Cairns, and probably the best steak we ever had! We very much enjoyed the athmosphere with the view on the marina and the open architecture. The place is buzzing with activity and good vibes. The food is excellent and there is a wide choice of premium wines. All this at reasonable prices!

food, service, value, location all 5 star. Very busy restaurant because of it's great reputation, best to make a booking. Can be a tad noisy but that does not detract from all the postives

I've been to Waterbar many times over the last 3 years and the food never disappoints. For the first time, I ordered the salmon (usually always have the amazing steak), and it was cooked to perfection, crispy skin and not dry at all. If anything, it could've probably done with complementary sauce. Cocktails made by the amazing bar staff, always... More

I am a Cairns local and this place is our treat restaurant. We go there for birthdays and special occasions. I recently had three friends up from Brisbane and all they could talk about the next day was the ribs. I must have eaten at this restaurant 15 times now and have never had a bad meal!
