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!

Had dinner with my daughter food was excellent and service was good. Our steak was cooked to perfection and the potato mash was beautiful.

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 have been to the Waterbar and Grill a numbers of times and always come away impressed. I have had another wonderful meal there. This place has great ambiance, great food and great staff. My steak was cooked to perfection. i would suggest booking as this place is really busy. I can't wait to go back.

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!

Never had a booking but decided to wait the 20mins for a table we sat near the bar and ordered drinks within 15mins we were seated the guy thanked us for waiting - nice touch. We had steak which was cooked as we requested and considering the volume of busy tables quick. Reasonably priced as well. We went back thinking... More

Often come here for business lunches or even family dinners. It's an all round favourite and never disappoints. Food is always good and one of the few places where you can order a blue steak and have it served as such.

Out of all of the ones I have been to, Waterbar has been my all time favourite! I am 'lucky' enough to have a very ' on the go ' husband who... More
