On a Saturday night, we tried to get dinner and drinks. Try is the operative word. After being told we couldn't sit inside and should take an outside table and order food at the bar, we spent over 25 minutes waiting at the bar to be served. There were three barmen working, two managers watching on and three waitress doing... More

I met and friend here for drinks after work on Thursday Night. The Bar/Restaurant is located waterfront at the back of the "colourful" NAB Building in Docklands. What attracted me was the waterfront location and their happy hour which included $5 pints from 5-8 pm. The choices were a either a draught or a lager. There were also some cocktail... More

While my review may have been different had I attended on a dark, wintry and windy night in July, I instead spent an hour or so at this venue on a brillantly blue 22 degree calm November early evening when with the advantage of daylight saving time it was still light. I caught a number 70 tram to stop D3... More

Watermark is a consistently nice place to visit for a meal. It has an enjoyable view over Victoria Harbour. Food serving sizes are average and staff are always attentive. Like many places in Docklands, the prices are a little on the high side, but they are still reasonable. Finding good food in Docklands can be difficult, but this is definitely... More

Went to the Watermark with three other couples for a Saturday night dinner. We arrived early and enjoyed a drink in the bar area. The bar has a wide variety of beverages and plenty of different beers and ciders on tap. Our meals in the dinning area were very enjoyable, the menu has an Italian feel to it, but also... More
