There are better options neqrby

The Watermark is an ordinary restaurant in a precinct blessed with great food choices. There are too many others around to bother with this one. Food is average. Service similar.

A group of us have been coming to Watermark for the last four years on Australia Day. Our first dining experience was by far the best. We were in the upstairs area. Table was nicely set, food was nice and service was great. Since then it has declined in so many aspects: quality of food and variety on the menu,... More

Entree was straight out of the freezer and into the deep fryer, no real attempt at presentation, main steak was a very cheap cut of meat, badly cooked.

Drinks are okay/standard. Pub food is severely overpriced with their +$20 pre-baked re-heated pizzas being not only horrible to eat but stupidly expensive for that quality

Dropped into the Watermark for a Friday night happy hour and was impressed with the prices and service. Plenty of room inside and out with a happy crowd.Only gripe was the stuff on the tvs' which was on 15 minute repeat - was good but after a couple of hours music or sport would have been more appropriate. I'll definately... More

We booked for 7pm on a Saturday night. Wait staff courteous on our arrival. Pleasant restaurant decor. There is an external function room which appeared in full swing, but the music wasn't loud and wasn't at all imposing. We elected to sit outside as it was a warm night. Just after ordering our meal, a young girl staggered out of... More

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

This place is in a great location and serves reasonable food within a great atmosphere. However service is incredibly slow with service happening all over the place some were finished before others got there's. As for getting drinks well let's not be in a desert some got seconds before others got firsts. Will give this another go but golly service... More
