Great Menu and Food

Great selection on the menu and plenty of options that I would have chosen. Even more delighted when the food delivered and it was amazing. Everyone's Loved the Beef Ribs chargrilled corn and popcorn butter ! Will be back for sure!

We just had a lunch here and it was a quiet time, but the meals were really very good - very tasty, creative recipes and generous (not bulked up with chips). The coffee was also excellent.

I was blown away firstly with the menu - it was so creative. Then when we all got our food (I got the scallop risotto with pork belly), I couldn't stop raving about it. This place was as good as many top restaurants in Sydney that I have been to. I highly recommend you check it out for yourself. I... More

I recently dined here with a group of friends from Melbourne and Sydney and we were surprised at the great range on the menu. Almost all of us picked something different and none of us could fault it! I had the Ribs that were marinated in a coffee and maple glaze. It melted in your mouth. We could not fault... More

Blue Water was recommended to us because there's a playground to keep the kids occupied. However when we went the whole back section was booked for a private party, and while the kids could still use the playground, there was nowhere we could sit and keep an eye on them. So we all sat in the bar area ... didn't... More

Four friends went for dinner on a Sunday and arrived to hear the last of the live music which is on from 3-6pm. Sorry we were so late arrived as what we heard was great. The menu was excellent giving a variety of choices. We had the Crispy Skin Duck with Duck Tortellini with mushrooms in stock & topped with... More

Came with my husband for dinner. Restaurant not very busy. Some items were not available on the menu. Had to wait a while for our meals, was told they were one chef down. The food was good, enjoyable and tasty. The dessert menu did not appeal to us. The service (apart from the timing of the meals) was pleasant and... More

four of us ate a lunch here and had a just average meal. the fish dish was simple and lacked any true flavor layering to make you want more. the pizza had a tomato sauce which lacked any depth. it may well have just come right out of a can. common' guys, show some passion for the culinary art.

Great relaxed atmosphere. Possibly a little bit like a bar for some. Service was quick, and confident. Drinks arrived virtually instantaneously. Kids were well looked after - kids menu, playground.
