We stopped over in Port Macquarie on our way up the coast and a friend suggested we give the Waterfront a try. With little expectation we were surprised how much we all enjoyed our meal. I can recommend the Lamb but had hearty votes for the salmon and barramundi as well. Great dessert choices which we all enjoyed and Rob... More

We dined here recently with friends. It was a very quiet night so we got attentive service. We decided on the $39 3 course deal and were not disappointed. We had damper with delicious dips and then the salmon and chicken. Very nice mains with some veggies. The desserts were perhaps a bit smaller than the regular menu size .... More

As soon as we arrived a LOUD waitress called out "I'll be with you in a minute" so we waited at reception for her to finish setting a table with only two other tables of two. We were then led to our table. She went back to setting the table and ignoring us. When she spoke she was loud loud... More

The staff here are very friendly. The service was very fast (although the restaurant was very quiet - it was grand final night, maybe people stayed home?) Overall, we struck this place on a bad night I think. The door to access the restaurant from the river front was locked on arrival and we had to phone to get someone... More
