A Serious Restaurant.

First & foremost the Aegean Waters is a serious restaurant. However, it is also an iconic piece of Hervey Bay history having been in operation under the same ownership in excess of 21 years.

Once again another fantastic outing with the family! We visit quite regularly and it's always great to be greeted like old friends. The atmosphere is very relaxed and unlike most other restaurants they don't try to speed you through the courses, allowing you time to digest your meal and relax before the next course arrives. Outstanding food and service as... More

Absolutely amazing, fantastic cuisine, fresh, cooked to perfection, large menu variety. This Restaurant has to be one of the best French Restaurants I have ever been to and I am including those that I have dined at in France. The service is perfect, the atmosphere is as if you were in Paris. We in Hervey Bay are extremely lucky to... More

My husband and I were looking for something different on our first night in Hervey Bay. We decided to try Aegean Waters. My husband had the Filet Mignon and I had the Duck Mandarine as our mains. We had to wait a little while before the food came. The Filet Mignon was better than the Duck. It was cooked to... More

We dined here recently and were served a 3 course set menu. The menu choices were adequate and I enjoyed the Lobster Mornay that I had for entree, it was very subtle in flavour so you can taste it's natural flavour which was good. For mains, we both had duckling in a mandarin sauce and I have to say, personally... More

The setting is quiet although a little dated but the location is central. The owners provide good quality food without it being just too fancy. There are good options for all tastes without the modern artistic twists of odd food combinations. The meals are large. Watch out for the chocolate mousse at the end! Delicious but so rich. The sorbets... More

We have been a few times now to the Aegean. It is truly beautiful food with the unmistakable French flavor. The service is great - so friendly and they can't do enough to please. As a local restaurant it is fantastic - especially if you love French cuisine. Can't wait to go back again.......

Decided to try for dinner because of the great reviews on TA & we did walk out happy. I'm relieved to say that first impressions were deceiving, as this place looks like it hasn't had any love for quite some time, but the bathrooms were clean & well looked after which I always appreciate. We dined with our two small... More

This is a warm and inviting restaurant with quaint ambience. The food was lovely and the service was friendly, informative and efficient. Other patrons when we visited included families, couples and groups. All fitted in nicely.
