After Hyatt left so did the food

Very good service but meals are below standard. Can't recommend anything on the menu. Friends recommended the place after visiting the resort in August 2014. Unfortunately the Hyatt moved in December 2014. Their master chef left as well. The menu has also changed. Shaju

Enjoyed dinner as well as Xmas lunch and on both occasions can only but compliment the food and the chefs. The staff is observant and courteous. Chefs preparing food in the center of the restaurant was something to experience which sets this restaurant apart from any other in George.

If you stay at Oubaai hotel this is the only place you can go to for dinner, except from the club house bar serving pub food but not quite close to the hotel. The grill is nice but has a typical hotel restaurant atmosphere. Open plan kitchen in the center so expect to smell fish and meat all at the... More

Hubby and I just love the food at Waterside Grill. They also have a lovely wine list and the service is attentive but not intrusive.

Had a decent steak and my wife had some decent sushi, but felt like we were eating in a floodlit arena with everyone watching us - place needs to turn the big lights of and introduce some candles!

We were treated to a romantic dinner at the Waterside Grill & Bar. The menu offers a good variety of dishes. The staff were very pleasant and we had a wonderful atmosphere. Definitely, a dinner worth remembering.

wonderful meat selection cooked in front of you, great service and wonderful wine selection. There is fish on the menu as well but suited more to the meat eater. Portions are quite large so go with an appetite.
