Great cullinary experience

Although pricy the food was awesome, the setting magnificent and the service great. Like the idea of the open plan kitchen. Makes one hungry when you see the chefs in action and smell the aromas of the different dishes being prepared

Waterside Grill has great ambience, with staff that are very friendly and professional at all times. However, I was disappointed with the food. For starters, when entering the venue, a very impressive grilling station is situated dead center of the space. To me, this signifies excellent meat. Of course we proceeded to order a fillet and a sirloin. As the... More

The pungent smell of char welcomes you even outside of the restaurant. Then you are sit down near the propably nice view but can't appreciate any of it because it is just next to a draft and you can't stop freezing. Luckily, our wonderful waitress Zola sat us somewhere else after we asked. We started off with Whiskey, which was... More

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.
