Nice restaurant

Attractive circular building, with plenty of window tables. Short but appealing menu, good wine list, friendly service. Excellent value.

We have been going to Waterside Grill for years now as my husband is an Oubaai Golf Club Member. Last night we took some friends there. We booked at 11am already, they could not find our booking. The service was extremely poor. It is clear that they are all tired & not in the mood to work, they even said... More

The restaurant has some nice tables, and the food was good. However, it is not a large restaurant and when there are several young children in the restaurant it spoils the ambience. It would appear to cater more for families with children that diners with no children.

We took our friends to the Waterside grill last night and I had talked up the delicious creme brûlée only to find the menu has changed and they no longer serve what was the most amazing signature dish. The new menu was nice enough but the desserts were disappointing. The tiger prawns were also very tiny and not what was... More

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
