Visited after reading positive reviews and following a holiday with some very average meals out. The restaurant is slightly tucked away up a hill and it would be a good walk uphill without a car, but the benefit of this is the extensive view over the bay. Venue was very quiet on a Wednesday night but was a particularly pleasurable... More

This is a great place to go. Food and service was brilliant and the view to die for. We went for lunch and they have the same menu for dinner that we would of went back for but they do not open for dinner on Sunday & Monday. The value for money was a plus. Not to be missed when... More

Just got back from a visit to Oz and this was the best food we had on the whole trip and very reasonably priced! No other place in Rainbow Beach is worth the effort, the Waterview is the place to go and the view of Fraser Island is magic!

Having had a rather disappointing experience at a similar restaurant the day before we visited the Waterview, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of both the food and the service at this rather 'out of the way' restaurant, set some distance from the main shopping street of Rainbow Beach. We arrived for lunch at 1pm, mid-week and were sorry... More

I went with my family for dinner and the food, service and atmosphere was really impressive. The entree of calamari and the main of king prawns on the marble stone were especially delicious! Would highly recommend a visit if you are a food-lover, you will not be disappointed. Can't wait to go to go back on our next holiday.

My husband, daughter and I went to the Waterfront Bistro and could not have been more impressed!!! The king prawns as entree would delicious, the Surf & Turf and Wagyu on the stone plate was by far the best meal we have ever had!! Good price for excellent quality food, we paid nearly the same $$ at The Surf club... More
