Went to the Bluewater Grill personally around lunchtime to reserve a table with a view of the golf course and the kangarroos, was told this was no problem. Rang one hour later to confirm reservation and make certain that we would be given a table at the window with the view, was told once again that this was no problem.... More

Tapas night on a Thursday after work! Well how good was this night! Music! Ambiance, and food to match the theme perfectly. So plentiful and delicious! We can't wait for the next theme night! Been to a few now and they just keep getting better.

Sorry to say it is never a good sign the chef doesn't offer any apology for bad food (rotting rocket) in a meal. Lucky they did give me a refund on my meal because for the price ($26) for a seafood pasta dish which was very bland (and had rotten rocket through out it) I would have been very upset... More

My wife ordered the "Gluten Free" Bowl of Vegetables with the "Gluten Free" gravy and informed the staff members of this special requirement. Tastes great, all is well until she gets to the bottom of the bowl and finds pasta in it! What is pasta doing in the vegetables? The chef/cook/kitchen hand uses the same water they cook pasta in...

Fabulous views from the bistro windows of Kangaroos ,ducks,kookaburras and golfers. As I have food allergies the chef discussed my meal both times, then cooked specially for me. Very much appreciated! The pannacotta is to die for!

After having visited Bluewater Grill during our most recent visit to the area, I was disappointed, and the food and service was certainly not as I had recalled. Food was very ordinary- really no better than pub food. Entree came very quickly- a mezze plate for two. For the price, I would have thought we would get more than one... More

I dined with my Husband, In-Laws and Infant Daughter here during our stay in Nelsons Bay last month. All 4 of us had great meals! Definitely not your normal 'club meal'. We all had something different and each meal was cooked perfectly. The ingredients were fresh and the meals were well presented. The Dining Room was well set out and... More

Ordered Rump steak $25, was overcooked and vegetables were cold, and bland. Like a $15 pub steak. Mashed potato was so salty - inedible,asked waitress for a replacement. Told it was already made up. and could not be replaced. Mushroom sauce very salty. Partner had Chicken Schnitzel, cold veg and salty mash also inedible. Like a $12.50 pub schnitzel. Service... More
