“Average Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

Having read reviews about this place, we had high expectations and visited on a Sunday afternoon. We ordered fish and chips and a burger. The fish was bland and very small and not good value for money and the burger was more bread than meat!! Found it to be a very average meal, and wont hurry back.

“The Watershed: Great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

The Watershed was wonderful. Great food selection. Loved the Seafood Laksa. Enjoyed the service from our waiter (young English lad, sorry did not get his name). Very friendly and helpful.
Would certainly go back to try the Risotto.

“Great food Great staff = Excellent night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Six of us ate at this restaurant last night and we had a very pleasant evening. Couldn't fault a thing. Food arrived in good time and the waiter was attentive without being obtrusive. We each had something different from the menu and there were no complaints from any of us. The management should be proud of their staff and this well run establishment. Look after them.

“Don't go on Sunday with young children”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We have been there at least 12 times on a Sunday morning, they advertise a children's lunch but you always have problems getting a highchair, I have pointed out before that 4 highchairs is not enough but today again none available so don't waste your time going there, shame incompetent management spoiled a good concept

“Good food - great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Have been here a few times, last time being Saturday night with a group of 7. The service was great. Nothing seemed to be a problem. I had the cashew crusted chicken which was nice but wasn't keen on the kumara chips. They were over cooked and soggy. I have always gone for the penne pasta but felt like a change. 2 of our party had the pasta and loved it. 1 had the lamb souvlaki which looked really impressive when it came out but she thought it had far too much salad piled on top. On the whole the food and service was good and would go back.
