“Nice modern restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

One of the restaurants at the prestigious Hyatt Regency Oubaai. Like the rest of the hotel, its very well designed and has a great ambience, has outside seating and on the inside, there's an open kitchen at the center with a sea food display. Food took quite a while to be ready because it was full, seemingly most guests prefer it to the Cucina at the same hotel. Food was okay, small portions and quite costly.

“Lobster Lovers, this is your spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

The Waterside Grill located within the Oubaai/Hyatt Regency Resort is a very trendy restaurant that will definitely tickle anyone's taste buds, whether your enjoy seafood or meat, this is certainly a restaurant with very modern decor, a great atmosphere and plenty of good food.

For the seafood lovers, you personally pick your own fish, giant prawns or lobster off a bed off ice and with the grand grill area where food is openly prepared, you are welcome to watch the brilliant chefs preparing your meal if you are not preoccupied with good company.

And the food really is good!

Perhaps worth mentioning is the fact that the food (specifically your delish-fish) is quite pricey, as it is priced per gram, but again, the bigger you buy the more you get. What I guess also pushes up the bill a little bit, is that you have to order your side dishes individually (like many restaurants in the US), but for someone like me who is very picky about side dishes, it suited me very well and I didn't mind paying that little bit extra.

All in all, a great restaurant I will definitely recommend!

“Waterside Grill at Oubaai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

A great setting alongside the Hyatt Regency with great views and an attractive water feature. There is a classy menu. as it is a 5* restaurant with concomitant pricing.

“Quite a disappointment!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

Beautiful restaurant and the display of fish was wonderful. Our waitress was very pleasant and tried to accommodate. Unfortunately it was an hour and a half before we had a morsel of very mediocre food. The first course wasn't too bad but the main courses took another hour and were hardly edible. Very disappointing! This restaurant has potential with a new chef and manager.
