We were looking for somewhere to have a simple evening meal and this was it! The food was great, delicious, and well presented. We were all served together - there were 8 of us all ordering different meals. The service was great, friendly and very helpful. We would certainly recommend this restaurant, especially as we hadn't booked until we found... More

We took The Wyndham Harbour ferry into Docklands to see the winter fireworks and thought we would find somewhere for dinner. The Squires Loft was our first choice but it was booked out so we went to the Watermark instead. The menu was not extensive but reasonably priced and the meals were okay but it was nothing special and cost... More

The menu outside suggests this is a tapas food + bar joint but it's overwhelmingly a bar + some light food options. The staff go out of their way to make the visit enjoyable and the spirits lists are impressive. At the Swanston St end of the Southbank Centre.

Staff are comfortable with consistently not filling drinks to the top. So apparently I need 100 characters: The quintessential alcoholic beverage encompasses a vessel filled to the top. Our drinks, round after round were consistently eviserated of our chosen nectar to our disappointment. Looking at the glasses of others, this isn't just us.

I recently attended a function which was in "The Loft" at Watermark Restaurant, Docklands. This is a great location to socialize for groups of between 20 - 50 with seated tables. The bar staff here were friendly. The meal was from a $60 a head menu with a choice of selections and I found the food to be very nice.... More

Attended a reunion function in a small upstairs private room at the Watermark. Friendly staff and a very nice 3 course meal. Drinks at a reasonable price. Would certainly consider going back there in the future.

Ordered the special which was 4 pints for $30. Bartender returned with 4 schooners. It was no big issue so I just told them i ordered pints. The bartender was so rude and wasnt happy about changing them over as if it was my fault. Maybe use your listening ears. They use plastic schooners instead of glass too.

A group of us have been coming to Watermark for the last four years on Australia Day. Our first dining experience was by far the best. We were in the upstairs area. Table was nicely set, food was nice and service was great. Since then it has declined in so many aspects: quality of food and variety on the menu,... More
