The site by the river was great, the drinks were limited (it was a function) but of good quality the food was exceptionally good and the staff despite over hundred guests were able to remember your quirky drinks order. Outside area as well as inside made for a great night.

I dropped in for a beer after work for happy hour a on Friday with a friend from work. It was just a 10 minute walk from work. Happy hour included schooners (425ml) of beer (Great Southern) or a cider for $5. I wast impressed with the beer so after one beer walked to nearby Renzos and had a beer... More

If you were unhappy with the beer that you selected, we too are disappointed however we do aim to provide numerous beers of a wide variety so that... More

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.
