I was pleasantly surprised by Dockside. The food was amazing and the drinks variety was very wide. The staff were excellent and it was decently priced, especially compared to the other restaurants along the waterfront. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I think it could be price a little lower. Other than that it is... More

We hired the upstairs area for my daughters 21st at Dockside. From the get go arranging the night with Hillary was especially easy and very professional. On the night everything went to plan and G, Erica and Luke looked after Molly and her friends amazingly well. Thoroughly recommend Dockside, Hillary and her team if you are looking to plan a...

This restaurant should have a much higher rating, at least from our experience. The food was ridiculously good, on all counts. Highly recommend the shrimp and goat cheese filled ravioli and the seafood chowder. The salmon main was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was an English traveler saving money on their way through, and was excellent, attentive and polite.

Looking for a nice spot for a cup of tea and a coffee, two friends and I stopped at Dockside, attracted by the nice sunny sheltered space. Too late for brunch so can't review the food. Great space, tea and coffee acceptable. Staff a bit cool in attitude, so we were not sure if we were welcome or not. So... More

Had a work function upstairs for about 60 people. Outstanding service and organisation. Nice little space. Staff were very helpful. Value good. We only had nibbles and they were fine.

I visited Dockside for a friends birthday dinner and was shocked by the quality of the meal. It should have been great, the ingredients were of good quality, but execution was poor! I had Salmon for the main which was over cooked, and credit where credit is due the calamari was excellent! Next course was Coconut Pannacotta and meringues -... More

I'm very sorry to hear about your recent visit. The freshness of our wines available by the glass is monitored daily, but if the freshness is ever questioned it should be replaced by one from a fresh bottle immediately. The issues with your food should have been dealt with during check backs. I'm sorry we failed to deal with these... More

Beautifully warm restaurant flooded in winter's sun. That is where the positives stop. Service was poor and food was no better. My market fish had actually been frozen. Very very overpriced.

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with us. We pride ourselves on the standard of our service and quality of our food. I can assure you our market fish is never frozen. We only use fish suppliers who promote sustainable fishing and deliver daily. I would love to reply personally. You can contact me on manager@docksidenz.com? Adam Tolly,... More
