Had lunch at the Waterfront and the food was good. A friend and I had the meat sharing platter. It was really good, but there was enough for four people. It was such a shame to leave some of it. Would certainly recommend it.

Fairly lively place with live music, a great selection of beers/wines. Food is always tasty and often gets very busy. Good service and always kept clean and tidy!
