Goos Service,nice atmosphere,nice location.Good Steaks , but spoilt by the chef putting on a sauce that makes the meat taste sweet.The lemon and pepper squid starter was fantastic.

Had two very lack lustre salads here on Saturday. The lamb in the lamb salad was very dry and overcooked, chucked on top of some rocket with not much else for flavour. The Caesar salad had two cores still attached to the cos lettuce when I asked for a poached egg on top I was informed that no chef there could poach an egg!!! I mean really how hard is it to poach an egg?

Had planned a lovely lunch with a girlfriend and was really disappointed. We ordered the ceasar salad and lamb salad. We requested a poached egg to go with the ceasar salad but was told the chef couldn't do it! How hard is it to cook an egg! The lettuce in the salad wasn't separated and was in clumps. The lamb was overlooked in the other salad and no dressing either. No love in either meal. Location nice but wouldn't go back there again.

Well fellow travellers, if you happen to be in Cairns I would certainly head over to the waterfront, stroll along the boardwalk looking at the boats and then eat at the Waterbar. We sat outside, people watching.The service was quick and polite. Eating in Australia is not cheap but here it is in line with everywhere else which surprised me due to location and service and food. The food was delicious. 4 of us ate. We chose ribs (huge and succulent) steak (very tender) and fish (cooked to perfection). So all items on the menu we tried were delicious. The food was hot and moreish. For four of us it cost just over $150. Drink were more of course. We loved it and will go back.

Our first try on a Saturday night met with a long wait so we went elsewhere and make a reservation for the next night. We were not disappointed. We were ready for a steak and after sharing a great ceasar salad our perfectly cooked steaks arrived. We ordered the prerequisit baked potato with butter and sour cream....only thing missing was mushrooms, which they do not serve?? peeve... paper napkins, a high end restaurant should provide cloth napkins.
