Description: The Watergate Restaurant & Lounge Bar is located in the heart of Port Douglas, at the corner of Grant and Macrossan Street behind the Rotary Park. Enter down the flame lit path from Macrossan Street.The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor dining.Watergate's cuisine is Modern Australian. Executive Chef Lee Neate sources fresh, seasonal produce to prepare innovative dishes, that reflect contemporary trends in Australian cooking.Opening hours : the restaurant is open for lunch from midday, and dinner is served from 5:30pm, seven days a week. We also have a light lounge menu available available through the day until late.Watergate also has a well appointed bar, ideal for a cocktail as the sunsets, or maybe a light meal from the lounge menu with a bottle of wine. It is also available for a pre-dinner drink, or desserts and coffee at the end of the night.

It started with the fully escorted walk down the path, time to have pre dinner drinks before being escorted to our table. Offered mozzie repellant ! (No mozzies tonight) offered drinks with prompt service and the waiter talked us through the menu and specials. Very accommodating for a gluten free diet.

From the time we stepped into the restarant we knew it was going to be a great experience. The service food we loveld and priceses were not over the top. A must for a lovely evening.

Stumbled upon Watergate one night when my colleague & I had a free night to wander Port and find dinner. We were recommended Salsa however it was closed... of which I'm totally grateful for as otherwise we wouldn't have found this beauty of a restaurant! The ambience is fantastic - dark, sultry, trendy. It's buzzing with chatter - obviously a popular spot. The food is DELICIOUS and the red wine (Yarra Valley) just perfect. The service was outstanding, absolutely recommend this restaurant for dinner.

We dined here celebrating a birthday. The cocktails were a superb start to the evening! The bar staff knew what they were doing and spoke with knowledge and passion.
Renal (sp?) was stand out from the beginning. His service was attentive and of a high concern for the patrons, he attended to our every request and truly went above and beyond the call of service to the point that he even remembered a wedding reception I had attended at the end of last year!!!! Amazing team and impeccable service, definitely made the night enjoyable and one to remember. Thank-you again.
