Went here for a meal on Saturday, it wasn't first choice but it was raining quite heavily so we almost fell into here. I have no complaints about the food, just be aware if they ask if you want water make sure you state tap water, we forgot and were charged $10 for a bottle of water. The food was beautiful and service was great no complaints but don't expect much change out of $150 for two.

a bit pricy but the risotto was yummilious.
I would have licked the bottom of the plate for the last bit if I were alone!
Great service and good wine selection.
Location - at Southbank and a short walk from the Crown Promenade where I stayed.

We visited this evening and enjoyed the pork belly and a seafood chowder for entrees, followed by a lobster risotto and fillet steak. One of the most enjoyable meals of the trip, and a highly recommended restaurant. Despite the fact that the place was at capacity, the service was excellent.

Saturday night about 8.30 we thought we woudl have no chance of getting a table at any restaurant along the South Bank strip. All looked very busy.
We took the chance with Waterfront as my son wanted a steak. The welcome was pleasent, the wait at the bar short and we got a table outside within 5 minutes. The service was promt for the drinks order and the food soon after.
Whilst we had to ask for our wine to be poured (It was not left on our table) it was very nice. The sparkling water was not seen again after a couple of pours.
Overall very good restaurant, service and quality.

We were seated immediately by the manager and sat outside. This restaurant is right on southbank so you had a fantastic view across the river. I noticed they had a paella for two on the menu which was what made us decide to try the restaurant. We also ordered the chowder and the tempura battered bug to start. The paella came out and it was huge, enough to feed four actually, so if you are smart you`d eat all the seafood first as you cannot take home the leftovers as they quoted some health food regulations. All the food was excellent.
