Open for Dinner Monday to Saturday from 6pm and daily for breakfast from 7am weekdays and 8am weekends and Public Holidays. Our '3 courses for $39' Menu represents great value for money. Start with Fresh Damper Bread with Trio of Dips, then be tempted by a great range of choices for Main Meal which includes something for everyone. Finish up being wowed by our fabulous desserts. The restaurant is fully licensed (no BYO) and for groups of 10 or more we are also pleased to be able to offer guests our House Beverages at just $5 each.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

My husband and I ordered the big breakfast and they really did mean BIG. Its the first time my husband couldn't finish his meal. It was beautiful and we will be back. Service was great and so was the coffee.

“Best big Breakfast in Port Macquarie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Best big Breakfast I've ever had. Best value for money in town too. Friendly service is always on the menu and they make a pretty mean cappacino too. You don't need lunch after these breakies .

“Good location & good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

The location of The Waterfront is first class, and the food quality is equally impressive. The wine list is also very good. We found the decor to be OK, but the service levels could be better (I think they might have been under resourced the night we were there; kept making excuses, but were friendly). But in any event, we enjoyed our evening.

“Good but not Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

The food was probably a seven or eight out of ten. We each had an entrée of deep fried camembert and variously a main of rib eye and Cajun salmon both were cooked as requested and to taste.

Unfortunately the same could not be said for the wine list which after two attempted orders we were told “was out of date” and “we are waiting on a truck form Melbourne”? Third choice was ok but not really what we wanted.

The service was very pleasant, obliging and enthusiastic but in common with many regional areas was untrained. The staff had no idea which side to serve from, which side to remove the plates from and no idea how to serve wine. But they were very chatty and cheerful which in my book makes up for a lot.
