I ate at Karma Waters a couple of nights ago and it was fantastic. Great food, great service and great pricing. I would definitely recommend it to everyone who asks. The only thing that let it down in my eyes is the set up which lacked a bit of privacy for my liking, however they seem to do the best with the area they have at their disposal.

Hello
Thank you for using Trip Advisor to review us, your time is well appreciated as is your support. We are pleased to hear your visit to Karma was well enjoyed.

It is difficult to offer a more private setting at Karma waters, as 90% of our table are Alfresco with Ocean Views. We do not have a large indoor area so unfortunately, we make use of the space the best way we can. We hope that our diners enjoy the atmosphere which includes background music and candles and of course, the beautiful views!

Thank you for acknowledging our efforts to do everything we can to ensure our customers have an enjoyable experience.
Regards
Kellie & Tex

Reserved by email for our wedding anniversary dinner and were seated by lovely blonde lady staff and served by a friendly gentleman. None of them had name tags, so I can't tell you their names to compliment them and the great service we got all night. They all wished us a Happy Anniversary during the evening which was a nice personal touch. We started with a Tasting plate, which was amazing, in fact I would say try the tasting plate before you order so you can decide what is best. We loved the lamb shoulder, melt in your mouth amazing. For main I had the "signature dish" dripping in periperi sauce, perfectly cooked to my request of medium rare, hubby had the special that night which was a prime rib steak, and it was no trouble to change the french fries to mashed potatoes for him. It was fantastic and worth the $110 for the meals, we don't go out often, and love that we chose this place for perfect food, great service, and something unique for our anniversary weekend. We are still talking about the Australian Portuguese meal we will never forget. Thank you!

Dining and Coffeeing at Karma Waters Restaurant is always an enjoyable experience both for my Wife and I and our many friends . We dine there at least once weekly and often drop in for a fine cup of coffee.Dining at Karma Waters is special as there is an imaginative and interesting menu with a little Portugese influence.Portions are generous and not overly expensive.The coffee is always of a high standard and each and every member of staff including management are very helpful and friendly. The liquor range is also of a good standard with quality wines and a good selection of imported and local beers to enjoy.
If you are considering a good dining experience then my recommendation is to book early as Karma Waters Restaurant is very popular.

I've been dining at Karma Waters for years now and have never had a bad meal there.
Excellent service, very affordable dining and an alfresco setting on the beautiful Mooloolaba foreshore.

I believe their excellent service and food quality is due mainly to the fact that they are located on 'restaurant row' and as there are a few restaurants to choose from, customer satisfaction is paramount,
