It started out quite promising, but ended up being very disappointing. Lovely setting for the restaurant and the open kitchen in the centre and seafood display was great. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. I ordered a special seafood starter. It looked really impressive when it arrived. However the mussels were dried out and tough. I ended up leaving two as I couldn't stomach them. My husband ordered fillet steak for his main course. He had to send it back twice. Firstly it was overdone and dried out. They then cooked another one that was cold in the middle, yet still dried out?? My husband had to stand at the counter and watch the chef cook it for the third time before he got a reasonable (not great steak). The chef admitted that the steaks are vacuum packed so lose a lot of their juice. We couldn't believe it in a five star restaurant. Also, even by restaurant standards the wine was seriously overpriced. We ate at Cucina another night and the food there was much better. We were really disappointed as it was supposed to be a special night.

One of the restaurants at the prestigious Hyatt Regency Oubaai. Like the rest of the hotel, its very well designed and has a great ambience, has outside seating and on the inside, there's an open kitchen at the center with a sea food display. Food took quite a while to be ready because it was full, seemingly most guests prefer it to the Cucina at the same hotel. Food was okay, small portions and quite costly.

The Waterside Grill located within the Oubaai/Hyatt Regency Resort is a very trendy restaurant that will definitely tickle anyone's taste buds, whether your enjoy seafood or meat, this is certainly a restaurant with very modern decor, a great atmosphere and plenty of good food.

For the seafood lovers, you personally pick your own fish, giant prawns or lobster off a bed off ice and with the grand grill area where food is openly prepared, you are welcome to watch the brilliant chefs preparing your meal if you are not preoccupied with good company.

And the food really is good!

Perhaps worth mentioning is the fact that the food (specifically your delish-fish) is quite pricey, as it is priced per gram, but again, the bigger you buy the more you get. What I guess also pushes up the bill a little bit, is that you have to order your side dishes individually (like many restaurants in the US), but for someone like me who is very picky about side dishes, it suited me very well and I didn't mind paying that little bit extra.

All in all, a great restaurant I will definitely recommend!

A great setting alongside the Hyatt Regency with great views and an attractive water feature. There is a classy menu. as it is a 5* restaurant with concomitant pricing.
