It could have almost been a comedy. Neither our table or the table next to us could attract the attention of any staff. Finally ordered 3 drinks - one completely wrong. Overpriced cake slice. Chicken panini which was of extremely poor quality and chips which were not fresh cooked. A very depressing and unpleasant afternoon experience.

The service may not be the top but it's not bad either. I love the food, the helpfulness of wait staff and the ambiance

I had calamari as a main meal size but found it very tough and not very well presented on the plate. When I mentioned I found it tough the waiter said he would tell the chef but I was offered no replacement or discount. The waiter passed my meal to me in front of another diner instead of bringing it around to my side. Also I think $30 for an very ordinary fish and chip meal is somewhat expensive.

Had a very good experience at the Waterfront Cafe this weekend. We took a friend from Germany there for a farewell dinner, after going for a jetboat ride on the harbour. We were 9 nine adults, 3 children and 2 infants and they catered for our needs very well. They made us all feel welcome and no request was too much for the friendly staff. Food was good. It isn't a 5 star restaurant but is exactly as it claims - a bar and cafe serving really tasty food that's good value for money, with a great view of the water. A few of us had really nice steaks, which were all cooked just how we asked.

Thank you to all at The Waterfront, we will be back in the near future
