I purchased the scoopon voucher for a full seafood platter for 2, including cocktails, wine, starter & dessert. At $99 it was great value for both of us. The food was really good! We sat at a table outside and admired the view of Darling Harbour. Service was a bit slow to start with, but improved greatly and the food and drinks were brought to us fairly quickly. Not sure I would pay full price for all the items, but overall a good experience!

Seafood platter was excellent & so was the staff, if you’re visiting Daring Harbour I totally recommend the Watershed hotel for lunch, spectacular views from the restaurant.

$19 lunch time menu with a beer/wine is pretty good value. Used my $20 dimmi rewards. Tried the Captain Jack's Seafood Basket. Served in a large steamer basket. Generous portion. Cooked well. Good sized side salad with plenty of tasty dressing. Friendly service. Nice outlook towards the city across Darling Harbour.

Credit is given to the gr8 Chef who has to work w budget to produce THE cheapest seafood platter in the Darling Harbour area. Loved the long prawn sticks, can’t find it anywhere else! Thanks for the lovely garlic butter sauce too.

I found the wait staff very friendly and helpful, but the bar staff the opposite. I thought the seafood platter was generous, but it had a black hair in it. I also had a seagull swoop down, stand in my food and eat it my food. A bit of a heads up from staff would've be useful.

Laid back Sunday afternoon with chilled music and atmosphere

The cleanliness was disgusting. Toilets looked like they haven’t been cleaned or repaired in a very long time. Seats were broken as well as toilet roll holders and no soap to wash your hands. Also there was toilet paper all over the floors. The rest of the place needed a proper clean, seemed more of a nightclub rather than a fine dining experience. The food was good as well as the drinks. And the best part of the night was when we were able to sit outside with our drink and look at the view. Overall though I wouldn’t want to come again.
