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.

Ordinary average food, good management, gr8 view, very reasonable markup wine.
Dear Sophia, Thank you for your feedback, much appreciated. We like to share these with our team so that we can re-evaluate how we deliver our service and quality of food and beverage. I note that you mention food was average, could you elaborate on what items you had so I can address this with the kitchen. I do hope that we see you return in the near future where we may be able to demonstrate a better overall experience. Sincerely yours, Peter

Great views and nice waitress

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
