    We love the changing face of LBG over the seasons, and the Waters Edge provides a cosy eating experience in winter. We’ve missed it during COVID and looked forward to its reopening. We had a lovely night!

    Food was good and tasty. The 4-course set menu deal we thought we were getting through Fork had changed to their 3 or 5 course option at the restaurant. Not a big deal but not what we were expecting. The atmosphere of the restaurant could be greatly improved with brighter decor. The cutlery was modern looking but at the dessert spoon was very impractical and left us chasing the food around the bowl. Little things that detracted from a pleasant evening.

    I wanted to have a celebratory dinner with my daughter after she obtained her CA certification and with the social distancing rules in place this restaurant met these conditions without having to make any major adjustments I believe. We all had the 4 course dinner and everyone at our table of 3 was very happy with their choices. The serving staff were very attentative and took the time to explain about each dish ordered. Overall, a very enjoyable night out and we will be back

    Fantastic food and service that was reasonably priced for a one hat venue. We had a table with views to the lake which made the experience even better.

    Lovely views tho the decor was a bit dated. Wait staff were excellent. Food was terrific bar the prawn mousse - not very nice at all. Dinnerware and cutlery were amazing.

    Quite small dishes but with the 4 courses there was enough to eat. Not sure I am a big fan of the 4 small dishes plus desert approach. Food was good but not great. Deserts were just average. Very slow to take our orders, very annoying to see orders being take from tables that arrived after you. But after that the service improved. Open on Sunday night which is good.

    We love this place. Their Sunday lunch three course set menu (four choices for each course) is great value - the food is always excellent quality, and the attention to deal with presentation is supurb. The location makes for excellent people (and pooch) watching over lunch! They change their menu seasonally, so we always make sure we go at least every four months so we don't miss a menu. The wine list is quite good, and very reasonably priced. My only criticism is the $6 per bottle charge for the on-tap sparkling water. That style of water service should lend itself to a much better value offering (such as Rizla, which has the same system and charges $2 per head for endless sparkling water). Overall, this is a Sunday lunch favourite for us; consistently high quality.

    The atmosphere was great for an anniversary dinner: quiet, formal and romantic. The view was also lovely. Service was delightful. The food was great. We ordered the four courses, and by the end had eaten enough to be full. The five spice kangaroo was especially delicious.

    Great food and a wonderful view. The stylish ambience is well suited to location and was matched with impeccable service. The fixed price lunch menu was good value for money with 4 options for each of the three courses. We will be going back.

    Waters Edge Canberra went above our expectations. Overlooking Lake Burley Griffin we were impressed by the spectacular water view, the cuisine was really really delicious and beautifully presented. The customer service was awesome, the staff were very welcoming and attentive. We will recommend Waters Edge to our friends in Sydney who visit Canberra. Will definitely book Waters Edge on our next visit. Wishing you all the same exemplary dining experience we enjoyed.

    while my meals was fine, my husband commented that two of his four courses were a little bland. we were just generally a little disappointed & also felt that given the location & expectations the decor could do with a bit of an upgrade.

    Excellent location with views of the War Memorial and Lake Burley Griffin. Staff are attentive and the food is outstanding. You can enjoy a three course lunch for $66 which is great value. I have dined here several times and have always been extremely satisfied with the restaurant.

    This is the second time I have dined there and I have been impressed with the food (including small touches like complimentary tasters) and service on both occasions.

    We enjoyed the interesting menu choice. Plate presentation was unique and the extra palette cleansers were thoughtful and tasty. The location with window seating is perfect for watching the view outside.

    I had heard about this restaurant and wanted to see for ourselves. A birthday celebration was the opportunity. The waiter was delightfully helpful. He knew his food and wine advising and serving with skill and politeness. The four course lunch was so good. Each course, extra suprises and a birthday plate - all to ensure we will revisit and recommend.

    The set menu was excellent: imaginative and well presented. A small range of good wines was well matched to the food. Service was competent and unobtrusive.
