    Some of our family gathered for Easter at The Waters Edge. We were certainly not disappointed. Not only was the food great, the service very good, but as we were in an 'alcove' situation we were not aware of any nearby conversations, so the 'noise level' at a restaurant was the best we have experienced for a long time. Am attending a Social team meeting this morning at our Retirement Village and will have no hesitation in highly recommending The Waters Edge to one and all. Will ensure to pass that on to many other friends.

    Waters Edge has great food preparation the flavours and colours are superb. The waitress very friendly and helpful and gave us an extra sweet treat with a candle for our wedding Anniversary. There are also excellent views to Lake Burley griffin and the jazz music through the speakers is superb.

    We had a delicious, stunningly presented meal with great views as an added bonus at The Water's Edge recently. The service was efficient and polite with complimentary chef's samples. We would highly recommend for a special occasion.

    Increasingly one of our favourite restaurants in Canberra, both for location and quality of the food. Delightful spot for lunch or dinner (or both).

    First time going to this restaurant. Food was very nice, service was great and as the venue is right on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin it has a very nice aspect. Would recommend asking for a table near a window so you can make the most of the view.

    We celebrated my birthday at Waters Edge. It was delightful to watch the evening gently fall over the lake and still the view was lovely. The food was delicious with subtle flavours, perfectly cooked meats in delicious sauces and rose petals added to the colours and presentation. While the servings were small, the in-between courses of tasty surprises ensured that we had plenty to eat. I was accommodated without fuss as a dairy free person. A memorable evening, thank you

    Our first fine dining experience in Canberra, what a treat. The food was delicious and gorgeous looking, the staff were highly attentive and wow what a pretty view. We were particularly grateful to the staff for making our daughter feel welcome and comfortable (it was her first time at a fancy restaurant and she was a bit nervous).

    The food tasted as if it had been cooked. frozen, and then re heated when ordered - not what one would expect in a high class restaurant. The cost was excessive - nearly $90 each for two courses each three drinks.

    My partner and I found this restaurant online and decided to try it for our anniversary. It was fantastic for a romantic dinner! The atmosphere at night is lovely with a beautiful view over the lake. We had the 5 course degustation meal: every dish was delicious and had a unique set of flavours. The staff were very polite. Would highly recommend!

    We had a great experience. We had our young baby with us and felt valued by the staff even though this was a fancy restaurant. The food was delicious - definitely worth getting entrée, main and dessert. Would highly recommend to others for a romantic meal or a group get together.
