    I could not fault the service or the meal that is until the desert. I had the caramel pudding and it was ordinary which for Waters Edge is well below their exceptional standards. If the meal would have stopped at the fantastic citrus palette cleanser it would have been close to one of my best restaurant meals ever.

    A great way to spend a winters afternoon. The service was excellent, the food was amazing. The view was very good. the music was just right. The wine set it all off and the capaccino was just the way I like with exactly the right amount of froth. We will be back.

    A excellent venue. The menu is always delicious, with new and exciting flavours. The staff are so friendly and provide superb service. It's the go-to venue for my partner and I for our special celebrations and nights out.

    Excellent, fine dining with great service. I am lactose intolerant and they fully catered for my needs with no reduction in quality or taste. Beautiful view of the lake.

    Was looking for a last minute booking and never expected Waters Edge to be able to accommodate but they very graciously found us a table. Amazing top-notch formal service, delicious, food in every course. Great location and view. Didn’t think they could exceed my expectation but they did. Can’t wait to go back!

    It’s rare that we go out for a fine dining experience, but this was top notch. Wonderful staff, amazing food and stunning views. A great summer venue for sure, but equally stunning in winter. Great value for 3 courses of deliciousness. The only down side, they were out of Bentspoke IPA, I would love to see a beer menu that matched to the foods too, would complete a really wonderful menu.

    First timer. The ambient does not resemble fine dinning so short of expectation. The food was average and more tailored towards meat eater. There is an abundance of meat vs seafood. It could be that we were expecting something different. Quite salty on some of the dishes. Overall a below expectation on the food side where service and price were adequate.

    We wanted somewhere special to celebrate and loved the idea of sitting looking at the lake and War Memorial. The restaurant delivered on all fronts. We tried the 3 course set menu and were treated to a delicious, well portioned lunch. Highly recommend. We will go back.

    The dish's were well presented, were extremely well prepared and with a good combination of flavours. The steak, for me anyway, was cooked to perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was efficient without being intrusive. The setting of the restaurant is excellent - being able to look at the sunlight shinning on the waters of Lake Burley Griffin added very much to the dining experience. Overall, a great lunch and certainly very good value.

    We had the 4 Course Signature Meal with Glass of Wine winter special. Each dish was the right size, a nice variety of prawn, beef and pork, and each was packed full of flavour without being too rich. Make sure to arrive hungry as they also serve a welcome snack as well as a pre-dessert, which makes it 6 courses in total! We sat by he window so had a decent view of the lake and esplanade, it is nice during the day for the views. We will go again to try different dishes, but if we had to pick one from today the Vadouvan spice Tiger prawn, Salmon belly cutlet escalope & Lobster carrot jus was amazing. If that was available as a main I'd have that all day.

    The food was served between cold to warm and my medium steak was over cooked. I didn’t enjoy the dessert as it was a chocolate covered orange flavoured mouse served with strawberry ice cream which didn’t work. In general the flavours used for the entrees and main courses didn’t compliment each other. I don’t see myself returning in the future.

    Food and service were both very good and we enjoyed a beautifully presented meal. The only slight downside came at the end as we would have like coffee to finish off a great lunch, but the wait person did not offer coffee or tea when the table was cleared nor could we get their attention to ask for coffee later. We had a similar problem getting the bill. Just a little thing

    Thought the chef's greeting dish, entree, next course & cleanser were very good dishes. Thought the flavour of two main courses could have been differentiated better, were too similar. Dessert was good but ice cream was too icey.
