We were first-time diners at H2O with rather high expectations. It was early and only a few others in the restaurant so far.
We arrived promptly on time and were shown to our table by a very pleasant guy, who after seating us said he would just grab us some iced table water and be back. That was the last we saw of him sadly. After 10 or so minutes of looking at the beverage menu, I left the table and went up to the bar. I asked if I could order drinks there and they advised that it was table service but as I explained, no one had been near us. No apologies but they took my order there and then and delivered it straight to our table a few minutes later.
Eventually, we had to hail down someone to take a meal order as once again we were ignored. All good.
The food arrived in good time, was nicely presented and my wife loved it. I'm just a plain food eater so I didn't really enjoy it but that's me, not the restaurant!
We will go back again, but I will try to see if I can get something a little less spicy or garlicky. (once again my problem not the restaurant!) Then I will be able to ascertain whether this is a quality restaurant or just a cafe masquerading as one. (restaurants can make changes to a menu whereas cafes are unable mostly!)
Also, Restaurants use trained, organised staff with a good knowledge of the menu and wines whereas cafes use casuals and backpackers.
As I said previously we will go back just to find out if they were just having a bad staffing night. The location ect is fabulous so has great potential.
Overall it was fair. Staff need to communicate with one another much better. Had one waiter ask if we were ready to order then 30 seconds later another asked the same question. It felt rushedThis happened on more then one occasion. Food was fair but we didn't leave there feeling like we wanted to come back anytime soon. Priced on the high end so expected more.Location is brilliant. But overall 3 stars.
A lovely spot for dinner. Food was reasonable but not outstanding. Service was slow.
Venue and location is beautiful just a shame that the food doesn’t live up to expectations, we had on of the specials a seafood pasta which was ok but very bland and nothing special about it at all and chicken supreme again not very good very dry stuffed with whole garlic cloves and not much else. Ordered 3 sides 1 of which came out just as we were finishing our meals. Espresso martinis were great and so was the location and views but the rest of the experience left a-lot to be desired.
Lovely ambience. Food was ok but way over priced for what it was. My partner's steak was over cooked.
Service was ok at best. I judge more harshly as I've spent 15 years working in the industry so I get that. However, for a restaurant that is trying to be on the higher level of service unfortunately the staff & food didn't represent that.
An Amazing place for a drink, look at the water & have some nibbles.
We love going to H20. Great food, great staff. Always friendly
A disappointing evening dinner for two, with negligent wait staff and cold food which needed to be returned.
Very nice atmosphere and service!
Great views and food. Service was good a friendly
Beautiful atmosphere and great staff. Couldn't fault it.
The view is delightful and the drinks are refreshing
Was a very long wait time for meals, not many kids options. Weren't up kept with drinks while waiting and the chicken was extremely dry and the flavour combinations did not make sense. Very underwealming unfortunately.
Food was bland. Kids menu very lacking. Service was lacking, didn’t come back and ask if we wanted more drinks
First time here at this place , was excited to try here , unfortunately it didn’t live up to much at all , service average to say the least, meal very expensive for what their were , $49 for paella with very little seafood and terrible presentation , actually closer to a risotto , taste was ok overall disappointing , a shame as it is a lovely spot
The service was very good. We were looked after very well and there was a lovely ambience on the deck overlooking the river.
The paella was fantastic. I recommend it. The wild possum provided good entertainment.
Great and attentive service, good food and a very nice venue especially the deck overlooking the Burnett river. Drinks at reasonable prices and plenty of food and beverage choice.
Everything was wonderful from the food to the service.
Hi Rachel, Thank you for joining us during the Easter long weekend. We appreciate you taking the time to review your experience at H2O and hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards, The H2O Team
Really nice place and staff, food was very good, will definitely return. The
Great steak and dessert side was average. Service gets slow when busy. But overall would definitely return.
Lovely spot. The staff were very accommodating to my requests. Will certainly go back.
Very disappointing visit. Waited an hour and a half for mains while everyone else who arrived and ordered after us received their meals, this included larger tables. I understand it was a busy night but that was a bit ridiculous. We didn’t end up getting our meals, we canceled them and left as no one could tell us how long the wait was going to be and we were told we weren’t the only ones waiting. Only the second time we’ve been, the first time was fantastic but it’s safe to say we won’t be back due to not wanting another experience like this one. I was given a glass with a crack through it and we also almost ended up with someone else’s meals. Because it was so late when we left no other kitchens in Bundaberg where still cooking so we ended up with hungry jacks... fantastic valentines dinner.
Enjoyed our experience overall and we will go back, however one of our meals vegetables was served cold but the fish was amazing. Our other meal was perfect.
We were not offered sweets and the drinks service was kind of average.
We did learn later they were one staff member short.
Great everything, except the fish was a little under done. They offered to take it back, but it was a small amount and not worth it.
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience at H2O, Sarah. We appreciate the feedback and are glad you enjoyed everything. Sorry to hear that your fish was not cooked to perfection on this occasion. Your feedback has been passed on to the kitchen team and we hope that you will be back soon to try the newest additions to our menu. Best regards, H2O team
Good view overlooking the Burnett River, a cool breeze coming off the water and excellent service. The food is of a high standard and presented well. If you want a $15 roast of the day, this is not the place to go but for the quality of the food, service and setting it is definitely valve money.
Dear Ron, Thank you for taking the time to provide fabulous feedback on your recent dining experience with us. We are happy that you enjoyed the food, service and ambiance of H2O and hope to welcome you back very soon. Kind regards, H2O team
Beautiful views, atmosphere food and staff. One of if not the best place in Bundaberg.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Branden. Your fantastic feedback will be passed onto the team and we look forward to welcoming you back to H2O soon. Kind regards, Shelley - Restaurant Manager
Great ambiance and attentive service. The food was creative and well balanced. Good but limited wine list, I loved the lemon myrtle margarita
Food was delicious and beautiful setting. Unfortunate about service. Had to ask 4 times for a drink menu and she also tried to take away plates whilst people were still eating
Excellent calm and balmy riverside view. Pleasant and personal style. Good food with friendliness
Had dinner at H2O the other night. Great ambience and a beautiful water view. Staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. I had the mushroom dumplings with ginger and chilli broth which was great.
My eye fillet steak was even better - done perfectly for medium rare and the plate was even warmed. A truly memorable dinner and good value for money.
It was such a great experience,had some requests that were really taken care of !! Tried a complete new dish (Jamaican Egg plant) and it was above and beyond expectations!!! Even the starters (Arancini, Pita with Hummus) were amazing.
Can recommend this place on any day!!!
Beautiful meals, great service. Reasonably priced. Exceptional views over looking the water. Great atmosphere. Definitely recommend.
Celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary
Menu was very limited and unimpressive. Location, view, cleanliness and music were great.
Such a disappointment. Given that there was no wait staff that came in to serve us, instead of the manager giving us a coupon and asking us to come back later, he decided to wait on our table himself. For the first hour we were the only table there and it took us 45 minutes to get our lunch. And it was cold when we got it. After having our bread and drinks, he took the cutlery and did not replace it so my husband was having to eat his salad with his fingers.
On a $90 meal he comped us $15 for a beer and a drink. If he had comped the whole meal we would consider possibly going back. But given the experience… Never again!
As a group of 9, we all enjoyed it and will definitely be back!
Very disappointed- had booked online with table over looking River with confirmation email sent- arrived and told no booking but we will fit you in !!!! Staff poor knowledge of menu and menu not the same as advertised on net. Drinks not available as per menu and food not available as per menu however not informed of this at ordering time.
Apart from H2O having no record of our booking we had a lovely evening. The food and service were very good. As we dined at night there was very little to see over the river. For that reason, were we to return to Bundaberg we would certainly come back to H2O and make a lunch reservation.
Very nice view over the river, lucky enough to score a calm night so everything was open creating a relaxing open atmosphere
Always great service and very nice food. Always happy to go that extra mile and cater to my wife’s medical requirements.
