I do not like giving negative reviews, however The Waterside Hotel did not live up to it's advertised impression. We dined as a group of 4 pre a Comedy Festival show at the venue, so thought it would be convenient. On reflection, I should have complained about the quality of the food on the night. Since I was prompted to give this review, I am being very honest with it's content. I understand that this is a pub, so don't expect the ambience of a restaurant.
It was very noisy. We sat in an area described as The Bistro. The TV was loud and children were running around jumping on chairs and yelling loudly. We could not have a conversation so we moved to a different area near the main bar where it was quieter.
I ordered fish & chips. The fish itself was quite nice, chips average. A side salad was an extra $7 & consisted of iceberg lettuce, onion and radish, drowned in dressing. A $7 serve of garlic bread came out. At first I thought it looked like a baked potato, it was about that size. It was burnt with minimal butter & garlic! The Charcuterie at $18 was very average. Over $150 for 4 people was expensive for the food quality. On a positive note, the staff were friendly.
Great location with views across towards the Yarra. The dining area and bar up on the roof was fantastic and is the spot to eat and drink. Highly recommended and the staff were exceptionally friendly. Hadn't been before, but would definitely visit again. 👍👍
Saw this Hotel on Postcards. Looked good but I was very disappointed. Food warm not hot, staff didn't know about deals that were on their website and Facebook page.
Wouldn't go back.
Awful food! Not recomended at all. Fish and chips awful, burguer too.
We had the best Friday lunch experience at the Waterside - top notch service, really friendly staff who were really accommodating. Food was amazing - great pub grub and good selection of drinks for a lovely outdoor dining experience. Would recommend the Waterside to anyone for a casual feed/drinks!
Great atmosphere, food was not great but free drinks on entry! and overall was good
Food and dining experience were above average. The vip experience for New Year’s Eve was a complete waste of money. Still waiting for the glass of moet we were promised. Would not recommend for next year!
They were slammed NYE but managed it well. We chose not to go up to the roof as per our booking as the demographic was not us! Over all great refit, recommend giving it a go, just hope they can increase their bar service - the one, but very important point to survive in the very competitive Melboure market.
Meal was nice, but staff need to explain seating options better when booking. Upstairs is walk up bar service only.
Nice hotel, downstairs dining room comfortable. Waitress was busy, we waited a while to order but very friendly once with us. Chicken parmigiana very average, wouldn't order it here agin. Salad was just rocket. Served with curly fries, not great. Sweet potato dumplings had no flavour.
Food was sensational. Chicken parma with the drumstick attached was amazing. The burger was cooked to perfection.
A relaxed atmosphere with good food and plenty of drinks to chose from
Good experience overall.
Was looking for a place to have dinner before the soccer and it was just perfect for what we were looking for.
great food, great staff.
