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!

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.
