    A wonderful lunch at Water St, dining with a friend celebrating my Birthday. The dining experience at Water St is always top class. Started with delicious cocktails. My main meal was a divine risotto & an amazing Chocolate dessert. My dessert was served with a Birthday sparkler ⭐️ Perfect in every way, attentive knowledgeable wait staff.

    Overall our experience was awesome as usual. The service was excellent, the ambiance is always great. I was a little disappointed in my dessert. The hazelnut mousse. One huge plate with a tiny spoon of mouse on mazcerpon. Nothing else. Plate looked bear but the two mouthfuls were delicious as always

    Food was amazing. We were seated at the table right beside the entry and in front of the front counter which was less than ideal in that it was intrusive, noisy and crowded.

    Prawn entree, tough prawns, too much honey but the only dish we had that had any real taste. Bolognaise pasta entree, dry browned mince, no sauce. 1/2 glass bubbly for $15!!!!! Beetroot rocket salad, tough beetroot, dressing lumped underneath the salad Chorizo potato side, how many days had these potatoes been cooked or reheated. So dried out. Pasta and peas main course, laying in pure butter sauce that was flavour less.

    Hey all, I first wanted to say that both my wife and I have a really pleasant time and would return any time. The food was really rich and had a lot going on in each dish. While it tasted great I feel you could do less and achieve a better result. Thanks

    Water Street Kitchen is superb on all levels including atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food. The wait staff are very attentive yet not intrusive. We enjoyed the 3 course menu option with 2 sides - it was so difficult to decide what to order as everything sounded amazing. We would highly recommend and will be back soon.

    Bundaberg is lucky to have a restaurant of this calibre. Yes, prices reflect the upmarket cuisine on offer but the quality is unrivalled within a few hundred kilometres of the restaurant. I’ve paid a lot more and received a lot less on many occasions! We’re regular diners and will continue to be. Keep up the great work WSK!

    Hi, We have always loved the food at your restaurant, unfortunately on this occasion we were disappointed with the pork belly. I have had it previously and it was moist with a nice balance of salty and sweet. We found the new dish served with lentils, red cabbage and kale was very salty, it needed a sweet component like pear or apple to balance out the flavours it was also quite dry. Thankyou for allowing us to provide feedback. Regards Sue Lovejoy

    A perfect setting to enjoy perfect food. Easy to read menu, but hard to select because everything sounded divine. Our party of 4 enjoyed three delicious courses. Cannot believe it took us so long to go; now cannot wait to return.
