Water Street Kitchen is a beautiful little place that renders that of somewhere in a big city, of an upmarket cafe/restaurant. I have visited a few times now for different occasions and no time has Water Street disappointed. The food is impeccable. I have enjoyed all I have devoured. The drinks are something to admire as well, non alcoholic being my choice, the mocktails are not only wonderful in taste but something of a spectacle upon arrival to the table too. The bamboo straws are adorable... The ambiance and backdrop of Water Street brings a lovely vibe and feeling. Somewhat of a Queenslander style cottage. Having sat both inside and outside, I’ve enjoyed the setting of both. The service of the waiting staff is also that of a high standard, nothing is too hard or an issue. You are fully taken care of. With all this being said, the pricing is a little more up there then a majority of people would be used too, but for what you experience, it’s worth it. I thoroughly recommend Water Street Kitchen. Especially for a special occasion...

Lovely food, but sometimes a little too fancy (charcoal spaghetti is not particularly nice, but I guess it looks better than regular spaghetti). The drinks are fantastic . The ambience is wonderful. Staff are perfection

By far the best restaurant in Bundaberg. If you think it's expensive, then a garlic bread, and a steak and dianne sauce will cost at least $35 at most hotels and pubs. So $55 for two great and original courses plus excellent service is far from excessive....and the service and atmosphere are of the highest quality. Highly recommended.

Very disappointing evening, high expectations but despite of great service, food quality was a complete letdown, obviously pre-cooked and reheated, the crab lasagne had an ammonia whiff, the chicken Maryland was rubbery and the sauce had a bitterness to it, the entrees were even worse, a spoon of crab meat with some chewy coconut flakes on a leaf of sort, what a joke, and the prawn szechuan were tiny, overcooked and sticking to their shell, the angel hair was poorly reheated and sponging off a sauce similar to that of the crab lasagne before it went off. Had a tasting iff the wine but this was subtracted to the glass that was poured thereafter, glad we didn’t go for the 3 course meal but feel sorry about the $160 for the experience. If you want to charge that kind of money, make sure one can’t do better at home as any ready meal from the supermarket would fare better in a blind test.
