Very busy restaurant on the waterfront. Enjoyable meal, service well done. Lighting very dark and music very loud, but we are in the older demographic. All in all, and good experience.

I last ate here 2 years ago and claimed back then it was the best steak I’ve ever had. This time around lived up to my expectations. Nothing about this restaurant disappoints!

Famous for their ribs, but my personal favorite is the boerwoers. Been here a number of times, it's fairly expensive but the food has always been good. Service is average. Nicely located on the wharf.

The Waterbar does a wide range of meals, however, I can't go past the steaks which are always perfectly cooked, juicey and delicious. The ribs are also highly recommended by all our friends. The best thing about the Waterbar is that you can recommend it...More
