After trying many of the other excellent restaurants in Mooloolaba on a recent holiday, we had a quick lunch at Karma Waters on our last day. It was the lunch special of grilled barramundi, salad and chips. Whilst a simple meal, it was beautifully prepared, nice sauce and generous proportions. Great value too. The staff were friendly and efficient. Would... More

Been here a couple of times and it doesn't disappoint. Great service and great food. Authentic Portuguese flavors and not expensive. Will be back. Again.

We had a large group for dinner and the staff made room for us all without even blinking an eye. It seemed that nothing was to much trouble. To top it all off everyone loved their meals, especially the Portuguese Seafood with Rice. Not one person had a complaint about their drinks or food which I find unusual. This along... More

Dined with my family (including my young children) on my last night in Australia and what a shame I couldn't go back and have another meal there. I had the chicken quasedas (sorry I can't spell it, is chicken pieces on a stick with veg). Was Devine. I also tasted the duck which was mouthwatering. Almost worth the flight to... More

The food here is average I thought. I had the chicken spicy hot pot and didn't enjoy it much, way to much chicken (for me) needed more in the actually pot than just chicken and potatoes. And wasn't very spicy. The service could be better too but that could come down to age and experience or expectation I don't know...

We enjoyed our meal here although both of our meals weren't hot enough, as if they'd been left standing a while. Service was good.

Have dined here 4 times in the last 3 months and have been very impressed on each occasion. The meals have been delicious...especially the duck confit and pork belly..with the desserts being divine. The friendly, professional staff assist in making this dining experience memorable.

We have never had a bad meal here and although service fluctuates with differing staff the food is good. Whilst it is true to say the food has Portuguese influences, don't be afraid to step up and be seated on the busy Mooloolaba strip because the menu will not scare those who do not accept stepping outside their comfort zone....

Just on the esplanade opposite the beach. Very casual dining but the food and service was great. They make a great cocktail called Splice. Went down very easily. Food service was great and the food itself yummy. Garlic prawns with a touch of chili went down very well. Reasonably priced and in a great location.
