Waterside Grill & Bar is one of three restaurants at the Oubaai Hotel. The centrepiece of the restaurant is the "show kitchen" as all the food is prepared there. The fillet was cooked to perfection, the wine list is also good. A nice evening out and one of the best meals I had during our stay in George / Herold's... More

We had to wait more than 20min before someone arrived with a Food menu, then we were just Handed the menu without being asked what we would like to drink. I think our drinks arrived 35 mins after we arrived. My husband... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel and had a dinner at the restaurant. We ordered fish which came with delicious, fresh crispy fries and tasty vegetables. Enjoyed the evening very much.

We decided to celebrate my fiancé's birthday at the restaurant. The food was amazing however the service we received was appalling. Nick who assisted us at the bar with champagne was fantastic however our waitress was not very good at her job & seemed to have a bit of an attitude problem too. For the price of drinks & alcohol...

I would have given this restaurant a very high rating for the quality of the food but the service which simply pathetic - really do something to rectify it's not good enough!

We ate here after arriving to the resort. Afterward we realized it was a mistake. The staff seemed very confuced and one could see that many guests also feelt things were not well organized. We ordered rumpsteakes with baked potato. Once the steakes arrived the baked potatoes were no where to be seen. Half the steakes were eaten when boiled... More

I arrived on Friday at Oubaai Resort and was asked if I would like to have dinner at the restaurant. Thinking that the Resort is rated highly I might as well try the restaurant, what a mistake this would be. The food was terrible, I ordered organic chicken and my wife the Kingklip. My chicken to say the least had... More

My husband and I had supper at the Waterside Grill and Bar last night. Hubby had a good rump steak with hand cut chips and sadly I had a disappointing pasta because the description read Aubergine and Zucchini (Brinjal and Baby Marrow - for South Africans) but the pasta was brinjal and red and yellow peppers (capsicums). I love baby... More
