Great ambience, exceptional serivce, friendly staff. Food is amazing. Restaurant layout is such that you can see the chef preparing your meal in the centre of the restaurant. This was wonderful to watch, sometimes forgetting to actually eat your food.....

The restaurant is within the hotel property. The set up is sophisticated and modern. Food is really fantastic. I tried a few items and I really enjoyed them. However the service here is extremely slow. Best not to come if you are in a hurry.

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...More
