Amazing choice on food on a set menu for everyone even the vegetarians. I had the pork ribs and my gosh it was massive, tasty and fall of the bone meat. The staff were very helpful and service had great timing. Will go again :)

Welcome to Wildwater Grill, an award-winning restaurant overlooking the ocean at Dee Why Beach. We’re passionate about creating flavoursome meals with the freshest ingredients, and believe food tastes best with a side of sea breeze. Enjoy sizzling Mozambique style prawns or prime-cut tenderloin with field mushrooms and feta as you relax in our blissful, alfresco setting. Watch the waves roll in with one of our signature cocktails in hand, or spend a lively evening tucking into share platters with friends. Whatever your flavour, there’s something for you, thanks to the dedication of our talented Head Chef, Ephraim. We look forward to having you at Wildwater.
