“very average menue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2012

wine good but very expensive - obscure beer brands - ordered ceaser salad with roasted chicken - it was served without the chicken - waiter took it back & by the time it was reserved my wife had nearly finished her dish (light meal)
The location was great with the weather a "corka" with a breeze blowing off the water -we could not asked for a better location to have lunch overall the lunch was enjoyable - however if we return to Manly again we would choose another restaurant probably because of the unknown beer brands

“Location, location, location... But unfortunately the food didn't deliver.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2011

I visited Whitewater a while ago and it was spectacular. This weeks visit was disappointing. Service was good, and the atmosphere was still a calm yet chic place to visit but the food just didn't hold up. The light lunch menu is well priced for Manly however the Fish of the Day Tartar lacked any real zing and needed basic seasoning while the Wagu Beef Burger lacked flavor whilst being well over cooked. Sometimes it's better to live on memories.

“good but ..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

Whitewater is located across the road from South Steyne Beach. The white theme is cleverly displayed through the decore of the restaurant which makes the atmosphere very chic & modern.

For entrée I ordered Tempura Soft Shell Crab: with shaved coconut, red pepper and coriander & for the main I had the fab platter of Sashimi which was delicious & extremely generous.

Overall " We found the food to be terrific but very pricey and the staff to be too slow.
