    The food was to die for! Snapper & Leek pie was delicious and large serving. The Red Emperor Red Curry was spectacular, a vision to look at and so yummy. The waiter loved his job and it really showed with his passion of hot role.

    The service was fantastic, David was very accommodating and helped us get out in time for a show. My partner commented afterwards on how great the food was and what a fantastic time she had. Great place for a date before a show.

    We went twice it was that good and the second time like the first did not disappoint . The food and the service was exceptional and the ambience is lovely. we ate outside the first time and inside the second and both were great. Lovely setting too so try it out but remember to book as it is very popular.

    Sliced bread was cold, should have been warmed. Entrees and mains quite nice. Clams with barramundi dish were tough. Dessert platter disappointing. Smearing chocolate sauce on a wooden tray is a no no. The wood absorbs the moisture from sauce! . Sticky date pudding lacked flavour. Texture of fondant was too dense. Service was attentive and pleasant.

    We celebrated our daughter’s 21st birthday last night & loved every minute of our experience at Waterfront Southgate. Our waitress Anna was so friendly, welcoming & attentive the whole night. All our meals were superb from the presentation, quality & divine flavours. To finish our evening we enjoyed a couple of the special desserts & our daughter’s was brought to her with a lovely message & candle which she loved! 10/10 for everything & a big thank you for the best evening out.
