Canberra, Parkes Nice location by the lake. Been here previously when they serve edgy modern Aust. Had pork and salmon entree. Mains are lamb and gnocchi. Dessert of goat cheesecake and orange pudding. Maybe a better clarity in flavour might work wonders Have to say it was a nice sunset See less

Tried this restaurant having heard mixed reviews. The food was nice, however poor service and very rushed courses (5 course degustation with paired wines). We both ordered sparkling as a pre dinner drink and only arrived at table just prior to 1st course. Staff not knowledgeable on menu or chef. To top it all off when we went to pay the bill - found they charge 20% public holiday surcharge = twice the standard rate and this was definitely not justified considering service!! See less

Exceptional, a two hat experience. Presentation was an exquisite appetiser to a taste sensation. Fish, meats, vegetables, superb sauces and deserts. Service was fantastic too and then we had a beautiful view on a prime Autumn day. Hard to top this. Highly recommended. See less

Presentation was 5 star, the plated meals were very well decorated, may I say tastefully. The Price matched the quality of the meal, that makes it not expensive. Yes I recommend Waters Edge, and Yes I would go back. See less

Good location, probably better views in day time. Personal friendly service, five course degustation appropriately sized and delicious. Reasonable wine list. A bit pricey but overall an enjoyable night out. Would go back. See less

Lack of details and food was okay. I’ll explain. -Fine dining, 5 forks and 5 knifes but no table cloth? -Went for dinner at 7:30pm, so outside is dark and inside is bright light, the lights are so bad in this restaurant. There is no atmosphere or different mood lights that create a comfortable cozy place. -Got the menu, looks good food and we opted for the wine pairing. -Saw on the menu Salmon, Chicken, Kangaroo and Lamb, perfect! I inform the waiter that I am pescatarian so I can only eat the first course Salmon. I’ve asked for what food will the meat be substitute for… no answer. Normally in other restaurants the waiter will go and ask the chef and come back with options to check that I would be okay with the options. -Wine pairing… what a disaster.. on every dish that arrived the waiter bring 2 glass with the wine already pour into the glasses, saying this is the XXX (wine name). Wine was not pour from a bottle, no explanation in the wine that we were drinking and why this was a good option to accompany the dish… have you ever been to a wine pairing where they say this is a Chardonnay. Or this is a Shiraz, no further explanation. I can read myself on the menu that this a Shiraz, the waiter should be knowledgeable to explain the wine. This is what Wine Pairing in a Fine dining should be. -Food was okay, first dish salmon was okay, second dish as pescatarian I got a burrata with rocket (although I told them I am allergic to rocket), third dish I got a mushroom risotto and that was very good, and last dish I got a fish which was not good at all. Had a bite and left it there. For my partner food (the menu food), Chicken was good, Kangaroo was too hard, Lamb was good. -I have to say the portions of each food are really big and you won’t go hungry. Overall there fine dining experience was completely missed for me. Staff should be trained to a fine dining, there are a lot of other restaurants in Canberra where for the same price (dinner+wine pairing) the overall experience is at another level. See less

Thoroughly enjoyable, I'll be back. Enjoyed a 3 course lunch that left us waddling out the door sated. Staff friendly, attentive and intuitive service well done team. The chef able to cook a roo loin so that it was moist, tender and tasty. Never thought that I would compliment roo in that way! Quality of rest of dishes stunningly good as well. See less

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed a 5 course degustation at Waters Edge Restaurant tonight. From the moment we arrived the staff were attentive and provided excellent table service. Each beautifully presented and delicious course was brought to our table by Avi, the head chef, who explained each course clearly to us. It is always appreciated when a chef takes the time to meet with the diners. It makes the evening even more special and memorable. We would highly recommend an evening out at Waters Edge Restaurant if you are looking for somewhere special to go. See less

Highly recommend this restaurant. I came here to try out their special offer which was the 89 dollars 5 courses. The food quality compare to this price is very competitive. Every dishes came out perfect except for the lamb blackstrap was over cooked. I got my one was close to medium well and wife’s one was almost well done. And that has to taken a star down. Services was on the spot. And also idk if any other people noticed or not. The carpet looks a bit too greasy and dirty for me. See less

My wife and I celebrated her birthday yesterday and after trying several times in the past to obtain a reservation, we finally got one. This place is always booked out and for good reason. The service was friendly, restaurant was quiet even though it was full of diners, the music was low which meant my wife and I could speak at normal levels (this is important to us). We had the three course degustation and the chef made allowances for my wife’s dietary requirements. The cuisine was unreal, I had the best risotto ever and the other courses complemented each other perfectly and it all cost less than I expected. Thank you Water’s Edge for a fantastic experience.

A visit down to a rainy Canberra just turned out to a very good start. As I was driving by its famous Lake Burley Griffin and drove past a nice looking restaurant, I thought that having a nice lunch would be a good way to start and I was not wrong. I was warmly welcomed by Fritz and Pathum who showed me to, in my opinion, the best table in the house with a fabulous view of the lake. There I sat and enjoyed a superb 3 course Menu which could not have been tastier from the entrée to the dessert. Hats off to the chef! A big thank you also to Rashim who along with Fritz and Pathum looked after me and made my day a lot better than expected. I had without a doubt the best service possible and I will most certainly be coming back to the Waters Edge, next time I visit Canberra. See less

Amazing food. Had the 5 course chefs selection. Explosion of flavour in every course. The new pork jowl was very tasty with the apple bacon sauce. Very tender and juicy. Quite full afterwards. Very happy with the excellent service also. See less

Absolutely amazing food. Water's Edge provides a fine dining experience equal to, if not better, than any other restaurant in Canberra. Nestled on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin, the restaurant provides wonderful views of the lake through it's expansive floor to ceiling windows, and is easily accessible with ample parking close by. The chef provides fantastic meals, that not only taste amazing, but are a visual treat. The staff are extremely courteous and attentive to your every need. If I could give six stars for the Water's Edge Restaurant, I would. A wonderful experience for couples, special occasions or groups looking for that higher dining experience. Kudos to the Chef and staff. See less
