The meals are over the top expensive ($46 for a steak). I thought that this would mean the food was great. I ordered at 7.45pm and honestly I think the chef couldn't be bothered. My steak was not medium rare (cooked medium to well instead) and the salad was meant to be char grilled cherry tomatoes but they were not... More

I went here for lunch and had the best steak sandwich I can remember. I returned for dinner and had a chicken and mushroom risotto that was absolutely beautiful. A very high quality restaurant with excellent staff offering good old fashion service a fantastic out look over the river. I very highly recommend this restaurant

The barramundi was delicious, grilled to perfection and very fresh! White table cloth al a carte dining with a beautiful river view from the outdoor deck. The service was excellent, however we were the only diners in the restaurant on a Tuesday night!

Had dinner and breakfast here as was staying in the hotel next door. It looks like a decent restaurant but certainly didn't deliver when it came to the food. Poorly cooked, lacking in taste and it took ages to arrive, especially the dinner. Try elsewhere if you can.

I have eaten at H2O several times in the last few years when visiting Bundaberg. The outlook is pleasant over the river. The food has always been of good quality and staff friendly enough. It isn't fine dining but an acceptable meal for acceptable price. No it isn't the standard you will find in Brisbane or larger cities but in... More

We had to wait an hour and a half for most meals and even longer for another. Most of us finished before the last meal was served to our table. Not even a sorry. The price was very expensive for a pub steak.

Reasonable food, bad waiting and 152 minute wait for food order. Crazy waiting staff will place drinks on table but expect you to hand empty bottles and plates to them. Total inexperience and wouldn't pour wine either. After 60 mins wait they advised of another 30minutes wait and could we order some entree while we wait. Mains took longer than... More

Continental breakfast stocks for selection were bare minimum and we couldn't get a hot cup of coffee. Staff then said did we want a cup of coffee and he bought out book to write them down and then I thought he looks like he is going to charge us extra for this coffee and sure enough he was.
