Great ambience, exceptional serivce, friendly staff. Food is amazing. Restaurant layout is such that you can see the chef preparing your meal in the centre of the restaurant. This was wonderful to watch, sometimes forgetting to actually eat your food.....

The restaurant is within the hotel property. The set up is sophisticated and modern. Food is really fantastic. I tried a few items and I really enjoyed them. However the service here is extremely slow. Best not to come if you are in a hurry.

We had dinner here on our first night and it was quite only 16 of us by the end of the evening. Staff were very good and our steaks were excellent you could have cut it with a butter knife. Shame there wasn't more people in?

We were staying here so wanted to try this restaurant, but it was better to go to a different restaurant. The atmosphere was terrible, the restaurant is full of cooking smell. The don't have a good ventilation. I won't recommend this to anybody!

Waterside Grill & Bar is one of three restaurants at the Oubaai Hotel. The centrepiece of the restaurant is the "show kitchen" as all the food is prepared there. The fillet was cooked to perfection, the wine list is also good. A nice evening out and one of the best meals I had during our stay in George / Herold's... More

We had to wait more than 20min before someone arrived with a Food menu, then we were just Handed the menu without being asked what we would like to drink.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel and had a dinner at the restaurant. We ordered fish which came with delicious, fresh crispy fries and tasty vegetables. Enjoyed the evening very much.
