Three teenagers give their point of view on Cairns’ restaurants - food, customer service, atmosphere and price.
The Cairns Waterbar & Grill Steakhouse is located at the Pier, overlooking the marina. Ph. 40 311 199.
Ayano: (Thai Beef Salad) It was actually preeeeeetty good. The beef in it was better than the ones at uni. It wasn’t too spicy either… like the uni one… 8/10.
Dylan: (350g rump steak served with chips and salad) Well done, no complaints. 8/10.
Hanna: (Fish and Chips, with beer-battered flathead and a side salad) Chips were aweeeeesome, but the flathead kind of tasted like fridge. Granted, I’m spoiled with a father who brings me home fresh fish, but they could’ve done a little better. On the other hand, the side salad was delicious. 6/10.
Ayano: The music wasn’t old people music..which was good. The music was there..but it was subtle. And no..it wasn’t classical music either. :P 6/10.
Dylan: relaxed, casual but with pleasant views over the marina. Set away from main drag which means no through traffic or excessive hustle and bustle. Lighting was trying to set a mood by being dim, however was trying a little bit too hard. 6/10.
Hanna: It was a nice resturant overall, with nice water views, but our table was on a fairly serious slant. Not enough to spill drinks, but enough to make it awkward. The lighting was also a bit too dim, with fantastically classy fake candles. 5/10.
Ayano: The staff were nice and stuff.. we didn’t get evil stared or anything. :D Which was nice. 8/10.
Dylan: attentive waiters were friendly and prompt with service. Food preparation time was reasonable for an early friday evening, we were checked upon that our meals were satisfactory on a few occasions throughout. 8/10.
Hanna: The staff were excellent. Presentation could be improved on, but they prompt and friendly… and our drinks waiter had nice arms. 8/10.
Ayano: I think I got value for money. I was pretty full..or at least 8/10ths full. Oh and we got free bread. Which was handy. Cause I like free stuff. :) 8/10.
Dylan: serving size in reference to price was alright, drinks a little over priced, and having to pay for additions such as a side sauce makes it outside of the price range for regular returns. 7/10.
Hanna: Considering the fridge-fish, prices for meals could’ve been a bit cheaper. Also, $4 a drink made me cringe a little. However, I guess the price was fairly reasonable, considering the lovely location… and waiter with nice arms. 6/10.
Customer Service: 8/10.
