Happy friendly staff, million dollar location and everything comes quick and fresh out of an obviously well-equipped kitchen in plain view at the back. Only mild criticisms are that it's an upscale restaurant with a rather ordinary menu which includes hamburgers. My caesar salad with smoked salmon was delicious but a bit pricey at $33 but other than price and limited menu Bluewater is a great experience.

An easy & pleasurable dining experience. Now they’ve changed the menu back to offering more than pizza, pasta & burgers, will be happy to go there time & time again.

Wonderful experience with our 1st First Table booking.

The menu was not edited to accommodate the discount and the food was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and the service was quick. The restaurant overlooks Manly beach, so we had a lovely setting also.

Would HIGHLY recommend the Seafood Platter, which would easily feed 3 to 4 people ... very fresh and beautifully cooked.

Will definitely return in the future.

The prawn pizza was absolutely amazing! We also got the seafood marinara but there was barely any seafood in it so it was basically just pasta. The service wasn't great there was little to no communication and we were asked what we would like literally 2 minutes after sitting down. The pizza was awesome though :)

I loved the setting of Blue Water - overlooking Manly beach at sunset. We shared the fresh oysters and crispy squid to start - for mains I had the grilled barramundi and salad - delicious !! The service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Absolutely fine. Just got caught out with the change in the menu.
Now only offering pizza, pasta & burgers. Nothing to complain about with what we had served. Service no problem either. Didn’t think to check menu as dined there previously.

Locals in the area. Thought we’d give it ‘another’ try...
Whole experience very poor.
Kids pencils all broken.
Pizza and burgers v poor.
Give it a miss.

We went on a cold miserable night. I think it would be a lovely cafe to go to for breakfast or lunch. It is opposite the beach and is very reasonably priced and has various food options, to please all of the family. The staff are very friendly.

This was a perfect choice for a relaxed meal with the ocean surf a thong-throw away. It is casual cafe style eating, the food servings generous and the table service friendly. It was just two of us dining, one went Barramundi, the other steak. The mushroom sauce on the steak was a bit overpowering, this was the only criticism. Dessert was excellent - all in all great value from First Table if you are looking for a casual dining experience.

Great food, I had the Barrumundi with crunch as a main which was delicious! Cocktails here are great and not overly expensive either, around the $12 mark. Was a good feed after a hard day at work. Got to sit back and enjoy the view right on the beach front.

Had a very pleasant evening at the bluewater cafe. Our waiter recommend the baramundi which turned out to be excellent, both in taste and presentation. Husband had the steak, he also was impressed. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone seeking good food in a relaxed place to eat.
