At the doorstep of the world-renowned Great Barrier Reef, sits the vibrant city of Cairns. From crystal clear waters to a buzzing and lively nightlife, Cairns ticks all the boxes for your perfect tropical getaway.

Now known as one of the most popular names in FNQ dining, the Waterbar & Grill Cairns Restaurant is nestled right along the Cairns Marlin Marina, at The Pier retail and dining precinct. A prime location to indulge in the finest food and cocktails. 

Guests gaze out to the magnificent Marina and inhale the crisp ocean air. As you sip on your wine, watch the yachts glide along the smooth waters. Beyond the vessels sit the breathtaking mountains.

Some might suggest a view is best from the peak of a mountain but the outlook from the Waterbar & Grill beautifully declines that. Take in the landscape and allow your eyes to follow the sloping mountains all the way down to the horizon. This spectacular scenery is best accompanied by divine flavours.

The Waterbar & Grill Steakhouse matches the atmosphere by providing an equally amazing dining experience. After 16 years of service, the Waterbar & Grill has established itself as the premier steak restaurant in Cairns securing the top spot on the ‘places to visit in Cairns’ list.

The location’s perks don’t stop at the breathtaking views. Being located on Pier Point Rd means the Waterbar & Grill sits amongst good company (and we aren’t just talking about the superyachts). The Pier Shopping Centre is also home to a range of charming boutique stores and services. From high-end resort wear from Splish Splash to dazzling jewellery from Priceless Gems. It doesn’t stop there, feel your tension melt away at the Oiled Massage Salon.

It’s safe to say the Waterbar & Grill is the Cairns Restaurant you need to try. The ultimate steakhouse: succulent meat, big flavours, exceptional service and of course the incredible Cairn’s waterfront location. A restaurant doesn’t just meet expectations but exceeds them. On your next visit to Cairn’s add the Waterbar and Grill to the top of your places to visit in Cairns to-do list. You will not regret it.
