About Waters Edge Bistro

As dusk settles and the orange-pink hue of evening light plays across the waters, award-winning Waters Edge Bistro on Benowa Street in Macleay Island makes for a pleasant place to relax and admire the spectacle. Located on the upper level of Club Macleay, visitors enjoy pre-dinner drinks out on a deck by the water, refreshed by ocean breezes; while indoors is warm and welcoming, making for the ideal spot to enjoy a meal with family and friends. Australian bistro-style fare is on offer, perhaps begin with a serve of oysters natural, or salt and pepper calamari; before beer-battered barramundi, chips and salad, or everyone’s favourite butter chicken and steamed rice. Not to be missed are the housemade desserts, including sticky date pudding, crème brûlée and freshly ground Grinders coffee.
