Description: The Watergate Restaurant & Lounge Bar is located in the heart of Port Douglas, at the corner of Grant and Macrossan Street behind the Rotary Park. Enter down the flame lit path from Macrossan Street. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor dining. Watergate's cuisine is modern Australian. Executive Chef Lee Neate sources fresh, seasonal produce to prepare innovative dishes that reflect contemporary trends in Australian cooking. Opening hours : the restaurant is open for lunch from midday, and dinner is served from 5:30 pm, seven days a week. We also have a light lounge menu available available through the day until late. Watergate also has a well appointed bar, ideal for a cocktail as the sunsets, or maybe a light meal from the lounge menu with a bottle of wine. It is also available for a pre-dinner drink, or desserts and coffee at the end of the night.

Was made very welcome from the moment my friends and myself walked in. We were shown to our tables and were greeted by our lovely waitress who promptly gave us drink menus and took orders. The restaraunt is beautiful and the food was fabulous. We had a great night enjoying our friends bday. It was Canivale night and we had fireworks to make it extra special and I would definately come back. Thanks to all your staff for making is all feel.so welcome.

Service was spot on - delicious food and a large selection of meals to choose from! Even had a separate vegetarian menu...
Food came out quickly and the atmosphere was very relaxing surrounded by plants and candles etc. perfect for a romantic dinner out or a special occasion! Make sure to book well ahead during peak season.

Perfect - a must for everyone.
We had lunch and the setting, meals were so good.
Booked ahead with many meals so we didn’t get a chance to return. We ended up sharing as we couldn’t decide what the best dish was.
