Food Philosophy

“Enjoy. Here at the Waterside Hotel we enjoy our produce, the seasons, learning and entertaining. Without enjoyment, it’s not worth doing.” – Our Head Chef Stuart Munro’s (ex QT Melbourne, Merricote, Cumulus Inc) Food Philosophy.


Delicious Tastes Wait for You – Your Next Dinner in Melbourne

When it comes to finding a delicious place for dinner in Melbourne CBD, the Waterside Hotel is the place to be.

With a plump selection of chicken or beef burgers, chicken parmas and a selection of vegetarian dishes, there is something for everyone.

In the mood for an Australian snack with a twist? You can’t go past the char-grilled lamb ribs with rosemary mayo.
