Great food, fantastic views, good service. You can also have a beer and the coffee is great. Take your swimmers and take a dip before or after your lunch.

Used to be one of my favorite cafes. New owners, new name 'riverway cafe' has dropped in service standards. Staff were rude and very poor communication with customers. Valentine's Day walked in the restaurant made eye contact with staff member who offered no greeting. Took about 15 minutes for a bottle of water to be served to the table. When... More

We went a few times on our visit as it was easy and close to the stadium for lunch, The food was nice but the flies were terrible as the door was always open. Some of the staff were lovely but for the most it felt like they really didn't want to be there which us a shame as it... More

Had lunch at this beautiful location and was very disappointed. No table service, had to ask for more cutlery. No one comes near you to ask if you would like anything. Menu has changed from what it was. Food was nothing exciting. Plates filled with chips. Those who had salads found they were limp and drowning in dressing. When clearing... More

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic breakfast at the C Bar. I had the eggs Benedict whilst my wife enjoyed the banana & buttermilk pancakes with mascarpone, maple syrup and candied pecans. The mango and gelato smoothie is a must have and comes super sized for two to share.

Absolutely delicious food. Corn cakes, french toast and pancakes were enjoyed by us. Good service, fairly prompt. Lovely decor and outlook. Quiet and peaceful at first but then quite noisy with loud talkers, and a crying baby. Quite expensive too - nearly $80 for 2 adults and 2 children for breakfast. But worth it - food was a taste sensation!... More

Visted on a Sunday with my two children who were playing around the lagoon. Went to C Bar to get a takeaway coffee so my children could continue playing (and we wouldn't interrupt diners but sitting in the restaurant with two boisterous children). Was refused service of a take away coffee (rather rudely) with the excuse of being "too busy... More

Not only had you got great food but it is also a stunning location right on the edge of the lagoon. We only managed to get here once but I will be back again. Staff were lovely.

Coming from overseas, I am always amazed at how little people there are using the free pool facilities at Riverway. I am also amazed at how C Bar Riverway is often empty when we go. While everyone is packing themselves into the C Bar located on the Strand, this little cafe must be one of Townsville's best kept secrets. We... More
