My partner and I have dined at Aegean Waters as a couple and with family and friends for many years and it was a pleasure to return there last night.

Liberty and Christian have created a very special place where consistently high quality food perfectly complements a magical environment with engaging artwork, warm ambiance and friendly, welcoming service.

The bar is a comfortable, relaxing area to try a cocktail, savour some garlic bread, get to know your host, and make your food and wine selections.

The menu is extensive with many choices that my partner has enjoyed, including Fried Camembert, Escargot, Coquilles Saint-Jacques, Les Cervelles, Tournedos Diane, Carpet Bag Steak, and Duckling Mandarin, always outstanding. For me, the Smoked Salmon and Trout Terrine, followed by Beef Wellington, are addictive.

The portions are generous, presented with great care, and the flavours are enticing.

Every detail at Aegean Waters blends together to ensure an enchanting dining experience.

If you like good food and fine dining this is the place for you. French cuisine but make sure you book as this is a must! We ate the menu and were feted with everything from 6 pm to 10 pm. No fast food here just impeccable food and time toenjoy it all!

As long time regulars of the Agean Waters restaurant we love to introduce friends to experience a delightful night out with fabulous food and atmosphere. Last night was no exception, 2 couples joining us as first timers are wondering why they have missed such an opportunity . There is so much to choose from on the menu, although we tend to have our favourites, which our ever obliging host Liberty can usually guess what we might order. Drinks and garlic bread already sorted as we walk in the door! See you again soon Liberty and Christian.

Even days later I still feel the special experience myself mum and my partner encountered on Saturday night.Escargot and french onion soup were a traditional and delicious start to our evening experience.Immediately when you walk in you are warmly greeted and the ambience that is created by the beautiful prints (we sat next to a huge Renoir) and subtle lighting.Lamb cutlets with a mustard sauce for me,mum had chicken breast with avocado and a champagne sauce,Janet a carpetbag steak.All totally delicious accompanied by croquette potatoes and a variety of fresh vegetables all cooked to perfection.To finish orgazmic profiteroles that really blow your mind and a to die for light creamy Grand Marnier parfait YUMMMM!Of course we washed each course down with a bottle of french sav blanc(Arrogant Frog) delightful.Just when we thought the amazing evening was coming to an end we heard a rendition of Happy Birthday in french and mum was presented with a cascading dry ice bowl with an assortment of chocolates and gift.I had mentioned on booking that we had tried to book for mums birthday but were not able to get a table so they remembered and made it special anyway.
The gift was a special perfume necklace that I know mum will treasure and remember our amazing french experience at the Aegean Waters.Will be back very soon!!

Great service and great food! Definitely have the chocolate soufflé and ask about the portraits. Also had the garlic prawns, barramundi and the filet mignon, all as amazing as the next! An amazing French food experience in little Hervey Bay! Unbelievable! Would definitely recommend for the experienced foodie.
