We went to this place for lunch on a Sunday and it was so good we went back for dinner in a Thursday! Great little casual but fine dining experience in rainbow beach. For the quality of food the prices were also fantastic. The seafood chowder and duck are exceptional. The courtesy bus to and from the restaurant is also a bonus!

I visit Rainbow Beach on a regular basis and this was my first visit to the Waterview. The service was exceptional and the food was devine.

We shared the aranchini balls and goats cheese salad for entree - gorgeous. Gnocchi and lamb ragout with parpadelle for mains followed by (apparently) an exceptional crime brûlée (one of us is trying to watch their weight!!)

I would highly recommend the Waterview to anyone visiting Rainbow Beach.

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner and were pleasantly surprised with the great food and also the service. The lady who seems to be the manager was spot on with the service asking for another drink just as the last sip and genuinely just old fashioned friendly. My boyfriend had the seafood chowder which is one of two specialty dishes and loved it even though it was something he wouldn’t normally order. The seafood actually says where it all comes from on the menu, and is a good mix of local products. I had the vegetarian spaghetti which was full of flavour and a hint of chilli. We shared pumpkin and mozzarella arancini balls to start which were absolutely delicious and also a crème brulee at the end which was also mouth-watering. I would quite easily say this is the nicest restaurant at Rainbow Beach and is also matched by the views. Make sure to there just before the sun goes down to enjoy. Its also a great place to stop for a cocktail if you are going up to see the Carlo Sandblow at Rainbow Beach.
