Four of us arrived for lunch a little after one pm and there were only a few tables occupied. The lunch menu was short but varied and everyone had no trouble making a selection: fresh tomato soup with a walnut blue cheese side salad, tuna...More

There aren't many fine dining options on the Sunshine Coast, so we were happy to stumble across Rockwater's restaurant. Beautifully situated, with a view like Tofino (without the long ferry ride/drive). Very friendly and helpful service. Flatiron steak was excellent, in particular the fabulous and...More
