Looking for a fun night out fuelled by a spicy Shiraz then head to the Waterbar and Grill Steakhouse? If you would prefer a proper meal over share plates, check out their Espadata – a tender skewed rump served with succulent red wine and chilli sauce. The red wine sauce is divine, but if it wasn’t strong enough make sure you accompany it with a Barossa Valley cab sav. If you’d prefer a glass of sparkling or a Marlborough Pinot Gris, then try their grilled atlantic salmon served with spinach, feta and pimento salad.

Where: Pier Shopping Centre, Pier Shopping Centre, Cairns QLD 4870
