Located right by Victoria Harbour, Docklands, close to Melbourne’s major sporting and entertainment venue Etihad Stadium.

Perched right on the water at Victoria Harbour, Watermark Bar is uniquely designed to provide superb indoor and alfresco dining areas for guests to enjoy picturesque city views and waterfront ambience. Polished floorboards, high ceilings and expansive glass windows pour light into the dynamic space, a local favourite with the after work drinks crowd and visitors after a relaxing meal with friends.

With a stunning outlook across the bay through its floor to ceiling windows, Watermark offers the very best of waterside dining. Watermark is built around the picturesque views of Victoria Harbour with a flexibility that allows it to cater to leisurely drinks, dining or special occasion functions. The distinct areas each offer casual waterside ambience which has an energy that comes from the enjoyement of its guests. The natural beauty of the view seen through the glass frontage is the inspiration for the refreshing menu. Relax with a drink after work in the stylish, sun drenched Pavilion, enjoy a quiet dinner in the lounge area or utilise the Loft for a private function with a variety of catering options available. Close to Etihad stadium, Watermark is also a popular watering hole before and after sporting events.

Watermark’s menu features a diverse range of contemporary options, with seasonally focused dishes that are ideal for sharing. A large proportion of the menu has a seafood and steak focus. Watermark is designed around the enjoyment of the natural elements of soft sun and lapping water, which contributes to the calming ambience.

Function spaces at Watermark cover all event styles and moods.

The Mezzanine area’s plush red sofas and ottomans create a relaxed ambience for events of up to 30 people, while the slick marble bar in the sophisticated Loft is ideal for cocktail events for up to 70, or 40 people seated. Finally, the Lounge area works well for small or large group seated dining occasions.

Watermark Restaurant Docklands - User Reviews

Mary V:

I had dinner at the Watermark last night (09/02/12) with a client. For starters I had Grilled Peach, Prosciutto and Goats Cheese - yum, what a great combination. My client had the eggplant parma which for an entree was huge (could have been a main meal) - it was delicious. Both of us had the Veal Milanese which was scrumptuous. Unfortunately we could not fit in desserts. Compliments to the Chef and staff, I did not think Docklands had a decent restaurant until I ate at the Watermark. Top marks guys and great value for money. Do yourself a favour and venture down to Docklands for a great night  09/02/2012

I went to the Watermark with my 85 year old mother on Friday, 27 February and had a fantastic evening. Both the service and food was terrific and the free live entertainment was a real treat. I could not fault the venue, food or service. Have returned since to entertain clients and highly recommend this  08/02/2012

Worst experience ever. Went to the restaurant with high expectations as it was recommended by a cudo customer. Arrived at 7 pm with no reservation and we were told we had to vacate by 8pm. No sooner had we ordered, that the entree was served (prosciutto). Finished the entree and wouldn't you know it mains arrived (mine crumbed veal and my partner's alleged barramundi) served on a small plate that my school canteen used and both accompanied by the same type and amount of microwaved vegies, carrots, brocolis, beans, (I may have had one more carrot). the whole thing was virtually cold. Next table as you would have it had exactly the same dishes (the lady did not touch hers and her partner ate because as he told me "he was hungry"). We left by 7.30PM and we managed to talk /complain to the manager who advised "not to come here if we didn't like the meal" that he "didn't need customers like us" and that we "should not talk to other customers". STUNNED. ....DO NOT GO THERE, $100 rip-off. I'm no chef but would have done a better job. Where is Gordon when you need him, he would have a field day !!!review  27/01/2012

I took some clients to Watermark to thank them for their continued business and support throughout the year. We started with a lovely bottle of French Bubbly followed by shared starters, delicious mains and desserts to die for. The staff were very attentive, food and atmosphere were great, and best of all, clients were impressed and enjoyed the evening immensely. Thanks for a great  29/12/2011

I had a coupon to use at this restaurant. We were not given a huge range to choose from, so if you are vegetarian seek elsewhere to dine. Staff were very pleasant but sometimes absent when needed (chatting to themselves). Entree 3 dips and toasted cibatta bread, then we had an option of either barramundi or steak. We both had steak, one med-rare, the other medium. They unfortuntly came out blue and  30/11/2011
