The latest restaurant to have opened at Southgate is Waterfront, a prestigious seafood bar and grill on the ground level opening to the river promenade.

The Zampelis family have a long tradition of serving high quality fresh food in Australia dating back to 1902 when Dimitrios Zampelis' emigrated from the Island of Lefkas Greece.

He was one of the first people to establish a seafood cafe in Australia. Dimitrios sponsored his nephews Nicholas (in 1924) and George (in 1954) to come to Australia and help expand his business. It is George's sons who continue the family business today. Having successfully operated at Crown for 15 years, the group is proud to now be associated with Southgate in a new and exciting premises. The new location allows for a much more enhanced experience for diners. A continued focus remains on the fresh 'from the sea' and 'from the farm' to the plate philosophy.

The new location on the promenade has been designed to enhance your dining experience by incorporating several new features including:

  • Alfresco dining area for in excess of 100 people
  • Larger meat lockers ageing whole meat on the bone, then cooked on new state of the art char-grills and ovens
  • Two larger crustacea, raw, oyster bars
  • Made to order seafood chowders
  • And of course the freshest seafood dishes customers have come to love over the years.

This is all complemented by an extensive red wine list sourced globally and a continued commitment to fresh produce and excellent service.
