Reserved Spaces

On a smaller scale, we also offer an array of reserved spaces that may be hired in our public space.


Overlooking the rolling waves of Cronulla beach, our recently refurbished deck is now the ultimate covered outdoor location.


Reserved spaces are available on the Deck 7 days from March throughout September. During the Summer months the Deck is available Monday to Wednesday.


Occupying prime location in the Sunroom right in front of the windows, The Cabana features a combination of banquette seating and individual armchairs and is great for small gatherings in a less formal setting.


Located indoors, this area still enjoys spectacular views across South Cronulla beach.


The Terrace sits between The Deck and Sunroom on the raised eastern platform beside the stairs.


Attendees will enjoy the best of both worlds with easy access to bars in both directions, raised views over Cronulla beach, and the relaxed ease of tall tables with comfortable stools.


This semi private dining space at the southern end of Level 4 seats up to 38 people on 3 gorgeous marble tables. White paneled walls, light timber flooring and nautical fixtures together create a Hamptons inspired space that lends itself perfectly to intimate gatherings.


The room features a flat screen LCD TV, spectacular views across the ocean and full iPod connectivity. Contact the Watergrill directly at 9523 8716 or watergrill@cronullarsl.com.au to book this space.

Our Sharing Platters may be arranged for bookings on The Deck, The Cabana or The Terrace. Our sharing platters may be arranged for bookings in these areas by prior arrangement, or guests may order from Watergrill directly.


A reservation fee of $200 applies to all bookings on The Deck, The Cabana or The Terrace and ensures exclusivity of your designated area for 3 hours and your own bar attendant.


A bar tab can also be pre-arranged prior to your function or on the day with your bar attendant.
