- take a small plastic bottle with you (like the 500ml orange juice ones)
and fill it from the sink in the dunny, or
- order the water, specify normal tap water, and if they charged for it
on the bill at the end refuse to pay (just the bit for the water),
you might have to argue a bit but they always give in eventually
(in my experience anyway).

(not that I've had to do that for a while, charging for water seems to 
mainly be a Sydney thing, in Adelaide it's increasingly popular for
restaurants to automatically supply (free) a jug of water and glasses)
