This is really a tale of two halves, The Square is full of life during the day, a large selection of restaurants and coffee shops to choose from, but later on it all gets rather quiet. It's not that we are night time revellers, but we thought that we could stroll in around Dinner time (after 7) for a meal... More

An interesting mix of bars, restaurants, shops and museums, Casemate Square has to be on your Gibraltar itinerary. Try the Lord Nelson for your favourite pint. The Square has lost some of its buzz, many of the former clientele now being found in Ocean Village, but it is still worth a visit.

Casemates Square is where you first descend as a newly arrived tourist. It's surrounded by bars and shops and provide one end of Main Street, where all the 'main' shops can be found. Try to be there between noon and 12:30pm on a Saturday, when there is a re-enactment of The Ceremony of the Keys. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceremony_of_the_Keys

This place is on a par with any major Italian piazza, or any european town square. The only difference is you can get Old fashioned British Fish and Chips, whilst you sip on a cold beer and sit in the sun. One of my most favourite places on this amazing planet of ours. Check it out for yourself.

This is the place to be especially when there is a sporting event on. They put a big screen up in the square and you can sit out with everyone else and enjoy with cups of tea or pints of beer. The locals are so warm and friendly here

Great place! Lots of bars and restaurants. Also live music most nights. They have a great "Brit" music scene there plus lots of "Gib" musicians performing. They are mostly amateur but most of these guys are extremely good. Head this way for a great night out.

Nice square with lots of bars and restaurant. A bit packed but nice to seat. A mix of tourists and UK troops/civil servants with family.

Casemates Square is a welcoming watering hole after a stroll down the main street called Main Street! A variety of cafes, shops and pubs surround the square on all sides.

As always with 'tourist' areas, you can find quality, reasonably priced food if you know what you are looking for. The square itself is nice, it's fun to people watch as you eat and whilst it's bustling, it definitely doesn't feel cramped.

Very pleasant square to sit, dine people watch Varied shops, but a complete tourist trap, it's the first place from Spain, and is very expensive
