The square is a great area to sit with a coffee or something stronger and watch the world go by in the sun.

Sort of sad and not quite open on our visit. We wanted somewhere to eat that wasn't fish and chips or 'English food' we probably looked in the wrong places. The square itself was quite pretty with some historic upper levels with shops.

A bit commercialized nowadays, Burger King sort of spoils the ambiance of the area. The restaurants are good value however on a cold windy night there seems to be limited inside accommodation.

This is the hub of social activity in town. Plenty of eating and drinking options around the Square. Casemates marks the start of the many shops along Main Street. We liked the Lord Nelson, the All'swell and Roy's Fish and Chips.

We spent a lot of time here last week as the weather was fabulous and we could shop, stop for coffee and lunch, soak up the sun and people watch. Quite a good choice of eateries to suit everyone.

Good selection of restaurants. Our Maitre-d' was a little grumpy as we were only indulging in a Main plus single drink each. Check out the menu as you go round in the morning, and select by looking at dish-appeal and faces on punters rather than menu only

Whilst on a 3-day trip to Gibraltar, Casemates Square definitely couldn't be missed off the list. It is a very easy walk from the Spanish border via the road over the runway and past a NatWest bank among others just to remind you that the UK still controls this remote outpost on the shores of the Med!
