Had a lovely lunch at the Waterfront with my husband and 2 children. The staff were friendly and the food was great. My only criticism is I asked for a cheese sandwich for my daughter which they said they wouldn't do as it's not on the menu.... normally places I have visited are more accommodating when dealing with a fussy...

Excellent place, the owners are obviously well experienced in how to treat their customers, great staff, great atmosphere and just a nice place to be, as a builder I know what hard work has gone on to offer the finish of the family room which we were given on the second floor, up a few stairs but tv's at the...

I always try to stay at the Waterfront or the Bank when I am in Anstruther, both are just great small hotels to stay in. I had room 3 this time, a massive bed and spacious room. Almost nothing to complain about, another great stay. The only problem was that the Wifi didn't reach my room which was a pain,... More

We had eaten there before as we are locals, and the fish supper is actually better than the fish @ The Anstruther Fish Bar (just a few meters along the road) but this time (Monday evening after 6 pm) we did book a table in advance (very friendly). After arriving we sat down, nice, but then we waited, and waited,... More

Another great visit. Service is top notch as is the food. The East Neuk of Fife is one of my favourite places as is the Waterfront. Excellent Mussells. My dad loved the three cheese Mac and chesse. And mums fisf was moist and the batter crisp.

Stayed here as last minute short break. Clean comfortable and bright rooms. We had two single rooms and they were a good size. My Mum's was on a lower floor and slightly bigger. Good breakfast. Had fish and chips for tea in restaurant ~ very busy and popular, food was hot and delicious. Good little spot to find.

Was going to go to Anstruther fish and chip shop but decided instead to visit the waterfront. The meal was excellent well served by very attentive staff whom are a compliment to their employer. Highly recommended to all

We visit the East Neuk frequently to photograph the various harbours. On Sunday we came through to Anstruther and stopped at The Waterfront and though busy with pre booked tables managed to find us a quiet table for 2. Table service from the young staff was excellent, friendly and efficient. Toast arrived followed by 2 well proportioned plates of fish... More

As we get older the high life of clubs, girls and drinking till the sun rises fades, especially for stag trips. The need for all hours drinking is partially replaced by a need for a comfortable bed and a decent breakfast, both of which were available at The Waterfront. An ideal location for access to the golf courses nearby. There... More
