Good food

Good food and service, plenty of seats outside, with a sea view, if the weather is clement! Bar food is excellent, good value for money.

I booked afternoon tea for my mother and myself at £12.95 per person. The sandwiches were a complete joke! Cheap white bread and hardly any filling what so ever. There was a cheesecake in little dishes, along with other sweets, but no spoon provided to eat it with. A café would have provided better.

I took family members here for Afternoon Tea recently. Sadly, the service was a lacking from the very start. Although only the veranda tables were taken, no one seemed to know where we were to be seated, and in the end were seated at a table in the middle of the room. We were bought 4 pots of tea (each...

It was the final event in my wife's ** birthday, the family one, organised by my daughter and daughter in law, with help from my son who plays cricket with and is a friend of the executive chef. We had a private suite which looked out onto the beach and as our group included our grandchildren this was ideal as... More

After several days on the road, I was ready for some fine dining. The Waterfront did not disappoint. From stellar service, well balanced and engaging flavors to a sprawling harbor view, an elegant layout, and classy cutlery, I was very happy I dined here. Though I would agree that portion size seems small at first, I wasn't able to finish... More

We come here quite often because of the location, and the food is generally quite good for the money. If you live in the area it is well worth a visit.

We would like to thank the Waterfront for an amazing afternoon tea.we had 5 cakes, a scone, and 4 different sandwiches, all were delicious! We hadn't booked but the staff made room for us and even found us a window seat with a view over the harbour.

Absolute perfection. The whole experience from start to finish warrants a 5 Star rating. From the lovely greeting at reception right through to departure, we were made to feel special. We were granted a window seat so as to watch the activities in the harbour. Every member of the catering staff was so pleasant and cheerful. We sent compliments to... More

We ordered tomato basil pasta for the kids, a Greek salad and a lamb roast. The pasta was so overcooked I would have used it for compost back at home. I would only feed it to a dog. One I didn't like. The tomato sauce was essentially that. Plain tomatoes from the tin can without any preparation. No onions, no... More
