Fab grilled cuttlefish and swordfish! Very quiet low key bar. Would have sat outside if the weather was better.

We ate here one evening, the squid was fantastic (along with the other dishes). A lovely pint too. The place is liked by my friends that live in Gib, and if you are staying at the Caleta it is one of a few restaurants along the bay to try.

I'd just arrived in sunny Gibraltar after getting up at 4am (BST) in order to catch a plane. I couldn't yet check in at my hotel and as luck would have it the Seawave was the first place I happened on. Entering the pub was somewhat surreal. The World Cup had just begun and the 'old English' style venue was... More

This is an unassuming little bar on the beachwalk at Catalan bay, down towards the Caleta Hotel end. It has a few outside tables. Normally one wouldn't give it a second look amongst the other choices, but having been introduced to it by locals, one can say that they do make a real effort with the cooking. Its difficult to...

The staff are friendly and there is a good atmosphere in the restaurant. It is also possible to just have a drink at the bar. It... More

Recently had two lunches here. It used to be our favourite beach bar. The food is generally okay but on the day we had tapas we had to send a dish of meatballs back as they were really cold in the middle. The dish was returned to us heated up but still with the broken pieces of meatball in the... More

Byron and his team run a phenomenal bar. It gets to the afternoon and this is where we come when thirsty and in need of a good quantity of good food!

Great place right on Catalan Bay beach and does the most wonderful different types of tapas using the freshest ingredients. We had a lot of fish here and every dish was lovely and well priced.
