Great calamari

Ordered a plate of Calamari as a quick bite to eat and was cooked beautifully. Right amount of smooth batter and the calamari was nice and tender. Would recommend.

The Calamari was so deep fried it tasted like it had been sitting round for days. The prawns were OK , I ordered bread and... More

We ate in the Seawave on about 3 occasions and whilst not overly impressed ( it is a bar ) were certainly never disappointed . It is what it is a small bar with tables both inside and out , the menu has a few English dishes on there for those of you who must but that is not why... More

The Seawave is nicely positioned right next to the beach and the food was pretty good overall, however, the seafood is server in a 'Portion' to place on the table for sharing. having experienced this form of eating in most of the local Gibraltar & Spanish restaurants on the Rock & over the border, it is worth noting that the...

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.

This is the place to end the day.We always visit this restaurant when in Gibraltar. The sea food is fresh and well presented nice cold larger and friendly fast service and if you sit outside you can eat with the sound of the sea lapping the shore what more could you ask for,oh yes and the price is very reasonable....
