We visited here on a day trip to Gibraltar this week, the food was superb, the service excellent, even though the place was really busy and we went in bang on lunch time. The veggie lasagne was particularly good as were the burgers. Would definitely eat here again.

We visited Gibraltar for a day on a recent trip to Spain, we intended on eating elsewhere but came accross the clipper on a wonder around the streets. We were warmly greeted, and seated quickly. The portions were a lot larger then expected, which we were pleased with after walking around the island all day. The prices were far lower... More

Had dinner with our two grandaughters the children's menu is great and they also gave them colouring to do. The food is good and the place very friendly. Went back next day for breakfast and did not have the children but they remembered us and asked where the children were which was nice. Breakfast was as good as the dinner.... More

Our visit to Gibraltar was on a Sunday and all the shops and a lot of the restaurants were closed. After looking around for a while, we found this restaurant. It is situated on a street where there is no parking outside, (we had already parked in a multi-storey quite a way away). Access to the restaurant itself is quite... More

Someone rather cruelly described the Isle of Man as 80,000 alcoholics clinging to a rock in the Irish Sea! Well it would be equally cruel to say that Gibraltar is 30,000 Brits clinging to a rock that looks like a pimple on the bottom of Spain! But it does have certain characteristics of all British colonial communities. In many ways... More

Bar serving good quality and very reasonably priced pub grub. Choose two main courses from the £7.95 menu and get both for £11.95. Great value. Also great atmosphere and attentive service. What more can you ask for?

We had lunch here whilst I was visiting Gibraltar. November is a good month to visit Gibraltar, however it can start to become a little chilly at night, just into single figures, The food (I had fish and chips, being a Friday!) wasn't the best in the world (fairly standard to a Wetherspoons in the UK) but the prices reflected...
