Top Sunday Roast - Very Generous Portions

We dined here shortly after arriving in Gib on an early evening flight - both famished after a day spent travelling and unable to resist the lure of a proper roast dinner. Both me and my partner had the roast pork (my original choice of the roast chicken being sold out) and were very impressed with... read more

We had spicy Moroccan meatballs and roast vegetable couscous ( was not sure where the roast veggies were) and lamb in coconut and coriander with garlic naan (it was more... More

We were in Gibraltar for 5 days on business. Whilst looking around the area we noticed that although there were some nice restaurants, the pubs seemed to be quite small. Not wanting to spend a fortune on evening meals, but wanting to get out of the apartment we came across The Clipper. This bar/restaurant is quite spacious and has a... More

We had a lunch deal, which was a plate of delicious meat with mashed potatoes! Very friendly staff, affordable prices and cozy interiors. I will definitely drop by again when in Gibraltar!

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
