Great Offerings

Spacious and wonderfully comfortable, the friendly waitstaff are eager to please. One of few locations on the main drag to offer local beer. Very ample portions and great desserts.

Such a great place to eat. Very good food and excellent prices. What more could you ask for. Situated in Irish town very close to Main Street. There is the normal menu but there are always specials on offer.

Visited the Clipper during a visit to Gibraltar. We first come across the Clipper whilst looking for an early morning coffee and a bit of breakfast. From the moment we were served we had already decided that we would be back to sample their lunch menu. The Clipper is exceptionally clean and well presented. For lunch we opted for chicken... More

I dared to walk past the sign that said 'wait to be seated' and was reprimanded by a overly aggressive member of staff Not a great way to begin the clipper customer service experience Maybe they were having a bad day but place was empty and you lost a table there because of it rude and unnecessary I would advise...

I found this restaurant whilst on a day visit and i was wandering around. The staff were very friendly and service was good. There was a good choice of food, all reasonably priced and I didn't have to wait long at all. The restaurant is licensed should you wish an alcoholic drink with your meal. I would go there again...

Gibraltar is full of "English" food. Fish and chips everywhere. The Clipper provides good food and decent wine and beer (English). Its not Michelin star but it does not pretend to be. The staff are helpful and the service good

Visited after a recommendation and was not diasappointed. Had lunch and was so impressed we revisited with friends for an evening meal. Extremely friendly staff and attentive without being intrusive allowing a relaxing experience. So much better than their local competitors.
