Superb setting

Food is excellent, we only had one meal here and couldn't fault it the pate was excellent, fillet steaks were cooked perfectly though the au poivre sauce seemed to be missing a hit of brandy! Prices are average for Gibraltar. Staff are very helpful and friendly however we felt certain employees... read more

Went back to the Waterfront on my return to Gib a few weeks ago. I had the lamb tagine which was amazing and very good value. I will return here again and again each time I visit Gib

We ate dinner here twice while staying for a few days in April 2015. The Waterfront menu had loads of choice, accessible for kids and tasty options for adults. The marina location is pretty, especially as the sun sets. I enjoyed the fisherman's combo, the garlic bread is fab and the Iberian selection was very tasty. We especially liked the... More

Super food and good service. We visited this restaurant twice even though we were only in Gibraltar for 5 nights. It was very interesting listening to other diners complimenting the staff on the food - which actually helped us in our choice from the menu.

This restaurant could have it all. Its in a great location at the water's edge overlooking the marina with tables inside and outside to suit all tastes and all weathers. The food is very good but not exceptional. The prices are competitive but the service is awful - and so, it would seem, think many others. requests go unheeded and... More

Sat outside today hoping to catch a few rays of sunshine (the first this week) we sat & we sat & we sat - I did twice pop inside to try & catch the eye of a member of staff but sadly to no avail. It's a great pity as we have had many beautiful meals at this restaurant !... More

Arrived in Gibraltar today, first pit stop had to be The Waterfront Restaurant for lunch - lovely location over looking the harbour. Great food hubby chose the sea bass I the chicken breast, both meals arrived pipping hot & tasted delicious, just wish the guy sanding his boat had chosen a different day !!!

Went for Mother's Day with the family. Very small portions and awful service. None of us will be going to this restaurant again.

My fiancé and I visited here recently, and had a lovely meal. The service was good and the food was great. We shared a homemade banoffee pie, which was outstanding. This venue is definitely worth a visit.
