A nice meal

Had a nice meal here. Starters were especially tasty - fish cakes. Food was good when it arrived although took about 40 mins. This seemed a long time when the restaurant was fairly quiet. Staff were pleasant.

There is no question that the food is good and the value for money is reasonable at this restaurant. Things could be improved. The main problem is that the staff like to remain in the air-conditioned restaurant. I usually go to the bar and place my order wait for the food to arrive and then pay at the bar when... More

Whilst I understand, English speakers are hard to find in the service industry in Gibraltar, there is no excuse for the poor level of service offered by waterfront and its Manager and staff. I booked a table on Tuesday for 13 people for my mums 65th, last night Saturday specially requested inside or the conservatory, was told no problem. Really... More

Can not complain about the food it was excellent, my husband and I both had the fillet steak from the bbq and it was spot on, my eldest son had the curry which he loved and my youngest ate from the children's menu which had a really good selection. The food was presented beautifully and we thought we might visit... More

Really lovely food but ridiculously slow service. Almost empty restaurant and the service was incredibly slow. Staff seemed to busy chatting. Not good for kids. Over charged on bill which took forever to sort out. Would of come again for the food but by the end of the meal the kids were so bored and fed up of waiting we've... More

Been here several times. Views are pleasant, and it's relatively sheltered from the calamity of the town centre, but it is mainly staffed by disinterested teenage girls who forget your order.

Really nice food here at a reasonably cost. We had 2 drinks each and a main meal for £24. Food was good quality and fresh. The restaurant was clean and modern and had an upmarket feel to it (compared to other places in Gibraltar). It's a little difficult to find as signs saying "residents only" put you off going where...
