Great food, lovely location

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.

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.

After getting married in Gibraltar we were looking for an afternoon 'drinks venue' before heading back to Spain for our evening reception. Planning this from the U.K in a venue that we have never been in was a little daunting. However we had regular correspondence by email and telephone and the staff couldn't do enough to help. Our requests for... More

Before visiting the Waterfront, my friends and I had looked at an online menu, just to be sure that our gluten/lactose free friend and myself (vegetarian) had options. On the menu I found, there weren't many options, but I found a curry I could settle for. However, when we actually arrived at the restaurant and were given menus, the curries... More

Brilliant food, lovley portion!! good menu, lots of differnt things. could of done with a good clean, a lot of dust in places. Some of the painting needs tidying up. Its a shame that the toilet pipe from upstairs flat could not be covered up. not the best thing to notice half way in to eating!!
