My daughter and I booked a table for 5pm. We arrived to find the door locked, no pre dinner drinks or opportunity to read pares etc. nothing provided, just a locked door. When we ordered, food took 25 minutes to arrive, fizzy drinks were watered down. Food was ok, but we had to rush as had a meeting to attend.... More

Owner was quick to share that the place was once the Shetland Hotel. I had a table by the window which made it interesting to people-watch. Along with a very satisfactory meal this is one of the places I go to have my own me-time.

I hadn't set foot inside the Shetland Hotel in a number of years, but the Waterfront has definitely breathed new life into the place. The decor is bright but still tasteful, although the downside is that it serves to make the rest of the building look tired and dated. We'd come to the Waterfront for my mam's birthday meal. I...

Not had a bad meal here yet, although, the pepper sauce I had this time was not its best. Seemed very dark and not nice tasted, a bit harsh on the troat- I love pepper sauce!! Hopefully next time I'm there, the sauce will be back to its best. I will also be avoiding the wedges, I felt they were... More

The restaurant has been refurbished and has a nice atmosphere with a bar area to sit whilst you are waiting to be seated. Staff are attentive and the waiting time minimal. Food was reasonably priced though it was only when I checked my bill later that I realised I had been charged for an extra @ £2.50 that I hadn't... More

Ate here with some colleagues on a week night. Wasn't too busy but we were asked if we has reserved a table. Plenty of choice as well as daily specials. Food very reasonable and very nice, would go back again.

We ate here for lunch today and found the experience very good with excellent well cooked food , the lamb steak was brilliant as was my dish of a tuna mayo jacket potato , portion sizes were more than enough. The service was friendly efficient and slight alterations to meals were no problem.

The ambiance is not that great! But food is that all matters to me. I wouldn't prefer to sit by the windows coz the windows aren't clean or tidied. Food is good for the money. Try some local ale. Not sure if they stock enough. Overall it's worth the money you pay. I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights... More

Service isn't the best, some of the foreign waiters have had trouble understanding menu choices from myself and friends, something that really shouldn't be happening when they work there and should know the menu. Food is good, would be nice if they changed the menu every now and then as I have avoided going there for a long time because... More

Staff here give very inattentive service - they really don't care about the customers who are paying their wages. After being told that they serve cocktails, we were then informed that they didn't. The Bombay gin we requested was too much - only Gordons available (but staff haven't a clue what is available, so say that you are going to... More
