Dissapointed

Over priced food and you would expect to find a better selection if wines and at least a candle on the table, but sadly none

We decided to go out for an early meal last night 09/06/2015 and chose Squires. We arrived at the restaurant just before six and the sign on the door said they would open at 18h00 so we decided to wait as it would not be long. Well we left the Boardwalk at 18h20 and Squires was yet to open. We... More

We had booked for movies and needed to eat somewhere with fast efficient service, we decided to try Squires, the prices are above normal but the service makes up for it!!! We were greeted at the door by a friendly waiter, seated at a lovely positioned table, our food arrived in under 15 minutes despite the restaurant being busy and... More

We had sensational service from the minute we walked in. For a busy night, the food came quickly and was cooked to order. The Saturday night light show also added to the romantic feel to the balcony area for an evening meal. Overall, very well priced for the experience.

Had a meal and the food was really average, taking into consideration the location and the prices. The interior is still tasteful, but a bit of TLC could come in handy. The service was good though.

Went to Squires because hotel confirmed that they were prepared for blackout. I ordered the fried haloumi cheese and enjoyed it thoroughly. As a main course I ordered lamb cutlets with a salad and creamed spinach. This was exactly as expected and I can suggest people to visit Squires Loft.

Excellent food in a nice location, but it could easily be 'upgraded' to a more upmarket restaurant by adding table-cloths etc. The ostrich served with a blackberry compote is the best I have had anywhere.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on the last day of our holiday. Wife had hake and chips after the sole she wanted, which is on the menu, hasn't been in stock for over six months. I had a fillet with mushroom sauce. Both meals were okay but nothing fantastic. We will NOT be going back when we return... More
