“Sundowner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I have eaten many times at the Waterfront. The service can be a bit hit and miss, and you will sometimes find someof the party's meals served a long way ahead of the others (even in small groups). The food is always good, and the sunsets are beautiful. If you want a good table (i.e. next to the water) you need to get there early on busy nights.

Lovely seafood lunch, enjoyed a super view over the bay. Service a bit slow but food was good when we got it.

“Best terrace for sundowners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The best terrace in Peninsula with a stunning sunset. Contrary to what most other reviewers write, I found the service absolutely friendly and efficient. It is an upmarket place, aimed at tourists, expats and wealthy locals, just as everything in the Slipway environment. To be on safe side for food, stay with the local-inspired fare : the beer-battered calamari with sesame seed were an absolute highlight for me.
