Description: At The Waterfront, we are owner-operators who cook the majority of food ourselves, to order, using quality fresh ingredients wherever possible. We have a small dining area which can get very busy during summer evenings, hence we can't take large groups or accept reservations during this time.We are open from 5:30-9 each evening with the exception of Tuesdays & Wednesdays when we are closed. We are fully licensed & accept UK chip & pin credit & debit cards. We look forward to welcoming you.

“Delicious dinner!”

We have eaten at The Waterfront on many occasions and have never been disappointed and this visit was no exception! You can expect great food at a reasonable price. Service is always friendly and efficient. I can thoroughly recommend this lovely little restaurant!

“Lovely little bistro.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

The Waterfront bistro was recommended to us by a local during our visit to the Isle of Bute. My partner is a fussy eater and looked at the menu wall a little bewildered but we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and deserts. The staff were very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us (to be fair this seemed to be the attitude of all the people we met on the island). A very nice atmosphere. All in all the waterfront comes highly recommended by us.

“Superb Quality and Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by the B&B I stayed at. I was not disappointed. I lived that the menu is on signs hanging on the wall. The choice was excellent for the size of the establishment.
I went for chicken stuffed with haggis. It was beautiful. The portion size was spot on and I am a good eater. The dessert if mango cheesecake was also very well presented and tasted heavenly.
The owners were very friendly and attentive. Try it. You will not be disappointed.
