Convenient location in town centre where shops bars and restaurants spin off from. Several Bars and Restaurants actually in the square. It just seemed a little grubby to me. Much litter and seagul droppings smothering the restaurant umbrellas and some chairs. Bins over flowing. I think part of the problem is fast food outlets in the square and some restaurant locations not cleaning very well in their location. Its a convenient and historic point to meet or wander to and from and has live entertainment with a degree of regularity. So a nice location, let down by cleanliness

Lively area with plenty of places to eat and drink even crepe and ice cream vendors. Here is where Roy's Cod Plaice can be found for the best fish and chips we have ever tasted. Even the tuna salad was really nice. There are interesting shops underneath the bastion through an arch. 2 old fashioned red telephone boxes and a post box are situated at one end. Nearby taxis wait to take tourists on a tour on the rock and/or 360 around the city.

Large square with lots of dining options. We visited out of season and so some restaurants closed early.

However, still plenty of choice and life going on.

Clean and free public toilets in the corner of the square which is good to know.

We saw some entertainment space being set up for the upcoming Valentine's day. The square seems to be a centre for gatherings ( apparently used to be the place for public hanging a few centuries ago!

It's probably the main square to eat and drink, so that means it's a bit more expensive than other places further away. Most of them offer fish and chips and other traditional english meals. If you never tried british food before, it's a good opportunity to experience some of the most boring and tasteless dishes ever made.

This large square has many shops,bars and restaurants and so attracts many people and it can become very busy at times,especially at weekends and if a cruise ship is in Port. Everything from Costa Coffee,KFC,two fish and chip shops,Pasty shop,English pub and several bars/restaurants.
There is also a taxi rank at the High street end.
There for Christmas so lots of decorations and a tree.

Said to be the larger of the two squares in the main town centre of Gibraltar, on visiting it, in parts it’s unclear where it ends and the adjoin streets begin with the overlap of stores and restaurants spilling over beyond what could be viewed as its core. A mishmash of the historic, just plain old and more recent developments as well as addition that have expanded the area. The square is both spectacular and disappointing in equal measure.

The view and ambience are everything that is positive about this place. You are in little doubt of the history and the sense of the importance both culturally and communally the square still possess on the peninsula but the more recent developments over- looking it and the unsympathetic fast food and other convenience shops takes it now at least a notch.

Recommend for the historical quick stop but not for the modern excesses that have encroached.

Visited this fantastic restaurant called Little Rock at Casemates Square several times during my recent trip to Gibralter. I recommend the steak or Fajitas as these are the best. Great service and reasonable prices compared to those in Ocean Village.

This is the main square, the first one we reached after passing through the city gate. It is open and airy, with lovely flowers and trees and is surrounded by many restaurants. Nice to sit outside, have a drink or something to eat, and people watch.

Always a good place to meet and pass time.
Stopped for a quick lunch at The Gibraltar Bakery, which offers a range of pasties/cakes and drinks.
Very good pasties! Being from the South-West of England, can confirm they are good.
Staff friendly, coffee good!
Find them opposite the taxi area in the square.

This lovely Italian restaurant is in the square. It is housed within the old barracks with the original walls. Apparently great for morning coffee and cake. We went for evening dinner. The decor was clean and fresh with attractive lighting and tables. The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. The food was very good. Altogether a very nice evening
