The seating is arranged on 2 levels which is a good way to separate tables and the ambience is good sparkling windows and nice seating. But the real attraction must be the food...particularly the seafood! We both had...

We bought an Itison voucher for a 2 night break and it was excellent value for money. We booked late which is maybe why we were allocated a family room. It was a decent size with large flat screen tv, as well as small TVs at the end of the bunks which kids would love. The bathroom could maybe do...

Another great 2 night stay at this lovely Hotel. I phoned The Waterfront direct and we were able to get the great 'Itison' deal, which delighted us. Room spotlessly clean and as always lovely and warm. Food fabulous and served by friendly, helpful staff. Amazing value and we will certainly return.

Back for the second time last weekend. Terrific value. The room we stayed in was lovely, the bed was nice and big, the place was spotless clean, but the best of all is the restaurant. Loads of choice, especially if your after sea food, and ample portions. The service is second to none and all of the staff are friendly...

Stayed here after buying a itison voucher. What a wee gem this place is! We were initially placed in a twin room which staff rectified quickly, we were moved to a double style studio apartment. It was modern and clean with WiFi throughout. The beds were so comfortable, the rooms were warm and the shower was great. I loved the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Described as "One of the treasures of the East Neuk," The Waterfront was proudly opened in May 2003, hosting a 55 seat a’ la carte restaurant. Personally run, The Waterfront has Anstruther’s finest location situated just a few steps from Anstruther’s harbour and marina with views over the Firth of Forth. During the warmer months we boast al fresco dining to the front and a mature courtyard for relaxing to the rear. We aim to cater for all tastes. Varied Seafood selections, chef’s specials, children’s menu, delicious coffee and cakes. The Waterfront seafood selection is surely there to impress boasting freshly delivered fish from local markets including oriental scallops, citrus salmon, stuffed sea bass, steamed mussels and a true Scottish favourite that has stood the test of time, good old Fish and Chips. ... more   less
