On the last night of our holiday we found this bar down a pedestrianised side street. We sat at one of the outside tables, the waiter came quite quickly and asked us if we were smokers and if not would we like to sit inside....More

Nice place to pop in for a coffee, off the main shopping road in Gibraltar. It was very clean which is always a good sign.

Description
As you know, Gibraltar is steeped in history. The Star Bar (Gibraltar's oldest bar) dates back several hundred years, indeed there is a local story that Christopher Columbus diverted into Gibraltar to enjoy a fillet steak meal at The Star Tavern on his way to discover the Americas. Enjoy your visit and may you return safely again one day with your family & friends. We are famous for our full English breakfast but also serve other wonderful dishes such as the classic Fish & Chips, starting from 8am every day (9am on Sunday). Enjoy our Star Coffee or draught beers; these include Heineken, Old Speckled Hen, Murphys and Strongbow cider. We hope our super Star Bar team made you feel like a star.
