Treat to this wonderful experience for my birthday From the minute they park your car for you to the minute you leave there is nothing that is too much for them. Excellent quality, absolutely first rate service in every way. Thank you waterside.

Enjoyed a birthday lunch with friends on a lovely sunny day. What a superb venue overlooking the river! Expert attentive service and wonderful food. A delightful experience which could not be faulted.

Went for a treat for our wedding anniversary, and a treat indeed it was. The food (we stuck to the set lunch) was as good as I've ever had in the UK, the service was impeccable, polite, friendly, the setting delightful. I wanted to see if my palate was sophisticated enough to tell what you get for 3* and I... More

Bray is a beautiful little village with nothing it seems but Michelin starred restaurants. The setting of the Waterside is beautiful and we loved our room overlooking the river. Service was impeccable from all the staff and the food was absolutely of the standard you'd expect for the reputation, with great pairing wines. The pastries at breakfast were excellent but... More

Great food, great seating, and good drinks menu. Food was great, service was fantastic. Fast and efficient, for a rather busy evening. Would highly recommend

The food was exceptional, the service was impeccable... It is rare to walk out of a restaurant without a single complaint but this is such a rarity. I saw one review saying the service was "pushy". I would have to disagree. No raised eyebrows because we chose a cheap bottle of wine, nor that we didn't choose the degustation menu.... More

The waterside really has a great ambience which sets you up for one of the dining experiences of your life. We opted for the tasting menu and wine flight. Beautifully presented dishes that were very nicely paired with their wines. Great service all the way through. Cheap it's not but memorable it certainly was

It really does live up to its reputation - a wonderful location, service beyond compare and the tastiest food I've ever had in my life. Small portions that fill you up and every morsel is delicious. Try the set price lunch menu but beware the drinks prices. If you want to celebrate or just feel special this is the place... More

Service is pushy, and very unrelaxed. Take it easy with the filling of the cups and the constant observation. The food is of course fine, but at 400 pounds a couple, what you get is simply not sufficient.
