“lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

the restaurant itself is well presented, service was ok, food is nice but nothing outstanding. not so well catered for the kids as some places - too many wine glasses on table,etc but in saying that we have returned a few times so it is definately not bad!

The Waterfoot Wine Bar is hugely popular with locals and no wonder. The food is excellent and the staff first-class.

“Rude staff”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Where do I start ! I dined here with a group of friends for a meal and a good nite out. First we where seated in a draughty corner, our meals weren't served they where slid across the table. We where stared at by the staff most of the night which made us v uncomfortable. After our meal we went out to sit at reception it was so cold we sat with coats on! I can safely say we will never be back here! And as for the 10% service charge on your bill what a cheek!

“Excellent party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Came here with the family for a birthday party in the restaurant. Food and service was second to none which was coupled by a great atmosphere. It was a busy Saturday night but we got our own booth which was perfect - right next to the bar and you could see the chefs cooking the meals (open plan kitchen). Cant thank the staff enough.
We will definitely be coming back!!!
