Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

One of the best if not the best place to eat in Gibraltar, the food and service were outstanding and great value for money.

“Superb! and helpful too....”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Again we selected this restaurant based on trip advosr reviews. We called from the UK ahead of our visit as comments were to book ahead as it gets busy. I rang and left a message, the manager called us back that evenign to confirm our booking. When we arrived at the restaurant and was seated, he made a point o fcoming over to say hello. I cannot rate the food more highly, everything was delicious...the hardest thing was actually making the choice of what to eat. I can see why this has been rated so highly. We will definately visit again....Thank you!

“Excellent! The GREAT Gatsby”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We read trip advisor and this was the number one restaurant in gib.

On visiting to book, we thought we may have the wrong place as from the outside it didn't look much. However, when we arrived that evening we were greeted as old friends, the staff were great and couldn't do enough for us.

The food was immaculately presented yet good portions with vegetables..wow! We did order starters but received two mini dishes first complementary! We were so full but stopped long enough to have pudding too purely because the food was good enough. The food was really really good, the best we have had in gib and some of the best food we have had for a long time.

We all agreed we wish we had found this place on our first night and not our last. We had dined on our ship (sunborn) which was "supposed" to be five star... Well they need to come to this restaurant and see how it's done.

Excellent service, excellent food, great place!

“Really poor experience, won't be in a rush to go back”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

I rarely return food in a restaurant but had to when we went to Gasby's for Mother's Day Dinner. The set menu they had was very limited and after finally choosing a dish, we had to instantly return it and ask for another dish.

The dish we chose was advertised as Vermicelli with prawns and garlic and white wine sauce. Mine looked like pot noodles and after one bite, my apetite was gone. They were overcooked so would turn into mash instantly in my mouth and all you could taste was chilies. No garlic, no white wine. It seemed like they were reheated leftovers from lunch.

We then had tempura prawns with egg fried rice and sweet and sour sauce. The rice and sauce tasted and looked exactly like the microwave meals from Morrisons.

Service was also not amazing and staff was not very apologetic about the horrible food. They actually told us Oh, but we have had loads of people order this dish and like it.

Well, you eat it then.

I will not be in a rush to return.

“Food wasn't nice and overcharged”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Went as part of a large party before Christmas - food was average and starter (soup) was off (although the waiter was very helpful and brought a different selection of starters to replace it). At the end of the night there was an error with the bill and we realised a few more bottles of wine had been added which was an error. Unfortunately I wouldn't go back to this restaurant.
