“Great Meal and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

We are first time visitors to Ipswich so looked up places to eat using Tripadvisor we were not disappointed with the Waterfront. We had a lovely meal and the service was great. We ordered from the set menu and were really impressed with the quality of the food. We thought the portions might be small as the prices were so reasonable but we were full and very happy with our two course set menu.

“Good food at a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Had selected this restaurant based on TA reviews as one of two to visit in Ipswich. Not being able to find The Townhouse, we went to The Waterfront and were not disappoined. The downstairs drinking area was busy and quite noisy and the upstairs dining area was quite full and had a good buzz about it. We were efficiently seated and served drinks. Apparently the specials menu was not available and I never understood the reason for this, so we chose from the a la carte menu. The food was very palatable and the french onion soup was truly excellent and my wife enjoyed her scallops with smoked duck.
The mains did not disappoint and the ribeye steak was succulent whilst the salmon fillet was well cooked and served with a good selection of vegetables. No room for dessert, just an excellent expresso.
In summary, good food, good service at a great location at a good price.

“Very good indeed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Nice location, knowledgeable staff, delicious food... Scallop starter was good but could have been better if cooked slightly less...I had beef Wellington for mains. OMG incredible the best beef Wellington I have ever had. The fillet so tender you did not need a knife, perfect puffed pastry.Wife had steak and that was very good too...

Overall; prices are slightly high but can't really say was an expensive meal. Wine could be cheaper. The atmosphere is good but perhaps a bit too noisy due to the bare walls. Try and sit upstairs on the corner as this is probably the best spot.
