Description: Within easy walking distance of the town centre, Ipswich's most original restaurant, II Punto, is an antique Dutch customs gunboat, moored along Neptune Quay. You can relax in its wonderful atmosphere and its polished brass ambience. From a quick snack for lunch on the upper deck to a romantic dinner on the lower deck, it is the perfect place for an evening on the sea front.

“Great food, and service, as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

Visited Mariners this evening. I dine there three or four times a year, and as always the personal service was unrivalled. I had mentioned in passing it was my mother's birthday, and she was given a cake, and we each got a complimentary glass of dessert wine. The food was 10/10 as usual: wonderful starters, mains and desserts. The portion sizes are perfect - not the enormous platefuls you might get in a pub, but also not too small. The manager was happy to advise me on the best wine to go with the food we had ordered, and tonight that was a fine bottle of Morgon. For me, this is the best restaurant in Ipswich by 'a country mile'.

“Good food, great views”

Had a great meal here, fantastic service and good food in a picturesque setting. Plenty of choice from a good menu and not over priced. A place to go for that special occasion.

“Delightful dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Excellent service from booking a table onwards. A wonderful floating restaurant aboard an old ship. Decor is tasteful with lots of character. Staff could hardly be more helpful, but without being overbearing. Menu is full of delightful gems, with plenty if seafood as you would expect. Food was excellent, starters were full of flavour. Fish was perfectly cooked and the desert heavenly. We will definately be going back. Highly recommended!!

“Lovely food, good wine, great position, shame about the heating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had a very pleasant lunch on Mothers day, great menu and the food could not be faulted. Wine list gave you so much choice and they were happy to advise. Only problem was the calor gas heaters which meant some at our table felt too hot and some cold on their backs, hey ho the meal made up for this.
