“Get to see the Sun set into the Ocean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

The Water Front Slip Way is located in a good neighborhood. There is a spectacular view of the sun setting, it almost looks like the sun is dropping into the ocean. The waiters seem to be many but most of the time they seem to be standing instead of serving their clients. It took me almost 30 minutes from the time I was seated with my menu to the time the supervisor came to ask if I was attended to. The food is well prepared and served.

“Excellent Setting and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

The restaurant is situated in an excellent setting, and truly lives up to its name. We found the service and food very good - and the sunset is spectacular.

“Magic place to watch the sun go down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

I have been here many times over the years. Great place to come in the evening to relax and watch the sun go down. Food is simple and good and great value for money. Recommend the Tuna steak or roast chicken.

“Great for sundowners; food hit-and-miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

I have visited the Waterfront over a dozen times in the last 3-4 months. It is a great location (at the Slipway on the Peninsular) and fabulous for sundowners (sunset views over the ocean), but somehow it just doesn't seem to be living up to its potential...

Food is hit-and-miss... I have had super meals at the Waterfront, and I have had terrible meals at the waterfront (my father was unfortunate enough to munch a very-rotten giant prawn last week which left him vomiting in the toilet).

Service is either sparkling or non-existent.

Although I have given an 'Average' review, I will be going back to the Waterfront - although I will probably stick to drinks, not food.

“Great lobster!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2013

It has been years since I had a real fresh lobster from the Indian ocean. This one was grilled and really super. Tender, not dry, full of flavour. The starters and side dishes were ok but the lobster really stood out!
