Have eaten at this restaurant multiple times now, in the summer it is awesome to sit out on the prom, and yesterday sat indoors as too cold outside. Yesterday was Steak Night and so the Fillet Steak was £14.95 and it was fantastic. Previously I have had the Sea Bass and the Sous Vide Chicken, both lovely. Yes as other... More

Good location. Tried the fish cakes nicely cooked but not very fishy very 'spuddy' then enjoyed the chicken which was succulent and flavoursome. Other members of the party enjoyed pork, tagliatelle and a fish dish. House red is a bit rough. Waiting staff never offered us dessert so asked for the bill and departed. Brightly lit. Kahsis all good. Friendly... More

Visited for lunch - didn't get any. Had a coffee and ordered - waited 40mins and still no service. We cancelled the meal and left - having to pay for the coffee and abysmal service. Clearly too busy and greedy for the number of staff and chefs - But just keep packing them in - well NO - Sorry, the... More

The location, next to the marina, is nice, one of the rare clean neighbourhoods in Gibraltar. Service is friendly but very slow, food is good.

Dining out is an experience. It's a combination of food, drink, location, service, atmosphere and value for money. When you try virtually all the 'restaurants' in Gibraltar and give equal balance to each of the above values you will find that given the choice you will prefer the Waterfront above all others. The drinks menu (especially as it's one of... More

Queens way Quay is a modern development away from the hustle of the matina. There are several restaurants along the quayside, right beside the small marina and The Waterfront is one of the best. A good, varied menu, reasonable prices,considering the very upmarket area and covered, outside seating for the hotter days make this a wonderful location for a lazy... More

Waterfront with outdoor seating was a wonderful quiet spot to sit, relax, admire the water. Much preferable to the busy, trendy, over crowded Ocean Village. We came across this place while doing self-service laundry just next door.

The food here was thoroughly delicious and the portions were very generous, the Swordfish steak was a good size and the Thai Prawn curry was very spicy with generous sized prawns. We found the staff to vet very friendly and courteous, and we felt free to dine at our pace. The view of the waterfront is hard to beat, especially... More

We thought it would be great to have afternoon tea on the marina...... Mmmmmmm We ordered what we thought was quite a simple snack...... We had a larger as it was a beautiful afternoon in the sun at the marina. Eventually when the afternoon tea arrived, the scones were stale, and the cream was squirty cream. There were 4 sandwiches.....one... More
