My partner and I visited Quayside Plaza one Friday evening for dinner. We booked ahead of time but were surprised when we arrived to see there were only three tables being used. We were seated and our drinks order taken. After ten minutes of looking through the small menu, the waitress came to take our order; smoked salmon and ratatouille... More

We have visited a number of times for lunch, snacks/coffee and dinner. Every time we have been very pleased with both the friendly, efficient and prompt service. The food served has been very, very good both in quality, presentation and flavour. Prices are reasonable. Highly recommended!

This cafe/restaurant is the one that all the museums on South Quay send their visitors too if they ask for eating places. I yet to have someone come back and moan about it.

Ok, so sometimes you may think that olives and bread with garlic butter are not part of a true English breakfast, but to be honest they should be!. Fantastic sausages really nice food and so very accommodating. Been a few times now and always look forward to going back. Places like this make you feel so lucky to be local.... More

Came here on spec for a lunch with my partner and her daughters. The staff were very friendly and very accommodating ( i didn't want ginger and lemon sauce with my sole, and they offered a garlic dressing instead). Very pleasant atmosphere, and the food when it arrived was absolutely delicious. I am not one for roasted vegetables, but they... More

We visited Quayside Plaza while on a day trip to Great Yarmouth as part of a week long birthday celebration for my girlfriend. We did not book but I would recommend that you do as it got very busy despite it being a Thursday lunch time - a testament to the quality food they serve. We both had the Sea... More
