Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Cantina Number 6 is decent. The food is good but not outstanding, and the service was a bit slow. Cozy atmosphere, but a bit pricey for what you get. Worth a visit if you're in the area, but not a must.

We fell into this place having left another restaurant because we had to wait nearly an hour for wine. Long story but we were welcomed and taken care of brilliantly here. The food was delicious, wine too, lovely atmosphere and great margaritas! We’ll be back....Thank you.More

Fantastic atmosphere sitting on the balcony overlooking Bray Beach. Superb tapas choice, to die for potato wedges, yummy chicken, succulent tempura prawns and tasty deep fried cauliflower. Our third visit can’t wait for the next.

My friends and I recently dined here for a joint 40th and 50th Birthday and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The food was exceptional, and the service was top-notch. The menu offered a great range of options and specials, and each...dish was a culinary delight. What made our visit even more enjoyable was the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. We had a member in our party who was quite loud, but the staff and fellow diners were incredibly accommodating and understanding. It truly made for a memorable and enjoyable evening for all of us. We look forward to returning on our next trip to AlderneyMore

Was a bit concerned reading previous reviews but we had a really great meal. Food was fresh, great quality and really tasty. It is a little more expensive than expected but you get what you pay for. Highly recommend the squid and cauliflower dishes.More

Not our best experience. The restaurant is clean enough but tired and scruffy which does not give confidence about the kitchen. Servers are "smiley" and efficient but they can only bring the food that comes out of the kitchen and for us, this is where...change needs to happen. Styled as a "Tapas Restaurant", we found our "tapas" dishes to be either over cooked or as in the case of the 'spicy chicken', bland, dull and tasteless (obviously catering breaded chicken goujons by another name}. When we mentioned our disappointment items were deleted from our bill without demur but with the explanation that they ...."dont serve 'Spanish Tapas' as such but more 'small plates' of 'tapas style' food"..... Sorry Cantina Number 6 - either you are a "Tapas Restaurant" or you are not and "small plates" is not an acceptable excuse for serving poor quality food!More

Hi there. A few points to address here. ‘Spicy chicken’ - we serve Jerk Chicken, Piri Chicken and Rachel’s Southern Fried Chicken. Jerk is spicy but zesty, piri is hot and tangy and southern fried is not spicy at all but seasoned. So it’s unclear...More

Sadly disappointing and very expensive for what it is. The corn on the cob was watery and tasteless and had clearly just been thawed out. You got two extremely small crab cakes for £10. Not what we were expecting. Try some other places the standard...of the food on the island is generally good.More

We just walked in on spec on our first night on Alderney. (It's a good idea to book on small islands like Alderney and Sark - but we got away with it.) Our original plan was not to eat after a day travelling and start...in the morning. But we got a bit peckish and wandered about. We found this at random (or, at the harbour). We make no claim to be tapas experts (couple of visits to Spain / Canaries) but this was really good. A quick snack turned into 6 tapas between the pair of us. Very tasty and will go back again next time on Alderney.More

Spanish food isn't really my thing but having seen the reviews I though I'd give it a go. Very pleasantly surprised, great atmosphere, friendly staff, but not too friendly and the food was great. You can really tell the staff enjoy their jobs.
