We live in Gibraltar and are slowly trying each and every restaurant. I had high hopes for this restaurant as the menu that we checked out beforehand sounded really good. We ordered a starter of Crispy Squid with a Lime and Ginger mayonnaise. The squid...was delicious, fresh, crispy and very nice. The Mayonnaise was tasteless, as in it just tasted of mayonnaise. It came with quite a large side salad. The waiter did not understand us very well (we speak English and some Spanish). My husband wanted a lime and lemonade. But the waiter did not know what lime cordial was and so he ended up with just lemonade. When a female waitress came over, I asked her in Spanish what the name of Lime Cordial was and she said zuma de limon, anyway, the long and the short is the bar did have lime cordial. The main course arrived before they had cleared away the starter plates. As he took my knife and fork that came with the starter I was left with my main course and no knife and fork. When he came back I asked for a knife and fork. He took forever and my husband was about to get up and go and get one when the waiter finally arrived with my knife and fork. My food was Luke warm by then. It was however DELICIOUS, the food was really really tasty. I had MSC King Prawns in a Tarragon and Pernod sauce and it was very very good. My husband had the Dry aged beef lasagne which was also delicious. We were never asked if we wanted more drinks. Our dessert came and they didn’t clear away our dinner plate, we had to eat dessert around our dirty plates. I have to add the restaurant was not busy. There were two other tables with people on. Overall the stunning location of the restaurant the quality of food meant it deserves a 5 start, but I gave it 4 star because the waiters are just not trained properly. I do not blame the waiters, I blame the owners. We will come back and we will bring friends and family back, but I really hope they improve their service as it is sadly letting them down. This appears to be the same for around 90% of restaurants in Gibraltar.More

We booked a table with a special birthday package. The views are absolutely amazing. If you book a table you also get a free ride up on the cable car. The restaurant was very clean and the staff were wonderful. Highly recommend this restaurant

We booked in advance, which gave us a free return cable car ride to the top of The Rock. The service was superb, the views spectacular, the food outstanding, the monkeys a treat and the wine refreshing. Great value for money too. The Galician burger...is fabulous.More

I think this explains it all. Apparently 2*£5 is £13 and the stuff shows no intentions of refunding the £3 when asked abt it

Love this restaurant, the amazing view and the food. We visited on a busy day when a wedding reception was being held in part of the restaurant. This did impact on the service but this was okay as the view was worth it. The monkey’s...are the free entertainment. Would definitely recommend this restaurantMore

This place is fantastic. The atmosphere and the viees are magnificent. We were extremely surprised with the quality and standard of our food. I had the Galician burger which was delicious and my wife had the vegan beetroot risotto. The Bryan choice is excellent. We...both agree it's one of the tastiest meals for a long time. We've decided to go back tomorrow for lunch. One last thing, the service was excellent. We don't have a negative word to say about this little gem.More

We arrived to the top of the rock and found ourselves with 3 hungry kids on our hands and no simple takeaway food. Reluctantly asked for a table and we’re surprised to receive one without a booking. Was expecting to pay through our teeth for...bad food with a view - I could not have been more wrong. This was one of the most delicious meals that we have had as a family. Each one of us ate every last bite. My fussy son asked if he could order another meal he loved his pasta so much. Portions were generous and the vegan menu was superb. We had an edamame rice dish and my husband (who finds it hard to appreciate any one but his mothers’ cooking) said it was the best rice he’s ever eaten and I have to agree. The service was great, the view is amazing and the bill was less than any of the other meals we ate out in Gibraltar (other than Burger King!) Final tip, the souvenirs sold in the shop there are cheaper than the ones in the high street.More

I have to admit, the views here are incredible. Therefore it’s such a shame that the food and service was very mediocre. Restaurant seemed very understaffed, therefore the service was slow and inattentive. Waited 10 minute to be seated with reservation, and they did not...distinguish people with/without reservations. Upon being seated, had to wait a while again before the menu was even brought out. Food was very mediocre - ordered bbq chicken (solid), croque selection (mediocre, fish one was terrible), and mezza platter (they served smashed chickpeas and called it hummus lol). Never thought I would say this, but would really only recommend here for quick snacks/drinks or for Instagram pics.More
