The food was great and good size portions and there is also lots to choose from on the menu. The food is well priced and we even went on a 2for1 deal on a Tuesday without knowing which made it even better! good staff and the view of the quay is lovely.

Nice meal but nothing really special. We had a table by the window which seemed nice but I could feel the cold off the window. The waiter, although very pleasant, was overly regimented (I have been served by him before). Reasonable value for money.

As other reviewers have pointed out, beware of being suckered in by the great views from the tables by the windows, as even January's watery sun made it unbearably hot. To be fair, we were warned about this by the floor manager. The food was tasty and well presented and the waiting staff were courteous and efficient. I had the... More

The waitress took our drinks order of which mine was a mineral water with a slice of lemon and no ice. A different waitress brought our drinks... More

I visited banana wharf for lunch with the family. We had no problem getting a table but I would imagine it gets very busy in peak times. I would suggest on a sunny day do not be tempted to sit next to the window even though the view is spectacular and very inviting, the windows act as a magnifying glass... More

Booked a table for a family of five for Christmas Eve lunch. Friendly welcoming staff, fantastic food and beautiful view. Would highly recommend and will certainly be going again. By far the best meal we have had out in a long time.

Visited last week with some friends & I must say the food was lovely. The waitress "Ella" was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble & she was very accommodating & all with a smile. Would definitely recommend & we will return.
