I just received my first delivery from the quayside plaza as have really missed being able to meet up with friends and eat there due to Covid etc and was curious to see the restaurant listed in Uber eats. I am taken aback by how gorgeous the food is on my table and so beautifully packaged too with organic fresh bread still warm! I cannot rate the food highly enough and it’s just as good as I remember it dining in the restaurant. What a treat! Five stars

Been meaning to try here for ages and finally found ourselves in the vicinity and feeling hungry. Early Saturday night out of season and we were able to get a seat. Waitress was a bit dizzy but we got what we asked for & that was: Bread, garlic butter & olives arrived at the table, bread was still warm. Jo had halloumi on a bed of something plus salad & I had sautéed squid with salad, both were good servings and well presented. Our mains came up, Jo’s was a seafood linguine, again vast portions & she wasn’t able to clear it all but tried hard. I had Portuguese style steak, and what a steak it was, asked for it to be cooked as the chef would recommend it and it was fabulous, 40-50mm thick and of a good size, medium rare, covered with parma, plus an egg on top, sauté pots & salad. The steak was to die for, the flavour was out of this world, unfortunately it got the better of me and I just couldn’t finish it off. We also had a couple of beers and coffees, service was great and the evening was pleasant.

We had a meal here with family for our wedding and everybody was really impressed with how delicious the food was. We hired the restaurant exclusively and the staff and owner were really helpful and friendly throughout all the organising and during the meal. The restaurant has a relaxed and cosy feel to it and wonderful variety of food.

Recommended by a number of people. Love little place. Comfortable and pleasant ambiance. Service excellent from young lady. Delicious olives and bread arrived followed by starter of Clams. They were really nice, very garlicky, nice and hot. Good, but have had better. Our main courses were wrong on a few levels. The baby squid with chorizo: squid was tender but the chorizo appeared/tasted to be a pre packed supermarket type; oily and greasy. The rice became sodden with the greasy juices which then become almost inedible. The accompanying salad was not appropriate. Shavings of beef with pineapple and grapes; no no no! Beef was quite chunky, defo not shavings. Pineapple does not work, grapes just about acceptable. Sauce far too sweet. Beef tasteless. Rice tasted like microwaved packet stuff and salad pointless. We are one half Spanish and both having lived on Mediterranean coast, this food is wrongly advertised as Mediterranean. Saddens me to rate this so low. Maybe other dishes will be more palatable and more appropriately Mediterranean.

Myself, my husband and our ten-year old daughter ate at the Quayside Plaza last night after a short internet search, during a one-night break in Great Yarmouth. We were debating whether to eat in this restaurant or our hotel restaurant which looked grand but bland, and I’m so glad we chose to come here! In my opinion it’s a little oasis of Mediterranean paradise! The place is full of charm and character. I felt like I’d been transported to Portugal or Spain, and it brought back lovely memories of past holidays in those countries. The one waitress on duty was attentive, friendly and helpful. And the food was delicious! The arrival of warm bread, with garlic butter and olives was a lovely surprise, and very tasty. I ordered the seafood salad, while my husband had the guacamole burger and chips, and my daughter had the chicken in citrus sauce, which came with potatoes and salad. All three choices were very flavoursome, freshly prepared, plentiful and well presented. We each had dessert, which again was delicious. If you prefer traditional English grub, then this perhaps isn’t the place for you, but if you want to feel like you’ve been transported to a charming family-run restaurant in a sunny Mediterranean country, serving delicious, freshly prepared food, then I can’t recommend it highly enough! As it’s pretty much impossible to travel abroad at the moment, this is perhaps the next best thing, and we will definitely come here again on our next visit to Yarmouth!

Do not order Quayside Plaza with just eat, my meal was absolutely horrendous. I ordered dinner with just eat. I have ordered a delivery from here last year and it wasnt great. But i thought id try again so ordered my meal with just eat and ehen i got a knock on the door their was a young boy on a bicycle using a deliveroo bag. my starter was the beetroot and goats cheese and the beetroot soaked the box but plated it up and it was cold but it was ok. Then i opened the second bag with the mains two chicken stroganoff. Well it was all in the bag it was an absolute mess. I plated them up amd there was no sauce because it was in the bag and it was stone cold and i am not being dramatic it was freezing. So i rang Quayside Plaza and they said take it up with Justeat.. i tried ringing number, spoke to someone on live chat and sent them an email with pictures and they send me an email giving me £5.00 off my next meal. Its an absolute joke. We had one mouthfull and chucked everything in the bin. Waste of money

Hello Lauren, firstly we would like to apologise for your disappointing experience while using our delivery service provided via JustEat. I can assure you all our food is freshly made prior the order and we’ll not pack the food until the driver (provided by JustEat) is at restaurant, therefore the food is always piping hot when driver receives our delivery. Who and what transport is driver using is out of my hand and I am very sorry if your food came out of boxes into the bags. It was an accident and we apologise for it. We did spoke to you over the phone and as it seemed that this is the driver’s faults as mishandled the bags, than we directed you to complain to JustEat. I’ll talk to them to find out, how they handled the complain too. My understanding of JustEat complaints was that they refund all amount and if they believe it was our fault then they take refund from our income. I apologise once again and hopefully we can resolve this complaint in upcoming days.

We had an unforgettable experience at this lovely restaurant filled with character. My son asked for a special request - a plate of mussels and the restaurant provided it - one of the tastiest dishes he has eaten. All the dishes were excellent and cooked to perfection. The team were friendly, helpful and took time to speak to the diners. It was a special evening out where many memories were made.

Had my best meal so far in Great Yarmouth here today. Quirky and interesting surroundings through a shop. The food is top notch -Portuguese/Mediterranean. I had a starter of Baby Squid spiced salad and Seafood Linguine washed down with Sagres. Excellent presentation also. The complimentary hot hot bread with garlic butter and olives were great in addition. Desserts/cakes looked very tasty but just too full to eat any more!

The food was absolutely wonderful. The spicy bruschetta starter was very tasty. The three main courses, steak, surf and turf burger and steak with grapes and pineapple was cooked to perfection. The food was hot and the server was very attentive and helpful. Would certainly recommend.

The last time I visited a few months ago I meant to leave a review but forgot, having been here again very recently I felt I must do it and highlight the delicious food we experienced again. On the last visit I had the cod main and my partner had the Portuguese steak, both were excellent. This time we both had the steak and it was so good, cutting it was like a knife through butter, melted in the mouth and a decent portion size. Cooked to my liking, full of flavour and absolutely fantastic value for money, highly recommend. Dessert was also very tasty and good value. The only negative was that we were sat in the small room at the front on what is really patio style furniture, just not as comfortable as it could be, the main restaurant is much better. Having said that I can't wait to go back, this has become a firm favourite in Great Yarmouth again. Give it a go!

Excellent! We again returned for our eighth time! Staff were super, attentive, friendly and professional. Amazing olives. Food was delicious: Piri Piri prawns, beef shavings with pineapple, mackerel, baby squid with chorizo and mushroom linguine as well as super deserts. The house wine is really excellent! We can’t wait to go back again! Very highly recommended!

The food (mostly seafood for us) was hot and filling which was well received. Nice atmosphere on a rainy evening in Great Yarmouth. There are pieces of art including mirrors set in frames made out of driftwood to purchase. Would go back again if in the area.

I expected more for somewhere that is rated so highly and also for the price. The evening started off great with nice bread and butter, however that was the highlight. We ordered clams and the smoked salmon and prawns for starters. The clams were fine but the prawns were extremely dry. It tasted like cooked prawns that had been re frozen. For mains we had the sea bass and the spaghetti. The sea bass was cooked well but the potatoes did not have much flavour and the vegetables were too salty, and it also seemed like the dish was sprinkled with sea salt over everything which made random bites extra salty. The spaghetti was good except for the would chilli should be written in bold as I only ate half but my mouth was on fire. There were at least 2 small spicy chillies in the dish, and again had prawns that were really dry. It could be that my expectations were too high, but considering all the good reviews I expected more.

We had our anniversary dinner last night before lockdown which starts today. The seafood specialties and meat specialties were orgasmic. The coconut creme caramel was soft and yummy but not sickly. Go for the baby squid and mix it with their garlic butter - perfection. We had a great time last night. Hip Mediterranean ambience too.
