I rang to book ahead for my birthday and when we arrived at the Waterfront Bar, I was pleased to see that we had been reserved a table with a view. Lovely spot (although we did get a little lost, found it after 10 minutes)...More

Good location and views, lovely staff, nice food. My mother really enjoyed the venison carpaccio, but it needed more toast.

We have known the Waterfront for several years, and love it! The view from the raised deck over the ocean is fabulous and the perfect spot for a chilled sundowner. The bar food is excellent and the “fine dining” restaurant even better. Thoroughly recommend!
