“Nice Enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013 via mobile

I can't say the meal we had was poor, it was nice enough but having ate a several restaurants on the marina this one didn't stand out.

The staff were all very nice and very attentive, there was a slight discrepancy in the bill and they corrected this without fuss.

I wouldn't say I'll never return but with so many options it wouldn't be in a rush.

“Not the best”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

We had dinner here and the service/food was really poor
Prices are average and the seating area feels dated
Not worth trying as there are lots of better eating places in the marina area

“excellent family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

This is a brilliant restaurant with very reasonable prices, a large choice of dishes and a friendly atmosphere good for families. We were so impressed with Gavea we came back within our first week to eat there again. Friendly staff and lovely food. would highly recommend and would defiantly go back again.

“Avoid avoid avoid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013

Do yourself a favour and avoid this place like the plague. The staff are rude and sourfaced. The food is awful. My son and I got chicken piri piri which was dry, swimming in oil and not very warm. My husband had fish which was also swimming in oil. Watch out ordering drinks, if you don't ask for specific size etc they will bring you the mist expensive of everything. Needless to say we won't be back. Do yourself a favour and go elsewhere in the marina

“Two good meals here by the marina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

Another busy restaurant by the marina and a good example of excellent service under pressure. We had two lovely meals here. The chicken piri piri is very nice. It was simple and unfussy and very tasty! Friendly staff welcome you and offer an excellent service even when it is really busy.
Tasty nibbles of olives and carrots. Well done to all staff!!
