I didn’t take my camera with me when we visited this restaurant with friends, and for this I am so sorry. I missed a spectacular sunset and wasn’t able to capture the amazing views from this great place.
Well on to the important details. The food and service.
Taking the lift up to the 8th floor you step out and turn the corner and are greeted by friendly staff, who sit you (we were very lucky and got a table right next to the window) and take a drinks order. The restaurant occupies the same floor as the pool and this just makes for the most awesome background. We ordered starters and main course. I didn’t get look at the desserts menu, mostly because my first two courses were so big that I would have burst had I tried to cram in any more food.
There is a great selection of fish on the menu. I had the Tuna Steak with Thai noodles. It was phenomenal. We all enjoyed our starters and main courses. One of our friends had a chicken dish and I have to say that the presentation of all the dishes was really lovely.
The service here is beyond great. We felt very much like valued customers and everything that we could have wanted or asked for was catered for. This is a great place to visit for a special evening, such a birthday or anniversary, although the restaurant is very open (the huge windows offering amazing views will have that effect!) you do feel as though you are in your own little bubble as the tables are nicely spaced across the room.
We shall be visiting again very soon!
I have uploaded some pictures taken with my camera phone of some of our dishes. I have to say this restaurant is going straight into my top five places to eat in Gibraltar!
To eat here I would advise booking in advance, I am sure that walk ins are welcome, but given that it is a busy hotel I would ring ahead to avoid disappointment!
