About The Waterfront
Welcome to the Waterfront Ayr!
The Waterfront Restaurant-Bar-Terrace is a stylish, stunning venue overlooking the River Ayr.
Offering a wide range of food and drinks in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
Great setting. Excellent menu choice and delicious meals. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
The staff were nice and helpful but three order incorrect. Roast beef came in pink instead of brown despite being asked for preference by staff. Asked for two chocolate ice cream scoops and one vanilla scoop - got it the other way round. My wife's brie from cheeseboard was like a brick and returned. Should never have left kitchen. Despite all this it was just about ok. Did not tip. I like to tip as I used to work in the trade and appreciate how hard it is. Cheers
Was visiting Ayr with Family yesterday and we went to the Waterfront for dinner. There was 7 adults and 2 young children. The staff where amazing and made us feel very welcome and could not do enough for us. The food was freshly cooked and tasted fantastic. Great choice on the menu and not over priced. Highly recommend.
The overall service I feel wasn't great to be honest. When myself and my partner arrived we advised we had a reservation and it looked to us as though the staff were not aware of the reservation I had made, and to be told "just sit at that booth at the back" whilst one of the waitresses pointed to a table at the back of the room I don't really find that acceptable service.... it would have been a lot nicer and better customer service to have been shown to our table. The drinks were good value and the cocktail my partner ordered they enjoyed it. The meal itself, we both ordered pan fried salmon with chilli noodles. The salmon was average but I expected the salmon to have crispy skin as it was pan fried? The sauce on the noodles tasted like it was out of a jar. We decided not to have a dessert as the main was not great. We asked for the bill and were then charged full price for the salmon when it was a promo every Friday night "Fishy Friday". We had to go to the bar and advise we had been overcharged for the meals which was rectified by one of the waitresses. Im not sure if it was just a bad night or something was wrong but the overall atmosphere, service and food was all quite poor and unfortunately we wont be returning and wont be recommending the Waterfront as we were both disappointed after reading the great reviews about it!
The staff at The Waterfront were all friendly and helpful; the food was lovely and the meal was very good value for money.
Family thoroughly enjoyed their meal.
Good pub grub. Our dog was made very welcome. Staff lovely and attentive without being obtrusive. Pretty good value for money with the 2 courses + drink menu for £14.95
Roast beef was very dried up, Yorkshire pudding and carrots and parsnips nice however the whole dish was not hot enough, but disappointing. Pudding was good.
Enjoyed a lovely meal here on Saturday, 2 courses and a cocktail for £15. Service and staff were excellent, also now a dog-friendly restaurant which is good to know!
Have always enjoyed my visits

Fantastic meal and service.
Great location by the river. excellent service and good food. Will be back.
Staff were fabulous, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble.Very relaxed atmosphere and food was delicious, chef even wrote Happy Birthday on my husband's desert plate..nice touch! Definitely be back.
Food delicious, presentation lovely & despite being very busy and short a member of staff on the day we attended, the service was excellent. We will definitely be back.
Food was good. Only negative was the bacon on the chicken supreme was really fatty so didn’t want to eat. Otherwise an enjoyable afternoon!
Food was really good - especially for the price. Had the 3 course Sunday menu and it was great value. Only issue was veg and roasties a bit hard. Service was just ok. Would definitely recommend it tho!
Lovely friendly staff- even the dog was made welcome. Food was stunning!! We absolutely loved your blankets. Will be back next time we’re in Ayr!
Superb quality- best in Ayr
