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.
Hi, My family and I arrived at the Waterfront on Saturday at 12:00 for our reservation, after driving from Glasgow, to be met with a closed door and absolutely no message. We received a confirmation email on Friday. Why was an email confirming that the restaurant was closed not sent to all bookings for Saturday. At the very least I would expect an apology and a voucher for my family and I for the gross inconvenience caused and allow me to provide an appropriate review. A swift response would be appreciated.

A lovely venue, comfortable & relaxed atmosphere. Good service. Good choice of food & wines etc
We only had an hour to spare and the girls made sure we were able to stick to our schedule. Great friendly service and we all enjoyed our food. Couldn't fault anything.
Lovely meal and excellent value for money. Staff very friendly and efficient.
Good points: location and food was ok (when it arrived) Areas for improvement: zero atmosphere, cold, very uncomfortable high seating, tables too small to feel relaxed, place was quiet but took forever (±45mins after drinks came) to get our starters which should've only taken 5-10 mins to prep ( pate and mussels ). Expensive for what it is, average Scottish bar food. Toilets need cleaned, water spillages all over the floor which could easily be a slip hazard.
Meal & service was excellent,. Was lovely& cosy in such a horrible night weather wise
First time in a long time I've been. Phenomenal. Starter was good, main meal was brilliant, dessert (eton mess sundae!!) was other worldly! Great stuff, will be back!
Had a great lunch. Our server was soooooo lovely....she really looked after us. I pre-booked oysters and they were delicious.
Always met with a warm welcoming smile.and nothing is of any trouble to do.
Pity the real ale wasn't available, otherwise good!
No problems with anything.
I went with my daughter to have lunch just before Xmas 2019 whilst on a day trip to Ayr; the restaurant was previously recommended by her friends Tiffy, Woolley and Pete who originates from Ayr. We sat down at the table with a nice view of the waterfront. My daughter went for the children's menu (soup and pasta) whilst I went for the fish soup and the traditional fish & chips; crayons and paper are provided to keep the little ones entertained! All items arrived promptly and were freshly prepared. Both of us loved the starter and mains. This establishment has now become one of our favourites as we previously visited during the last two summers. The staff are also very friendly. We will definitely be back again and highly recommend The Waterfront. Many thanks Dr Ash.
As I was accompanied by my 95 year old aunt I had requested a table in a quiet area and the staff were aware of this request on our arrival. The bar area was busy but as we were the only persons in the restaurant (we were early diners) it was definitely quiet. Full marks to the staff who served us and also the catering staff. Looking forward to visiting again.
Rather quiet at the time of our meal but then it was the 2nd of Jan . It did mean however that we had speedy service and didn't have to wait too long for our delicious meal . All four of us had different mains and we were so pleased with the choices made . Tasty , fresh and hot . Pleasant service too ... will be back , thank you !
We had an excellent family lunch. Great service, lovely food.
"Best scampi I've ever had" according to one of the group and he's still talking about it! Thank you.
Really lovely meal. Will be back!
Only downfall being coeliac. Found croutons in my salmon and prawn caesar salad......
Place was nearly empty, no atmosphere. Food overpriced. Limited chicken dishes .Fish and chips, the chips were wedges.
We thoroughly enjoyed our festive meal. Very friendly and welcoming staff and atmosphere.
Lovely food, well presented and served up. Would recommend.
Waitresses were fun and looked after us well. Food was plentiful and tasty.
Overall a great experience. Been here many times and it has never let us down. Ever!
Food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and attentive,we had a lovely time at the Waterfront and would definitely return when we are in Ayr again.
