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.

Service was excellent overall. The fish was swimming in oil and had not been left to drain before being put on the plate. Portion sizes were generous.

I felt on this visit that my starter wasn’t even warm never mind hot. But all the other courses were fine

Very much enjoyed our meal at the Waterfront. Had hoped to return to try some other items on the menu, but as this was our first trip to Ayr, we tried some other places too. We will return to Ayr and will be back to the WATERFRONT.
