About Waterfront Bistro
Modern British cuisine using fresh local produce. A place to relax and feel special.
Beautiful, incredible tasting food served in a relaxed atmosphere at a very reasonable price. I have paid a lot more for food half as good. Service was impeccable, not over bearing but catered to our needs perfectly. I asked for a window seat on the booking form and we had a lovely view over the harbour. If I had any complaints it would be the specials board was a little sparse on that particular night (pea soup and pasta puttanesca) however when the regular menu is as special as it is anyway I can barely call this an issue. Easily the best restaurant I’ve eaten at in Suffolk and I can’t wait to return.
Lovely meal and service
Our party really enjoyed our meals and the venue. Will definitely return in the future. Thank you.
The food and atmosphere were absolutely brilliant, live music on a Sunday from 3pm was wonderful. The service was brilliant and only got 4 stars because I feel it took too long for someone to come over to take payment when we had finished which is very minor and some would say I'm being picky but it's my honest opinion, I would definitely come back and have already recommended to other people to visit
POOR ATTENTION TO DETAIL, FISHCAKE/POACHED EGGS STARTER HARD, PLAIN, NO FINESSE. BEEF WELLINGTON TOO SALTY, TO THE POINT OF BEING INEDIBLE, VERY EXPENSIVE ALSO AT £29.95. WILL NOT BE ATTENDING AGAIN ANY TIME SOON WHICH IS A SHAME AS IT WAS RECOMMENDED BY FRIENDS.
This was our first visit to the Waterfront Bistro and we'll definitely be coming back. The live music created a great atmosphere.
Fabulous evening here for a friend’s big birthday. Group of 9 of us and service and food was all excellent. The evening couldn’t have been better and we were very well looked after - thank you
Very well looked after
Fantastic views and lovely service. A very romantic experience.
Highly recommended. There was a singer when we attended this time and a terrific atmosphere. Never had anything but excellent food and service every time I've been here
The Waterfront Fish Pie was incredible, bursting with flavours. Can't wait to have another.
A really enjoyable evening. Good food in pleasant surroundings and the staff were excellent
Booking online couldn't have been easier. Warm, friendly and attentive staff could have asked for better. All three meals were presented beautifully, cooked perfectly and tasted as good too. Can not fault the night or any other when I've been.
Unfortunatly I think the Waterfront has gone downhill. We used to come here a lot with big groups of friends/birthday/outtings. Out friends were down from London so I though I’d book.. but I dont think I’ll be back. We ordered 2 bottles of wine and it took 15 mins to get them with no apology. (There was only about 4 other tables dining, so we didnt understand the delay) Steak was too burnt around the edges which took away the steak flavour. Chips were amazing though!
A very nice 'stop off' post fantastic performance at DanceEast. Very good,freshly cooked food,nicely presented and generous portions.Excellent friendly service,without being intrusive.
Excellent value for money and delicious food
Great food, nice location. Can’t wait to go again!
Great food and service as alwayd
Sorry, but was very disappointed. I used to rave about this place - what happened? Food was no where near what it used to be. Service was not great and overall a let down. Thanks lease have a re think!
Great food and a wonderful relax atmosphere
Friendly service & very good value
We had a very nice meal, thank you
We came on Sunday. There were 4 adults and 2 children. We ordered our drinks and waited for 45 minutes after asking a few times if it would be quicker to go downstairs to get them ourselves. We were told they were on their way. We eventually went down ourselves to get them. The food was really good and hot and everyone pretty much cleared their plates. The atmosphere was nice but very loud as there was a singer downstairs. I would probably return as the food was lovely but the service needs to improve. It was very busy downstairs but not too busy upstairs in the restaurant.
Excellent lunch once again...
Love your restaurant ambience music everything very lovely place 👍
