Sat outside on a lovely evening with family and our dog. Fish and scampi was fab, which was a relief sitting on Anstruther Harbour. Vege lasagne was lovely. Staff were friendly, it was a busy night so took a little longer with service but didn't matter.

Visited here for 2nights last week . Very nice room . The restaurant has lovely food and great fish as you would expect in this location, nice service and super breakfasts. I love eggs benedict so was very happy. Not too expensive especially as we were on a deal. Would be happy to come here again.

Horrific customer service and poor facilities. Poor food also- the breakfast was cold and not cooked properly. Would NOT RECOMMEND due to staff being rude and obnoxious. Facilities were poor, many essentials were not provided.

Had the fish and chips which was £12.75 I believe, fish was ok but chips were of the frozen variety, ordered a glass of Sauvignon Blanc but it was very rhubarby flavoured not what would expect from Sauvignon variety. £4.75 was a tad expensive for a wine of this quality. Service was at times strange. Was a little disappointed and...

Very quiet despite being right opposite the harbour. I thought we might be awoken early by the boats, but not at all. Restaurant was busy and food excellent. All staff very...

Just returned from a two night break at the Waterfront, first class! The location is superb, ideally situated at the harbour front, lots to see and nice walks. The room, food were excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Will most definitely be back. Thank You

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Described as "One of the treasures of the East Neuk," The Waterfront was proudly opened in May 2003, hosting a 55 seat a’ la carte restaurant. Personally run, The Waterfront has Anstruther’s finest location situated just a few steps from Anstruther’s harbour and marina with views over the Firth of Forth. During the warmer months we boast al fresco dining to the front and a mature courtyard for relaxing to the rear. We aim to cater for all tastes. Varied Seafood selections, chef’s specials, children’s menu, delicious coffee and cakes. The Waterfront seafood selection is surely there to impress boasting freshly delivered fish from local markets including oriental scallops, citrus salmon, stuffed sea bass, steamed mussels and a true Scottish favourite that has stood the test of time, good old Fish and Chips. ... more   less

“Most of the rooms I have stayed in are of similar quality, it is an old building that creaks a bit, but that adds to charm of the place.”
