Straightforward one step up from pub food, served by very nice staff in a welcoming place. Fish was good - fish and chips was really good. Reasonable value for money; not cheap but not over the top.Nice house wines, Belhaven beer.

Booked this accommodation on line. Looked great from what I could see. Checked in inside the restaurant area and was shown our room tucked away down the back. Looked like we were going into staff quarters. But they had just refubished it and the room was pleasant. We decided to eat at their restaurant as the menu read well. The...

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
