This was our third visit to the Waterfront, and we were not disappointed, again very friendly and helpful staff, both in the restaurant, the room maids, and the excellent chef. The choice at breakfast will suit the most critical guests, cereals, fresh fruit, and a good range of cooked meals, I can recommend the smoked haddock with poached eggs! Our...

We stayed here while visiting parents nearby, mainly due to reviews on TA. We are very glad that we did as our room, a family room as it turned out, was fantastic. We had a huge bed, as well as 2 bunk beds should we have fancied it. The bed was comfortable and we both had a great night's sleep....

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
