Locals recommended this restaurant and it was some of the best food we had in Scotland. Right on the waterfront with a nice view of the harbor. The waitress was nice and friendly and so were the other customers. We walked along the waterfront before heading back to St. Andrews.

We've eaten squid all over, Spain, Canada to name a couple but the starter of lemon squid was wonderful. Beautifully prepared and presented with a small salad and balsamic decorated plate, truly the best we've ever had. Fish and chips for one of us and chicken Mexican fajitas for the other, both excellent. We couldn't manage a sweet but we... More

Today we had the pleasure of lovely food and wine sitting in the sunshine at The Waterfront but the star of the show was our lovely waitress Hazel. She was very busy but nothing was a bother, first class service well done !

We use this particular chip shop each time out of the three in Anstruther we prefer the Waterfront sometimes there can be a wait but it's to be expected when it a lovely day and what Anstruther is known for. Kids meal is actually enough for myself.

We waited a long time to be served, but that was to be expected as it was a local school holiday which meant a lot of people were out and about. Shop was very busy, but I thought that at least this would mean that the fish supper would be nice and fresh. Unfortunately this was not the case, the... More
