What a shame great location absolutely disgusting food, we were unable to eat the food placed before us, how can they feed people with this sort of poor quality food. The bread roll was like a defrosted sponge. Staff agreed.

We had dinner at Waves last night. Staff were very lovely (except for one - a simple smile would have improved that) and the location is great! Our entrees were very yummy - samosas and calamari. And a big mention to the ICE COLD wine and beer. It sure does make a drink so much better when it's super cold!... More

We dined here for an impromptu family dinner as we have had good experiences in the past. Although the food was delicious, the wait for service was quite long as was the delivery of our meals. The pasta servings were small but the 450g rib eye was more than enough. We had the shared dessert platter which was an excellent... More

The food and service are excellent, the prices are very reasonable, Make sure you get a table on the balcony as the view is exceptional. We always enjoy going there.

Enjoyed a lovely lunch at this restaurant. It is a busy restaurant with limited seats. Making a booking would ensure that you get a seat. The food is lovely and the staff were friendly and helpful. There's a good selection of food at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit.

Nice setting, fantastic service but food lacked flavour. Paella was warm and oysters were cold. Fairly busy but good vibes

Always get a great meal here and rarely is there not fantastic specials. Service can be a little lax at times. We went for lunch while on xmas hols with a few friends and had a lovely meal. Desert was odd and we couldn't work out the issue until tasting the coulis and it had been mistakenly made with salt... More

Was looking for a nice seafood lunch and waves did not disappoint. We both had the seafood paella and it was very tasty and had a lovely lot of mixd seafood in it. We also shared an antipasto platter which had a wonderful variety of starter food. The locally brewed beer was also great to wash it down with.
