Whilst we do not recommend any specific restaurants, as owners and chef's do change, there are some favourites that have been around for many years.
However, please do check current reviews before venturing forth.
V& A Waterfront - there are many restaurants to choose from here - most of these have menu's on display outside so you can choose what suits both budget and taste.
Wander around the V&A (always a pleasure) and see what tickles your taste buds.
It is a place that one can never get bored while eating - there is always something going on from buskers to the sound of shows in the Amphitheatre to Live Bands to Volvo Ocean Race or Clipper Round the World Sailors.
Some of our favourites in the V&A:
Harbour Café - Superb Fish dishes
Spur - always good for the 2 for 1 burger on Monday nights or if you have kids
Quay Four - very vibey with basic pub food
Balducci's - Italian, usually busy
Ferrymans - outside tables for a laid back pub lunch or supper
Mitchells for many Draught Beers!
The Brass Bell
There are many other eateries and it's a gorgeous suburb to wander down Main Street for antiques, artworks, people watching and the fishing harbour.
Bertha's - for eating right near the sea
Perseverance Tavern - Friday nights are great fun - pub food
