Overall a nice little beach place. Our food was slow to come out and they forgot about our child’s meal. Food choices are limited but good & we enjoyed our meal.
We visited Wax several times last year so it was a shock to have such a poor experience this time. The 2 burgers ordered were raw in the centre and had to be returned. They came back cooked but the cheese and bacon topping was then dried out. However the burgers were really poor quality meat, nothing like what we had eaten last year and were not nice. £100 bill, therefore its not good enough.
Once one of my favourites following many visits, our experience this time was poor. A reduced menu and staff was understandable assuming Covid was a driving factor. However the food was awful, burgers were tasteless and overcooked. I will try Wax again as it’s been so good previously, but it’s game needs to be lifted if it’s to remain a must visit.
Lovely setting with excellent fish and chips. Relaxing atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Like everywhere, understaffed. Have had much better food there than on this occasion. The staff were very pleasant just not enough of them sadly. Such a shame as it’s a beautiful location and we drink/eat there often.
Terrible service. Food took forever. Mains came out before starters. All in all not a very relaxing meal.
The service was extremely slow. Reservation was for 7pm, first drink came after 20mins then we only ate after 8pm. The mussels were tasty and so was the squid starter. Seemed a little crowded given Covid restrictions. Will give it another try after restrictions are lifted.
Great location. Clearly a bit short staffed and it showed. Food was decent, but took a long time to come. Service was mixed, dependent on who you got.
Good food nice time
This was our 3rd visit to Wax during our visit as we were staying next door and it was convenient. The first visit I was very pleased at how accommodating they were and managed to book us in the following day however when we turned up they didn’t have our booking and we had to sit next to an open door downstairs away from the main restaurant area, they were very apologetic and took 15% off our bill as compensation. The menu is very basic and massively overpriced for the quality but nice place to grab a beer and a pizza after a day on the beach.
Nice food and vibe. Easy for where we were staying at Watergate Bay hotel
Very short staffed so very long wait for order taken/ served etc The 3 staff working were very pleasant and very apologetic but if there is insufficient staff takeaway service etc should be suspended or just do takeaway as it was a very disappointing meal especially as after reading marvellous past reviews and booking the table for my birthday weeks ago
Portions smaller than previous years however all meals were very tasty. It was very busy so service was very slow however when we had lunch Saturday afternoon it was quicker. The staff are always friendly and helpful........ fully recommend chocolate pizza as a dessert to share
Functional food. Not a huge menu. The mussels were delicious
Disappointed, nice atmosphere and lovely view however chicken wings were red and undercooked and the chicken burger tasted extremely fishy.
Excellent service from staff. Had an issue with one of our meals which the manager dealt with promptly and fairly. Fabulous veggie burger.
Food was lovely although service was a little slow and took around an hour for food to come and was disappointed as no fish at all from menu available. The view was lovely and overall would visit again.
Beautiful location & the food was nice but the service was slow and I thought the toilets could do with a good clean
A relaxed and welcoming place to visit. Busy but organised and the staff were helpful and friendly. The food was tasty. The view was spectacular. We will be returning and recommend to others.
Always love visiting you when we come on holiday.
Well done considering the amount of pressure you must be under at the moment .
We felt very safe and felt very welcome .

Great food, friendly service and felt safe. Limited menu currently but still plenty to choose from, large portions and all 5 of us ate everything.
Love this place. So very chilled, nothing like chilling outside with a beer with my dags.
The views of the sea and the atmosphere 👌 Food is delicious and the people that work there are friendly and helpful
Visited with family on last week of May so restaurant had only been up and running a couple of weeks. Enjoyed the meal but clearly short staffed (where isn’t?!) which I hope will improve. Friendly staff doing their very best though and varied menu with something for everyone.
Food was good but service was very slow with diners seated after us getting their food and finishing before we got our food despite it nearly being the same food!
Really nice venue. Very relaxed and excellent food
Friendly staff and good burger. Great location by the sea.
Reduced menu which wasn’t stated online and the food tasted like typical oven food for £65 for 2 adults & 2 children. Very poor
Great relaxed place, lovely friendly service. Mussels were delicious 😋
Great location. We could actually see the bay from where we sat. We were greeted by lovely staff who were helpful from the start. The restaurant was busy with a great atmosphere but we werent forgotten and the drinks were always refilled. The food was soooo good! I was full yet couldnt resist. The prices are very reasonable for what you get. The smells coming from the kitchen didnt make it easy for me to choose the main, but does give me a reaon to go back again. Very well laid out and the choice of inside eating or outside with heat and shelter was good.
Amazing friendly and great for dogs. Love this place!
Highly recommend the Wax, the food was great, staff were super helpful and friendly and the view is beautiful.
Delicious food and helpful staff. Would recommend :)
Amazing food ! Friendly staff although female waitress came out of ladies / I followed her and would love to know how she washed her hands as there was no soap ..🥴such a shame as food and service was excellent.
First day back after lockdown , but quiet , to be expected , but everything was good .
Perfect place after a day on the beach. A little cold eating outside on a cold evening but I imagine it would be excellent on a warm Summer’s evening.
Nice food,good service, nice atmosphere, great views
Beautiful setting with views across the bay , speedy and attentive service creating a nice overall atmosphere and pleasant ding experience
Always great food and service. Good to be back. Thanks guys 😊
Very nice food, good service and lovely views, quick and easy filling meal made out of the small bites. Thankyou
