Great service, food and views ! Love this place !
Food was lovely as always and staff so friendly and welcoming. The restaurant itself was clean, tidy and very well looked after.
The seafood tagliatelle was truly amazing. Will definitely be back to eat that again :)
Lovely setting, we ate upstairs and had a wonderful sea view. Super friendly and helpful staff, and everything arrived promptly. We felt the food is overpriced so wouldn’t choose to eat again but a great place to meet friends for drinks.
Disappointed that the chips were on top of the tartare sauce (should be kept separate as not everyone likes it!). Would have ordered pud but £9 for a bit if choccy brownie is a bit steep!!
We have been coming here for years since it was Phoenix and was afraid it would become up itself and exclusive like the rest of watergate bay but fortunately it hasn’t and doesn’t feel like it is trying to shut out the ‘normal’ people . Thank you and for your vegan options
Good food we all ordered different items from the menu, burgers, fish, veggie burger and goats cheese. All our plates were empty! Even though they seemed short staffed they were still very polite and the food was quite quick.
Soulless with mediocre food. A last resort for dinner. Friendly service
lovely staff. good service. delicious food. great location.
Love this place. Fabulous food, and lots of it!
Nice food, good service,and helpful staff would recommend
Booked last minute. Well staffed. Knowledgeable & helpful. Good service
A stunning setting over looking the Atlantic, very friendly staff who work very hard to ensure your experience is fully enjoyed.
There is a good choice of home cooked healthy food, I had a bean burger meal and it was beautiful.
A great selection of well kept ales and a very good selection of wine.
I would certainly recommend this for anyone wanting good food or wine in a relaxed, friendly and beautiful setting.
Food was not as good as last visit in 2019, sad as used to really like it here.
Service was great, girls really friendly and helpful.
You took the mozzarella sticks off the menu !! The music was far too loud and not very good, every song sounded the same !
Not special, they seemed to be struggling to take orders for drinks and food. Did not have the vibe of a surfers hang out or of anything special, Staff were friendly and seemed busy but not very attentive, needs a refresh to be able to recommend
The waitress was very nice, but sadly food didn't taste very nice and was over priced. I had read the reviews and was very disappointed, would be nice just for a drink.
Good food, but we were not told that the coleslaw, served as part of the meal had run out, or a alternative given.
Also 2 of the deserts had sold out only leaving 2 other options.
Great service, food and location. An enjoyable evening out.
Food nice but a little overpriced for the quantity/quality
£15 for a burger is a little expensive
£12 would have reasonable
For £15 the burger would have to be top notch but sadly it wasn’t
Pizza £16 again nice enough but not worth anything like £16
Great service from the waitresses
Great location, Drinks pricey
Would visit again
Good location overlooking watergate bay, easy to order drinks which arrived quickly but due to low kitchen staff numbers food took - hour 15 mins. Poor communication from staff who were working very hard without leadership.
We have been here a few times over the last 7 years and the food has definitely deteriorated in that time. This is such a shame as it could be so good.
Just want to make a special mention about our order taker.. she was very nice and helpful and always had a smile (sorry, we didn't get her name but she has blue hair).
We will come back as the place holds special memories for us.
Nice food, helpful and polite staff. Just was a bit pricey for a burger and a pint.
Delicious food served by friendly staff with a great location
Extremely overpriced..ordered the squid which was £8.50 for 5 tiny pieces of squid. I expect to pay more due to the location but at least get a decent portion!
Cheeseburger smelt uncooked, tasted awful with bun over-wet from lettuce, pretty disappointing.
Food was overpriced and portions were very undersized.
Drinks were ok. Service ok. Lacking in ambience. Think it’s a shame as this place could be great given its amazing location - such a shame.
It was a little slow to be served . Staff were friendly and food was ok . Nice and dog friendly too.
Slightly disappointed but would love to go again when less busy. The staff are friendly but we found our bar person quite distracted and didn't ask how our main meal was. Couldn't order a 2nd drink easily as so busy. We had the burgers and these were good. The fries and slaw, average. It was at 8 pm that we went in August.
Loved the place, vibe and overall feel of the place. Food and service could have been better.
The pizzas and calamaris were nice. A year earlier there was much more choice on the menu but like everywhere now it seems to be mainly pizzas and burgers. £65 lunch for 2 adults, 2 kids
We have been coming to Wax for 5 years and must say that this year will be the last. Meals are over priced and getting smaller very limited choice on menu .
Portion size greatly reduced price has gone up I know COVID has had an impact but not to rip people off .
It was my daughter’s 15th birthday we have had it at Wax for the last 5 years on booking form mentioned this usually staff make a fuss of her but not this year . Overall Wax has gone down in quality and choice we will be taking our business elsewhere from now on.
We had a booking at 18.30, but on arrival we’re told there was a 1 hour wait on food. We ordered, then 5 minutes later the waiter came back to tell us that they had sold out of mussels. After waiting 50 minutes for our meal to arrive. One of the pizzas we ordered had 2 long black hairs on it, obviously this was sent back for a replacement. I had booked this restaurant for my family and friends, because of the good reviews I had read, it’s such a shame I couldn’t leave a good review. The waiting staff were excellent though.
Food was tasty, sitting outside on a lovely sunny day overlooking the sea was perfect. The staff were genuinely friendly. Prices steep probably due to location.
Great location, excellent friendly service. Had a 'wax burger' which was a little dry towards the end but I'm 'nit picking' the taste was great. We will be going back!
I love it here. Attentive and obliging staff. Great ambience. Thanks!
Lovely food and very friendly staff. Food was punctual and all dishes came together.
Nice burgers. Nice to sit upstairs.
Eaten here so many time over the past 12 years, can honestly say our meal was so yummy, tasty & freshly cooked. Great service too considering how busy it was.
Thank you Wax... see you best year!
Staff and service very good.
Meal very expensive for what it was.
I had been sent a menu in the booking confirmation email.
The actual menu upon arrival was different. Much reduced in what is available but also much more expensive.
We had decided from the email menu what we would have.
Daughter wanted a pizza £11 on the email menu...£15 on the day.
I was going to have Nachos..but not on the menu there so chose a burger chips and coleslaw...( on the email menu for £12.50....£15 on the day)
Chips were very sparse with the burger and the coleslaw was just dried shredded carrot and cabbage.. no sauce.
I ordered a side of chips after seeing how little were served...extra £4.
The value for money was very poor.
For lunch I had been expecting to pay the email menu prices...around £30 with drinks.
one pepperoni pizza
Side of fries
Pint of soda water
Pint of Lemonade
Bill came to £38.60.
I paid £42 with service charge.
Even though the staff were all so lovely I decided to cancel my additional Friday evening meal booking due to the poor value of the food. I feel if the menu is not correct then it should not be included with the confirmation email.
Unfortunately impacted massively by covid so hardly any starters to choose from. Waited 1hr 10 for main courses which were forgotten. Despite this during normal times im sure they get things right, they done their best.
