    Had good memories of dining here in 2015 and eight years later it is just as good. The food is excellent, recommend the smoked duck starter and braised veal checks for main. This is a fine dining experience with service to match. The atmosphere can be a little staid but also can suffer from noise intrusion from other parts of the reception area however neither of which detract from the quality and presentation of the food.

    The staff were amazing BUT they are only operating the downstairs cafe section and not the upstairs restaurant this is NOT made clear on open table so the menu is 75% reduced seating is not as nice its a cafe attached to a hotel and booking this for a birthday dinner wasn’t as expected at all so I probably blame open table more than WB for not checking and updating their app. Disappointing

    As a vegetarian (and an absolute foodie) it's really hard finding decent restaurants with good quality food. The Waterbiscuit had a variety too chose from I wasn't stuck to have a salad or a pizza. Their service was excellent and food came out really quickly. In the midst of a pandemic they still made sure you had a pleasant dining experience with tables properly distanced to ensure a safe distance between patrons. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit them again.

    Somewhat of a 'hotel restaurant' a bit lacking in atmosphere but the food was very good with some imaginative dishes with complex flavours. Service was very attentive and a nice wine list with plenty of local wines. I would return if in St Julian again.
