Staff are very friendly and helpful. Starters a bit small for the portions size and what you pay for but overall great visit.

The food was really, really good. I ordered something I wouldn’t normally eat and I loved it. The waitress that we had was so so nice and accommodating. She made our experience sweet. It wasn’t cold at school because they have outdoor heating, you can even tell that you were eating outside

Despite the fact we had to eat outdoors and it was blowing a gale we had a memorable experience.
The staff were amazing working in such unpleasant conditions in the wind and rain and the food was amazing.
Will certainly go back again.

Even though it was a very cold and windy bank holiday and we nearly cancelled because of the weather!!
We were really glad we didn't as the food and service were great and it was lovely to be able to eat out.
It would be nice if a few more outdoor heaters had been working.

Fantastic service, very friendly staff as ever, wonderful food, great location in Gunwharf looking over the harbour area.
We obviously sat outside and although it was a blustery and cold we still had a lovely enjoyable lunch.
No complaints at all.
Thank you.

Service and food excellent as ever. However a 9.30 breakfast outside was far too cold (despite the heaters) and we had to eat our breakfast very quickly!!! Maybe blankets could be offered at a charge of £2 or £3 to cover cleaning?? (Keep the knees warm!!!)

Lovely food. We ate so much. Server was lovely.
It was very cold though and patio heaters were not working but we wore big coats so didn't matter.
Lovely wine.

Booked a table for 2 Adults and 2 children aged 4 and 12. We arrived and were shown directly to our table upstairs with a fab view. Our waitress Vanessa was amazing. She was so helpful and attentive. She advised us on what was available and made us feel like we were no trouble at all. I’d definitely recommend the food. It was perfect.

They accommodated us slightly early. I would have preferred the drinks to have been brought out prior to breakfast but that’s my personal taste. It was a sunny May day but all seating was in the shade and despite wrapping up we were really cold.

Quite pleasant. Staff were friendly and food was good if pricey. But a shame so many heaters were broken and it could have done with a few more weater screens as it really is exposed facong onto the harbour.

We visited for lunch for my husband’s birthday this week. We had a bit of a struggle finding the disabled entrance and were initially greeted by a very busy waitress but we were seated quickly by another lady and she couldn’t have been more friendly or accommodating. From that point we were served quickly, the food was great and the service was spot on. Overall it was a really pleasant meal and I’m looking forward to going back again in future. Would highly recommend for a tasty meal with good value and good service, as well as a great view.

Considering it's only outside dining at the moment, I wasn't cold - the Gunwharf Carluccio's is quite sheltered and the canopy's and heaters made it bearable in the cold and rain :-)

As we understandably had to sit outside I would of expected all of the overhead heaters to be working, especially as it was a cold day but unfortunately they weren't and only 1 worked by us. I had to ask for the set menu rather than being given it when we sat down.
