GOGOS Waterfront Restaurant is a charming family run hidden gem. We are situated at Windsor Racecourse Marina, (next door to Windsor Racecourse), and we have lovely views over the marina and Windsor racecourse. During the summer enjoy alfresco dining on our lower deck and refreshing beverages on the top deck. During the colder months cosy up next to the roaring fire in our Shebeen where we serve our full menu We are dog friendly throughout so you can bring your pet pooch as long as they are well behaved.

There's free parking, lovely relaxed seating, a lively Shebeen bar and friendly staff waiting to serve exotic meats, espetadas - (our signature dish which is a skewer of meat or seafood, dripping with marinade over your side dish), sticky ribs and much more.

Lovely South African wines, creative cocktails, extensive range of gins and even Don Pedros the South African 'milkshake cocktail'.

A stunning venue with amazing views. Staff are warm, friendly and very welcoming.
Just had business drinks but will be returning for a meal again very soon.

I hate to complain but had a really disappointing meal out this evening. Bill was just under £100 and definitely not value for money. The food was average compared to our last visit, the staff were polite but not attentive at all. No one came to check back if our food was ok, or offer any more drinks or ask us if we wanted dessert. We asked for the bill, waited and eventually had to go up to pay.
Basically felt neglected the whole time.
I work in hospitality myself and even to talk to the customer and interact makes the world of difference.
If I’m spending £30 on a main course I kind of expected it to be better.
Such a shame

We arrived at the restaurant at 1.35pm. Our drinks order was taken immediately but we waited 15 min for 2 drinks. We then waited a further hour for lunch to arrive, despite ordering when our drinks were served. The food also arrived cold - by this point we were both too hungry (and annoyed) to send it back. There were plenty of staff on duty and the restaurant was by no means busy so the issue is with the kitchen. Portion sizes were excellent, as was the flavour but we think it’s overpriced for what it is. We’ll happily go there for a drink in the summer but we won’t eat there again. Very disappointing.

Food was ok bacon was a lil strange tasting and hard. The waitress has no information of what kind of bacon it was and didn’t offer to find out. Also same waitress came to the wrong table twice. What I found a bit weird was while we were waiting to be seated the host was on the phone advising someone that they were fully booked and had no tables right now. Looking around for the time we were there there were quite a few tables free…

10 years of friendship dinner - setting is lovely and feels like you’re on holiday with the yachts and we were there on a warm evening. The cocktails are really good and generous sizes (as are all the portions). We got the skewers and would highly recommend the steak, however the monkfish was a bit overcooked. Would recommend for a fun different experience when in Windsor. Staff were very friendly and attentive.

We came for a nice meal in an absolute gorgeous setting and this is not what we received!!!

The meal was gorgeous and service inside was excellent but a couple came in with their dog who did NOT stop barking - not once did this dog get told not to bark by the staff or the owners - ruined our evening..... and to shut the dog up they picked it up and put it on the seat beside them... somewhere where some one else is going to have to sit!

We asked to move outside as we could not take the barking anymore and it was not a warm night and had to ask for the heaters to be turned on! Although we commented on the dog we were told that it is a dog friendly restaurant... Good, I have 2 dogs of my own but why should that dog ruin our evening? The manager could have easily apologised to us and asked the couple to ssshhh the dog up...
Nothing was said to us all night and as said it completely ruined our experience and we were there to celebrate a 50th birthday.

Also the outside staff were not very efficient - we had to keep finding them when we wanted more drinks!

I recommended this restaurant for us to go to but not sure I would do this in future.

Went for breakfast. Lovely setting, quiet and looking over the Windsor Marina. Lots of space between tables. Had the tofu scramble, and even though its more of a meat eaters restaurant it was absolutely yummy and tasty. Good portion size, enough but not too much. Great coffee too with oat milk.

Food is very expensive and really poor quality, and I’m really not fussy! The beef espetada looked and tasted “boiled” not grilled my monkfish espetada I sent back as was so awful tasting and dry (I was the third person that night who sent it back) we were better off ordering only the chunky chilps as that’s all that was worth eating. Really expensive meal (£235) for 4 people ( no wines, only 2 drinking alcohol) and very dissatisfied and disappointed meal! Ambiance was great, service was adequate but food was below adequate! Won’t go again to eat that’s for sure!

Great venue and great atmosphere.
Staff were really friendly and accommodating. The only thing that make it make it down is my beef burger cost £17 and vegan burger even more at £19 which blew my mind. But would come back again.

Hi,

We had to wait a long time for our table even though we booked, which meant we couldn't order drinks. Even after being seated we had to call over the waitress twice to request to order drinks.

Overall beautiful day to spend in the surroundings and food was amazing

Well posistioned resturant - If your not seated facing the car park !
Female staff attentive and with a smile on their face - Male colleagues not so much.
They seem to get very anxious when they have a lot of people to serve which can be a long wait !
The food was hot but not memorable - worth a visit .

Food was lovely, once it finally came out and came out correctly. Service on the other hand was awful. There was one lovely helpful waitress, didn’t get her name but wore glasses and fair coloured hair, that served us and actually knew what she was doing. Everyone else was clueless, forgetting drink orders, getting orders wrong, bought out the food half plated. And one gentleman in particular, was incredibly rude, shouting across tables to us that he couldn’t help us as he was too busy at the reception and he was over booked, as if it was our problem. Location is stunning and good lovely but shame the staff let it all down. Busy or not, shouldn’t of been so rude and useless.

Our second visit to GOGOS, the food was lovely as always. A shame they had a run out of squid as that’s one of my favourites.
The restaurant was extremely busy, our food was really late and sadly we were not given side plates, I had to get up to request these from staff. It was my husbands birthday and I requested that the Malaga pudding be brought out after our main course with a happy birthday message written on, staff agreed to this but unfortunately this did not happen.
Sadly not the greatest experience.
Thank would recommend GOGOS to a friend but warn them of our experience too.

It was a lovely setting, the waiting staff taking out orders were great, however the kitchen had run out of quite a few options on the menu, and it wasn’t that late. Secondly two beers were ordered and the first took about 20 minutes to arrive and the second one just never turned up and we then left. Shame about this as the restaurant has potential to be really really ace. I’ll come back for drinks !

Nice setting on a lovely sunny day overlooking the boats in the marina.

The food was fine, the sauce for the ribs did smother the chips a bit but the half rack of ribs was a big peoption and the pudding was gorgous.
