I love to see rod caught Tuna on any menu given the depletion of the fish in our oceans. Dean and I are looking forward to dining at Gatsby’s Eating House when we next visit Gibraltar.
MUMBAI CURRY HOUSE
Visits to Gibraltar always include a trip to Morrisons to stock up with all the British goodies
on offer that we cannot get here in Estepona.
As usual I was starving and Dean and I looked for somewhere close by to eat.
We had seen the Mumbai Curry House before but never went there to eat, so it was decided to give it a try.
First impressions were not great to be honest, it didn’t look like anything special.
Standing at the counter we took a look at the menu on display there.
We made our selection not sure what the quality of the food was going to be like.
A couple of business types came in chatting and walked up the wooden staircase to the upper level and we followed suit.
I was surprised, it was quite pleasant upstairs, newly decorated and clean.
In the corner of the room were copious sack of rice, piled as high as the room. I have never seen so much rice! It wasn’t off putting though, it was very neat a tidily placed.
The toilets were also situated upstairs and were immaculate.
The little dining room soon became very busy and it became evident that people working around and about had pre-ordered their lunch, probably to save time as they were on their lunch hour.
Nevertheless, we were served quickly by a friendly and attentive waiter.
The food was gorgeous. It tasted fresh and vibrant, not like other Indian meals I have had before where you can taste the commercial cooking paste.
Coming from below I could make out constant chopping going on and you could tell from the quality of the food that all the curry pastes, samosas and bhajis are homemade.
The waiter was friendly without being too pushy, he cleared dirty dishes away without his hardly even noticing.
I would certainly go there again and will take my friend Peter there, who is not too keen on Indian cuisine. I am sure he will be converted.

CANNON BAR AND RESTAURANT
After spending a lovely morning wandering around Gibraltar’s bustling array of
duty free shops, Dean and I felt a little bit peckish and stumbled across a delightful
little pub just off main street.
The Cannon Bar and Restaurant is tucked away up a shady lane off Mainstreet.
It had been a very hot day and we chose to sit in a shaded outside table.
It is a typical English style pub inside. The bar propped up by a couple of locals
watching football on the television.
I asked for a couple of menus and went to wash my hands.
The toilet area was clean enough.
After a couple of minutes a waiter came to take our order. He was polite and courteous.
We both decided to eat a small ploughman’s lunch, as we were too hot for a heavier meal.
Drinks and food were served quickly and we tucked into a delightful plate of
Cheese, pork pie, pickles, salad and crusty bread and butter.
If I had to criticise anything, I would have liked to have had a few different types
of cheese, rather than just a HUGE chunk of cheddar.
But at £3.95 I feel that we had great value for money.
I would certainly visit the Cannon Bar and Restaurant again.
It is certainly not glamorous but it is an English Pub and serves up exactly what is promises. Looking forward to cooler months when I could order some home cooked choices, but in the extreme heat ploughman’s was
a good choice.
