FOOD enthusiasts rejoice! Bistro Point is now open!
By far the most exciting addition to Gibraltar’s dining scene for years, Bistro Point will add much needed flavour to a dining scene on the Rock which some say has become stale.
The kitchen will be headed by oustanding Michelin Trained Executive Chef, Ben Hayes.
Offering sumptuous food and breath-taking views the restaurant is sure to take Gibraltar by storm.
The University of Gibraltar and the Hunter Group have combined forces to open up the culinary experience.
The Hunter Group will operate and develop the restaurant which will be open from Monday to Friday between 9am to 6pm with weekend hours introduced in the run up to Christmas.
Professor Daniella Tilbury, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Gibraltar is delighted with the new restaurant.
“We are delighted to have entered into partnership with a Group that understands, and is able to support, our ambitions in hospitality training and education.
“Our restaurant offers the best views in Gibraltar. It will undoubtedly prove popular with the locals and become a destination restaurant for visitors to the Rock,” she said.
The Hunter Group have years of experience in managing deluxe, high-end restaurants across Europe, including those with the much coveted Michelin star.
Andy Hunter, spokesperson for the Group discussed his excitement at being involved in the new project.
“We are delighted to be working with the University of Gibraltar.
We are passionate about providing fresh, tasty and nutritious food conducive to productivity.
We will be working with the University to create a centre of excellence for both on-site and off-site catering,” he said.
The Hunter Group will also work with the university to offer innovative training programmes to support the local food and drink industry.
By training chefs and restaurant managers the university hopes to position Gibraltar as a world leader in hospitality.
