How far was the walk from Sunborn to Shul?
I can't imagine it's more than 20 minutes.

Hello All,

Is there a way to eat at a restaurant in GIB - like in Athens for Shabbos or is it all community people? My DW likes the privacy and was wondering? Otherwise, I can get food at the stores - correct? Looks like there are a few places.

Sadly, http://www.jewishgibraltar.com/ looks down for now.

Cafe Amar isn't open on Shabbos from what I remember.

If you showed up at shul you'd probably get invited out. I got 2 or 3 invites Friday night and 1 or 2 shabbos day even though we had a place.

The website is working for me.

Are you crazy? It's a 25 minute walk or a 7 minute drive at most. GIB is tiny!

What about going through the border? Takes time?

With a car, yeah, it can take about 30 minutes, but on foot there didn't seem to be a wait. If the cab drops you off on the La Linea side it's a quick walk in.

According to this site it should cost a bit, but it's probably your best option.

True, especially if you have to pay for parking in GIB. Where are you staying there?

Most people I know who've gone have stayed at a hotel for shabbos (all shuls are within a 15 minute walk of all hotels, most are 5 min or less), and get hosted for meals. Were you looking to stay with someone for shabbos or just eat there?
