Went last weekend, staff were very very good nd helpfully I found my fish slightly bland and under seasoned but perhaps thats a taste issue - the hake would have been fantastic with some fresh chill and coriander ! My wife has scallops whihc were perfect - all in all a very enjoyable evening

Enjoyed a fabulous meal on a wet and cold Thursday evening. Fromt start to finish everything was perfect. Good welcome and the lady waiter has excellent knowledge of the fish (you have to have the fish here!) and her service was faultless. We started with the Tempura and a risotto. Both perfectly cooked. Our main courses were the Haker and... More

It is 12 months since we last visited Neils Restaurant. Our party of 6 was warmly welcomed by Neil, Anne and the "crew". All our selected dishes were excellent continuing our past experiences of superb fish based starters and main courses. It was also hard to resist the desserts particularly the flaming chocolate creme brûlée!. We look forward to returning.... More

We always book Neils for visiting friends and relatives. We have NEVER had a poor meal. Not only is the cuisine excellent the service is efficient and friendly. The decor and the atmosphere is perfect, relaxed and you are able to converse without loads of background music blaring in your ears >

Visited here with friends in October. We had an excellent meal - the fish was very good. Be careful not to fill up on the lovely bread. The staff were very friendly. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Sidmouth.

We reserved a table for 6 a few days before our Saturday evening dinner. I was a little bit disappointed with our table placed as it was in the middle of the restaurant. This ws however more than made up for by the level of service given and the quality of food served. We started with a bottle of Prosecco... More

Shown straight to our table and offered water in a jug which was topped up throughout the meal. Had mussels as a starter, very tasty and scallops as a main. These were very well cooked. Too full to try dessert. Staff very friendly and attentive even though the restaurant was full. Would definitely go again.

Booked a table at this restaurant in advance of a 2 night break in Sidmouth for last night. We arrived on time and were made welcome immediately. Our starters of Mackerel and Grilled Sardines were a good opener. The Bream and Lemon Sole that followed were equally enjoyable. We finished of a most pleasant meal sharing Wild Blackberry and Raspberry... More
