All our fish arrives daily from sustainable stocks from "Day Boats" that land to local Fish Markets, mainly Plymouth and Salcombe.

We were recommended after eating at Hix in Lyme Regis.
In Salcombe for the easter weekend we tried to book when we arrived.
As the restaurant is small,we would have been on a wait list.
Definitely one to book.
Delicious fresh & tasty. The team were exceptionally friendly & the food was amazing.
Glad we took a chance & dropped by.
Do it. But book in advance.

We had a wonderful lunch at this little place which was made even better by the fact that we got to sit in the sunshine for the first time in months!

Service was impeccable and we enjoyed a couple of glasses of cold white wine whilst we enjoyed the view. I enjoyed the hot shellfish platter and my husband had the scallop starter with a bowl of chips (very generous portion size!). Both meals were absolutely delicious.

We ate in three restaurants during our 2 night stay in salcombe and this was easily the best! Looking forward to returning!

Although the location is slightly out of the centre of Salcombe we were very glad to have walked the extra few minutes to get there for lunch. The seafood was fresh and locally sourced, cooked in front of us and the atmosphere was relaxed and laid back. We ordered the mussels and the crab linguini which were both delicious. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Beautiful setting to enjoy a very good lunch. Food was very good, especially the bisque and catch of the day. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and made sure our daughter had as enjoyable time as we did. Will definitely be back again when next in the area.
