Sublime food, perfectly cooked!
Chose the 2 course choice £21. Had scallops to start perfectly cooked , husband chose spicy prawns on noodles such amazing flavours !
For main I had a wonderful piece of hake accompanied by a sauce and served with potatoes and crispy fresh vegetables,husband chose rib eye, again perfectly cooked with fat chips. Wine reasonably priced.
The waitresses really know how to work this restaurant! Atentative but not intrusive and always around when you needed them, had excellent knowledge of the menu.
The fish choice is amazing great for fish lovers. Basic furnishings and decor, but, small and intimate, booking absolutely essential.
I wish I lived in mevagissey I wouldn't eat out anywhere else. We visited twice wish we'd gone more. Definitely up there as one of the best restaurants I have eaten in.

We had been looking for a good restaurant around the St Austell area and found this on TripAdvisor. It turned out to be one of the best meals we had had for a long time, not only in Cornwall, but throughout the UK. The restaurant is quite small, but has a lovely feel to it and the staff were helpful and friendly. There is a set price for either 2 or 3 courses, so you know exactly what you are paying. The wine was also very reasonable for such a nice place and the food was amazing. We all look forward to going back again soon.

A delicious meal & very nice service.
£26 set price for 3 courses, with a good range of choices, was also excellent value for a meal of this calibre.

Very popular, definitely have to book. Salamander is a small restaurant with tables close together so when it's full it can be difficult to hear each other across the table. There was a good choice of food on the menu so it's fine if you don't want seafood.
The cornish sole we had was cooked to perfection and available with a choice of sauces served in a little accompanying dish. Starters and main course were excellent. Very reasonably priced.

Stumbled across Salamander by accident and took a chance without a booking. We were welcomed with open arms.
The menu looked interesting with a good selection of dishes. The four of us chose something different. Every dish was well presented and very tasty. The staff served us courteously and efficiently. The atmosphere was excellent and the whole evening was a positive experience. Salamander is a real jem.
