Been meaning to visit the Salamander for a few years now and wish I had visited earlier, as it was a truly wonderful experience. The staff, the selections, the ambience, the wines, were all fantastic.. this restaurant is well worth the visit and you won't be disappointed. A true 5 star location and experience

We called in on the off chance of there being a table. Fortunately we were early and so could have a table as long as we were out by 8.30pm. Although we were first there and it was a bit odd being the only ones, we were accompanied after a while by other early diners. We started with Brie for... More

What a lovely unpretentious warm welcoming homely delightful well run friendly restaurant. We loved our meals scallops and sea bass and a mixed board of desserts how fantastic, we also had a very reasonable bottle of Argentinian Malbec the service was excellent. When in Mevagissey you must book and go.

What a lovely restaurant, with fabulous staff, brilliant food, and a great laid back, unpretentious atmosphere. The 3 course menu for £24 is incredible value, and I can't praise the food highly enough. I had the hot crab pot, sea bass and a cappuccino creme brulee. My husband had thai prawns with noodles, pork cutlet, and sticky toffee pudding. All... More

Me and my partner came for the weekend away and stayed at st Austell . We happened across the salamander by chance! We looked at the menu and I fancied about everything on the menu! It was £24 for three courses or £26 for three if you had beef,lamb or duck. Absolute bargain. We were greeted and sat to the... More

Four of us dined here last New Year's Eve and were very impressed with the food, service and general ambience. A special menu was offered which was surprisingly extensive given that we did not have to pre-choose. The included "Welcoming Bubbles and Canapes" was a nice touch. A wholly satisfying meal, and a great way to set us up for... More
