We were out walking in Mevagissy while passing through the area. We weren't dressed overly smart but we wanted somewhere relaxed and friendly to eat. We walked along the front of Mevagissy and looked at the prices of some of the places. They didn't look cheap and what we saw didn't justify the prices. Then we came across the salamander... More

We had a delightful meal in the Salamander. It is primarily a fish restaurant, although the menu also includes a good selection of other dishes. After a scallop starter, we both chose from the "Catch of the Day" menu: John Dory for my husband and Black Bream for me. Both were excellent - very fresh and cooked perfectly. The fish... More

The menu is mainly fish, with several options for Catch of the Day, I had hake, my partner Cornish Sole. Both were beautifully fresh. And the puddings, Wow, so often disappoint. Not this time. Chocolate praline torte with... More

Enjoyed eating in here on the Tuesday for my birthday, then went back again on the Friday for my wife's birthday. Excellent fish (Bream and scallops) one night, then we both had rack of lamb on the second visit. Excellent quality plus large portions - what more could one wish?

Enjoyed a lovely meal with my wife whilst on a short break, a busy restaurant with a nice atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, food was very good and well presented would recommend that you book though as saw people being turned away when arriving on speck.

And my mum had the Hake, she enjoyed it and wgat a big... More

Believe the reviews. Uncomplicated, good cooking. I have to eat gluten free which was a breeze here. Staff attentive and friendly. Thanks for a great meal. I'll certainly be back if in the area.
