Stilted service lacked genuine warmth. Strained atmosphere. Good starters, mediocre main courses of cheap cuts of grilled fish at a premium price. Toilets right opposite kitchen, very off putting. Good takeaway at rear. There are much better options in Dartmouth itself. Rockfish restaurant or Kendrick's can be highly recommended.

We had a very tasty fish and chip meal on New Year's day with a very nice fish starter and an orange ice cream sweet (made by the Chef) to die for.
Looking forward to our next visit to the Dartmouth area and another visit to the 'Brill Plaice'

This great place (pun intended) is a real gem. In the front is a regular restaurant, but at the back is the best fish and chips for miles around - and that's saying something this close to the coast. Freshly cooked while you wait, you really feel your dinner was still swimming earlier on, it is so fresh and tasty. Great value, and a great find.

The menu was the same as usual, varied and interesting. The prices were not elevated for New Year and the food was beautifully cooked. it was a good evening out.

We live locally so already eat frequently at the Brill Plaice Restaurant and we are regulars for their take away fish and chips (behind and below the main restaurant) which we consider the best and freshest in the Dartmouth area. However, RIchard and his staff really excelled for our U3A Walkers Christmas Party. They opened for our group on the Monday lunchtime and 21 of us were treated to delicious choices from their very reasonably priced published three course Christmas menu including coffee and home made fudge to finish. Everything is made by Richard including wonderful bread and home made ice-creams. His sticky toffee pudding is to die for. All said it was the best meal they'd had out for a long time. The staff were friendly and efficient and we were all served at the same time. Bottles of water and glasses on the tables were there without asking and the restaurant was tastefully decorated for the Holidays and included Christmas crackers! Thank you Richard - those in our group who had not eaten at the Brill Plaice before told us they would be back. Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.
