I last visited this restaurant (Higher Market Street, Looe PL13 1BW, England) on Sunday 8th October. The restaurant, which is right across the narrow street from another great restaurant Ocean & Earth (see my review) is likewise small but comfortable and is small and intimate.
I've visited this restaurant in its previous guise when it was "Morrell's", and the food was always excellent.
Under new management it became The Ancient Mariner Bistro, and was not so; so I stopped visiting.
I wasn't aware that it had changed management again and I think I've been missing out!
We had booked and we were seated straight away and our drinks were served quickly. The waitress (not Mel the chef's wife and co-owner who had been detained by traffic) was very friendly and attentive.
The menu is not extensive, but the food and service were excellent.
The chef and owner Mark came out to talk to everyone who was seated and chatted about the food.
We had the Trio of Scallops with Pea Shoots and Sweetcorn puree to start and I the John Dory for the main course. All was superb!
I will definitely dine here again on my next trip from Cardiff to Looe which is quite I do quite often.
