No55 in Salcombe has to be the best meal we've ever had. There was a relaxed ambience to the restaurant where you received food in a good time but were in no way rushed to eat and leave, like with many others. The food was beautifully presented (attached some photos) but wasn't ostentatious in any way just excellent produce and prepared with true care.

The front of house staff make you feel as if you are a friend visiting them. The restaurant feels very "open" with light background music and every table was having a great time, chatting and laughing and enjoying superbly fresh locally sourced food. It has a very modern feel with clean lines and tables that don't feel close together and a great selection of wine and the prosecco cocktail was perfect for hot weather!

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the Front of House Manager was a delight, she couldn't do more to make your visit the best it could be. The chef produces incredible meals, we had 3 starters between us because we couldn't decide and I'm glad we opted to try meals we wouldn't normally have as the cod loin on lobster bisque was superb. What we liked was we'd had an incredible meal, enjoyed the ambience and location but didn't feel stuffed as we have elsewhere so we could enjoy amazing puddings too which we never have elsewhere.

I cannot think of anywhere else to eat in Salcombe, maybe even Devon - it's worth making the trip but as we found out - you have to book in advance if you can as the phone never stopped ringing for bookings.

Try it soon - you will not be disappointed!

My daughter chose this restuarant for her birthday holiday meal by 'walking' through Salcombe on streetview.
We were called post booking to be told that the place had changed hands. The new owners sounded lovely so we stuck with the booking.
The meal was fantastic and the place is warm, trendy and welcoming.
The food is cooked fresh to order so don't expect a massive selection or instant, but do expect tasty and piping hot.
It was so good we visited again during our weeks stay and tried different meals. We met the owners who are great, one of whom is the chef who greeted us before going to cook our meal. The house red was more than acceptable. These new owners deserve every success. Very very nice, we will be back next year :-)

After spending a good half an hour looking at restaurants to have dinner No.55 was our choice. We had a table on the upper floor which was what we wanted. The restaurant was quirky and the staff were welcoming and fun. The food exceeded are expectations and the dessert was phenomenal. We enjoyed our meal a lot and it was probably one of the best meals out we have had together which topped off our superb stay in Salcombe.

Thank Will G

We found this lovely Italian restaurant by accident and were really pleased we did. We only had one course as it was lunchtime and we both chose pizza. They were delicious and as good as anything I have had in Italy. The wine we chose to go with it was very nice too. The owners were there and it was obvious they had not been open long and they chatted to us about their plans. If we are ever in Salcombe again, we will definitely return. NB. there is a lovely large table on the balcony area which would be great for a celebration meal.
