“Great Birthday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

Tried to book for what turned out to be a very busy August evening. Fully booked but they managed to squeeze us in by juggling things around and phoning us back. So glad they did. Daughters birthdays and they let us bring the cake in earlry and they brought it out at the end of the meal. The food and atmosphere was great. Some of the foos such as the calamari starter was obviously bought in and was identical to others we had seen in the area but the bulk of the food appeared to have been cooked in house and was great. Good range including pizza, pasta and seafood. Service good, not easy to achieve when it was so busy. Glad we came and will be back. Sadly as we left we saw a large empty table which had been laid in expectation of a party arriving who had not. I suspect this was a consequence of the appalling strategy adopted by some visitors to Salcome who book tables at a number of restaurants and then decide last minute which one they will go to. If you do this and are reading this THEN STOP, it's selfish and not fair on the restauranteurs and other customers who might want to eat there. We were lucky but might not have been.

Hi Baszunia
We all remember you well and are all over the moon that you enjoyed the overall experience with us. Booking tables and not turning up is what happens here its what all of us in this trade in Salcombe have to put up with during certain times of the year. But hopefully you will all be back again sooner than later! from Cheryl,Peter and the team we look forwards to seeing you and again many thanks for your kind words.

“A good all-rounder”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

No55 serves good tasty food, well cooked and served with a smile. It's not fancy, and it doesn't aim to be haute cuisine, but it doesn't need to be. If you are looking for a nice meal, at a reasonable price in pleasant surroundings - this could be the place for you.

“A Salcombe must visit!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

We recently ate at No55 and can not recommend it enough. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was relaxed and the new owners were extremely attentive. The husband wife combo were really fantastic and helpful talking us through the menu.

We ate at a number of more expensive restaurants in Salcombe however, we left No55 having enjoyed it the most.

We would definitely recommend this restaurant if in Salcombe.

“A great eating experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

8 of us had booked based on previous reviews, the Monday before Christmas at the start of our holiday and we were not disappointed. One of our group is coeliac and on our arrival to the really quirky restaurant the waiter presented her with a list of everything she could have off the menu and she was very happy with the choices. We all had something different including desserts and we all cleared our plates. Also one of our group who travelled down separately arrived as were finishing desserts and made him very welcome with a dish of his choice.

Although we were the only diners there was a great ambience, friendly and attentive service and it was a great start to Christmas. We would highly recommend No 55 and wish them continued success.
