“Lovely American 'New England' beach style cafe restaurant”
Reviewed 10 June 2010

Spending a week or two around Kingsbridge, Salcombe or Hope Cove and want a very pleasant evening then this will fit the bill perfectly. The staff are particularly friendly and the food excellent.. We've been visiting this part of Devon for a number of years now and this beachside cafe restaurant is the best we've come across in Salcombe. Even in May booking for evenings is essential to guarantee a table and it's bound to get very busy during the summer months. Also great for lunchtime dining or snacking with a great outdoor eating area in an American beach bar style, wonderful.

“worth a visit”
Reviewed 7 June 2010

Hi, we visited winking Prawn on several occassions during our stay in Salcombe, we ate outside at diner in the sun. This restaurant is just off the beach so the dress is casual beach wear and very relaxed. The seafood is great and the choice. We ate at night in the restaurant and also at the bbq outside both were great and very welcoming to families.

We (4 of us 2 vegetarian) visited the Winking Prawn twice whilst recently in Salcombe and could not ask for better. The staff were really helpful and courteous the BBQ food outside was great and the food inside (different menu) was also very good and had a nice atmosphere. We asked for bread and there was no issue! Very chilled place to have a nibble (I am not a drinker but the drinkers with me did mention that the beer wasn't the best around but was OK) Will hopefully get back there some time.
