Description: Fine food, exotic cocktails and stunning views. A fine restaurant and a proper bar all with an uninterrupted view of the sea. Open all year round, come and visit for a coffee or some cocktails with friends, a long lunch with loved ones or a dinner feast with the family; it is the idyllic 'Best of British' destination come rain or shine…

Confused menu - some tapas, some pizza, some roast style mains. Pizza was fine, the pork and duck mains were ok but served with sad looking vegetables

We sat upstairs at the far end of the restaurant in a slightly enclosed area. We have an incredible view of the ocean lapping up on the shore and spent most of the meal time watching the waves splash people as they walked by. The food was absolutely fine, however we couldn't help me feel disappointed when looking at the quality of the restaurant and the view itself. Also the portion sizes were very reserved and we felt slightly overcharged for what we received. The waiting staff were very helpful and wonderful, however the use of technology when taking an order seemed to take longer than the usual approach.

We booked two tables for 9 and 5 as fourteen of us are on holiday together . Warm welcome upstairs with fantastic sea views. Very relaxed atmosphere. Service friendly, arrival of food a little slow. Quality of meals was good both main courses and desserts. We were eating early and with small children so were not looking for a dining experience, but we all had a good time and the prices were reasonable.

We stayed in Westward Ho! for 2 weeks at the end of July and loved this place so much we returned 3 more times! We are amazed at the negative experiences and comments made by people but note that they are mostly about pizzas ordered downstairs. We ate in the restaurant upstairs because of the amazing sea views and had great meals every time, in fact we asked to speak to the chef about his gourmet creations. He came out to speak to us on a very busy evening and I said I particularly liked the smoked duck and pink grapefruit starter, it was different and very tasty. The duck with corn reduction was also very good. My husband enjoyed his fillet steak which was perfectly cooked. All the staff were friendly and courteous and Andrea was very good at running a busy ship. Nothing was too much trouble, he paid the right amount of attention to us. We will definitely go there again during our next visit to Devon. The only gripe I do have, which another reviewer mentioned, was the morning opening time for food which wasn't until 12 o'clock. This really surprised us especially at the height of the summer season. Can't wait to return.

Did not book a table but a member of staff took her time to check her booking form and said a table for four had become vacant. Suggested we had a drink so they could get it laid up for us. By the time we got our drinks it was ready. Our order was taken and it was well worth waiting for. I had their king prawn and scallop pizza which was gorgeous. The rest of the party had steaks which they said were cooked to perfection. Our two friends who we took with us were on holiday from the USA and said it was the best steaks they had had for a long time. Our only disappointment was we were too full for a dessert. Well done to the staff and chefs for their great hospitality.
