We visited Lyme a couple of weeks ago and decided to dine at Ocean View after a stroll along the front. We were met by friendly efficient staff, and the owner took the time to come and chat with us. The food was excellent, scallops cooked to perfection, and the fishcakes with dressing, were the tastiest ever. The experience was so good we dined here on two more occasions. In all this place is a gem, miss it at your peril! We certainly cannot recommend Ocean View highly enough. Well done and thanks for good food at reasonable prices.

Visited for dinner but very disappointed. First two dishes I selected on menu were unavailable despite it being early evening. When food did arrive the vegetables were overcooked and the meal was distinctly average. Very overpriced compared to excellent food I had in an Exeter restaurant night before - similar price, huge difference in quality. Okay the view is lovely overlooking the bay, but please don't rely on this.

Visited on a quiet rainy day and had a seafood platter & a bowl of Mussels in White wine sauce. A tasty meal well presented and more than enough too share. Staff were very attentive and service was quick. We will happily visit again

We booked Ocean View for a Mother's Day lunch - we had seen the poor reviews but decided not to be put off. We were right to be confident - we had a very friendly warm welcome, the food was lovely and very good value for money. The view was fantastic too - Lyme Regis at its best!

We stopped here on mothers day for a coffee and sat outside, the view was amazing, such a great spot and nice to see the Cobb from a different angle. The drinks were great, reasonably priced and the staff were very polite. We will definitely return!
