“Very Good indeed”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

This was our first trip to this restaurant and will not be our last. The food was lovely and the fish (sea bass) cooked perfectly - and one of the freshest fishes I have ever tasted. I loved the pernod sauce that came with the fish, not too heavy. My husband's steak was also done exactly as he liked it. Special mention must also go to the Lemon Tart dessert. It was wonderful, quite tart but balanced by the sweet berry sauce that came with it and great pastry. The Chef Olivier came and spoke to us after service. We had a great chat about fishing and also scuba diving around the Jurassic coast. I was trying to find out where he dives for scallops ;-) We also met some very nice diners who were local to the area and visit the restaurant frequently and our waiter was good too…. Not cheap but when gets what one pays for here. We will definitely be back when in the area again. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic food, friendly service would give ten stars if it was allowed”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 via mobile

We had such a lovely evening in this gorgeous restaurant. Pretty and relaxed setting, enthusiastic and knowledgeable waiting staff and the food was just fantastic. Everything on the menu was tempting but I was extremely pleased with my choice of delicious Exmouth mussels and soft pink lamb. Waiter and waitress couldn't do enough and ran the dining room brilliantly. Lovely wine too. Can't recommend it enough. Try it!

Great favours and truly lovely food. We even chatted to the chef, it was a lovely meal with just that little but more. Excellent.

“Disappointing menu for a seafood restaurant.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Sorry to go against the bulk of reviews, but for a restaurant that advertises as a seafood restaurant, in a Devon coastal resort, near a source of fresh fish, having only 2 fish dishes on the mains menu, was very disappointing. Otherwise staff were helpful and friendly, but let's have a more inspiring menu!
