“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

We had spent a day on the beach, were hungry, did not want to travel too far and came across this little gem. The menu, although not extensive was varied and the two young waitresses were very attentive.

I have a passion for mussels and I was not let down by a generous portion with white wine sauce and fresh bread.

Would definetly recommend

“Excellent bistro food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We were very glad we had booked a table at this charming but very small bistro/café, as although it was a Tuesday evening several would-be diners were turned away. We enjoyed a lovely meal with wine and were served very efficiently by a very busy young lady who was charming despite being rushed off her feet. A definite must if you are in Budleigh Salterton, it's the best in town.

“Close to the seafront with varied menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Quite a small cafe but enough space around the tables so you don't feel crowded. Several choices on the menu and friendly service - excellent crab salad!!

“Small but good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

A slice of Lyme is not the biggest restaurant in the area being basically 2 living rooms with 4/5 tables per room but on a warm evening it still felt cool and not at all crowded. The menu is not too long and there was a nice range of specials and was a good mixture of fresh fish and meats and my daughter says it's ok for vegetarians. Deserts looked yummy but definitely not for small portioners or diabetics. The wine menu was short but OK in its range and price.
Most importantly the service was excellent the sole young lady on duty was very busy, very efficient and very friendly, despite rushing around, nothing seemed too much trouble and we weren't rushed. This sort of service can make so much difference to an evening out and she got it just right.
All in all a lovely evening and would strongly recommend but suspect booking is a must at weekends and in the high season.
