Description: Welcome to Squid Ink restaurant situated in the historic fishing port of Looe in South East Cornwall.This intimate 28 cover restaurant is chef owned and opened in July 2008. Housed within a character filled period building the decor is a fusion of contemporary and antique offering an eclectic blend of old and new.Looe is a pretty seaside town and important Cornish port selling mainly day caught fish from small trawlers, netting boats and line fishing boats, where the highest EU quality level of E (excellent) is electronically `attached' to almost every box of fish. Day boats are considered one of the more sustainable ways to fish, and they also provide the freshest fish (it hasn't been sitting on a boat that has been at sea for a week or more).We are committed to offering outstanding service our menu includes a dietary key indicating which dishes may not be suitable for allergy sufferers or those just wishing to avoid certain foods such as dairy. If however you have any additional dietary requirements you are welcome to discuss them with the chef who will endeavour to accommodate them.

We tried to get a table here in 2013 but they were booked, so we went to Trawlers instead. However we didn't make the same mistake again and booked well in advance, glad we did, it was superb. We had the 3 course menu, lots to choose from and all cooked to perfection. We had a variety in our selection,... More

My boyfriend and I visited Squid Ink last weekend on a short break to Looe. After seeing the great reviews on trip advisor I decided to book ahead and was glad that I did, as quite a few people came in while we were there and had to be turned away. When we arrived, we were shown to the bar... More
