Mixed review from our party...

We visited Archie's for our evening meal and our party gave mixed reviews depending on their choice of meal. I felt the restaurant lacked any atmosphere, there were a few other tables in use but the restaurant soon emptied. The service wasn't particularly unfriendly but lacked personality.

Had lunch and evening meals at Archie's. Really enjoyed the lamb roast dinner, hot well cooked and large portion. Tried the cod and chips and again not disappointed. Very friendly staff and nothing too much travel. Definitely use again when next in Looe.

Unpretentious diner but offerring an excellent range of dishes.I settled for a homemade lasagne but did consider a crab salad. This is clearly a good place for children with something for the most determined and fussy child. It is not obvious from outside that the restaurant is licensed.

Went for an evening meal in Looe whilst on holiday. Hadn't booked anywhere so wandered up the high street to see what took our fancy. Initially when we entered the restaurant I didn't have high expectations as the layout and decor had quite a cafe feel to it, however I was pleasantly suprised. Had deep fried camenbert for starter, was... More

As far as cafes go this place isn't so bad. You probably wouldn't want to have a nice evening meal here, but if you've not made any plans then it'll do. I didn't fancy going in because you could see the terrible plastic table covers from the street which screamed out "cheap and tacky", but I honestly wasn't feeling fussed... More

After a great day trip out to Looe, we were looking for a child friendly place to have an early evening meal with our 3 year old. I should have read the signs when I realised A) My mobile battery had died so I couldn't read the reviews for this place B) As we walked in, the place was empty... More

We visited early evening today, not having read the reviews first. People already eating in there so we decided to give it a go. Stilton burger and lightly battered chicken burger was ordered and very good it was. Admittedly there was no salad to nibble, only cress on the side, but that went on top of the chicken with some...

Was then offered a gluten free menu, what a laugh, burger, no roll or chips just new potatoes, its not difficult to get gluten free rolls, I didnt bother reading... More

Had a lobster and crab burger, imagine my disappointment when the burger arrived within a bun with tasteless chips. No garnish/salad, no sauce, just totally dry wafer thin burger, served with absolutely no imagination. Then my disappointment grew when I discovered my burger was crunchy with bits of shell. Nothing looked as if it had been prepared on site or... More

Yesterday we took our grandson out for a day trip to Looe. We saw the menu outside of Archies and decided to go in for lunch. Bad choice. The tuna and mayo jacket potato contained hardly any tuna and was packed out with a cheap mayonnaise, the jacket potato was dry. My partner ordered the jacket potato with cheese and... More
