Awful

We are going back to Looe this year and will NOT visit this place again - it should be renamed 'Archies cheap supermarket and tinned food cafe'. My daughters burger was literally a cooked, cheap frozen burger, in a bun, with not so much as a hint of mayo or even a lettuce leaf. My cod, chips and... read more

Dear Reviewers, The restaurant is poor because the food is almost cold and when I went in August the restaurant was empty which wasn't a good sign. I had fish and chips the chips where cold by the time I ate the fish and my gran had a burger which was stone cold and my sister had nuggets and chips... More

I ate an amazing Sea Bream...fresh, cooked to perfection with Salad and boiled potatoes. The service was excellent. The two ladies serving at the dinner room have always excelled to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. Thank you for such a lovely time in such a beautiful place.

Just stopped off for fresh crab sandwich and it was very nice and well presented, in fact all the food that came out looked good.

To say all the food is cooked to order is questionable, 12oz gammon was thin, hard and tasteless, peas greyer than the foggy day we visited, mussels despite being an adequate portion were overcooked and half unopened, pizzas not cut through properly. Wish we'd checked reviews beforehand would have saved us the disappointment.

Looe is a bit spoiled for choice as far as food goes and we wish we'd picked anywhere but here! It was empty which should have been a clue but we'd missed the lunchtime rush so put it down to being October and Looe not being very busy. Sat down at a very clean table, the plastic tablecovers should have... More

After waking around Looe like lost sheep trying to find somewhere to sit down and have a full english breakfast we came upon Archies. Welcomed by a friendly member of staff we sat at our table and ordered two full breakfast. It was served to us surprisingly quite quickly. Wasn't anything special but it filled a hole. We would return.
