Disappointing

Sadly we were unimpressed with our lunch. The food was well cooked but unimaginatively presented. We had veggie burger and chips which could have had a little salad included for the price. The price was expensive for what it was and other people are offering much better value for money which we... read more

Staff were very courteous and efficient with drinks and food arriving quickly. The starter course came with a decent amount of fresh french bread, which seems to be a rarity these days. The main course was a very large lasagne which was most definitely produced on premises. Very tasty and chips were good as well. Didn't strike me as being... More

We had dinner with six there and ordered several different things, but none of them was up to standards. The fish and chips had horribly greasy batter and tasteless chips. The veggie burger had no vegetables on it what so ever, not even a little bit as garnish on the plate. And the carbonara tasted terribly plain.

I was half way through my pint of coke when I saw the glass had lipstick left on it!!! At this point we ought to have left but didn't. Our jacket potatoes were microwaved hard in the middle the plate was hotter than the food!!! Over £17 for a coke a hot chocolate and two spuds. Do not I repeat... More

We visited on Wednesday night and after walking around Looe looking for somewhere to eat, we picked Archies, What an inspired choice, this place is casual but tidy, it was nearly full which for a mid week in April is pretty good. The service was friendly, efficient and relaxed. We went straight for the main course and had a fish... More

We popped in for some take aways pizzas as advertised. Never felt so disappointed and ripped off. They were tiny, rock hard, tastes terrible and cheap and in no way fresh. We visit Looe every year, but will never ever visit Archie's agsin or recommend.

Very good food and service. A little more over budget than we anticipated, but well worth the money. The food was excellent - there was nothing left on our plates at all.

Went in for lunch with the family. Chips were cooked on outside but frozen in middle. Plate was chipped and glasses were dirty. Young waitress was okay, but older lady had a face like thunder and we were scared to complain. Should have realised how bad it was as it was only place in Looe with free tables. Lesson learned,...

We called into Archie's for a meal during bank holiday weekend. It wasn't very busy but it was 4pm. The service was excellent and attentive, the food was delivered piping hot and very tasty.
