We were recommended this restaurant by relatives who had visited previously. Being on holiday we wanted somewhere nice to celebrate my birthday. We were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is quite quirky which provides a lot of atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and although the menu was limited as it was between Christmas and new year, there was something... More

Maybe we visited on a bad night, but struggled to cater for gluten fee even though they were advised on booking. Service was poor & unfriendly, done of the food was good standard but the VFM wasn't ! Wouldn't rush back

I went for a meal yesterday lunchtime. The staff were friendly and professional - they dealt with an extremely awkward customer (think the person had severe mental health issues) in a fantastic manner without the customer bothering other customers. The food was cooked and presented beautifully. I would go there again when I am next in Looe. Thank you to... More

Like some of the other reviewers, this would have been our first or second choice is Looe every time. Having not been down for over 2 years we were unaware that it had changed hands until we walked in. Comely but clueless waitress, under-spiced and seasoned food and poor value. I fear the deep fat fryer is too busy here... More

Looking for somewhere to have an enjoyable lunch and we tried the Trawlers on the Quay, quite busy given it was November and relatively quiet around the town. Service was friendly and helpful, the food was great and thoroughly we enjoyed the local crab, the Mackerel Pate was good too, was a little pricey though worth it for the occasional... More

I visited trawlers to see the change in menu,I was greeted by a friendly waitress who got one a table and drinks. I order the creamy scrambled duck eggs and the whole bass, both the starter and main were gorgeous a perfect winter warmer. For the dessert I had the gorgeous lemon posset which topped off a perfect evening. Great... More

Everything that was good about this restaurant was spoiled by serving good hot food on very cold plates. Tasty food, nice staff and service but nothing special.

Walking past on a sunny Saturday afternoon we fancied a cold beer . Menu very tempting but too early for us . Sat outside and ordered 2 beers and a coke £ 11.60? Needless to say , we only had one . I sometimes wonder if there's one price for holiday makers and another for the locals

Called in on the off chance and was found a table for 2. The food was excellent and the staff wonderful. The food was cooked fresh and the flavours were out of this world. Try the sardines they were so special and the chips were very very good. Would recommend that you book as this place is so special it... More
