Perfect evening meal

Chose this restaurant having seen the lovely decor and tasty sounding menu, and must say first impressions did not disappoint. We took our 22 month old and were made to feel very welcome by the lovely staff (perhaps below review was just unfortunate?) they even went out of their way to get the... read more

We had viewed the outside menu board from the first day we arrived in Looe and it has some interesting things to try. Everytime we went to eat there it was closed. Then one afternoon we walked passed and it was open, we went in and spoke to the chef behind the bar who welcomed us. As we studied the... More

We've eaten at Trawlers twice in the last fortnight. The food and service was so good last week, we booked again! We received a great welcome and drinks orders were taken promptly. There is an excellent selection of Cornish Ale and good wine. Not forgetting the Estrella!! Our group enjoyed Chicken Escalope, Monkfish and Bass - all three were great!... More

We decided to have an early dinner one evening and this restaurant looked lovely. We had our 11 month old daughter with us, there was nobody inside the restaurant (a few people outside having drinks), so we thought we would go inside. We immediately felt very uncomfortable and thought they may have a 'no child' policy. However, this seemed to... More

Recently came here after being recommended by a countless amount of people all commending the restaurant. Booked myself and a few friends a table to hopefully see what all the fuss was about. When we first got here it was very busy and it's no wonder why! Everything from the service to the food was amazing. Since we're down Looe... More

Up until about a year ago, Trawlers was a lovely restaurant. Good food, stylish modern decor, well run and good service. So we booked a table for dinner on our latest visit. Big mistake. First impressions were that the place is now a shadow of its former self. It looks quite run down, dark and in a poor state of... More

Three weeks ago, we booked a table at Trawlers for tonight (23/6). Turned up tonight looking forward to a lovely dinner and the restaurant is closed. Looking in the window it seems nowhere near being open. What's happened? It appears to have closed down even though their website is saying open tonight from 6.30. Very very disappointing

This restaurant has changed hands a couple of times since we last ate there. They still do choice of large or small plates. We had a small plate and then a large one which was one of the specials. I had lamb, I know lamb is expensive these days, but £18.50 for 4 small slices of lamb I thought was... More
