The chef insisted that we paid for our food at the bar before we sat down. I said this was unusual for a 'quality' restaurant and he said its because we might run off without paying......I then explained that my wife has a bad back and she was finding the very saggy worn out chairs (that were outside) were hurting...

We were traveling on a walking tour and wanted our last night dinner to be nicer than the pub originally booked. Being 10 of us we didn't have high hopes. Trawlers had space for us and so glad they did! Dinner was amazing - we all ordered 2 small plates each and some salad for the table. The fish was... More

Thank you so much for your post. We do our best to accommodate everyone and luck was on your side. It was on ours too as it is always a pleasure for the Trawlers team to serve such appreciative guests. Oh, and yes a certain waitress did blush when she realised it was her table that gave this lovely review. More

My partner and I visited Trawlers on the Quay on the evening of the 22nd of April and we're thankfully accommodated as we didn't book in advance. I couldn't find fault and everything from the waiting to the cooking was fantastic and I would recommend this Restraunt to any local or tourist in Looe. Top marks especially for the surf... More

Brilliant. The waiter was exellent; friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious, with a view as good as anywhere in the world. If you like seafood, this is the place for you.

Had a drink outside here on NYE while we waited for the early fireworks to start, love sitting by the quay and the weather was surprisingly mild for the time of year. We hadn't booked anywhere to eat and after looking at their fab menu we popped in to see if they could fit us in after the fireworks, they... More

Had fantastic service (brilliant waitress), good food and nice window view of the quay at this nice restaurant. We had found small portions between us, and this was plenty and meant excelletn value. The only fault would be the quality of chips, which clearly come out of a packet and are the same as my work canteen! Such a shame... More

Thank you for your kind review. Chef was clutching his apron with a look of shame on his face when he read it. He would like to assure you that this was just a blip and that we now source and cook the best chipping potatoes one can buy! More

Was passing through Looe for only 1 evening and I'm really glad me and my girlfriend chose to eat here. Great service, lovely atmosphere and most importantly AMAZING food. The only disappointment was the fact I couldn't try everything. If I'm ever in the area again will be coming back for sure.
