I don't usually write reviews, but this was so good it warrants praise. We travel all over the world and this was one of the best meals we have enjoyed any where for a long time. We had the set £15 menu at lunch. To start we both had mussels, best ever being large and very tasty. My wife then... More

Excellent choice - try the lemon sole wrapped in pancetta stuffed with crab and with chorizo, hash brown and served with a seafood reduction - really good 'seafood heaven on a plate'.

Even without a booking we were able to have a table on a busy saturday night. The food looked it excellent and the service was fine. Even the traditional "fish'n chips" is a real feast dish. The portions are more than satisfying and the 2 white wines we had were excellent and well priced. In fact, it was so good... More

We started our holiday in Looe with a return visit to the Old Sail Loft. By booking in advance (essential in the busy summer months) we had a table just outside the front door that meant we could eat with our four toy poodles sitting under the table. The staff were very helpful with this arrangement and made a fuss... More

We booked a table a week in advance for the following Friday but it's so popular had to take a 6pm table. However we had a 2hr slot and it was amazing. We selected the set menu option of 3 courses for £20. The choice of 3 options per course was fine and all of us enjoyed our selection. The... More

We managed to book the last table on a Monday evening and it was busy! We had seafood chowder, scallops on chicory with a bloody Mary sauce and balsamic vinegar, followed by tomato crusted hake and seafood tagliatelle. All the meals were lovely and the service was excellent. We were very impressed.

My partner and myself have been going to Looe for the past thirteen years and going to The Old Sail Loft is our special treat. We always try to book the window seat which over looks the sea it's just perfect and as the evening goes on so do the pretty light all around the bay. We have never had... More
