Absolutely delightful restaurant with attentive and friendly staff. The February menu is real value for money. Highly recommend the mussels (sweet and juicy), the Catalan stew (rich and tasty) and the cheese selection (an explosion of flavour) all washed down with a bottle of Prosecca. Lovely!

My husband recently surprised me with a birthday trip to Looe and booked our favourite restaurant-'The Sail Loft' for my birthday dinner. What can I say- only that this restaurant has never failed us. We have visited several times before and the food is always of a high standard with locally sourced produce innovative menus and delicious mouth watering food... More

Excellent dining for a group of friends on a very cold night! Although off season, a broad menu on offer, well presented. New staff in training coped well with our indecision over menu choices! Wine list to suit all tastes. A thoroughly convivial evening all round. Likely a very popular restaurant so advise booking in high season.

this restaurant has been here for years and has stood the test of time. The food is always great, service has always been above average apart from one time. We have sat upstairs and downstairs. Upstairs is a lot lot warmer and nicer. Prices are what you would expect

Limited winter menu, but the food is exquisite. The fish is locally sourced and beautifully cooked. The atmosphere is full of Cornish charm and the staff could not be more welcoming or helpful.

Very nice reception room. Main dining room upstairs was warm and comfortable spacing. Food was good as recommended although the service during our visit was a little lacking in experience, nothing serious though.

We booked in advance and was so pleased we did. Although it was freezing outside, hail,sleet and a bitterly cold Northern wind, the restaurant was packed. The seafood chowder was one of the nicest dishes I've eaten and the Staff were friendly and polite. The Old Sail Loft is full of charm and loveliness and we'd recommend it to anyone.

Last here in September and, with no other competitors at this time of year) we returned for dinner on a Friday evening. The chilly winter weather made for an equally chilly table upstairs and a 30 minute wait for the switch to be found for the heating. Putting it bluntly, the menu pretty uninspiring and more pub-like than our previous... More

Always been a regular visit on our annual holiday, usually a great place to eat. This year, although good, just felt something was different.. Not quite the usual high standards. What's changed?
