A warm welcome

This was a restaurant of 2 halves for us. If I had been just rating the food it would have been 5 stars all the way but a few things let it down. Our welcome couldn't have been warmer by the man I believe was the owner. We were sat at a table with the Sun streaming in and it... read more

such a great location on the quay side in Looe, I was attracted by the history of the building and the look of the place. the description of the menu and how the business had been set up also attracted me to book a table. I liked the personal service by the waiting team, without interrupting our evening. the ambience... More

Just back from a lovely meal at the Sail Loft. 3 courses each, bottle of wine, two beers and water. £63 - excellent value. Service was great too and we were lucky to have a wonderful view of the Quay. We will be back!

We didn't eat here but stopped for a pint as there is a small area to sit outside. Inside is done up really nice and the staff are very friendly.

Celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary here....what a fab place! Wanted to visit a couple of years ago when we stayed in Looe but didn't get chance and so glad that we made it this time! Food is spot on, friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. We will be back for sure when we visit the area again. Amazing! 😊

We visited the Restaurant whilst on holiday in Looe, there were 3 adults in our party the total bill for 3 beers, 2 starters and 3 main course meals, came to £78+ but the portions of food on the plates was minimal for the cost per plate. Worst of all, the service in the restaurant was very slow. The table... More

This is probably the best restaurant in Looe for food, atmosphere and perfect hosts. We ended up visiting several times (evening and lunch times). The menu is fish orientated being located close to the fish market, although there are non fish dishes as well. The catch of the day is always a good recommendation - my wife had mackerel fillets...

My husband and I had a rare treat and had the opportunity for a night out while grandparents babysat. We were on holiday near Looe and read various reviews for restaurants in the area before deciding on the old sail loft. We are really pleased we chose this restaurant as we had a lovely evening. The staff were attentive and... More

The food was good but the service was a worry to start with. We arrived early so asked for coffee and sat outside. The promised waitress to take our order failed to arrive after ten minutes. I chased. There was no apology but a pleasant girl took our order and coffees eventually arrived. Service at lunch was much better and... More

Eaten here many times in the past and always been really pleased. Was our favourite restaurant in Looe. Went there twice this week and was really disappointed. Staff and ambience still good but the food was poor. Thought the first time was just an off day but tonight the meat was tough and the vegetables undercooked. A real shame.
