The best in Looe

Well after a few visits to Looe we managed to book into the Old Sail Loft and were rather pleased, it has a lovely boutique old fishermans cottage feel with some really nice interior touches!! The bar is quaint and staff were pleasant. After being asked when placing booking if it was a special occasion and it happened to be... More

I was in Looe for a few days mid-May and discovered this restaurant on my second evening, coming back on the final one. Good service, welcoming, good food, and a very pleasant ambience. I had fish pie and later haddock, both very tasty and nicely prepared, a bit more money that average but worth paying for. Can definitely recommend for... More

We always book a table at the Old Sail Loft as soon as we know we are visiting Looe. We love the ambience and the food. Fresh fish, as you would expect in Looe, is always on the menu and served well. Book early and request the window table upstairs to watch the sun go down as you enjoy your... More

My husband and I visited the Old Sail Loft last night for our evening meal. It had been recommended by a friend and I have to say it exceeded our expectations. The location was fantastic, we had a window table that overlooked Looe harbour so we were able to watch the fishing boats coming in whilst relaxing between courses. The... More

We chose this eaterie based on reviews from trip advisor. First time visit was disappointed with the over priced and quality of food. Service was sub standard, with three out of the four meals arriving on time. There are better places in Looe to consider before this place.

We had been here 3 times previously since 2010 and it was our must eat place in Looe so was booked again. However, this may be the last time we visit now. Still had the lovely setting and good service. However, the food was not quite as nice as previous visits and the prices are very steep now (£30 for... More
