NEW OWNERS - Very Enjoyable Evening

Yes the Owners have changed and its always a quandary re visiting. Menu far more varied if you cant eat seafood or fish, however the fish side is limited. Really friendly and we had an enjoyable evening and would revisit on next trip. Shame they are shut Mondays.

We arrived here on a busy Saturday evening, after a long journey. We enquired about a table and the friendly waitresses accommodated us and made us most welcome. We were given a carafe of water and fresh bread and olives to nibble on while we waited for the first course. The roasted field mushrooms with cheese topping were ideal for... More

The staff were very polite and attentive and the quality of the surroundings were very good. That said, the menu was very limited and the quality of the wood and size of portions were only average, we were disappointed given the previous reviews we had seen. other restaurants in Lynmouth are better.

My wife and I were visiting the area and thought of trying this place for dinner. The staff member was friendly and we really enjoyed the food. Abit pricey but well worth it.

This was our first visit since the new owners have taken over. The food was excellent as was the service and the atmosphere it made for a very enjoyable evening and we will certainly be going back as soon as possible. We wish them every success.

I would strongly recommend this place. Perfect service and food, reasonably priced. But check there are tables available in advance – the place is tiny.

Based on recommendations on TripAdvisor I tried to book here. My request wasn't acknowledged and the phone number appears not to be in operation. Is this restaurant still open?

Lovely little bistro on Watersmeet just on the edge of the town. Car parking adjacent. Try the scallops and pancetta or the Pan Fried Bream which is mouth-wateringly fresh and beautifully crisp on the outside, served with wilted spinach a choice of potatoes and vegetables. House wine was very good. A great place to hole up on a cold night... More
