We went to Lynton at lunchtime today and stumbled upon this super little cafe! Serving an eclectic mix of local fare and Turkish Mezze, all simple, but of an extremely high standard. Staff were delightful, but unobtrusive. An unexpectedly cosmopolitan delight in this out of the way place!

Recommended by our hosts,for its location - very close to the centre of Lynton - and its menu.

We ate at the Vanilla Pod on 3 consecutive nights in July without having made a reservation. We were made very welcome by Yana and Szilvia, and treated like old friends. The food was excellent and very good value for money. We would certainly call again if and when we are in the area.

We were recommended by Sinai House to come to this friendly, cosy restaurant. We enjoyed the locally sourced steaks cooked perfectly. We received good service. Thank you for a lovely evening

My partner and I found this restaurant when wandering around Lynton on a Saturday night. It was quite early - 6:30pm so despite a few 'reserved' labels on the table, they were able to accommodate us really easily. We each had a started. I had spiced chickpeas and it was really nice. For main, I ordered the haddock and some... More

This meal was a treat for the last day of a 5 night break, it did not disappoint, service very good and food was wonderful, had the surf and turf as a main course, followed by the rhubarb and ginger pudding, it was really delicious.

We ate here last September and loved it so much we wanted to return. Great little restaurant with an interesting menu. Attentive service in relaxing surroundings. The food is expertly cooked and presented.
