Not cheap but worth the price. Good choice of fish, beautifully cooked. It was very busy on the evening we went but service was good. My only minus was that it was very warm in there. Our table was on a raised area and maybe this was the reason.

The best fish restaurant we have visited, the service and food was delicious, I had the sea bass with risotto which was delicious, my husband chose a starter of crab & mango salad and monkfish for a main which was also delicious, there was a good selection of vegetables, the desserts were also delicious. We did not dislike anything.

Our meal here has to be of the most enjoyable we have had for quite a while! Service was excellent. Restaurant was busy even though it was a Tuesday evening and we will definitely call in again. Best to book though! We started with lovely giant king prawns with some of the most tasty bread we have eaten. My husband... More

We live locally and know Neils but have not visited recently.My Wife and I enjoyed a three course dinner to celebrate a birthday and the Restaurant is certainly worth it's excellent reputation.The main course Sea Bass for myself and Sole for my Wife were cooked to perfection although the vegetables were perhaps unexciting.Starters and sweets do not appear to get...

Fresh seafood prepared and presented perfectly by friendly staff in a smart little establishment. Delicious! If there has to be a dislike, the vegetables served were uninspiring, especially compared to the seafood....but who really wants vegetables anyway.......

I have visited Sidmouth many times over the years on holiday and the village whilst beautiful with a plethora of tea rooms it does lack a decent choice of proper restaurants hence i usually travel out of town to dine in the evening. I have passed Neil's on countless occasions but not being a big seafood fan and the menu... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Neil's. We love seafood so were spoilt for choice as the menu is packed with all kinds of locally-sourced aquatic goodies. What's on offer each day depends on what is available at the fish market so there's no guarantees about what will be on the menu but based on our experience you're in for... More

I have rarely eaten better fish anywhere. Everything beautifully fresh and imaginatively prepared. Not exactly cheap but worth every penny

We visited Neils on the second night of our stay at Woodlands. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed. Fortunately we had booked (online). The restaurant seemed to have lots of regulars always a good sign. The welcome and service was excellent bettered only by the food. We had prawn fritters followed by Sea Bass for myself... More
