We went to Neil's in July 2015 and I couldn't fault the place. We have pretty high expectations when it comes to dining out, and we weren't disappointed. The food was amazing - perfectly cooked, lovely flavours and decent portions. We also found the price reasonable - none of the sneaky extras you sometimes find (sides charged at an additional...

We went last night based on the TA reviews and we weren't disappointed. Fresh Crab from Beer and fish from Brixham. Lovely flavours, great presentation and kind, efficient service. Hope to return during our stay and highly recommend. You need to book

We had a wonderful meal here this past weekend - everything was excellent. The scallops were cooked to perfection, the hake with a crab and coriander crumb was very tasty, my father-in-law loved the skate wing and the cod with garlic mash will be my choice next time! If you love fish - you'll love Neil's!

Had an evening meal at Neil's last night. We are visiting from London Really cold not find anything to fault with it. Fantastic seafood, great wine and top class service made this the best meal out we have had in a long time. Smoked salmon was the best i have eaten anywhere. Visit if you can

Busy and popular small restaurant (so booking essential!) specialising in fish - superb value especially for early birds. We ate twice in our week in sidmouth and were not disapppointed. Service really helpful and atmosphere very cosy.

A super fish restaurant with a varied and well prepared range of fresh dishes. Definitely for fish lovers with a very limited range of alternatives for those less keen on sea food. Friendly and attentive staff and good value. Busy from early evening even midweek so booking advisable.

Had great meal here whilst on holiday in Sidmouth, food and service excellent. Staff understood menu well and advised me on choice due to minor allergy. Decor nice, tables not too close together, would definitely visit again if/when we return to Sidmouth.

The previous Tripadvisor reviews brought me to this restaurant and it certainly didn't disappoint. Quick and efficient service and excellent seafood perfectly cooked. Worth booking a table before 7pm to take advantage of the 20% discount, not the cheapest restaurant in Sidmouth but the best,

We were on holiday in Sidmouth & ate here on the Saturday night. Had to have fish for both courses, food was amazing & service was very good, fresh crab starter & mango was to die for. Would definitely recommend here.
