...and the location is spectacular. The view is stunning, especially from the outside areas. Service is patchy - something of an achievement when ordering from a counter - and pricing is typically Salcombe.

A long time after the event memories of a lazy June lunch still bring back a smile. The danger of a trendy seaside foodie venue is that it burns bright for a season and then the founders move on to develop something new. The multi year glowing reviews indicate the Winking Prawn is maintaining standards and has staying power. We... More

We walked to the Winking Prawn from the South Sands Hotel. It is the perfect distance both before and after supper. A nice alternative for a delicious casual meal. Lovely staff and lots of foam shrimps for the coat pocket on the way home!

Fantastic location near to South Sands with eating either inside or out..we were there half-term (October) so inside. Very Martha's Vineyard decor...beach themed. Food great, service good although we did eat at 6.00 (4yr old granson) who also thoroughly enjoyed a plate of 10 large prawns. Close to town and good walk back to town if your feeling fit!
