Description: We are open for dinner Monday to Saturday evenings. Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since 1990. The restaurant is in an beautiful position with views of the bustling harbour.The Tudor beams and stone walls of the listed building have a traditional feel but are complemented by contemporary decor. The food is very definitely in the 21st century, an eclectic mix of ideas from British cuisine, with a touch of French and some Asian influence as well, always using the freshest, local produce. Seafood is much in evidence, as you would expect, but meat, game and poultry feature too.All this mixed with exciting wines and cocktails and friendly and attentive service and a really personal touch from the hands on owners make this a venue to remember. We are always happy to discuss your requirements for special celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and we will be pleased to design a special menu just for you.

Visited as a group of six while on holiday in Weymouth. It wasn't our first choice for booking, not many other restaurants being open for Sunday evening, but we were glad we did. Quite expensive, especially the drinks, but the food was very good. I didn't have a starter myself, but they looked quite substantial. I had a seafood dish... More

We went to Mallams on Friday 29th August. When shown to our table, we found the only menus given to us, were for the cocktail selection, and had to wait for the staff to come to the table to request a wine and food menu (clearly trying to get us to buy a cocktail), but also dragging out more time...

Went to mallams for a gorgeous meal with my wife.....not cheap food but it is good quality. We paid just over £100 for a 3 course dinner with glasses of wine. The crab cake starters were lovely however were slightly oily and would have benefited from a slice of lemon. The fillet steak and the cod main courses were gorgeous... More

My wife and I had meal here for our two year anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were pleasant and punctual and the food was amazing. A couple on the table over had a young child and the waitress offered to 'supersize ' the baby whilst they had they were eating. Little things get make a massive difference. Definitely recommend...

Restaurant specialising in seafood run by charming couple. Service correct and attentive; food well presented, properly cooked and tasty; ambiance convivial, view of lively harbour if you're lucky enough to be near a window; price appropriate for what's on offer. Desserts quite a surprise ! All the fuss of some recent reviews not merited.

We first visited Mallams over 20 years ago on our first family holiday to Weymouth. As our eldest daughter was a baby at the time, we were not exactly well off, but decided to treat ourselves to a restaurant meal. I can honestly say that the food in Mallams was the best I had ever tasted at the time, and... More

Visited Weymouth for a birthday weekend and chose Mallams on it's reviews. We enjoyed the evening immensely! The service is fantastic and the food is exactly as you would expect from this quality of restaurant- superb!! I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant and will definitely visit next time I'm in Weymouth. Chari & Ben from Kent.

Mallams in Weymouth, situated by the old harbour, is a real find and an absolute must if you are looking for a great meal in a delightful setting. So good was this restaurant that I ate in it two nights running! Try the pigeon breast starter or the mussels, both delicious. Main courses include superb guinea fowl, pork stuffed with... More
