Description: Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since...
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.

Excellent!

This was our second visit to Mallams restaurant and, on both occasions, it has been excellent. The choice of menu, quality of the food and the level of service could not be faulted. My wife had mussels to start ('her best ever') followed by the corn-fed chicken ('absolutely delicious'), whilst... read more

We visited here for my wife's birthday and it was no trouble when booking a table. We were greeted most friendly and taken care of all evening by the staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Including arranging for flowers to be delivered there and bought out at the meal. Very accommodating and we were made to feel very... More

Visted Mallams Friday night, small restaurant in Weymouth. Food was lovely and cocktails were good, the Kir Imperial was a bit lacking for a drink costing £9.95! Maybe a raspberry in the glass and some champagne with a bit of fizz would go a long way. The food was excellent, small portions and pricey but very good. The seats have... More

Thank you for your review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed the food. We are sad that you didn't enjoy your Champagne cocktail, we would have changed it for you if you had mentioned it to us. I am sorry you felt I neglected you, this was certainly not the case, we were rather busy and I do try... More

Had the pleasure of visiting this stunning restaurant on Saturday night. Could not fault anything. Location is stunning, staff welcoming & friendly and the food is amazing (recommend the fish/seafood casserole - it is to die for!). Great menu, tasty cocktails. Overall, one of the best little places around. More deserving of a #1 trip advisor rating.

This was my second visit to Malays, who are currently celebrating their 25th anniversary and have a dedicated menu as part of their 25 years in business. I recommend booking in peak season, but in low season, getting a table shoudn't be a problem. I recommend the rack of lamb and my colleague had the hake. Great food, service and... More

I am a bit of a foodie, so I don't rate restaurants lightly. I ate at Mallams on the 10/03/2015 and had a very good experience. The restaurant was recommended to me by friends that had lived in Weymouth seven years earlier. I was concerned that in seven years a lot could have changed, however, my dinner definitely warranted a... More

Had a wonderful meal here with my husband, service was very attentive by the owners and food to match, all three courses were cooked to perfection. Great wine menu and lovely cocktail to start. Set on the harbour, perfect romantic meal.

Great 3 course dinner, Pigeon followed by Sea Bass and then a fantastic cheese board. Wine List not bad and interesting drinks menu in general. Service good and friendly and great setting be it winter or summer. Overall good value.
