Description: NOW OPEN EVERY EVENING. 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.

Our first night in Weymouth, so strolling around we came across this excellent restaurant and on seeing the Tripadvisor rating in the window, decided to request a table. Unfortunately, we were unable to be seated in the front portion of the restaurant but this was not a great drawback as the food was so delicious. I would recommend this establishment... More

Fantastic restaurant on the quayside at Weymouth. Fantastic choice of both seafood and meat dishes. All three courses were to die for. Try the vodka mootini it will blow your head off All in all fantastic choice and yes we would definitely go back

We were only in Weymouth for one night, our first ever visit, and after spending the day exploring the town in the most glorious sunshine, we came across Mallams. How pleased we were that we did! We had a fantastic evening meal served by some really friendly staff. Thank you for making our evening special. Don't suppose you fancy opening... More

The only thing I was upset about was the starter & main was so huge I did not have room for a pud! Beautiful , fresh seafood, attentive service, perfect ! Must be one of the best places... More

Mallams menu is short, well designed and based on local ingredients. The fish and seafood dishes we ate were beautifully cooked and just lovely. We didnt bother with the desserts as they looked (on paper) a bit ordinary and also we were too full to manage cheese. The wine list is good and has something to suit most pockets. Very... More

Thank you for your review, so glad you enjoyed your food and very glad you felt satisfied with the portion sizes. It is a shame you didn't get to try our desserts though, we don't give them too big a build up in the description, hopefully the proof of the pudding is in the eating (sorry, terrible pun). we look...

Janice and Steve, run a very tight 'ship' with excellence shown in the waiting, serving and cooking. Although tables are a little too close together (the restaurant in the grade 2 listed building is cosy) the warm welcome, the food and the attentive waiting staff more than make up for being a bit squeezed. The prices may seem a little... More

Having just spent a pleasant few days in Weymouth , we had the opportunity to sample a number of the towns restaurants. Mallams was by far and away our favourite. Unashamedly more expensive than most , you soon realise why you are paying that little extra. Fantastic setting , friendly and efficient staff , great sea food presented beautifully and... More

Service was good and the food tasted lovely. But way too expensive for such little food. 1 plate of potatoes for 7 people is not enough. The menu stated each main comes with potatoes and vegetables, worked out as about 2 small new potatoes per person. High expectation but left sorely disappointed with the quantity and price

We are so sorry that you felt let down by you experience here. As we only had one table of seven people in last week we do remember what you had and are a bit baffled about the lack of potatoes. Most of the dishes you had (lobster, rib eye) happen to come with skinny fries so only two dishes... More

What a fantastic place. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them (even managed to please my very demanding S.African husband). The food was brilliant, so much choice and very generous portions. We had a lovely night, can't wait to book again on our visit next year.
