There were 8 of us in the Restraunt for an afternoon tea. Despite there being no other customers the service was very slow and one of our orders was missed out. Portions of clotted cream and jam were positively miserly. Glad we didn't book for dinner.

Great location, lovely views. Shame the waiting staff acted as though they'd been dragged from the beach after too much sun and few beers.and plonked in a restaurant expecting them to work. After 20 minutes we got our first drinks, mine wasn't chilled but I didn't want to wait another 20 minutes for a replacement. The water that was offered... More

We enjoyed our last night in Lyme Regis with dinner at Hix. The view from our table (request a window seat when booking) was absolutely stunning looking over the Cobb at sunset. My husband had the crab soup which was absolutely delightful. I tried the whelks which were good, but probably I wouldn't choose them again but that's more a... More

We both enjoyed our food here, obviously the fish is excellent. A bit let down by the skinny chips, which could have been from macdonalds, but that hardly tainted the night!! I had posh fish fingers, which were scrumptious, husband particularly enjoyed his oysters, and cocktails. Most memorable for me was the saltiest caramel ice cream I have ever tasted,... More

We went for lunch, based on recommendation from friends. The welcome, service and food were all very good. The position of the restaurant allows lovely views of the Cob, particularly if you are lucky enough to get a window seat. The day we went started out cloudy but as it cleared the restaurant became hotter and hotter. Although there is... More

I visited on Sunday with my family and we had a young baby with us we were given an excellent position in the dining room and a high chair was quickly arranged. The menu was exciting making our choice difficult. I chose the mackerel salad followed by the most delicious John Dory I have ever tasted. We asked advice on... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The staff were so nice, the view was spectacular, the restaurant had a lovely ambiance and the food was everything I'd expect from a Hix restaurant and more. The lobster was outstanding and I'm a big fan of the Hix Fix having first sampled it in Shoreditch. I will certainly be returning. Thanks to... More

Wonderful restaurant overlooking the bay, great service, food and atmosphere. I would highly recommend it, even if you just pop us for a few cocktails on the terrace overlooking the sea.

That sums it up, really. The place is beautiful, with a stunning view of the bay. The food is memorably good -- I had an oyster in a tomato jelly that I will not soon forget. Some of the touches are charming -- they offer filtered water for £1, with the money going to the local children's hospice. What a... More

We visited after a recommendation from a colleague and we were not disappointed! From the moment we walked in the service and attention was second to none! Our 9 year old was made to feel welcome and comfortable (which often isn't the case in restaurants) with colouring to keep her occupied! The view was incredible and the food even better,... More
