Stunning location

Well worth a visit for the spectacular panoramic views from the restaurant. Food enjoyable and reasonably priced. However, one does get the feeling that one is not allowed to stay at one's table for as long as one likes, you just have the sense that there is a timescale for one's visit and that... read more

We had been once before when everything was OK, and this time we booked as it was our daughter's birthday. Wine and starter (mussels) were good, but the specifically asked for bread did not appear. Having had some water, we were not asked if we wanted more, nor about other drink for the rest of the meal. By the time... More

After a rainy afternoon, the weather picked up in the evening and treated us to a splendid view alomg the Jurassic coast towards West Bay. But the excellent experience didn't start there.We wanted a table for 4 on a busy Friday evening and at first it din't look as if we would be able to get in. However, the reservation... More

Service, Views, atmosphere and Food first class without being stuffy. Huss in bbq sauce amazing. The Hungarian Head Waiter made everyone feel welcome and was very knowledgeable and excited about the menu. Not your everyday restaurant unless your rich but for a treat would definitely recommend the restaurant. Thank you too all the staff that made the evening enjoyable.

Your first impression of Hix is the fantastic view over the sea at Lyme Regis. You soon learn just how appropriate this is because what follows is a celebration of all that the sea can provide in the area - dishes such as prawn cocktail, fried oysters, dressed crab and grilled sole are excellent; the service was friendly and attentive;...

I chose Hix to celebrate my 60th birthday whilst on a solo walking holiday and had informed them of this in advance. I had read some of the 'mixed' reviews, but I need not have worried. I was given a warm welcome and shown to a window table overlooking Lyme Bay and the Cobb. Whilst perusing the menu, a complimentary... More

Having eaten here before, albeit a few years ago, and having read in the local paper that the restaurant had been rated in the top five in the UK our expectations were very high. Unfortunately the service levels were very disappointing. We did not feel welcomed at the very start and had to wait a long time for our drinks... More

Had two good lunches last week. Sat on the balcony in sunshine with the most fantastic views. We had crab, sole and fish fingers and the most delightful jelly for dessert. Altogether a wonderful experience. The service we had was friendly and relaxed and was just what we wanted.
