Fantasticly Fresh Food

As expected beautifully plump, tasty, fresh fish that just melted in your mouth, served by lovely friendly staff. We only popped in for a main course, but both dishes were cooked to absolute perfection, The dining room is worth a visit alone - it's a funny little place perched on the side of a... read more

We booked Hix as a special treat while staying in Lyme Regis, and whilst the food was lovely the service really did spoil the occasion for us. The location for Hix is just beautiful with stunning views of the cob, and it really does feel special. However, from the moment we entered the restaurant we were made to feel rather... More

For me it was a pilgrimage to celebrate the life of an inspirational figure in my life. The restaurant was buzzing and we had to wait a short while for our table but were well looked after and enjoyed cocktails and then delicious ling curry, followed by a light dessert. All in all a most pleasant experience and totally understandable... More

Booked in advance to avoid disappointment as this was a special occasion and we asked for a window table. We were not disappointed! The food and service was fantastic, wine list was right up our street and the creme brûlée was the most delicious finale. It being my favourite meal of the whole trip, the lobster was outstanding - well... More

What a fabulous place to have a restaurant... if you are able to walk up hill (or down, if you are parked in the large local car park at the top). We sat over-looking the bay and the Cobb one early April lunch time... it was a real treat. The service was helpful and attentive without being over the top.... More

I had heard great things about this restaurant but was very disappointed. Poor attention to detail and bad cooking. Mussels over cooked and oysters not even shucked correctly. Fish pie ok but I have had better. Honestly if our experience was typical I would say the emperor has no clothes and the restaurant should go out of business. The setting... More

This restaurant is in a truly beautiful setting, perched on a high point overlooking Lyme Bay. It's a really interesting menu - totally fish oriented, there's a steak but no vegetarian option. I had cuttlefish croquettes to start which were absolutely delicious, then black Lyme Bay sea bream with hollandaise sauce. Crushed potatoes with seaweed were very good. Everything tasted... More

I've just read some of the negative reviews on this site and can't understand how this could be the same the same place we visited for lunch on Saturday. This was very much an impromptu visit, booked on-line late the night before and we arrived in beautiful weather for a glass of bubbly on the terrace with spectacular views over... More
