This is a beautiful spot with great views you can enjoy wherever you are seated. The food was top notch - a chocolate mousse had my daughter all but licking the plate - and the service friendly and faultless. I was particularly impressed by how seriously our waiter took my sister -in-law's lactose intolerance, carefully checking dishes for her. A... More

We made a special detour on our journey to visit this restaurant. We booked in advance and were given a lovely table overlooking the famous Lyme Regis Cobb. When the sun was shining you could appreciate the beautiful green colour of the sea and it was a lovely location. We parked at the car park at the top of the... More

We had a window table- many of them are - with what turned out was a spectacular view of Golden Cap and the Jurassic Coastline. This wasn't immediate as the outside awning obliterated much of the view showing only a line of sea. I had asked for it to be raised and was told 'no', however the man at the... More

We actually ate here twice during a holiday in Lyme Regis recently having booked both dates in advance as a friend assured me I'd want to eat here more than once! After visiting the first time we almost cancelled the second booking despite the food being wonderful because of the strange attitudes of virtually every member of staff we encountered.... More

Just had a wonderful evening here; the restaurant is a lovely light space with windows open to the sea and amazing views of Lyme Bay. The service was swift, friendly and polite. The food speaks for itself with a refreshing lack of pretentious window dressing. Oysters of three types were deliciously fresh followed by a great value meal for two... More

Eat here for the second time with the wife. Early table which was fine and the service was perfectly acceptable. Both had one of the salads to start which were fresh, well prepared & beautifully presented. One of the better salads that we have had recently. Grilled mixed fish for two as a main. Well cooked John Dory, Monkfish &... More

Food and service were fantastic. The seafood sampler for two was really well prepared and very good. The oysters were exceptional, really fresh! Unfortunately, the restaurant was very hot the night we were there, and one of the fans had broken. Also, I did not appreciate that the staff started cleaning and preparing to close as we were finishing our... More

Now, I know Anon wrote a review for Hix some time ago and had to report that things weren't as they should be on the food front. Since then and, after several re-visits (well you've got to give them the benefit of the doubt) I am delighted to sit down at the table with a plateful of words and chomp... More

Just back from from an amazing lunch !! Wouldn't normally review so Soon but though this place deserved it. Really cool little restaurant. Not too flashy !!! Started with dozen lovely oysters, then a Crab bisque that I could have had as my last meal. Lobster salad (not best dish) and monk fish cheeks with chanterelle mushrooms. I will definitely... More
