Lovely view but slow and Inattentive service. Good oysters, wrong starter brought for one guest, slow with mains, no vegetables until two promptings, fish nearly cold by then! Buttered spring vegetables were surprising, anaemic chopped white cabbage and leek, with fish?Weren't asked if we wanted pudding or coffee. Disappointing.

First, this place isn't cheap, so won't suit everyone. But we visited twice over Easter and the food was excellent both times. Dinner service was a bit brisk for me (more time between courses please) and the dinner waiter could have been a bit friendlier, but the food (most important bit) was delicious. Crab & asparagus to start. Fish main.... More

We visited early evening and the restaurant was packed, with any vacated tables being swiftly taken up by the next wave of diners. The staff did not stop, yet we were treated with smiles and charm. We've eaten here many times over the years and it never disappoints. We had the crispy seabass and Denhay bacon salad, and asparagus, to... More

A salty fish pie, ok but not great, 2 very bland expensive Puds and cold coffee. Not in the same league as Stein. Plus a rather grumpy waitress who seemed to think we were doing her a favour being there. Inflexible when I asked for some cucumber and tomato when instead of lettuce for my 5 year old- tried to...

Top notch food. Beautiful view. Worth every penny. Lobster curry was wonderful. Fish pie enough to take home and savour another day. Best smoked salmon. Must rebook...

Many thanks for lovely meal & eve last Sat, enjoyed tasty fishy food, friendly service & views across the Cobb. After reading some negative comments here, maybe we just 'lucked out', was thrilled to have a window table, but we would recommend eating here.

A short review. The seafood and service are exceptional!! If you go to Lyme Regis please visit this restaurant. I could eat here every night. The crab and lobster have to be some of the freshest I have ever had and the chocolate mousse was to die for (and I don't usually eat dessert). Finally service. The staff (without exception)... More

We had lunch as a family gathering of 11 people. The sun poked through, and the whole meal was bright and fresh. Fantastic views and very tasty food - especially the lemon sole, perfectly seared scallops, huge Lyme Bay crabs and a very tasty monkfish curry. Service very relaxed but attentive. A lovely warm fishy afternoon in Lyme.

We always make a point of visiting this restaurant when we're in Lyme, but each time we have had the same experience...outstanding setting, disappointing food.I can honestly say that the fish and chips that you get in the traditional fish shop near Town Mill is of better quality- fresher and more skilfully cooked. Our girls had the children's menu and... More

The menu matched the surroundings brilliantly. Fresh fish and local products and ingredients combined to deliver original and really tasty food. The service was really friendly and knowledgeable. The whole restaurant had a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. The view out over the harbour was stunning. We will definitely return.
