The restaurant itself is in an ideal location overlooking the harbour and sea. All three courses of our meal were very good and the mullet fillet for a main course was excellent with a nice choice of potatoes and summer vegetables. The owner, we think, who took payment at the end of the meal was very pleasant and we had... More

Sadly found it very disappointing. Having got there a little early we asked if we could have a drink first and were told to sit outside. Finally after twenty minutes we were asked what we would like. As the drinks arrived we were told to go in to the table. It was so cold. Staff seemed disorganised and we had... More

we booked this as our 'posh' lunch on holiday in Dorset but despite the central London prices and celeb chef name, it didn't live up to expectations. The views are stunning but the place is tucked away and hard to find by sat nav. Parking 100m up a steep hill so hard if you have mobility problems. Food was ok,nothing... More

I had visited the restaurant in November 2008 alone and had enjoyed it there. I'd promised my partner ever since that I would take her. She had a birthday coming up and I asked her what she wanted to do. She chose Hix. We were so glad she had. Although we were booked in for dinner, we also popped in... More

I had dinner twice at Hix. Wow! The food was fabulous. The first time, I stopped in after a hike, intending to come back later after a clean-up. However, the hostess encouraged me to come in right then and there. So, unpretentious. That's a plus. I was given rock star seating, with a view over the Cobb and harbor on... More

We chose this restaurant as it was close to our B&B, having noted the somewhat mixed reviews on TripAdvisor. We had booked well in advance, but on arrival, our table was not quite ready, so we were shown onto the terrace and offered the menus. It wasn't long before we were seated. Service was very good, and we have no... More

We'd really been looking forward to dining at Hix having heard good things. It was a meal to celebrate our last night in Lyme. However maybe we should have trusted our intuition that all did not seem well when we were chased three times to confirm our table booking....it smacked of a business desperate to fill tables. We arrived on... More

We booked the table by the window and the view was stunning. Can't be a better view!! The Restaurant was packed and as we arrived early our table wasn't quite ready so we were shown to a table on the terrace where we were given a menu. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful in explaining our choices; nothing was... More

The view and the food, wonderful staff. Excellent choices. Not crazily expensive. We go every time we are in the area and love it on each occasion.
