still the best in town

This small restaurant has maintained a very high standard of good food and atmosphere for a number of years. Various diners have said how much they have enjoyed their time there. Booking is essential as it is very popular.

We have been coming to the restaurant for many years and have had excellent service and amazing food however tonight the service was very disappointing. After knowing we would be late, we called ahead to be polite unfortunately we were still 15 minutes later than expected due to traveling over 50 miles and getting stuck in traffic to be greeted...

Walked in early evening and lucky enough to get a table. Staff warm and friendly, food fabulous! Fresh fish, local produce picked that morning, eaten in the evening and wow! how tasty. Booked for a second time during our stay. Set price for 2 or 3 courses, won't break the bank.

Lovely meal at Salamander whilst on a short break in Cornwall. It's a lovely small restaurant so booking is essential but I would thoroughly recommend a visit. Fresh sea food and vegetables make for a guaranteed delicious meal and cosy evening out.

A great meal in Mevagissey's best restaurant. The menu was impressive with 8 fish main course choices. Service was really efficient and very personable. The trick if you want to get a booking is - you will need to book 2-3 days in advance - the restaurant is fairly small and very popular. But absolutely worth it!!

We came here some five years ago by accident and had a wonderful meal. Booked well in advance this time and came back to another wonderful meal by the same owners Hazel and Mark, this just shows the consistently high standard of food offered as yet again people who hadn't booked were being turned away even though we noticed on...

What a gem! We went as a family on our last night and we weren't disappointed. If there were more than 5 stars we would give it more. The hosts couldn't be nicer and more happy to help. Food quality was excellent - better than excellent in fact! Have the lamb or duck or steak, all incredible. I had fish... More

Great seafood cooked well and served by attentive staff in a friendly atmosphere. Fish was so good went back 2 nights later. Tried the scallops , Sole, and best of all the Seabass. All served with tasty sauces and well cooked veg or salad. They also had other locally sourced meats on the menu which smelled great.Wines reasonably priced. Relatively... More
