This review is about a year late....but when I was racking my brain thinking about where I would love to eat, and holiday again, The Salamander popped straight in to my head. My sister and I travelled to Mevagissey from Worcester, March 2014 for one of our usual weekend breaks. We had lovely pastys here and there, an average meal... More

If you're not terribly familiar, Salamander is supplied entirely by local businesses, so the ice cream, the fish, the tea, some of the wines, the produce, etc., all come from just a few miles away, so you just know it's all very fresh. They tell you what fish they've been supplied with that day (on Valentine's Day, I had the... More

Great atmosphere with a great selection on the menu. Very good wine list. You need to book with good reason.

Went to Salamander for a great New Years Eve meal, the set menu was varied with plenty of meat and fish options and also had some great desserts . Food was very well cooked and the service levels were also very good and friendly. Will visit again the next time we are in the area for sure.

first time we have eaten out on Christmas Day but couldn't have chosen a better restaurant. Service was very friendly without being overbearing and the food was fantastic. We will certainly be visiting again.

My husband and I ate here during a 3 night break in Mevagissey. It was actually recommended to us by the b&b owners where we were staying. Thank goodness we booked a table as while we were there several people were turned away as they had not booked. The food, wine and service were amazing and I would certainly recommend... More

A quiet Friday evening. Great food - fresh scallops and fish, really lovely steak and fresh puddings decorated with home made wafers in the shape of salamanders. So cute. Do visit this restaurant if you are nearby, but in tourist season book ahead.
