A lovely little fish restaurant in the heart of Meva. The Hake was perfect and make sure you save some space for a pud!

Visited twice in three evenings as our first experience was so pleasant. We were recommended this restaurant by 'locals' and were not disappointed. The food was excellent on both occasions, the service friendly and efficient and lovely little personal touches such as a jug of iced water and home-made bread with balsamic dip/butter served free of charge and a little...

This really is an excellent little restaurant in Mevagissey, tucked away up one of Mevagissey's tiny lanes. We booked for our final night in Cornwall and although running late after a long drive (and arriving after closing time), our table was graciously held for us. Food was excellent: a good range of fresh fish, perfectly cooked and offered with a... More

Went for a meal here on the back of numerous excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. The lady who greeted us was very nice and the service was excellent, however the food was decidedly average and fairly expensive for what we actually had. I couldn't complain as such about anything but it was certainly not the best meal we had in... More

Ok, we are walking around Mevagissey looking for somewhere to eat, its pot luck as we have not read any reviews and we come across the Salamander Restaurant. First impressions are good, crisp smart furniture, smart decor and the staff (who turn out to be the owners) look very inviting and professional. Now we sit down, the wine menu looks... More

The salamander is an outstanding restaurant that easily out classes the others in mevagssy. The food was exceptional and the service was perfect, being professional yet maintaining a friendly atmosphere within a beautifully decorated environment. Pre-booking is essential to avoid disappointment.

Booked a table before we left home to be sure as the Salamander is popular - for good reason. Mrs P had the Cornish Sole (Megrim), which I have enjoyed on previous visits, and my main was the Rack of Lamb. On top of excellent starters, and general over-indulgence whilst here, left no room for puds but the Strawberry Tidy,... More

Came across this restaurant early evening whilst visiting Mevagissy. The restaurant was fully booked for the evening but they very kindly managed to squeeze us in. The food was wonderful and the service was spot on. Great value for money. We will definitely be returning. Do call to book a table in advance as they could have filled the restaurant... More
