My partner and I went for a two course evening meal. Hazel was amazing, very welcoming and friendly. I had the scallops to start this was heaven I can't recommend enough, Everything else from the wine to the food to the service was great, including the price. if we come back to Mevagissey we will be booking with salamander again.

We were exploring the beautiful harbor village of Mevagissey and stumbled across The Salamander. We enjoyed a two-course meal with wine that was not only a fantastic meal but also incredibly good value. We turned up on Saturday around 6pm without a reservation and were very grateful the team managed to squeeze us in later that evening.

We booked a table at Salamander to celebrate our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. The early evening atmosphere was great, very warm and welcoming. Our food was well cooked, tasty and plentiful. As a veggie, I was very pleased to see a good choice of fresh vegetables accompaniments and the new potatoes were delicious. The wine list was very...

Went here for dinner last week and found it very very disappointing. We were a party of 6 on a quiet Sunday evening and got sat in the far right hand side of a half empty restaurant against a wall and there was no room to move. 3 of us were facing the wall. The waitress even knocked an adjoining... More

Good value, good food and a pleasant atmosphere. We booked well in advance as it was our first night in Cornwall following a drive from the Midlands and we did not want to be trawling the streets to find a restaurant on a Saturday night (you HAVE to book otherwise you may well be turned away on busy nights of...

The exquisite choice on the menu of the fresh fish and meat locally sourced and fresh veg and fruit. Your taste buds are taken on a gastronomical journey at such reasonable prices for the high quality food.... we had the most wonderful evening and the friendly smiley service made it all the more enjoyable in the very clean contemporary restaurant...

So we are in this little fishing village imagining good solid pub food and we find this hidden gem nestled in a side street. The food was fresh and the flavours to die for. It definitely entered one of my top three meals out ever! Can't recommend it enough. You will need to book!

Fortunately booked a table aa it waa full on the night. Its a small restaurant but the food selection including fish specials is very good. Service & food was excellent. Its not the cheapest place to eat but well worth the visit.

I visited this small restaurant with my partner for our first trip to Mevagissey. There are not that may eating places in Mevagissey so we booked before our visit knowing that it would be popular. On the whole our visit was good. We could only book for 6pm and whilst the owner was attentive to start the small place soon... More

Sorry to hear that your experience with us was not to your expectations. Yes we were fully booked that night and we managed to fit you in as a re-sit which you were aware of when your booking was made, hence the 6:00pm table. I apologize that you had tough lamb but wish you had said as such when asked... More
