Gem of a restaurant!

We stayed in Mevagissey last week and booked a table at The Salamander for our first night's stay. It was an absolute delight. The food was exceptional and the service superb. We were so impressed that we booked again for our last night in Mevagissey. Again, the food was outstanding and the service without fault. We had a wonderful week... More

Hazel and Mark worked their wonders as usual - sublime and delicious - a true delight. It's difficult to choose something new from the menu because the rack of lamb and black bream are our favourites. Not to be missed, but do book.

Firstly, we found the atmosphere in this restaurant to be very relaxed and friendly. Secondly, the food was excellent (both the steak and the fish (sole)) and I would highly recommend it on that basis alone, and lastly, it's not very expensive either so you will definitely enjoy that aspect of it as well when compared to big city (London)...

Lovely intimate restaurant with a nice relaxed atmosphere. The food was brilliant with some very innovative touches and excellent value. The staff were friendly and attentive but we were not rushed and were given plenty of time to finish our meal at a leisurely pace. Would very much recommend booking in advance. Luckily we were advised to do so as... More

Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor I made an internet booking which was confirmed. The visit to this restaurant was a great experience. I maintain that a good meal out is more than just good food, the atmosphere, staff, and excellent food made this a very enjoyable experience. The price was more than reasonable, but do not increase it after... More

Great little restaurant and deserves all it's excellent reviews. The staff were attentive, and we couldn't fault the food. There was an excellent choice of fresh fish to choose from and the waitress gave an excellent recommendation as there was too much for me to choose from! The crab pot starter was also stunning!

This small Family run Restaurant is superb, the food is excellent the atmosphere friendly and welcoming,and prices and menu choices suit every taste and wallet. Every visit to Meva for us means that the Salamander will be on the itinery.
