Visited this place 1st week in July after reading reviews on Trip Advisor - certainly wasn't disappointed. Nothing flash or fancy about the interior but pleasant and what a view!! There are loads of tables outside too. I called in on the way to the beach just as they were opening to look at the menu - and we then... More

A small, unpretentious restaurant with good quality food and friendly staff with fabulous view of Burgh Island and adjacent sandy beaches. Most tables have a lovely outlook, the restaurant is quietly located above the beach, and in July this year the sunsets were excellent.s

We booked in last night for the 7.30pm sitting and the food was outstanding - I had the battered cod and then the sticky toffee pudding which was delightful. The Tribute beer was chilled and the views were as stunning as ever. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We will be back and thanks for... More

Decided to have lunch here, so glad we did, sat outside, wonderful views of Burge Island. We had the crab salad, what a feast. A beautiful meal, excellent value. The staff were really pleasant and helpful, nothing was to much trouble, even down to getting fresh water for our dog Ezra. We will definitely eat here again when in the... More

Chanced upon this little gem whilst staying in the area for a weekend break and so glad we did. Perfect location with stunning views of Burgh Island.We just stopped for a coffee on the way back from the beach and browsed the menu. We liked what we saw and came back the same evening for dinner, the Cod and chips... More

We had a 'snack' lunch here - crab & prawn salad which we shared. Beautiful - and plentiful! Fresh brown bread and we had some naughty chips on the side. Sat outside & had lovely views of the beach and our hotel on Burgh island. Staff very attentive. Definitely worth a visit.

We called in for coffee and chanced upon some people we knew. We spent some time chatting and enjoying the view, which is quite spectacular. The coffee was good and our friends both had full English breakfasts, which looked nice and got good comments from those eating them.

Arrived early for breakfast - warm welcome even though they hadn't even fired up the cooker yet! Very quick service on drinks - waited a while for our food, but it was worth it, with very well cooked and presented breakfast. Of course the really big pull for this place is the fabulous view out over Bigbury Bay - you... More

Under Bigbury on Sea there are three restaurants listed and this is not one of them! Seems to appear under Plymouth and Kingsbridge for some reason. But it is in Bigbury with an excellent view that fully justifies it's name. Lovely views to Burgh Island and you can watch the tide coming in and cutting the island off. We visited... More
