A good meal but oh dear the poor waitress - more staff needed

I ate here on my own on a Wednesday evening - it was busy but not full. An interesting bistro menu with several specials too. A wide range of fresh fish, a couple of veggie options, chicken, a fish lasagna and a lamb tagine. Good informal atmosphere. I only wanted a main course but starters looked... read more

A small bistro style restaurant with a wide menu selection using locally sourced ingredients & good value for money. Visited twice in the same week & whilst we only had the main courses all were very well cooked and presented with hearty portions.

Had the most wonderful meal here, shame they are closed Sunday/Monday evenings. Lovely girls looking after us and the fish was delicious and the desserts tasty. Highly recommend to all.

We ordered Chowder, Tapas and Crab salad. The restaurant was busy but service was good. The food was good, well cooked and presented. The building however was scruffy and the toilets were unpleasant.

what a pleasant surprise, lovely clean, quiet, welcoming little Bistro. Must try a fresh fish dish, so delicately cooked, no fussy trimmings , with fresh vegs that melted in our mouths, a perfect dish. I'm not a big eater, so the serving to my surprise was ample especially for a mid day meal. Places like this are few and far... More

Popped in for an evening meal. The surroundings are ok but a little dated. The main courses were delicious, a Moroccan Lamb Tagine and a Paella. Strangely, both meals were served with salads, which were included even if you said that you didn't want them. The deserts were ok, they just weren't as good as the main courses. Finally, the...

Agree with all of the previous positive comments. Looks unimpressive from the outside (& down a side street) but good quality food, a nice spread of choice, swift friendly service, wifi, sensible prices (+discount if staying in the holiday apartment above) + an ice cream window outside (with amusing staff).

Popped in for lunch with another couple who'd been there many times before and we weren't disappointed. A good choice of menu to suit many tastes is to be had and it tastes nice too! Worth a visit next time you're in Budleigh Salterton.

My partner and I ate here both nights during our weekend stay in Budleigh Salterton. Nice, quiet restaurant, nothing flash and not too big, just a friendly place that caters quality rather than quantity whilst caring for the customer. The food was lovely and the local white wine went with our fish dishes very well. We even brought a bottle... More
