Booked this place after seeing the reviews on TA as a birthday celebration.

Wonderful location, excellent customer service especially from the young waitress and waiter , made the children feel really special.

Good food huge choice and good cocktails.

“Fab view, fab staff AND FAB food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

A smashing Italian restaurant set in an idyllic location! My husband and I had the good fortune to eat @ Elements 4 times...twice for dinner and twice for breakfast! And our breakfast, I have to say, was every bit as tasty and fresh as our dinners were! Sitting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on a cloudless morning, eating locally sourced sausage, bacon and eggs...what could be better??!! OH YEAH... sitting overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on a beautiful evening eating the finest, beautifully cooked Italian dinner!! What made everything just a little bit more special, were the wonderful staff, nothing was too much trouble and even when things got busy (and they certainly did) staff still kept a smile and sense of humour!
From the lovely welcome from Jamie and his lovely wife, to the offer of a 'pick up' from our coastal path walk should we need it, to the beautiful views and fine-dining, to the very kind and generous offer of a return visit when our trip got cut short unexpectedly, to the warm hospitality of ALL the staff, ELEMENTS is certainly a must eat at venue for anyone visiting the stunningly beautiful Widemouth Bay area.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

“Absolutely spot on ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Hadn’t been to Elements since last summer. Was invited to join a great bunch of friends at a dinner club last night, twenty one of us! Now I know from experience that getting twenty one dinners out at one go is sometimes an epic! But clearly not for Elements, it was absolutely perfect, the Tempura batter prawns were delicious and very nicely presented, the steaks to follow were all perfect and cooked to exact requirement …. The wine was good and I always love this ambience. Perfect evening.

“Great Food, Great View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Just had 10 days in the South-West and ate at Elements twice. Really helpful and enthusiastic staff greet you and you are shown into a nice eating area and, if you are lucky, you will get a table near the large windows which lets you enjoy a fabulous view of Widemouth Bay. The food is basically Italian, although I noticed you could get a bugger and fries as well. Pizza's were fab, risotto superb and the Chicken dish was splendid and all freshly prepared in my opinion. All-in-all, really good experience in nice low-key enviroment.

Thanks for your kind words and your two recent visits to elements. I'm not sure we do a bugger and fries but definitely a BURGER and fries! Really glad you enjoyed our hospitality and food. Hope we welcome you again next time you are in the area. Kind regards
