Consistency in the restaurant trade is sadly a most elusive beast, however, Emma's has got it well caged and a permanent resident in this little jewel of an eatery. The genuine pride and attention to detail shines through at every level in this restaurant and certainly speaks volumes for the hard work and professionalism of Emma and her team. Well... More

Wandered into Stoke Gabriel intending to have a meal in one of the pubs. Decided to give Emma's a try and so glad we did! Sat outside with our two daughters, who both loved the lantern theme. Service great even though they were stretched as so busy. We all had fish and chips (all three sizes ordered... Great idea with... More

Enjoyable starter and mains with a fishy theme for us. My wife's crab salad was an enormous offering and we decided to do a swap with her having my choice and me hers. Food quality excellent and BYO a good idea. Remember to bring your drinks or otherwise pop across the road to the local pub and purchase from there.... More

We had a mix of steaks and fish in our party and all was served hot and tasty and cooked to perfection. Remember to bring your... More

Emmas serves the most divine food - really creative fish, seafood, steak and other meat dishes plus plenty of vegetarian choices. Local produce all cooked beautifully. The waiting staff Becca and Ollie were really attentive and good fun too. The BYO policy means that you get a gourmet experience for a very good price. Highly recommended. They do Fish n... More

We had the most extraordinary food here one lunchtime when we turned up with two sleeping babies. They were very welcoming and made us comfortable in the garden where we could keep an eye on the children sleeping in the car. The outside space was great and had a real Mediterranean feel to it. The fish we ate was exceptional...... More

We stayed in Stoke Gabriel for a week in June. Emma's is so popular that it's essential you book in advance, we were successful in booking for the Wednesday evening. The place has a wonderful ambience and you feel looked after from the moment you arrive. The menu is pretty varied with (unsurprisingly) a strong fish theme. For starters I... More
