Despite an initial hiccup with the booking, they were able to accommodate our large party and the food and service was excellent in all respects. Thoroughly recommend visiting this restaurant.

Whilst on holiday in Looe we were really looking forward to returning to the Sail Loft as we had visited on two previous holidays when we had fantastic food and service. We booked a table for the Thursday night. On being shown upstairs to our table the waiter asked 'how are you?', to which I responded, 'fine thanks, and you?'.... More

I decided to look upstairs to see what the restaurant looked... More

This was when we managed to get some acknowledgement of our prescence from someone...We were asked to take a seat in the lounge area downstairs and ordered a... More

The staff were knowledgeable (knew all ingredients of Menu dishes) polite, efficient and accommodating. No delays and our mixed starters and then the mains all served promptly. Champagne and glasses well iced ,... More

Having walked through and around looe we came across this restaurant and on first impressions we thought yes this looks good. We found a table for two and went to order a bottle of wine from the bar and were immediately informed that we could not have food. This was 8.30 on a Saturday night and the lad behind the... More
