The setting was superb and service great. My husband had the fillet steak and said was one of the best he'd ever had. I had the medallions and was a bit disappointed as felt the were a little chewy and lacking in flavour. Everything was beautifully presented and we had a lovely evening but as we have had slightly better... More

had a meal about 5 years ago where it was more burgers and cocktails, now when we stayed with an evening meal included, we thought 'ok" - how wrong were we!! the food is INCREDIBLE, I was blown away firstly by the simple bread as we started - best bread I've ever eaten (note to other clients - don't overeate...

Even though we have visited Dartmouth for 9 years we had never dined at The Dart Marina. This year we decided to give it a try. We had a table with a lovely view of the river and the ferry to Kingswear. We were a little disappointed that although on the menu the Pork was not available, but nevertheless, the... More

As locals we used to go to Wildfire and have not been back since this has been closed and the main restaurant revamped. The general ambiance is much improved and its a comfortable place to dine with plenty of space between the tables, bar service was swift and good and our order was taken in good time. The food was...

I wondered why the River Restaurant at the Dart Marina Hotel did not feature in the better restaurants rated on Trip Advisor as the last time my wife and I ate here we had a great evening - good food and friendly and efficient service. Having now endured one of our worst evenings in a Restaurant, I know why! Firstly,... More

Four of us ate here on a Saturday night. While we all enjoyed our food in terms of taste, presentation and ingredients, we were less than impressed with the service. On arriving at the hotel you’re left to drift through the building with no clear indication of where the restaurant is, and on finding the right place a few staff... More

Firstly, may I say that I found the concierge at this hotel to be one of the best I've ever encountered - he clearly took pride in his work and was an absolute delight. A credit to the hotel! My friend and I had lunch at this hotel - not the first time, but the first since it's re-furb. Service... More

We dined here last week,it was absolutely awful! It has really gone down hill from last year. I had Bruchetta with tomatoes and mozzerella cheese, terrible, tasted like a cold piece of toast with stone cold chopped tomatoes and a layer of solid mozzerella! i only had two mouthfuls and then complained. They took the price of the starter off... More
