Well , this was a nice surprise. Called in as we were exploring Lynton and fancied a spot of lunch. Excellent middle eastern choices as well as some delicious Devon scones. Good value and well worth a visit

The food at this restaurant is superb, well cooked and delicious. Delicious mix of English with Turkish influence creating lovely flavours. Booking in advance is a must even in low season.

Ended up here for a late lunch after a Sunday walk as most places were closed. They had a nice menu with lots of choice for veggies and meat eaters. Vegan food was clearly labelled and they had soy milk available for hot drinks. We got sandwiches which were nice and reasonably priced. If we had found the place before... More

We popped in this evening for an evening meal as most places were shut in Lynton. The food was served quickly, and was very tasty. I would thoroughly recommend this place to friends for the quality of the food and value for money which was excellent. The waitress kindly accommodated our two year old in the restaurant/cafe side. At first... More

We were recommended to go to this restaurant. We were disappointed. The main meal servings were small and we left hungry and needed to stop and buy another snack on the way home. The food was of a good quality, but my fish was spicy and I wasn't warned of this nor in the menu or by the waiter. The... More

Unfortunately we were not staying near Lynton otherwise we would have made a booking for dinner at this restaurant. The menu looked very interesting but we were only looking for a cream tea.

This is a remarkably good restaurant for the food quality and tastes. I very rarely give an excellent grade to restaurants but in this case I do so for the combination of food flavours. Like all places, there could be improvements. My recommendation would be to serve bread with the meal and to have proper linen napkins for evening meals.... More
