Superb Mediterranean/ North African inspired menu, with unusual dishes, interesting choices and beautifully cooked and flavoured food. Service was friendly and unobtrusive, but a little slow at busy periods. Really enjoyed, would recommend.

Had dinner here a couple of times during our holiday in Lynton. Good food (particularly the cauliflower & almond soup and the steaks) and interesting vegetarian options. Would recommend but do book in busy times.

Make sure you book at the restaurant is very busy in the evenings. Food was excellent - I was particularly taken by the baklava dessert which was delicious. Nice relaxed atmosphere with good service

This is a popular place so we did book in advance. The evening menu makes this restaurant stand out in Lynton: plenty of choice and flavours with a Mediterranean influence. I had an excellent Fish and Seafood Stockpot. The food generally is well prepared and...More
