Late summer evening meal......

Nice place next to the estuary. Quite a few stairs (down) to get to the dining area will make it difficult for some. (there may be a lift, didn't notice) Cleanliness, food choice, service and wine cellar all up to par as was our meal, recommended.....

We spent new year in lovely Salcombe and with 4 other friends booked dickandwills for a New Year's Day dinner. Yes you have to go down stairs to a modern nicely decorated restaurant with wide views over the estuary even early evening. Attentive staff took our drinks order showed us our table and the drinks promptly arrived. A small but... More

Visited for my partners recent 50th birthday. Lovely friendly staff. The food was excellent with some innovative dishes and we all enjoyed what we chose. I chose the Chocolate Pot for a sweet and it was gorgeous. Lovely touch by the staff for my partners birthday - they did him a special sweet with Happy Birthday on. The atmosphere is... More

The restaurant came highly recommended to us by people we’d chatted to. It didn’t really hit the mark for me. There are a few long flights of stairs to get down into the restaurant, which rules out some patrons immediately. The staff were friendly enough, but the service was no better than average. They do rose prosecco by the glass,... More

This was our first visit despite visiting Salcombe for many years and initially it was a bit odd descending the many stairs but don't let that put you off! Every course was packed with well balanced flavours which were obviously well thought out. We thoroughly enjoyed the well presented dishes which not only looked good but also delivered in the...

Had a great family meal at dickandwills. Lovely time overlooking the terrace. But the customer service was really special. We wanted to arrange to treat friends to dinner a couple weeks later when they were visiting but we weren't there, to thank them for lending us their boat. And dickandwils made it so easy. Our friends had a great evening... More

Group of eight of us visited on a quiet Tuesday evening. They were very accommodating, offering three of the party Turbot which was not on the menu but part of a fish curry. Three of the party had fillet steak which was excellent.

This is an interesting location on the ground floor of the old Salcombe hotel. The food was excellent with a good choice of sea food. The view and position is exceptional as with the palms you could almost be on the Med. Well worth a visit. Don't be put off by the access.

This was a real surprise. Booked for the location (which is excellent, with great views across the estuary) and, to be honest, we were expecting standard pricey bistro food. How wrong we were….The food was excellent. It was tasty, innovative and different and if we had been in Salcombe for longer we would have visited again. The menu has a... More
