I came here for dinner with my wife. We sat outside overlooking the harbour. The food was delicious - I had a burger and my wife had a fish curry. The staff were attentive and made us feel at ease. I would highly recommend visiting dick and wills

Good views. Nice service. Had lunch. Tempura prawns and squid with fries. Only got 2 prawns & 2 pieces of squid. They were good but not worth £12.95. With a bottle of wine one course each cost £60. Not good value for money Views at The Ferry pub are better and food & drink much better value

I've heard that Salcombe hasn't really found the formula when it comes to good food. So what a great surprise when we went to Dick and Wills. They have got the formula spot on. Food was sensational (an Asian fusion style with the fish worked really well) Pork Thai styled dish for starter and melt in your mouth sea bass... More

We have been in a few times for a drink on the terrace and decided to eat on s rate night out without our children. Fantastic food (mussels and lobster were amazing and the paella even better) and the service was professional, friendly, polished and flawless. Great food, great booze (get a 'Gin Fizz' in) and great service, leaving you... More

Superb restaurant with a view to die for. As good as it gets in terms of menu, setting and staff. A must visit if in Salcombe.

My family dined at Dick and Wills for my daughters birthday. We had a great table on the outside terrace with views over the harbour. The service was excellent from the well trained staff and all our requests were delt with in a professional manner. The food menu is good with a choice of courses that would suite everyone. My...

We stopped here because it claimed to have the best views. It doesn't the view is not uninterrupted. We ordered coffee, teas and cakes. Some friends arrived a little later and also all ordered a drink. I asked if we could smoke on the un-glassed deck area and were told we could, we also apologised to the people sat there... More

salcombe8, Owner at dickandwills, responded to this review

Firstly, the views are uninterrupted, secondly, the whole of the deck is glassed in, and smoking is not allowed whenever there are people eating on the deck. Thirdly, it is unacceptable that this group felt it was appropriate to bring in and eat their own sandwiches in a restaurant. It is a shame that tripadvisor is prepared to publish a... More

I note good reviews for bacon rolls and fish finger sandwiches. Perhaps so. But for a three course evening meal, with wine, it's highly priced, clumsily delivered and nowhere near good enough. Obviously popular in a great location, with outside tables overlooking the harbour. But a 'fixed' menu with no catch of the day and apart from sea bass the... More

After being recommended this brasserie by a young lady in the Joules shop in the high street we was not disappointed . A walk down several flights of stairs led us to a very modern and very well decorated brasserie . Immediately greeted and seated . Lunch was lovely with my wife having a lovely fish finger sandwich and myself... More
