Clearly this is a popular restaurant among locals and visitors alike. However, we found the decor cramped and dated, the service a little haughty, and the food disappointing. My partner chose the sea bream, but found it average. I had the veggie option - vegetables in a filo pastry basket. The mix of underseasoned and/or undercooked veg was most unappetising,... More

Visited over bank holiday weekend. Service very friendly and helpful. No problem to order smaller portions or adapt for children, which was very welcome. Food was very tasty and well presented. We had between us crab cakes as starter, moules, seafood casserole, the special fish with chili linguine, and cod. All very good. A lovely meal and would def go... More

“Superb evening meal for four” 4 of 5 starsReviewed 9 July 2016 via mobile We were moored up virtually opposite the restaurant and booked for dinner. Pleasant staff. Nice wines and meal ... Starters were lovely as was the fillet steak; rest AOK. Little bit on the pricey side. Overall we would recommend, but choose carefully.

Visited for our biannual meal whilst on hols. This was THE best yet..... Of course the situation and location is perfect . I think we paid around £100 for a lovely meal for the two of us with a couple of glasses of good wine and port and liquer coffee. Certainly worth it for a special meal.

We dined at Mallams restaurant when we were in Weymouth last weekend and the service and the food are top notch, it's probably not the cheapest restaurant to eat in but well worth it for the quality of the food. The crab soup to start is to die for!! If we were to return to Weymouth in the future we... More

A lovely meal and outstanding presentation with good service. This is though, a relatively expensive restaurant, and it is for that reason I only gave it 4 stars. I certainly would not put anyone of from going there though, as on our last visit to Weymouth 2 years ago, I had the nicest fish meal here that I had ever... More

We were fortunate to get a table.Excellent food with very good service, worth paying that little bit extra for a special night out.

My husband and I went for dinner at Mallams on the night of our first anniversary and really wanted somewhere special - it absolutely delivered! As a coeliac I was unsure what gluten free options would be available but there was plenty of choice and the food was wonderful. My husbands steak was cooked to perfection and my cod with... More

Mallams is a long standing favourite of both locals and visitors since 1990. The restaurant is in an beautiful position with views of the bustling harbour.The Tudor beams and stone walls of the listed building have a traditional feel but are complemented by contemporary decor. The food is very definitely in the 21st century, an eclectic mix of ideas from British cuisine, with a touch of French and some Asian influence as well, always using the freshest, local produce. Seafood is much in evidence, as you would expect, but meat, game and poultry feature too.All this mixed with exciting wines and cocktails and friendly and attentive service and a really personal touch from the hands on owners make this a venue to remember. We are always happy to discuss your requirements for special celebrations, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays and we will be pleased to design a special menu just for you.
