Hix has excellent food in a relaxed environment. Its more like a cafe in feel than a restaurant. The fish was superb - couldn't have been better

Really what made this place were the brilliant staff, but certainly it helped that they were serving up some of the best seafood we've had. Credit and huge thanks to Giles and his team who were so knowledgeable on the menu and guided us to make some fab choices - do try the beer battered oysters and spicy mayo to... More

In the midst of so many indifferent restaurants it was lovely to return to Hix for a decent meal. Pricey (£60 a head) but so worth it. Very child friendly and the kids ate all of the fish pie on the child's menu (they can be the hardest and most honest of critics!). The menu is not over long (good!)... More

The food was simply amazing and service perfect. The menu was a great showcase of the local area. So often I find I have a great meal but then the pudding is a let down, not here! The summer pudding was the most amazing balance of sweetness and sharp fruit flavours. This is simply a must for anyone who likes... More

Couldn't fault our evening . Staff were friendly and attentive. Wasn't rushed at all. Food was delicious. We had oysters to start. Fresh and tasty. Scallop starters followed by dressed crab for main and a fish curry. Both enjoyed very much. Great atmosphere most enjoyable night. Highly recommended.

Booked online. Had a call to check my reservation that morning. Arrived. Friendly welcome. Not to pushy staff and great food. We were there for our anniversary and they made us a lovely plate of truffles after the meal to celebrate (free). Steak was cooked well and my wife's cod was cooked perfectly. Not the cheapest but you don't mind... More

The little timber house that is Hix in Lyme Regis used to be a tea shop but has found better fortunes selling some of the freshest locally caught oysters and fish I think I have ever enjoyed. Sat in the window (see the pic attached for the view) we saw Lyme harbour slip into darkness as we sipped Picpoul de... More

We had a fantastic view of the English Channel right from the deck. I was going to order a small bit of lobster, but the waiter up-sold us and got us to order a very expensive lobster instead. We enjoyed our food, but the view even more so.

Contrary to some reviewers I do feel this place merits a Michelin star. Fish soup was amazing, dark and intense. Lemon sole simply grilled with new potatoes and herby salad as fresh as it could possibly be. The setting, above Lyme, spectacular. Some have criticised the service. We found it pretty well perfect. In how many places, when hovering between... More

We booked with great expectations of a memorable meal and experience. The restaurant is located high up overlooking Lyme harbour and the bay. So fantastic views. Standard prawn cocktail, nice mushroom dish to start. For the main course I had dressed crab which tasted beautifully fresh. My wife was a little disappointed with her fish curry. Posset was very nice,... More
