One of the nicest meals we've had, be sure to book. Excellent fresh food, well cooked, well presented, served with a smile and not at a rip off price; who needs Padstein! Go and enjoy!

This is an extremely friendly restaurant with excellent food. It serves a lot of fresh fish and meat, but there was also a great veggie option when we visited - falafel. Delicious house wine and a romantic setting, although I would take my kids there too. Altogether a lovely evening and very good value for money.

Probably the best restaurant in Mevagissey. Excellent service, fabulous food. Be sure to book a day before as it is very popular

We visited the Salamander on a Monday, ( fully booked on Saturday ), I had a lovely meal, Scallops perfectly cooked as a starter, rack of lamb as a main followed by an orange and ginger Posset. The atmosphere is relaxed, the service is excellent, and the food is good enough to stop a conversation :)

We have tried to eat here for a couple of years during our holiday but as we live a bit 'in the moment', we never managed to get a table. Not this time! We booked by email before we even arrived in Cornwall and the response to my queries and subsequent booking was fast and courteous. There is a reason... More

If you only have one meal out when you visit Mevagissey, make sure it's at the Salamander Restaurant. The fish was beautifully cooked and wonderfully presented. The front of house staff were friendly, efficient and quietly attentive. Next time we will ensure we have room to try the puds menu.

If there's one good reason for recommending Salamander it's that it is consistently good. I run a B&B in Mevagissey and our guests are always full of praise for the delicious food, beautifully cooked and friendly, professional service. And they always go back. It's a small restaurant so book ahead particularly in peak season. Last night I had Smoked Salmon... More

We'd booked a table based on the great reviews and even on a Monday it was full! Small intimate place with friendly, helpful and efficient service. Loved every mouthful of scallops starter and Bass main course. No room for yummy looking puddings. Be warned... parking for evening by harbour £3.80 even with a Blue Badge.

Thank Mandersabroad
