Whilst holidaying in Mevagissey we ate her eon one of the evenings. The food is simply delicious. The sticky toffee pudding is quite frankly the best I have ever tasted! It would be worth booking a table should you decide to eat here as even on a Tuesday evening it was busy & the place only seats about 30.

Salamander Restaurant is one of the best is Cornwall. The food is of the highest quality and showscases simple, scrumptious Cornish seafood at its finest. The fresh fish changes on a daily basis, but is always cooked perfectly, offering classic flavour combinations. The warm, friendly atmosphere is wonderful, the staff are always there to help and are genuinely interested, it's... More

Follow the fresh fish sign next to Lloyd's bank up a side street to a warm welcome after 6pm. A very comprehensive menu and many fresh fish options. All food was very fresh and tasty so much so that we visited twice, whilst on holiday. Pleasant, friendly service and the best sticky toffee pudding with lashings of sauce- YUMMY!

On our first night in Mevagissey we were lucky enough to be able to get a table here. It is rated the top restaurant in Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Hazel and Mark run a fantastic establishment. My wife had grilled sole and I had a steak. Both were cooked to perfection and incredibly tasty. Very highly recommended.

Whilst enjoying an autumnal break in mid-Cornwall we discovered Salamander in Mevagissey. We came to celebrate my birthday - and it certainly was a treat to eat here! Our starters of local scallops were beautifully cooked, as were our main courses of hake and Cornish sole respectively. We were amazed to find such good quality food for such an amazing... More

A friend had recommended this place from a visit in May so decided to hunt it out as we were heading down to Mevagissey. We weren't disappointed, we hadn't booked a table but were kindly fitted in as a walk in. The cosy and friendly atmosphere is immediately evident. We both had the scallops to start with garlic butter, they... More

First visit here, food was fabulous, the fish was so fresh and beautiful, went for a fish starter and a fish main, the starter of crab hot pot was out of this world, a definite one to recommend. Quiet a small place so the tables quite close together. Definitely value for money.

Thank kim p
