Been recommended to try this restaurant for years by a friend and finally tried it and it was just superb. It is well worth the drive out from Dartmouth to eat here as the food and service was excellent.
We booked and by the way they were turning away people it was a good job we had done but can certainly see why it is so busy. Will be back again soon!

Couldn't fault the food, but somehow the place lacked atmosphere. We went on a week night out of season, so the restaurant was very quiet. I didn't think it was great value for money. I had wanted to try it for ages but felt a bit disappointed by it and probably wouldn't go there again.

Excellent, friendly service. Delicious, well cooked, locally sourced food. Great. We really couldn't fault anything. The menu was also competitively priced.

Very good food: wild mushroom starter had a phenomenal flavour; a fish starter and our fish main courses were fresh and delicious.

Plenty of room at our table, a decent space between us and the next one.

Service was attentive, not intrusive, though our waiter seemed a little rushed.

Three courses for two, including a bottle of locally made Sharphams wine: £90, with service extra.

If you come before 7:00pm they reduce prices on several dishes, to £6 starter, £12 main & £6 dessert, so you could have three courses for £24.

We loved this popular restaurant in Strete, Devon because the food is delicious, the atmosphere is lovely and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

We ate on two separate nights and took advantage of the early bird menu offer between 5pm nd 7pm. This is a very popular restaurant and booking is strongly recommended even for the early bird.

The theme is fish and plenty of it although there is pork and beef on the menu. The produce is all locally sourced and we wanted to eat fish and enjoyed the sea bass, monk fish and mussels - all very delicious.
