“Frozen fish in Looe!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Very poor experience indeed!
We had to wait for a high chair for our son, it wasn't busy.

When we did get seated our food was very quick. My husban was very excited about having fish and chips is Looe. When it arrived, it was still frozen in the middle!

“Great for a quick bite to eat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We had dinner here on the first night of our holiday, not knowing where to go! The food was tasty enough with lots of simple option such as fish & chips, curry, pizzas etc!!!

“was what it was”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Ate upstairs, as we didnt book we had a half hour wait which I thought was reasonable. I wanted to order straight away as we had a 6 year old with us and it was 20.30 but it was made clear the young lady only wanted to take the drinks order.The jacket potato came in its own dish separated from meal and looked like it had been reheated a few times and not the best looking jacket Ive seen but tasted nice enough. We had to ask for sauces and butters.
Waiter was very helpful when it came to ordering a taxi.
I think I would like to sample other places before returning here.

“Poor quality all round”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

Avoid this restaurant at all costs, the decor looks inviting but that's as far as the praises go.
The food was very poor and it looked like it was cooked by a child due to the fact it was tasteless and not presentd well at all.
The peas were out of a can and were grey in colour, as for the meals themselfs the spaghetti bolognase was sitting in a pool of grease and the steak was chewy and bland.
The drinks were served in dirty glasses, and there is not much choice in the drinks department anyway. Much better restaurants in looe.
