I went to Mallams with my fiancé recently and we were greeted warmly as soon as we walked in.
Our waitress was very nice and polite and she gave us time to decide on what we wanted. 10/10 on service
The food was brilliant, definitely worth the money. The time in between courses was about 20 minutes which was perfect for us. As we like to enjoy the food and evening. We never felt rushed from the moment we walked in.
There was a nice and welcoming atmosphere. The waitresses even had time to talk to you which makes you feel valued as a customer. Most places don't do this.
I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone local or visiting. Just make sure you book as understandably they are very popular!

We will be back !

On a short break in Weymouth it was nice to get away from the usual holiday pub grub and to try something a little bit more upmarket. Mallams fitted this bill perfectly. The staff were friendly and courteous but more importantly the food was excellent. Highly recommended would be the mussels in a creamy Thai broth, the mussels being soft and succulent, also the mackerel cevice which was exceptionally fresh terrific for a start to a meal. Try this place, it's good.

Great food in an equally fine location, right on the quayside makes this one of our favourite eating destinations in the entire UK. I suppose that it could be described as a tad expensive but it is fine dining with some stunning dishes. Look out for the strawberry dessert, surely the best "pudding" ever invented. A nice touch is the Amuse Bouche, always interesting, always different. Fixed price menu good value too so is affordable. Next time you're within a few miles of Weymouth, do try it, you don't be disappointed.

Thank you. What a great recommendation from you. We are thrilled that you enjoy what we do and hope you will be able to visit us again soon as we have an exciting new menu. Sadly, no strawberries now but lots of lovely fresh, British seasonal food all of the highest quality. We hope to strike a balance in our pricing of offering the very best ingredients we can source offered to our customers at the very best price. We work hard with our suppliers to make sure you have a great dining experience and from your review it sounds as though that is mission accomplished. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Lovely food, good location, nice service. Very expensive. The proprietor was really not very friendly at all.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed the food, the location and the service. We are sorry you felt it was expensive. We cannot really comment on that, it is your personal opinion and you have not expanded as to why you felt this way.

You say that you felt the owner to be "not very friendly". You did not choose to expand on exactly what gave you that impression so again, a little difficult to comment but we hope that when in Weymouth you will perhaps give us another try as we have been serving people largely with very positive feedback for a long time and your experience is not a typical one.

I never write reviews but I think a couple of minor changes could be made in order for Mallams to be A+ across the board. But I want to highlight the positives first. Great location by the harbour, good choices on the menu including very tasty fish dishes and the most delicious strawberry dessert- I wanted another! Inside is lovely, clean with nautical touches, and calm and relaxed environment. I would highly recommend Mallams, especially if you want an extra special intimate meal for 2. However, greeting could do with improving, we didnt feel warmly welcomed into the restaurant, which was a shame and this can put people off spending money, first impressions count. The fresh bread rolls were a plus and very nice, but I would suggest for the waitress to use tongs and put them on our plates as they were hot, but fresh baked so thumbs up. Go to Mallams...you won't be disappointed. Its classy but not snobby, the food is superb and the location is great. :)

Thank you. We are sorry that you felt the welcome to be below par. That is of course never our intention, our meet, greet and seat policy is explained to all our staff who are generally very good.We are glad that it did not mar your enjoyment of the evening, you sound very positive about the restaurant apart from that small "glitch". We hope to see you back with us in the future and your will be assured of a warm Mallams welcome.
