“Re: Meal with friends”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Evening meal with friends at one of their special Friday evenings. Food was good but very expensive for what we received with a bill of over £ 70.00 as com pared to other restaurants in Budleigh Salterton. Far better to visit Ocean Cafe during the day for a snack.

“Lovely coffee and home made biscuits, nice surroundings!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Only popped in for refreshments after a days walking but would like to come back. Very pretty and trendy, lovely biscuits and coffee. The lunches looked lovely too. My only criticisms, the waitress walked past and said 'your too late for lunches', so a rather unwelcoming start, especially as we didn't want lunches anyway. Also, no cards taken, neither credit (understandable) but no debit card either. Good job we had some cash!

I will still go back, the atmosphere, surroundings, coffee and biscuits were lovely!

“Poor service”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Service far too slow, we waited 20 minutes to order, I had to actually ask the waitress to take our order....then the wrong food came. Then some more people came in and were trying to take off their coats and the waitress was trying to take their order before they'd sat down, they were too polite to ask her to come back... it was all very strange. We gave it another go, but that time we walked out as we were sick of waiting, the waitress was more interested in cleaning the tables than taking our order. The food I have eaten has been ok... Overpriced and smallish portions, but ok. It's a real pity about the service aspect as it is a lovely building and decorated beautifully, they just need to get organised.

“Good quality food”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Just popped in for lunch here and thought the food was excellent. The soup was piping hot and so tasty. We did wait ten minutes for it but as a couple it didn't bother us and it was worth the wait just for the freshly baked cheese scone that was seved with the soup!!. The atmosphere was trendy but relaxed and I would recommend it even if you just go there for the soup and scone - outstanding!!
