Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Best restaurant in South Devon! Superb food; lovely atmosphere; brilliant staff (family run); music very low in background unlike many establishments! Will visit again on every possible occasion when in area.

Just had the seafood platter from Emma’s restaurant delivered to us. Very nice gentleman called us back re: our order, was delivered on time. Food was delicious and more than plenty for the two of us. Shame we aren’t here any longer to try the...restaurant. Well done to all your staff.More

This venue was recommended & I’m pleased to say it didn’t disappoint. Opposite the village pub where we had pre dinner drinks but for food this venue is highly recommended.

Thank you to Emma and John plus their daughter, all of you were absolutely amazing, coping seamlessly with 25 of us, (including 11 children) and producing the most wonderful meal. Nothing was too much trouble, we had a wonderful evening. We would definitely revisit and...highly recommend your restaurant .More

Cannot recommended Emma’s highly enough! We booked a table for 10 to eat here last Saturday night and had spoken to John on a few occasions prior to this, as we had a few requirements, which they more than happily accommodated. Unfortunately, due to a...car breakdown, it was impossible for everyone to get to the restaurant, but they went above and beyond to help us and we were able to pick up our meal to enjoy together at home. It was beautifully presented, there was plenty to eat and everyone commented on how delicious it was. 5* customer service matched with 5* quality food. Cannot recommend them highly enough.More

Wow!  What an amazing meal! Emma and John are just doing takeaways at the moment, but the food is well worth it. Ordering was very easy. John arrived bang on time and what we were given with was so beautifully presented and ... what flavours. ...The squid was delicious, the smoked duck salad was just stunning and the banoffee pie... the best I have ever tasted. If you ever stay in, or near Stoke Gabriel, you must give Emma's a call. I highly recommend them.More

We are on holiday, staying in Stoke Gabriel, and after a lovely dog walk from Broadsands to Elbury Cove, we promised ourselves fish and chips at Brixham Harbour, however it was so busy and we struggled to park, so gave up and came back to...the village. At short notice Emma’s were able to accommodate a take away for us the same evening, and it was delicious. Great cod, lovely batter, and well cooked chips. I thoroughly recommend this option, and it means you can stay local, and eat either at your holiday house, or on the quay overlooking the Mill Pond.More

Perhaps outside but inside is quite small. Best to ring.

Yes I believe there is limited opening for the restaurant If you are there on a Saturday then I would book it now as it is tiny and very popular. Don't forget to bring your own wine! Have a great time
