Went in for lunch, ordered a cheese baguette and a pint of beer. Waited about 15 minutes for the baguette to arrive, then had to ask for my pint, and ask again for a knife and fork. Also I don't think it's a Scilly custom...More

The hake was perfect, soft white tasteful flakes of fish. Beneath the fish, from which the skin peeled away without effort, was a medley of beautifully cooked vegetables with their flavours and textures preserved for the palate. Presentation could not have been better. Prettier than...More

Very smart and welcoming. The restaurant is on the beach and the choice is to eat inside or on the patio, which is surrounded by glass fence to keep the wind out. The food was delicious and a bit pricey. Nice to go there for...More

Great lunch here with a great view. Excellent monkfish scampi and a very good pint of Poretti although I think a little over priced but wouldn't stop us from coming back.

There are few more pleasurable things in life than eating good food in a stunning location.
Our menu is designed to complement the setting by providing tastes of the land and the sea as well as meeting the expectations of beach goers who want something simple or light.
Our range of dishes is based on sustainability and where we source our produce is also of great importance.
Of equal importance is the vibe - Scilly is primarily a holiday resort where people come to relax, so by day and night Speros maintains a relaxed and informal atmosphere where people of all ages feel at ease.

There is also plenty of room to sit outside and enjoy the fantastic view. When the tide comes in it is almost like sitting on the end of a pier, and words cannot adequately describe the experience when the sun goes down between the hills of Samson.

In short, Spero's is all about sustainable food done well in a stunning setting with a pleasant atmosphere.

We hope to welcome you soon.
