Two course seafood platter! What???!!! But so right. First course delicious hot scallops, mussels, salt and pepper squid, giant spicy prawns. Second course
Incredible. Including lobster and prawns but the hero of the dish a giant spider crab. All so freshly cooked the flavours sang. Not that “refrigerator “ taste you often get with at least some of the fish on a mixed platter. Ooooh I still dream of that spider crab. Wine was great too, and the service outstanding. One of best meals I ever had. I wish it were closer!

Birthday celebration. Lunch with the hubby. The staff are really lovely. Ordered crab salad and scallops. Really delicious. I would honestly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Book for the evening I guess. The parking is the only problem in Salcombe . The restaurant is on the edge of a big car park ,but we parked at the car park at the top of the town and honestly its not that far to walk back up the hill.

What a great place – we chose the full experience of the crab, lobster, langoustines etc for 2 and really enjoyed it. It’s in a great location, the staff are really good, and the food simply prepared with top quality ingredients is as good as you can get for a seaside fish and shellfish experience. Next time in Salcombe we will be back

I love seafood so when I saw the reviews for this place, I had to try it and it was spot on! Huge portions, fresh and tasty food and beautifully presented. One of the best dishes I'd had in a long time. Staff were fun and good humoured too so a really enjoyable evening. Will make a special trip to go again if we go to Devon again.
