Great atmosphere, friendly staff! Live music on Saturday nights too! Well worth a visit!
We went here on Saturday night (party of 4) as we are regular visitors to the sister restaurant - the winking prawn which is lovely.
Our waitress was very nice but the food was quite literally... horrible.
We ordered halloumi whilst we read the menu- it was inedible. Raw halloumi swimming in extremely potent garlic oil. They did take this off the bill as we didn’t touch it.
Starters: mussels were full of grit and minuscule. They were clearly not fresh.
Prawns were over cooked and tasteless.
Ribs were nice & crab croquettes were fine.
Mains: 2 crab salads (one with a pepper allergy which we told the waitress- peppers were not listed on the menu but we mentioned it anyway) the person with the pepper allergy was served a salad with peppers in.
Jerk chicken: was fine. Just a piece of chicken with some rice, can’t do much wrong.
Scallops & prawns- absolutely the worst meal I have had out in devon ever. And at nearly £20. The prawns were so over cooked I couldn’t peel them. The scallops were over cooked too. The meal was just awful.
We mentioned all of this to the manager when we went to pay (over £100 for the pleasure of trying to eat this food) and his attitude was quite literally “well what do you want me to do about it?”
I never complain. I never write reviews. But that was hands down the worst meal I have ever eaten in a restaurant, and it is a huge shame as it could be lovely.
Nice place , great cocktails but food a let down , expected better .
Always good service and buzzy atmosphere - burgers and Peroni unbeatable!
The food was acceptable without being outstanding but we chose the venue for the evening and live music which was very good and the staff and service were excellent.
Very enjoyable and delicious. Lovely atmosphere and very attentive staff.
Great food, atmosphere and service as always especially the Moules & Frites!
Real noice borgor 👌🏽Had a swell evening, would recommend to anybody
Great food, best rack of ribs! lovely waterfront location
We had a nice meal on a quiet evening. More of a bar than a restaurant which detracted slightly from the dining atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and efficient
The meal started so well. Yummy cocktails and the service to begin with was great. We got our food, and after that we were completely forgotten about. No offer of dessert menus, and we had to wait 50 minutes for our bill. In the meantime, they were trying to set up the live music around us, and were so desperate to try and get us to move that they opened the doors directly where we were sat (it was tipping it down outside, and cold). All they needed to do was sort our bill out, which we had asked for several times, and we would have happily moved for them. It was such a shame.
The food was amazing and the staff were very helpful.
We went on a quiet week night but had great service.The food was delicious and had a lovely view over the estuary.Would highly recommend.
We like this restaurant. The food is lovely, it's fun decor makes it nice for kids and the service is always good. The waiters are young and good looking and it's relatively cheap
Atmosphere is great, waiting team are really good, cocktails were good value at happy hour. Food is okay only - vegetarian options are very limited, the mac and cheese was really disappointing, coleslaw portions tiny. It's a good venue for a gathering and a fun evening out Friday and Saturday.
Reasonably priced American diner type place with a good atmosphere. Bit off the main drag found it easy to book
Food was good. Long wait between starter and mains arriving. Child's pasta came out cold however.
Sticky table was a bit off putting!
Love a trip to Island street when we're in Salcombe. Always great food and service.
excellent evening with family. food very well done. Atmosphere really good
Food was excellent. Very nice atmosphere and enjoyed sitting outside overlooking boats. Waiters very friendly and polite but food was slow to arrive. Saying that worth the wait as we were enjoying the ambience.
Really glad to have booked and enjoyed the food, location and service very good. Great place for gluten free too.
Noisy birthday party/ large group which meant we chose to go somewhere else for pudd as difficult to hear each other- a family group of 5 adults- but not unpleasant to complain about.
Would/ will go back again,
Tasty food, friendly service and nice waterside view. A nice evening meal.
Excellent as always. Great food, great service, great price.
Food was good and plentiful. Service good and restaurant manager most helpful.
Need to get Allergy listings correct; chips/sweet potato fried in egg and Ribs have anchovy in sauce but egg of fish respectively not mentioned in the allergy menu. Can I suggest that all fries are cooked on their own - that way allergy and vegetarians can eat freely. And that the chef takes the time to correct every error in the allergy list.
Just a great overall evening. Excellent service lead from the front by the manager. Food fab and plentiful if I was to make a tiny ask it would be for the coating for the southern fried chicken to be a bit more flavoursome but still delicious. Highly Recommend a visit
Lovely meal, lovely atmosphere, ftirdly helpful staff,
All in all a very enjoyable evening.
Visited restaurant whilst on holiday. Staff explained that they were two members of staff short. Website implied a good selection of gluten free options- this was misleading as we had to check a folder ourselves for options to choose from. One of the burgers was lukewarm as was the rack of ribs ( we sent this back to be reheated but still did not look or taste appetising on its return)
This restaurant was not what we expected having visited the 'Winking Prawn' in the same group of restaurants and which serves excellent food time after time.
We were asked if our meal was enjoyable but when we gave feedback The comments were ignored.
A cracking afternoon was spent here with great mates. Food was excellent and well priced. A 1pm start ended at 9.30pm!
Great food, great drinks (2-4-1 cocktails on Fri eves) and superb friendly service.
Great friendly service, very efficient with no delay. good value for money. fantastic food.
We had a great dinner here. Very attentive & friendly waiters, food was delicious and the restaurant just had a lovely relaxed feeling. Varied menu which we plus kids all enjoyed.
Great food, and great atmosphere. Meeting Andy Jordan there was a highlight!
