Contemporary British
The dome-shaped venue on the Hoe, aptly named The Dome, was designed by architect Tony Irish. The Dome was first opened in July 1988 as part of Mayflower commemorations in Plymouth and started life as a local museum and tourist information centre.

Designed to have the Art Deco feel and opulence of a 1930s ocean liner, the venue’s bar will feature an extensive wine and gin list, a selection of cocktails plus a full range of beers, ciders and soft drinks.

The restaurant’s menu will feature fresh, local and seasonal produce and will include fish sourced from local day boats. We will also be offering traditional afternoon teas.

There will be opportunities for private dining, small weddings and business meetings – all set against a spectacular ocean view backdrop!

    We have been here before. Service was a bit slow but the view is terrific and worth spending time over. We have rebooked to go back next month.

    We had the Roast Dinner which was great value for money and very lovely. The review is low as the service was slow and without personality. We were having to ask for drinks and anything else. Just a happy welcoming smile during arrival and service would have been brilliant.

    We were a party of 4 and our experience at Ocean View was excellent from start to finish. All the staff we encountered were lovely and attentive. We were given a window seat and the view was amazing. We had no complaint’s about the food, starter, main’s and dessert were delicious as were the cocktails. Would definitely recommend and will be returning.

    First time visiting and will definitely return! Came from Newquay for a roast and it was hands down the best roast we’ve ever had, topped with the most amazing view! As soon as we arrive the gentleman went to check if there was a better table for us and he did not disappoint! We have already been looking at the menu for our next visit! Recommended to friends and family already!

    We took friends from London out for dinner and enjoyed the whole thing. It got very noisy as it got busier and was cold when we first arrived. It warmed up as the restaurant filled. The staff were excellent and so was the food.

    Fantastic meal for my husbands birthday. Starters were excellent but only 4 stars for food because Husbands Thai green curry from the specials was a bit bland and daughters rare steak came out medium but I had the ox cheek and everything on the plate was delicious. Server couldn't do enough for us and the atmosphere and views were amazing. Definitely recommend 🙌

    Not good for allergies. Chef couldn’t make any changes to meals for a member of my party with an allergy so they ended up with some dry fish, pretty average chips and peas. For £19.50- very poor. We eat out a huge amount and have never had this much trouble before. Venue beautiful, good wine, service ok- but food and experience poor unfortunately. We won’t be back

    Overall a very nice dining experience with a wonderful view even in the rain. Our waiter was excellent, but there was a need for better training of table staff, our wine server announced on arrival that she hoped that she did a better job with opening our wine than the table before, not something to fill the diners with confidence! Some mucking around between managers and female staff around the kitchen area also caught my eye, which was out of place in a restaurant like that. Luckily my guests did not notice it. Food was lovely as was the ambience. Great setting for a joint birthday celebration.

    The food is amazing but some of the service lets it down. Not sure if it was the noise levels that was the issue but we questioned the waiter about what mustard was in the mash as my husband cannot have any seeds and he didnt understand it was about seeds and not the taste of it. I asked for icecream instead of clotted cream and that was ignored. The waitresses were far more attentive. Overall a good experience but service was a bit of a let down. In saying that we will probably come again

    Yet another delicious meal to celebrate a special occasion. Stunning views, excellent service and gorgeous decor. The only negative is the type of music played which is not in keeping with the setting or ambience. Also disappointed to see one or two other diners dressed casually (in shorts).

    Service and cocktails were lovely. However thought overall was expensive for what it was . Would have like the fish to have been fresh fish and not covered in batter very greasy and breadcrumbs .and the crab I think was from a jar as it tasted like it was in brine . Also would have liked to have been asked if we would have preferred a cafetiere of water opposed to a expensive bottle if bottle water thst they automatically asked if we wanted water and brought that out. The cocktails were lovely and the wine very nice and the table with the view and atmosphere . Would come again for drinks maybe and light nibbles . And possibly lower the coctail prices . Because I have had expresso martini's in other places that are just as good for a lot less . But I guess this is because of the view and where the dome is placed .I cant comment on the other food. But our seafood platter sharer was overall to highly priced for fish that was not fresh

    When booking I was asked if it was a special occasion, to which I replied a Birthday treat. I find this somewhat odd as there is no recognition from the venue, no Happy Birthday written on a plate etc or anything else. Why bother asking?? Food very nice, stunning location, good service.
