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!

    I have visited Ocean View twice in three days for breakfast, firstly on 23rd February 2024 and then again on Sunday 25th February 2024. On the first occasion I was really impressed with the food, however, did not think it was as good on the second occasion. Although it was still good but just not as impressive the second time.

    A bit of a wait for the menus and waiter didn’t know what the fish of the day was. Also took all of our drinks and food order without writing it down and forgot one of the drinks. The nibbles menu were actually quite big, enjoyed the whitebait. The chips with the steak were delicious. It was quite busy with birthdays and celebrations but it was ok for us. Overall enjoyed our visit and good food

    It was our first visit to The Dome. We were a group of 5 celebrating my 95 year old Mum's birthday. She has rather a restricted diet but she was about to find a main course and a dessert which she enjoyed. The rest of us had the Fixed Price Menu which was very reasonable. It was a Tuesday lunchtime and very quiet, which suited us. The staff were very friendly and helpful, although they brought an extra dessert they thought we'd ordered. My husband didn't check if it had been taken off our bill, which was remiss of him. We will visit again.

    Lovely restaurant and food, service from the staff was 5 star. We weren't rushed even though it was quite busy. The only negatives were that bar had run out of vodka and the staff weren't able to order a taxi. Overall its still a 5 star venue we will definitely be back

    Enjoyable brunch with the family and great value for money with the offer. The person who served us made me feel awkward about ordering my breakfast with no eggs. I appreciate he was checking if I had an allergy but the way I was questioned made me feel awkward. The same happened with my son and asking for a change to his order. The food took a long time to arrive but overall we had an enjoyable experience.

    We hadn’t been to The Dome under the most recent management and just saw an advert on Facebook. It is hard to believe that our breakfast came to just £17 for two people - the quality of the food was excellent, service fantastic and views wonderful! We will definitely be back for lunch, dinner and/or cocktails! Thank you!

    Valentine's day dinner was a failure. We were not informed in advance that we could only choose from a Valentine's set menu and that the restaurant did not operate their usual menu on that day. We had to pick from a 39 £ pp menu which was nothing special - ended up having a burger (the bagel was so dry that we didn't eat it), duck dumplings for a starter (their texture made them difficult to eat) and chicken parma (accompanied by fries hard as a rock). The two margaritas we ordered arrived at the table after the food, with the glasses being half empty. The staff kept dropping cutlery on the floor which was very annoying and made the place really loud. Would not recommend or will ever dine there again.

    Our server was incredible, I cannot recall her name but she provided me extremely good service throughout and made both myself and my date a lot more comfortable than we expected to be! The food was phenomenal and very fairly priced, with a great selection of drinks too, all of which was prepared quicker than we expected and all of which was delicious!
