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 had a delicious dinner at Ocean View. Steak and scallops were our mains, and for dessert tiramisu and apple pie. We chose Ocean View on a sunny evening for the amazing views over Plymouth Sound.

    We we're late being seated at our table. Service was poor.The roast dinner's we're very bland apart from a burnt acrid taste so much so my partner couldn't eat hers. They then tried to charge for the one that wasn't eaten,but when I said it wasn't eaten they amended the bill,problem was we had 3 different waiters. Very poor meal,service and customer care. Wouldn't even give one star if possible. Definitely wouldn't go there again and highly advise no one else to either.

    There was a sweet young blonde girl who was our waitress she came over and took the orders pretty pronto but the service for us receiving our drinks was absolutely shocking, we had to get the bar staff to chase it up Twice, we were waiting each time 20 minutes for two rounds of drinks our food actually came out before our drinks, when one of my friends asked who I think could of been the manger all she said was all I can say is the bar is busy. However the bar area and restaurant was Infact half empty. Terrible service

    The Dome is always my favourite place to go for Sunday lunch as it's exceptional value. We ordered lamb being Easter Sunday. The meat was excellent, very tender. The only downside was the lamb was very fatty but that can't ve helped. Everything else was brilliant as always. I look forward to coming back again. Your team do a fantastic job!!

    We had booked this restaurant for our 8th anniversary, never had been here before and thought we’d love to give it a go. Arrived 30 minutes before our reservation and was able to be seated straight away. The view was amazing and the waiters were outstanding. Every little request was met. I genuinely cannot begin to explain how good the food was. My partner also tried his first espresso martini here and enjoyed it. That says alot. I wish we could have tipped our waiter and or the chef because honestly everything was above and beyond our expectations! <3

    We came for breakfast, on a day when the weather was shocking, wild to say the least, which made the wonderful outlook, VERY dramatic! The staff were friendly, accommodating, and helpful, seating was very comfortable, and food delicious. We will come again, and highly recommend.

    So disappointed in our meal at The Dome. We had a lovely seat in the window but the service was shocking. It took a while to take our order but it took even longer to serve the food. We asked for no sauce on the burgers but that didn’t happen. We didn’t send them back for fear of it taking so much longer. Nobody spoke to us during our wait or asked if we would like any more drinks. When they asked about the food it had only just been served (different waitress). Then it took them 20mins to clear the table after we had finished. They weren’t that busy and plenty my of staff just waiting at the serving hatch rather than checking on tables. Finally we had to ask for the table to be cleared and the dessert menu which they forgot to bring and had to ask again. My steak was lovely but the burgers and catch of the day was awful. The dessert was more cream than meringue so disappointing. We left with no drinks at the time as we worried it would take half an hour. Disappointed as it was my birthday meal.

    Disappointed as I booked a Seaview breakfast for my husbands birthday, but the women at the front of house told me we were less important because there was only 2 of us so they would make less money out of us so we should sit at the back of the restaurant. Not all the parties even turned up! Think you need to prioritise regular guests and ones that show up rather than assuming you will make more money off a table of 3 over a table of 2. Best of luck but we will try the many other seafront restaurants in the future.

    Very good place. Staff is friendly and decoration is good. Food is nice and not too expensive. We went on a Tuesday evening, it was raining outside and a bit too quiet in the restaurant. We don't like when it's crowded, but the opposite on an evening date wasn't great either. Other than that, everything was perfect!

    Food wasn’t great. Had a breakfast each, the poached eggs were boiled solid and very dry, they brought out the wrong bread ordered, and the half a tomato you get on the plate was tiny and shrivelled up and tough to cut through. The sausages were slightly undercooked too. Had to chase staff down to get the bill and no-one asked if our food was okay during the meal. Nice view out to sea but that was the only good thing.

    Great lunch, staff excellent, efficient and friendly. 4 stars for food and not 5 stars as carrots and parsnips were arguably too firm, bordering crunchy and gravy needed a touch more seasoning overall though a very good meal.
