What a sweet dog and family friendly courtyard set off the main road in looe. If the sun is out you are in for a sun trap courtyard!!! Great selection of local fresh fish to die for. A glass of wine isn't cheap but it's excellent quality.

Called in with the family one sunny afternoon. This place is a hidden gem just off the main thoroughfare. Three out of four meals were good. One not so. The sea food chowder was so thick it would have been better suited with tagliatelle. Not much of it either. Nice little place but over priced for what it is.

In a hidden courtyard off the street, and worth the very short detour, this place oozes charm. Sit outside in the courtyard where there are watering cans so you (or the children!) can water the plants. Or sit inside with charming seaside decorations everywhere. Food was excellent - pasta with crab was delicious, fish and chips superb too. Not expensive.... More

Good food, reasonable prices, acceptable service. Of course, fish is the centerpiece, no fussy preparations, just plain and good.
