We enjoyed both the meals and the drinks. The room and background music made us feel comfortable. Prior booking advisable.

We ordered 6 mezze to share as a family. The food was lovely but the service wasn't so great - the waiter didn't bring any cutlery for our children and was then rude to my husband when he went to ask for some.

Had dinner here a couple of times during our holiday in Lynton. Good food (particularly the cauliflower & almond soup and the steaks) and interesting vegetarian options. Would recommend but do book in busy times.

Managed to book a table here and enjoyed a lovely meal. As a vegetarian, it's often challenging to find healthy, tasty, interesting food in rural U.K...... not so here! Ottolenghi inspired and delicious food with friendly staff and owners who are clearly passionate about the...More

This is quite a find in Lynton and the North Devon coast. A very imaginative menu with influences from the Eastern Mediterranean, fragrant use of pomegranates and spices. Added bonus of a varied wine list including Devon wines. A wonderful way to spend the last...More
