Enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the Beachside restaurant at the South South Sands Hotell. Needed to book a taxi as we were staying right in Salcombe but it's not expensive. The interior of hotel and restaurant is fresh and modern, wish we could have eaten outdoors but too cold. I had scallops to start- small scallops but delicious flavour. For... More

When I visit Salcombe, this beach and cafe are pretty much on my doorstep. A lovely restaraunt, with a lovely view, of the sandy, clean, blue-watered Beach! The food and drink are truly incredible - one of the best meels, I have ever tasted! I would highly recommend it here!

My wife and I ate here for 6 successive nights on holiday. The restaurant is wonderfully situated just feet from the beach. The menu changed gradually during that time but between us we tried most of the available dishes. Not cheap (three courses £42 a head, and fillet steak or lemon sole cost a few pounds extra) but the produce... More

My perception of the restaurant could not be more different than some of the previous reviews. We are staying at the hotel and had dinner in the restaurant, breakfast and cream scones on the terrace and small platters (tapas) in the bar area. Each experience was enjoyable. We found the meals of a high standard - fresh, flavoursome and very... More

We went for lunch and were very disappointed. We don't mind paying money for good food, but the quantities were ludicrous. The main meals (except fish and chips and the burger - but you paid a fair bit extra for these!) were smaller than starter size at expensive main meal prices. In fact we went to a restaurant just up... More

We arrived for a Sunday Lunch on a windy and wet August day. The location is difficult because of the roads leading to south sands but this cannot be helped - you have to brave the tiny roads leading to the restaurant but be prepared to back up a long way if the need arises. The staff were plentiful and... More

Not quite sure why this cannot be found on trip advisor but it does have a name! Best location on the terrace here for lunch and drinks. Looking at previous reviews - beer prices are a bit cheaper now.

Like the title say's... Great location. However, £5.25 a pint? Enough said. Having said that I found a bargain in their cafe next door, £2.20 for 1 scoop of ice cream! 😮
