The staff here were so welcoming to our tiny travellers. A highchair was quickly set up, kids menus provided and crayons and colouring in. The food was delicious and fresh. The service was efficient and thoughtful. There's also a baby change table available in the restroom if you're lunching with a baby.

Would go here again, and recommend to others. Reasonably priced seafood restaurant close to salamanca without the distaste of gimmicks of some seafood restaurants. Very simple dishes but done well. Nothing fancy about the place, service is pleasant. The place is licensed. The waitress was kind enough to let us try a couple of wines before we bought. All in... More

Very decent main meals here. Probably the best scallops I've ever tasted. Service was great and attentive. Dessert was a big let down for everyone. Sticky date pudding was dry and not at all what I expected - not sure I've had a failed sticky date before? Apple Crumble was dry, uninteresting with minimal sweetness - wasn't eaten. There was...

We arrived in the middle of a very busy Saturday night. Glad we had booked. Despite the crowd the staff were very attentive. Blue Eye has an extensive wine list & interesting menu. We had 2 entrees & glasses of wine. Highly recommended

What a delight to walk in mid afternoon and be greeted with such friendly service. We ordered the sashimi and the fish and chips and both exceeded expectations, especially considering the reasonable pricing​. We enjoyed them immensely whilst sinking a few beers. A great afternoon!

I don't think you could go wrong here for a feed. Great choices of fish dishes but also grill and burgers. Went for a quick lunch with some clients after a lengthy meeting. Had one of the few specials on offer, a pan fried salmon in a Chinese broth. Was awesome. Wait staff were two very experienced guys that I... More

We walked past this little restaurant a couple of times and decided to try the lunch time menu, and were so pleased we did. The staff we helpful, good knowledge of the seafood on the menu and the menu selection was not extensive, but adequate. The special board was hard to go past. The serves were modest but so reasonable,... More

Ate here with family and the meal was wonderful....I had fish pie and it's really delicious and not to be missed followed by green gage crumble, every bit as warm and toast as grandmas hugs. The service is really fantastic and well just go there and eat it's welcoming, fun and delicious Thanks again from "Devonport"
