A revisit to this restaurant. This time with family who have a passion for sea food and who know good eateries when they see them. We are regular visitors to Stoke Gabriel so know Emma's well but recommending places to dine over a three day weekend takes on a degree of responsibility when choosing for others. With a wide menu...

We went for a Sunday lunch at Emma's and had a enjoyable meal. There is a choice of small or large portion on the roasts. The desserts are also very good. They do not have a licence to sell alcohol but you can go over the road to the pub and bring back a drink for your meal. The staff... More

Once again had a wonderful meal with friends. However, as we were one of the last to leave did find the cleaning up around us a little unsettling especially the use of lemon cleaner on the tables.

This restaurant came highly recommended by the owner of Stoke Gabriels' Lodgings where we were staying for a couple of nights. Having ignored his advice on the first evening, leading to& a disappointing experience at the Castle Inn, this evening meal on our last night more than made up. You would be wise to book ahead as tables are limited... More

Lovely food, freshly prepared so takes quite a while to come to the table. But, we found the service very slow and gave up waiting to order dessert. Shame, because I'm sure it would have been excellent. We'd been seated for nearly 2 hours by the time we decided not to wait any longer. It's nice not to be rushed,... More

Consistency in the restaurant trade is sadly a most elusive beast, however, Emma's has got it well caged and a permanent resident in this little jewel of an eatery. The genuine pride and attention to detail shines through at every level in this restaurant and certainly speaks volumes for the hard work and professionalism of Emma and her team. Well... More

Wandered into Stoke Gabriel intending to have a meal in one of the pubs. Decided to give Emma's a try and so glad we did! Sat outside with our two daughters, who both loved the lantern theme. Service great even though they were stretched as so busy. We all had fish and chips (all three sizes ordered... Great idea with... More

Enjoyable starter and mains with a fishy theme for us. My wife's crab salad was an enormous offering and we decided to do a swap with her having my choice and me hers. Food quality excellent and BYO a good idea. Remember to bring your drinks or otherwise pop across the road to the local pub and purchase from there.... More

We stumbled across this place whilst camping in Stoke Gabriel with family. It's a real gem. We took the table outside which was lovely. Very attentive service and a good choice on the menu. We had a mix of steaks and fish in our party and all was served hot and tasty and cooked to perfection. Remember to bring your... More
