We were met with a friendly welcome, however not in any way particularly warm or personal. Instead of being shown to our table we were directed to the bar and given menus. None in our group are in favour of this rather old fashioned custom,...More

Under its new ownership and management, Squid Ink is now open six days a week and we reckon it's well worth a visit. It's not cheap, but our party of four felt we got good value. There's a good, relaxed atmosphere and the staff are...More

Having visited several times over the years - even during it's previous reincarnation , The Water Rail, we had to check it out under it's new ownership. We weren't disappointed. Our party of 8 had delicious well presented food with stunning amuse bouches between courses....More

I wouldn't call this fine dining. No atmosphere to speak of, untrained staff and very average food. Wine plonked on the table, no offer to taste it, undercooked risotto, tasteless lamb...couldn't wait to get out, very disappointing.

A wonderful place to enjoy some fine dining where one is served by a team of staff trained with the finest etiquette. The meals were beautifully presented and I'd for sure be back again. Well done!

This was the highlight of our week in Cornwall. Service and food, second to none. We ordered 3 courses and were given 3 extra 'amuse bouches ' - all wonderful.

Had the best meal in a restaurant for several years. Absolutely faultless from start to finish. The staff were welcoming and knowledgable and, as for the chef, I expect he'll win many awards for his dishes.

A gem in Looe if there was one, as it is a high end establishment hidden away and serves high end food and has gorgeous paintings. Seafood variety could be much much more, my mum's vegetarian dish was a little too salty. The broccoli soup...More

This is a superb restaurant tucked away in the little streets of East Looe but only 100 metres or so from the quay and the colourful fishing boats which land fresh fish on most days some of which will probably appear on the menu here....More

Welcome to Squid Ink restaurant situated in the historic fishing port of Looe in South East Cornwall.This intimate 32 cover restaurant is owned by Looe resident Adrian Woodward and first opened in 2008. The restaurant itself is housed within a character filled period building dating back more than 300 years.Looe is a pretty seaside town and important Cornish port selling mainly day caught fish from small trawlers, netting boats and line fishing boats, where the highest EU quality level of E (excellent) is electronically `attached' to almost every box of fish. Day boats are considered one of the more sustainable ways to fish, and they also provide the freshest fish.We are committed to offering outstanding service and our menu includes dishes suitable for allergy sufferers or those just wishing to avoid certain foods such as seafood, gluten or dairy. If however you have any additional dietary requirements you are welcome to discuss them with the chef who will endeavour to accommodate them.
