Had a fabulous time. The restaurant had a lovely ambience - we went for 7 on a Wednesday night and the place was busy with a really nice vibe. The two front of house staff members were perfect - there on hand whenever you needed them, but never over-fussy or in the way. They both spoke knowledgably about the menu and made useful recommendations, they were warm and welcoming, friendly but professional. The food itself was unfaultable - cooked perfectly, delicious and incredibley flavoursome and all sourced within Cornwall. A truly special evening and to top it off, was incredible value for money too! There's no doubt that we shall be going to Salamander on our next visit, I can't recommend it enough.

Visited the Salamander while on holiday, really enjoyable meal, even though the restaurant was busy you don't have to wait long to get your meal. I would highly recommend anyone visiting Mevagissey to go to the Salamander

Don't read any of the bad reviews on here! We went for a 30th birthday meal for two, booked on the day (friendly service on the phone) and were welcomed by a nice waitress.
We hadn't seen any prices online and were very pleased to discover a set menu at an excellent price. We both had a seafood starter and chose from the fresh fish of the day options for main courses, along with a very nice wine.
Great service even though they were busy and a nice chat in the pub up the road afterwards. Don't forget it's a village and you're on holiday- relax!

Tucked away little gem! Family run, simple but top end fresh food, not fussy or smart but good honest fare. Quick service, friendly staff and relaxing surroundings, thank you!!

Walked in with out booking, chancing our luck for a table for 2, got the last table of the night. Had a lovely meal, My wife had the Scallops for starters and I had a Hot Crab Pot, both beautifully cooked. For main course we both had the Cornish Duck, lovely, not had better at a 5star restaurant. All washed down with a lovely glass of red wine. Wasn't going to have a pudding as we were stuffed ! But glad We did , I had the Burnt Cornish Cream and my wife had one from the special board, a caramel and white chocolate tidy - a take on Eaton Mess, both a lovely end to a lovely meal.
Even though we were last in and out,didn't feel rushed. Would highly recommend. Hope to return one day but would be more prepared & book a table in advance !

Thank Phil B
