Just around the corner from the harbour we saw the Lytehouse and checked out the menu. It appealed enormously as we were ready for a change from fish & chips and burgers etc.
We booked for that evening and arrived to a very warm welcome. The decor inside was tasteful and inviting. I chose the beetroot and goat’s cheese starter which was a perfect combination of creaminess and saltiness. My partner ordered monkfish tail and chorizo, shallots and samphire smoked paprika aioli which he thought delicious. Our main courses were mackerel with crushed potato and accompaniaments and beautifully cooked venison haunch, fondant potato, spinach and red wine sauce. We shared a portion of fresh peas and smoked bacon which was mouth watering!
Along with 2 beers and a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon the total bill came to £70 which we thought was good value. Would highly recommend.

Visited this restaurant on a Tuesday evening and enjoyed the set menu of two courses and wine for twenty three pounds. We both had a starter of duck liver, different and very tasty and fresh mackerel with crushed new potatoes. The included white wine was of good quality and nicely chilled. The portions are quite small but you can add side dishes if required. Good service and would recommend.

Simply one of the tastiest starters I have ever had. The fresh sardines were a burst of flavour with every mouthful

Really great 3 course meal. Food cooked to perfection (all the best restaurants have a smallish menu - you know the food is going to be fresh), excellent service (detailed knowledge of wines always good to see), relaxed atmosphere. Best meal we had in Brixham during our 4 night stay.
