We arrived at 13.00 as booked to find the building all locked up and no sign of life, according to a near neighbour the company has gone into liquidation and is no longer trading. I suggest to amend your records to avoid anyone else being disappointed. Regards, Peter Faulkner

Great service, we were very well looked after. The food was beautifully presented and very nice. The birthday sweet was a much appreciated and special touch.

The restaurant setting is fabulous and the staff are very attentive. They gave a surprise treat for my Dad's Birthday which was lovely as was the food.

Booked a meal here as we wanted to experience the Italian High Tea but, on arrival, we were shown to the restaurant and told High Tea can only be had in the bar area...this needs to be made clear at the point of booking whether online or over the phone. However, we chose to have a meal in the restaurant anyway and try the High Tea another time but please let your customers know in advance

The food was nice and was presented beautifully. However, the scallop starter was slightly on the small side for the price. The venue is superior, it offers panoramic views of Plymouth Sound. The decor is light and airy, the tables are adequately spaced. Even the loos we're pristine. However we were the only diners there. The service was very good, the waitress was a young lady with impeccable manners and friendly demeanor. She seemed to be very knowledgeable about the menu, which was a bonus. It's always a bit tricky to rate value for money, from a single visit. I do dine out fairly regularly, and love trying new places. Based on first impressions, I think the prices are a little high for the experience. Saying that I would recommend the place to a friend. And would visit again myself to try out more of the menu.

Lovely food, restrained yet attentive service in a stunning setting. This is my third visit to this excellent restaurant, a much needed presence in Plymouth. I love the attention to detail on the table settings and linens. However, there should be cruet on every table.

Sorry to leave such a bad review but from the start it was a bad night. The garlic ciabatta came out with cling film on it and luke warm. We did say about both and although we’d ordered two portions they only brought us one new order which to be honest was then cremated. When the mains were served the carbonara was fine but the lamb shank was cold, from the lamb to the broccoli. We were really disappointed as this was our first visit and it was my friend birthday.

Excellent customer service and beautiful surroundings. We were seated in a quiet area as requested, due to our son's special needs, and staff were very accommodating. The only downside was that the wine prices are really on the steep side.

Villa Amaranta is certainly the strongest iteration of the Dome since the Gary Rhodes era. Great food, good service.

I took my mother to the mother's day set menu, but left the booking a little late. Luckily the restaurant manager went out of her way to fit us in, which was over and above what I'd normally expect. The food and drink was delicious. The service was quick and polite. The views over Plymouth Sound are unbeatable. A lovely experience.
