About The Winking Prawn
Practically on the beach at North Sands Salcombe, The Winking Prawn has been welcoming guests for over 20 years. What started as a beach café is now… well, a very busy shabby chic beach café, attracting people from all walks of life and of all ages.
Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, beers, wines, coffees, cakes and ice creams throughout the year, you will find everything from buckets of prawns to big juicy steaks and Devon cream teas on our menu
We had a fantastic family meal, great quality food at good prices. They have the whole COVID setup done perfectly too.
Amazing location. Very friendly staff. Good COVID-19 precautions - including putting on rubber gloves when clearing tables. Impressive. One minor blip... we were reminded the table was wanted shortly for the next sitting when we’d been patiently waiting for some time to place a desert order. But this seemed to be accepted with a friendly smile when we pointed this out. Would highly recommend, but expect the Bill to reflect the location.
The Winking Prawn never fails to deliver whether it’s a lovely frothy coffee you want, delicious cooked breakfast or freshly caught fish, it’s a destination venue, the quality is always exceptional and the service super friendly and efficient.... a firm favourite of ours and one not to be missed !
Nice food and a holiday feel atmosphere.
We had a wonderful time and wonderful food. Even when we noticed a problem on the bill it was sorted very quickly. Thanks for a lovely evening.
Great meal, lovely fish and seafood and good children’s options. Welcoming and friendly service.
We absolutely loved having dinner with you this week! We felt really safe, well cared for and the food was absolutely incredible. We’ve only had lunches with you previously. Sadly we live in Bristol otherwise we’d be in all the time but look forward to visiting again when we are back in salcombe. Thank you all so much!
Usual excellent food and service sets a high standad Difficult with Pandemic but little cold for Al Fresco dining but did not detract from experience would recommend
A fabulous meal - The Winking Prawn transforms from daytime cafe into atmospheric evening venue so very well.
My 8 year old son said that the restaurant was exquisite !! I agree. Great service and food

The food was amazing, great service and lovely setting on the beach would definitely recommend.
Very enjoyable visit
Great food and service. really helpful team who really looked after us. Atmosphere only marked down slightly due to other guests with older children dressing up and standing around our table whilst we ate
