Always a pleasure to go to the winking prawn. The food is always of a very high standard. Lunch and dinner was had (on different days) and both times we left satisfied. My partner particularly loves the chocolate orange cheesecake. We will be back next year.

We got married just up the road, had our reception at the winking prawn and come every year to celebrate my wifes birthday and our aniversary, we come several times a year. the food is always good but the crispy shrimps that my son had were embarassing, just limp greenery that no one eats with a few prawns on top, it could be done so much better with a little imagination. The waitress was very nice but the male waiter was not!

Quirky, different with a very interesting fish menu. Great garlic prawns followed by monkfish with really nice medley of veg. Rounded off with creme brule topped -unusually - with stoned prunes. Not cheap but good value for a first class and filling meal. We will be back soon.

A child’s dessert menu would be good. Large dessert’s too much for children who don’t like ice-cream

This is our 5th visit to the Winking Prawn. We visit each time we stay in Salcombe. The Atmosphere and setting were excellent. The staff very friendly and the service was good. The food was delicious and although a little expensive is worth it for the whole experience. We will be back on our next visit

Enjoyed the meal but with a disabled person in tow, we weren't impressed that you have to go 100 yards down the road for a disability-friendly toilet (not very logical) . It wouldn't take much to convert your existing toilets to be disability-friendly.

We have enjoyed eating at your establishment on a few occasions, however not only have the prices gone up considerably, the food was a huge disappointment. The baked cod used to be out of this world, this time it was nothing special. On the menu it says topped with cheese, sun dried tomatoes, basil and pine nuts. It certainly was topped with cheese and tomatoes, the basil and pine nuts were nowhere to be seen. The steak come out cold and had to be sent back. I am afraid we will think twice before returning.
