Set foot in Olga Polizzi’s “celebrated” hotel and restaurant – which has “wonderful views over the harbour and estuary” – and, say fans, “you just feel like a million dollars”. But despite its huge potential, it has seldom, over many years, achieved fully consistent feedback: and whereas fans applaud “fresh fish and seafood prepared by a chef who really knows what he’s doing” the odd reporter found the cooking disappointing and pricey, and service poor last year. In a similar vein, its “romantic” ambience has also, on some occasions, seemed somewhat elusive here of late.

Olga Polizzi’s La Dolce Vita-worthy destination hotel has a “superb position in a lovely village” (“what a view”) and “they organise everything very professionally with great charm… except the weather!” The food has always slightly played second fiddle here, but won more praise this year, especially for “marvellous, simply prepared fish”.

Transformed by ’The Hotel Inspector’ Olga Polizzi two decades back, this luxe boutique hotel is a striking spot – all Mediterranean chic, and with stellar views over the bay to the Roseland Peninsula. Reports on its seafood-centric restaurant are more mixed, however, with those drawn by “glowing reviews” apt to leave “wondering what all the hype is about”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
