Fine Dining In Plymouth
|| Whether it’s
a special occasion or you just fancy a slap-up meal, there
are plenty of places in Plymouth where you can enjoy a
superb dinner in elegant splendour.
For a taste of history combined with modern high quality
food head for Tanners Restaurant [map],
which is situated in the 15th century Prysten House, the city’s second oldest building. When the sun
is out you can dine al fresco in the enclosed medieval
courtyard, but come rain or shine, the food here is considered
to be excellent, and so is the wine list.
You can also enjoy contemporary cuisine in historic surroundings
at the Artillery Tower Restaurant [map],
which is located on the 500-year-old waterfront fort,
Firestone Bay. Here you can enjoy superb views of Plymouth
Sound while tucking into English food that is made
with fresh local ingredients. The restaurant is extremely
popular so it is worth booking in advance to ensure you
get a table.
If you want panoramic views of Sutton Harbour while enjoying
fancy food then head to the Bistro Bene [map] situated in Dolphin House on the harbour. This restaurant
offers a relaxed atmosphere with soft background music,
and offers a delicious range of fresh fish, tasty desserts
and excellent wines.
Not far from here in The Barbican area you’ll find The Village Restaurant [map],
which specialises in seafood, including seabass,
lobster, scallops and monkfish. They also have a good
variety of steaks and chicken dishes for those not keen
on fish, as well as a choice of Greek dishes for something
a little different.
With views over the picturesque Mayflower International
Marina, the Brasserie [map] on Ocean Quay has been pulling in the crowds since
it opened in 1992. Serving dishes from many different
regions of the world, the restaurant offers a gourmet
menu, a la carte specials and light meals at lunchtime.
Finally, Chambers Restaurant [map] on Notte Street provides English dishes with a French
influence, with plenty of emphasis on fish and game. The relaxed atmosphere is well loved by regulars and
businesspeople, which usually makes the restaurant very
busy, although visitors do manage to get a table if they
book in advance.
