We've updated our list of top Plymouth restaurants, according to the newest Tripadvisor reviews and there's a few surprise appearances at the top. 484 restaurants and places to eat have been reviewed by over 200.000 tourists and locals. Without further ado, here's the finalists:
Fletcher’s Restaurant is located on a quiet corner site in Plymouth City Centre behind the Theatre Royal Plymouth. With a lit arched entrance, down a few steps to a relaxed dining room, Fletcher’s restaurant provides a perfect atmosphere to enjoy your dining experience.
While it's only been open for a few months, it's already managed to become a full 5 star rated restaurant in Plymouth, with some people calling it "perfect" and "fantastic", while others say it's just a "posh fish and chips place".
Located at 33-35 Market Avenue, the fish bar has been in the top 5 for a while now, with most people praising the customer service and food quality.
Situated up on the mezzanine, overlooking the historic Plymouth City Market, @Kitchen is run by Chef Pond, who is a master-chef in Japanese, Vietnamese & Thai cuisines!
The Crown and Anchor is a well-known and loved bar and restaurant in the heart of The Barbican with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. A great range of drinks and fresh, homemade food served daily.
The Harbour is another Barbican favourite, but for the more exquisite taste visitor. They take pride in following the guidelines of Marine Stewardship Council, to ensure the best seafood in Devon and Cornwall is served in their locations. Apart from great quality food, you will enjoy the stunning view over Sutton Harbour.
Walking down the narrow alleys of the Barbican you will find the Tudor Rose Tea Rooms & Garden, a little piece of history and the perfect stop for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or just a refreshing drink.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, off the street where Charles Dickens once lived, there's a little gem tucked away on a quiet street. Serving fresh, local and Seasonal food, the Fig Tree seems to be well-loved by all its visitors.
Toot combines a central location with special oriental cuisine. It's a place many locals love to visit at least once a week, and it's a very accesible place, right near two of Plymouth's city centre car parks.
The Artillery Tower Restaurant sits in a 15th century tower overlooking the sea. Run by chef Peter Constable and his wife Debbie for more than fifteen years, it offers great cuisine, focused on sourcing the best local produce, combined with proper cooking, and a relaxed informal service. And the wood-burning stove and exposed stone walls create a friendly atmosphere. One thing you'll notice straight away are the stunning views over Plymouth Sound and the Cornish Coastline.
BONUS: Although they did not qualify in the top list, we think these places deserve a mention, they're the best in their category.
B1. Holy Smoke Bar-B-Que is the best Romanian cuisine restaurant in Plymouth, by far. Chef Fabian runs a tight ship, with great decor, perfect customer service and excellent tasting food. It's located at 94 Cornwall Street, not far from Plymouth's Pannier Market.
B2. Zuzimo's! is the other great Persian restaurant in Plymouth that you need to visit. The place has a romantic atmosphere and the owner is usually around to greet you and make sure you're well cared for. Zuzimo's is on the Barbican.
B3. Dillan's Kebab Shop - after a night out, there's nothing better than a kebab on the way home. You'll find Dillan's on the Ocragon Roundabout, minutes away from the city centre, and they're open until *very* late.
B4. The Gorge Cafe - If late nights out aren't your thing, maybe a massive breakfast might be more appropriate. Pop over to the Gorge Cafe, on the Royal Parade opposite the Royal Theatre in Plymouth's city centre, they've got huge delicious portions for great prices.
