We were art of a group of 15 who had dinner at the Vanilla Pod on 1st January. We had pre-ordered and the food was delicious from the starter through to the dessert. We would recommend this restaurant.

Fifteen of us were booked in for an evening meal on January 1st - having chosen our menus in advance. All was as we had requested, the meals were delicious and attractively presented and in spite of us making life a bit difficult for serving having requested one long table, this was coped with well! Thank you!

Booked at the Vanilla Pod for a birthday dinner. Very welcomed and well served. Starter of prawns, lamb dumplings, and mains of Haddock, Sea Bass and Fish in seafood broth. Lots of spices used which is great. Just need to mention that some food requires an acquired taste specifically the chickpea stew with the haddock. Brilliant end to the meal... More

Well , this was a nice surprise. Called in as we were exploring Lynton and fancied a spot of lunch. Excellent middle eastern choices as well as some delicious Devon scones. Good value and well worth a visit

The food at this restaurant is superb, well cooked and delicious. Delicious mix of English with Turkish influence creating lovely flavours. Booking in advance is a must even in low season.

Ended up here for a late lunch after a Sunday walk as most places were closed. They had a nice menu with lots of choice for veggies and meat eaters. Vegan food was clearly labelled and they had soy milk available for hot drinks. We got sandwiches which were nice and reasonably priced. If we had found the place before... More

We popped in this evening for an evening meal as most places were shut in Lynton. The food was served quickly, and was very tasty. I would thoroughly recommend this place to friends for the quality of the food and value for money which was excellent. The waitress kindly accommodated our two year old in the restaurant/cafe side. At first... More
