After a few days in the scillies and having been to the galley we thought we had eaten the best food on the island. Speros food was amazing. The children had burgers, the other had fish. Adults had steak, fish, burgers and all the dishes...More

We have eaten at Speros a number of times over the past few years. The fresh seafood was excellent on our last visit and waiting staff very attentive.

We have been here for 3 weeks and this was the best food we have had. Cooked perfectly. Not a large menu (but enough choice) which is always best. Cocktails were good and strong too. Very good value for money. And to top it off...More

Expected much more - good menu and great location but let down by poor service and average food for the price

Doesn't seem to have changed since last year, even though it's changed hands. Food was good, ask for a table next to the window, or sit on the deck if the weather is permitting. Attentive and friendly staff create a nice atmosphere.

Spanish waiter who clearly cannot cope and should have been trained before unleashing him on the public..

There are few more pleasurable things in life than eating good food in a stunning location.
Our menu is designed to complement the setting by providing tastes of the land and the sea as well as meeting the expectations of beach goers who want something simple or light.
Our range of dishes is based on sustainability and where we source our produce is also of great importance.
Of equal importance is the vibe - Scilly is primarily a holiday resort where people come to relax, so by day and night Speros maintains a relaxed and informal atmosphere where people of all ages feel at ease.

There is also plenty of room to sit outside and enjoy the fantastic view. When the tide comes in it is almost like sitting on the end of a pier, and words cannot adequately describe the experience when the sun goes down between the hills of Samson.

In short, Spero's is all about sustainable food done well in a stunning setting with a pleasant atmosphere.

We hope to welcome you soon.
