Three of us each had a very tasty (and very fresh) crab sandwich lunch. Beautifully served with salad and crunchy homemade coleslaw. Two others had a brie and bacon ciabatta each (with chops & coleslaw) which they very much enjoyed. The other food we saw...More

I normally wouldn't write a review about a place like this as indeed, it is what it is which is just a cafe (albeit a pleasant cafe) & of course as everyone has already said, the view really is to die for. One of the...More

I reviewed the Lookout Cafe two years ago when I had a fabulous crab sandwich there and gave it five stars. Since then, we've returned a few times and have, unfortunately, been disappointed each time but only by relatively minor issues relating to service etc....More

A good start to the day, breakfast with a large cup of hot coffee, outside at The Lookout. There’s a good selection to choose from and they all look appetising.

Yet another lovely little cafe, perched right on the top of Bowleaze. The views alone are worth just sitting there with a cream tea or ice cream.

I’ve been going to the Lookout for many years now with family and friends. It’s such a pleasant place to have something to eat, have a drink and chill, and even to have an ice cream when it’s sunny out (which is rare). The lookout...More

A great place for breakfast, coffee & cake or lunch, staff are very friendly and the meals are very tasty. No better place on a sunny day for a lovely crab sandwich or a full English on a cold winter morning.

While serving up cakes coffee and Dorset tea most of the time, the Lookout Cafe also serves tasty local fish and chips, fresh crab sandwiches, and salads of all types. Well worth eating there just for the view over Weymouth and Portland.
