On a day visit to the Scillies so limited time to make mistakes! It was a hot day, we were on bikes (separate review!) and wanted lunch and a nice view. Speros provided both. The choice is wide, children are catered for and the service...More

I´ve visited Speros a few times already and always had great food, drinks and service. The location couldn´t be better, you can enjoy a nice view even in rainy days, but if it´s sunny, make sure you book a table in the lovely terrace. It...More

Poor service , tardy and snooty. Food was good but though the place wasnt busy we were ignored by staff until prompted. The food was tasty but it was spoilt by the off hand service and delays. When the soup was delivered there was no...More

The food and drink is okay without being anything spectacular. The staff are nice and friendly but the best thing about thus place is the views which are off the lovely beach and sea as this restaurant is on the beach itself. If you're lucky...More

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.
