The Plains, Totnes, TQ9 5YS
This year, Waterside Bistro celebrates an incredible 15 years as a Totnes foodie favourite. With its riverside location, large sunny terrace and reputation for excellent cooking, it’s no surprise it’s well loved by locals and visitors alike. Headed up by husband-and-wife team Matt and Delphine Buzzo, the bistro has recently relaunched with smart decor, a new dining area, delicious menu additions and a refreshed wine list. There’s also a new private dining space for events. The casual dining experience utilises the best local produce – including freshly landed seafood – in plates which range from delicious sandwiches and crisp wood-fired pizzas to smart dining dishes. To start your meal you might opt for grilled goat’s cheese on focaccia, or potted Devon crab with prawns and Marie Rose sauce, followed by the Waterside’s signature beefburger or confit Creedy Carver duck leg. Homemade desserts such as lemon, almond and polenta cake, and crème brûlée will round off any meal perfectly. Waterside Bistro hosts live music throughout the year, as well as special wine tasting and fine dining evenings and other events. Happy hour special offers on wine, beer, cider and lager take place daily between 4pm and 6pm. Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Waterside Bistro is perfect for every occasion.
