Where to eat

23 of the best coastal cafes and restaurants by the beach
Published 25 July 2023

Summertime eating by the sea is surely one of the life’s greatest pleasures. These cafes, bistros and seasonal shacks - all within a salty kiss of the coast - are coming up trumps for good, unfussy food and atmosphere. Order fish and shellfish as fresh as the sea breeze, and while booking might be advisable at some (especially at peak times), we list places that welcome spur-of-the-moment walk-ins too. Relax, the holidays have begun!
