This bistro is closed and up for sale - this advice might save you a wasted trip unless you fancy buying it - Porlock could do with a decent pizza place again.

Before this place was taken over it was great! I’m afraid we had the same experience as the previous review, which seems odd! “Ran out of pizza dough due to the bad roads and previous snow” which was a few weeks ago?! Very disappointed. So...More

A small, friendly restaurant in Porlock, Somerset. The establishment has just opened and provided us with really good, Italian food at a fair price. It will be interesting to see how things progress in the future.

The team here didn't seem to know what they were doing. They didn't do pizza as advertised. Despite being half empty it took at least 45 minutes to get our meals out and when they arrived, my daughter's burger was burned on the outside and...More

We had a great meal here. Great choice of gluten free meals. Pizzas are all homemade. Layout of restaurant was strange with church-style pews that take up loads of room so there wasn't much space. Right in village centre.

The Mandala Pizza and Salad Emporium is a wonderful new restaurant and takeaway offering freshly made pizza using homemade dough. Its fresh feel has authentic Italian food mixed with an alternative menu allowing everyone to eat together. All the pizzas have a gluten-free base option and we stock vegan cheese so that any pizza can be made vegan or adapted for the lactose intolerant.
