After a couple of years away from the pressures of running their own restaurant and a deserved, long break in Italy, Mario and Lyn Velotti have returned to open Bacco, an Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar in the historic port of Brixham.
Their arrival is another feather in the cap for the growing reputation of Brixham as a foodie centre of excellence.
Many diners will know Mario and Lyn from their 12 years at the Avon Inn at Avonwick and most recently at Velottis in Bovey Tracey. At both these venues they built an excellent reputation for good value, quality cuisine.
The Inn & Spa on the Beach - exuding charm, fun and all the values of a good English inn with the style and comfort of a boutique hotel. Great seaside gastro dining, family friendly (including the dogs) complemented by chic rooms and cute cottages.
Sitting in the sheltered and sunny spot of Babbacombe Bay on the south Devon coast, the outstanding setting and views are breathtakingly beautiful, 365 days of the year. Hearty breakfasts, long lunches and lazy suppers; it's about delicious food made with fresh, local ingredients, simply and creatively cooked according to the season.
Spend your days with a restorative massage or Yon-Ka spa treatment, a picnic down on the beach or take a table on the terrace for lunch. If you're lucky and book early you might bag the prized Captains Table.
Enter the world of Yon-Ka for a unique aromatic experience where every fragrance brings harmony. Yon-Ka gives you over 50 years of experience through a wide array of holistic, custom treatments providing instant visible results. Suitable for Women and Men.
Treatments are available daily from 8am till 7pm by appointment to both residents and non-residents. Please arrive in the spa reception 15 minutes prior to your appointment. Bespoke treatment combination packages can be arranged and gift vouchers are available on request.
