Glad we booked, and worth checking the menu... Scallops were fantastic, but the tagliatelle lacked seasoning.

Possibly the worst meal we ever had. There was a 45 minute wait between courses (At least) Drinks orders were never taken - we had to go and find staff if we wanted a drink - then wait around 20 minutes for drinks. When the main meals arrived - of the 6 meals - 2 needed to be returned. The steak was served on a plate covered in blood (Steak should have been medium) The lamb was cold. After the meals had been returned and a long wait, we were presented with a bowl of chips and needed to remind resturant staff that we were waiting for 2 meals that were sent back - not a bowl of chips. Once the meals were returned everybody else had finished eating and even the second time the lamb was uncooked. - We couldn't send back again as we couldn't wait another 30 minutes. No steak knife / asked for French mustard - received english mustard / drinks orders constantly had drinks missing / bread never arrived - The list of complaints was endless - worst experience in a restaurant ever. The only positive was the restaurant manager Amy - she was very professional in dealing with all complaints (Many tables were complaining) but it was evident that something had gone very wrong.

The staff were friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The food - breakfast was very good and the 3 course evening meal we had there were was exquisite, the chef really knows how to combine flavours and textures. The restaurant manager and staff made us feel like we were VIPs and not just standard guests. The views over Fistral Beach are outstanding. We were watching the surfers whilst eating our breakfast.

Massive delay in waiting for breakfast but had a huge selection of continental goodies to choose from in the meantime. Dinner was expensive for the small amounts. They clearly went for presentation over quantity. However, it was very nice.

The food was nice however, the starter came with a hair in it. I did have to say something and This was changed and as I requested for a different dish this was happily done. The mains were lovely and the sides were a good portion however, there was a mistake with one of our sides. The desert was delicious I wanted more of it.

The restaurant is in a lovely location overlooking the beach and the food is very good. However, the service was less good! We ate at the restaurant 3 days in a row while staying in the hotel and didn’t have a very good experience with service on any of these occasions although the final night was the worst. It is difficult to say if the problem was with the waiting staff or the kitchen staff but seemed to be an organisation problem in that we were left sitting at our table for really long periods of time between courses, at least half an hour and on our last night we were left over an hour between our starter and main course. In fact I think our main course was forgotten for some time as people who came into the restaurant after us had ordered, eaten and left before our main course arrived! This was acknowledged in that 10% was taken off our bill that night to compensate for the long wait we had. There is obviously some kind of organisation problem between the kitchen and waiting staff that needs to be sorted out as this is not what you would expect from such a quality hotel. We also had the same issue at breakfast with the cooked food taking nearly an hour to turn up all 3 mornings we were there. It was busy on all the mornings but a good hotel should be able to handle that. Again, the quality of the breakfast food was good, it was just the service that was disappointing.
