Me and my husband had a wonderful dinner on Sunday. We got to the restaurant a bit early and were made to feel very welcome with drinks and shown our table. When we ordered the service was fast and superb! Three courses and drinks in 1 hour! I’m impressed, I didn’t feel rushed, just well looked after with attentive and friendly staff. Amazing and would highly recommend

Great evening, excellent service, we were on a second sitting and felt looked after even though table wasn’t ready immediately, not the CC fault. Food was amazing, quick to order and efficiently served. Already recommended to friends.

This was our last night in Cornwall after 3 weeks staying locally. Our meal was superb- we couldn’t fault it. The staff were all helpful and knowledgable. Again, without fault. Thank for rounding off our holiday in such a brilliant way 😃

Great location watching the surfers as you eat. Service was very good . We wanted a little more time between courses which the staff reacted to straight away. Staff all friendly and clearly hardworking.Food was very good too. Lovely evening.

Food delicious. The young guy we had serving us was excellent and very friendly and helpful. Also when we came back for lunch another day and we realised we had forgotten to order our 7 year olds food as all the others arrived, they got her meal done and out to us very quickly. Highly recommend going there.

I would say the only negative was that service was a bit too quick. Within an hour we had ordered and eaten starters and mains, which felt a little rushed. We prefer a more leisurely meal.

Lovely restaurant with good food, the fruit de merr was excellent. The starters however are very poor value for money, small portions for an above average cost. For example the 'sardines' on the menu should have been called 'sardine' as there was only one and considering how cheap sardines are a bit of a con! Service was very pleasant and we weren't rushed.

Family beach cafe with stunning outlook. Food is plentiful and a good average on quality and presentation. Service is prompt and willing. Decor is different and appropriate for a beach cafe but doesn't add to its ambiance. Early evening mealtimes are clearly aimed at young families and noisy.
