A birthday treat, it certainly was. We opted for the tasting menu with no regrets. Imaginative, delicious and beautifully presented food. A short but interesting wine list, local gins and beers. Service was friendly and attentive. A gem in Penzance and a good reason to visit the area if you love food!

The best fish that I have had in years. The plaice main course was superb! As we visited with children, Bruce even telephoned in advance to check their requirements as there is not a standard children's menu. Staff were wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Thank you!!

We really enjoyed our food. It was a very interesting and tasty menu. What the chef did with the fish was unique, we had not seen anything like that before at a seafood restaurant. Fabulous.

As posted on Trip Advisor, we believe Bruce's core cooking to be right up there on a par with Nathan Outlaw. We loved the introduction of the set menu. We look forward to visiting once again en route to Isles of Scilly again next year.

Service was at a good pace and wait staff were professional. Food was inventive with surprising flavours. Fish and seafood was outstanding - really was the "catch of the day."

We've eaten at The Shore Restaurant several times now, and always been bowled over by the combination of flavours and textures Bruce brings to the dishes he creates. On this occasion we chose the set tasting menu - five courses beautifully graduated to intensify the experience of amazing flavours throughout the meal. It's quite a challenge to find a wine that will stand up to such a variety of intense flavours, but we've never been disappointed by the wine we've enjoyed at The Shore - tonight we chose an Albariño which was a perfect match for a wonderful meal.

Friendly efficient service helped make a most enjoyable evening. Chef was happy to make some adjustments to the menu to suit our taste and dietary needs. Extremely helpful and friendly. Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

It's very hard to express in words the experience that my wife and I had during our visit. The waiter (Roland?) was very attentive and informative, the food was exquisite (we had the extraordinary 5 course Set Menu), superbly prepared cooked and presented. The menu and venue may be small but certainly packs a punch. Well done Bruce, meeting you in person capped our evening perfectly (our 5th Wedding Anniversary) and the world of Sound Engineeriing's loss is definitely our (and the food industry's) gain. We are now looking as to when we can visit you again.

All courses were excellent, hake and monkfish particularly so. Service was attentive although young lad spoke rather loudly and figetted with his shirt at his trouser belt a lot which was a distraction.

My wife and l enjoyed the five course set meal which consisted of four fish dishes and a dessert. Fresh fish and wonderful flavours with each dish. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
