We ventured out on a horrible wet and windy night but were not disappointed. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere modern and intimate. The service was impeccable. The menu is small which means everything is fresh. If you like fish you will like this restaurant and in our view is the best place to eat in Penzance.

It was one of the best meals we have eaten. Fish was cooked to perfection & the flavours on the whole plate extraordinary. We will recommend the Shore to all

Tremendous food of great quality. Service was excellent and the entire experience was impeccable. Food was fabulous and had the 5 course tasting menu which was complimented by different drinks with each course. Fully recommended.

A most pleasurable experience whilst on holiday. Bruce went the 'extra mile' to accommodate our dietary restrictions, and came up with some delicious alternatives which were beautifully presented.. A chat with him in the kitchen afterwards added to the enjoyment of the evening. A great pity we don't live nearer!

Was an absolute pleasure eating here, and would recommend this place to anyone who wanted a good fine dining restaurant. Top quality food, and a happy smiley team! Was made to feel very welcome! Left very happy and full.

Dinner for 11 to celebrate my 50th birthday exceeded my expectations. Food was first class, how Bruce managed consistency for so many to be served at once was astonishing. Only slight issue was a mix up on pre-order, but this was quickly rectified. Thank you.

We had a lovely evening with delicious, carefully prepared and beautifully presented food. The two girls serving us were lovely. Next time we would probably opt for the a la carte menu! Sally

Fabulous food and great service. As there were 5 in our party an oblong table didn't really work as well as a round table. A very small point but it was difficult to talk to everyone.

Excellent place to eat. Menu options are limited meaning each one is prepared very well. Bruce must be one of the hardest working Chefs around producing excellent meals on his own. Would like to have some more information on how each dish is prepared from the front of house. Highly recommended

What can I say except that the food was fantastic and the best I've had all year (perhaps in several years!) we thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at The Shore Cafe, every mouthful was a delight! We are very much looking forward to revisiting again in the future and cannot recommend it enough!

If you haven’t paid The Shore a visit you’re missing out on a culinary delight. I’ve been blessed to have had Michelin star food and I can honestly say this place comes really close but so much cheaper than Michelin . We’ll be back that’s for sure

An exceptional meal from an exceptional chef! My sister and I were lucky enough to be there on an evening when Bruce was both cooking and serving (not so lucky for him!), so we had the pleasure of being able to talk to him a bit about his food, and his passion was obvious and infectious. Stand-out dishes for me were the lobster & smoked haddock croquette, and the hake with roasted beetroot, red cabbage and Puy lentils. I had a really wonderful evening at The Shore - I just wish it was closer to home so I could visit again soon.

Second time to The Shore in a month; we had the 7 course tasting menu and again, it was amazing. Beautifully prepared fish, delicate, balanced flavours and the drinks to accompany each course well chosen and innovative. I'm sure we'll be back again.
