We came across the restaurant by accident by wondering off down one of Looe’s little alleyway although I do think there was a sign to point you in that direction. The food was very good and in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Perfect!

Slow service. Tasteless and over done thai fish cakes. Sea food platter was just cold salty sea food placed on a plate. No skill involved. Very expensive for poor food and slow service.
