We spent our last evening with a meal here and it was certainly an excellent choice. All 5 of us enjoyed the food and wine and nothing was left on our plates and would certainly recommend. The ambience in the restaurant was also lovely

Description
Relaxed dining with a stunning ocean view of the the Atlantic Ocean forming a jaw-dropping vista towards the setting sun, this is a relaxed restaurant offering the finest Cornish breakfasts, dinners and Sunday lunches. There is a strong emphasis on serving locally sourced produce, such as Newquay Bay lobster or Carnanton Estate pheasant. You will be served by friendly and knowledgable staff, who have been known to point out dolphins frolicking in the waves outside.
