Wow what a find! A drizzly day and we went here for a spontaneous lunch. And very glad we were. Up some steps into a light and airy restaurant with a view of the sea. Oysters, fish chowder (exquisite), a huge crab (look at the...More

This restaurant is one of our favourites in Cornwall. The view is perfect and the staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. We ate fish there on several occasions recently. You can choose how you want it cooked, what vegetables you would like and what sauce...More

Just a takeaway on this occasion as we had the dog with us. All cooked fresh after a short wait; we had cod and chips which were very good. Only ordered the small portion of chips but they were more than adequate. Lots of bench...More

We enjoyed an early evening meal at the Beach Restaurant with a view over the Harbour. We enjoyed good service and good food. Can imagine this gets very busy in summer so go out of season if you want to take full advantage.

Very pleased that they managed to squeeze us in even though we didn't book. I had the seafood chowder which was absolutely delicious the best I've ever had. It was a stall to pull some but you really couldn't manage a main after that !...More

Service ok, but main course scallops very poor, over cooked and only six for a main course, definitely not good value as it only came with a spattering of salad and some bread. Not good value at all, won't be back
