We popped in for a coffee and got given some olives and even had some fantastic marshmallows with a hot chocolate. Nice place, excellent service

This was an exceptional meal. A very high quality menu, with particularly unexpected and tasty mid course extras. The wine was disappointingly expensive for mid range quality. Service pleasantly friendly, attentive and efficient. Wonderful place for that special occasion or,whenever one wants to treat oneself!

I would had preferred to leave 3 1/2 points out of 5 but trip advisor doesn't allow for 1/2 points. Good food but we didn't think it was value for money. £9 for soup in my opinion is too expensive and similar prices for desserts....More

The photos speak for themselves here really. We were sent beautifully presented amuse bouche's to try in between courses too. It was a rather fabulous adventure for my pallet!!

I had an exquisite lunch, sea bass in a lovely sauce. We sat outside and they brought us blankets and water and ice cream for the dog. (They have doggie ice cream). Then they lowered the awning a bit more as it began to rain....More

Is there a children's menu and is it suitable for well behaved children and babies?

I didnt notice a children's menu. In the evening I would say not suitable as it has quite a grown up feeling and quite small. If in any doubt contact the restaurant as they were very helpful when I rang up.

For us price was not the main reason we decided to eat at the Pavilion Boat Shed. Instead it was based on the quality of local produce used and the reputation of the chef who, we believe, has worked in Michelin Star... More

We offer fresh local food served at the heart of Perranporth beachfront. Our unique open plan restaurant allows you to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner while over looking Perranporth beach. Whether it's a quick stop before wandering round the shops or a relaxing dinner, the Pavilion Boatshed Restaurant is the perfect space to sit and watch the world go by. We take inspiration from our stunning surroundings and work closely with nearby producers to use a selection of Cornish seafood, freshly grown vegetables and locally bred meat as our main ingredients to create the very best Cornish cuisine. All this paired with a variety of drinks ranging from Cornish ales to a fine selection of champagne.
