The building itself is fascinating and quirky, with a cosy, candle-lit feel, and on a clear night the view from the roof terrace reaches for miles to the coast. The food is Jordanian, but the menu features familiar foods such as hummus and cous cous, and is freshly prepared and always delicious. The owners of the restaurant are incredibly welcoming... More

Just a big wow all round. A definite place to visit. Price was very reasonable we had 3 courses... More

It is so special to be able to have dinner in such an old historical building. The space is small and the lighting is dim, but the ambience is great and the food is even better. Traditional middle eastern food with lots of options, including many vegetarian options. We had a feast! We ordered an array of starters and mains... More

Lovely castle, an experience recommended for all. Lovely food as always and atmospheric. Shame the waitress is quite abrupt and unkeeping with the feel of the castle. You get the best experience when Menair the owner is there, who unfortunately wasn't this time.

On the 5th November 2016 I decide to treat my 13 year old daughter to what I believed would be an unforgettable experience at Carn Brea Castle. It was unforgettable however for totally the wrong reasons. Don’t ever even THINK about going to Carn Brea Castle on Bonfire Night (or any other night for that matter). The road to the... More

And getting up the old deep stone steps,we were shown to our table, also bit wobbly! It was covered in different materials, it is served in a mezzo style, so just plates of different foods to sample, everything... More

Booked a table 18.30 for 5 people 6 November. Taxis and babysitters paid for to celebrate my birthday. When we arrived no lights on and closed, did not notify us that they had decided not to open. Really dissapointing and costly visit for everyone. Will never attemp to go again and will not recommend to anyone to book as not... More
