Stopped at the Blue tomato for lunch while out walking one weekend. I've always found the food and service excellent, and the view across the camel estuary towards Padstow is fabulous. We tried the Blue cheese and bacon bruschetta, which I would recommend. We definitely will return.

The perfect spot to take in the scenery and enjoy excellent food in a warm friendly atmosphere. The French onion soup is to die for!

A busy cafe with views of the Camel estuary. We had afternoon tea and I've never been given so much clotted cream. It was served in a tea cup which was overflowing! The scones were delicious and large. More jam would have been good.

This cafe has great food and we enjoyed Steak and Ale casserole and battered calamari, both dishes served by excellent waitresses who were attentive and helpful. The second positive after the food is the fact that dogs are allowed in and the cafe has a Doggy Menu, from which to choose several items, the main enticement for them being sausage!... More

This place is such a winner that it's just too busy and they were struggling to cope on a busy half-term lunch. Once we got seated it was back to its best. Just too popular!

This is one of those standout cafes that sets the top standard. The food is expensive but truly outstanding. Today's £14.00 Burger and chip with coleslaw was excellent. Fellow diners had beef and Salmon sandwiches which where top class. Because the venue is in Rock you can expect to pay top notch but for a one off treat it's well... More
