Don't expect to find a a "posh" restaurant when you visit....... which you must. This is a small bistro style place with a small menu and a great selection of specials. The food is really first class, beautifully prepared and well presented. They obviously bring in top class ingredients. The whole experience is pulled together by fabulous staff and a... More

Having seen the reviews on tripadvisor I booked in advance. Just as well as all tables were full by the time we arrived. Very nice table for 2 by the side window. We each had starters from the main menu of scallops with pea puree and mussels in cream sauce. Best mussels I have tasted in a very long while,... More

Inventive and excellent cooking is the star of the show at this restaurant. Cooking certainly felt more elevated than is usual in Cornwall. Lobster, Chicken Livers and Scallops were all excellent. Portions very generous. Staff were friendly, helpful, attentive. Also, they do a killer gin & tonic.

Went about 4 years ago and was very impressed. Decided to try again this Easter holiday and it was even better than I remembered. Wonderful fresh food beautifully cooked. I had a seafood risotto, kids and wife all had mussels. Good service too. One of the best restaurants in Cornwall in my opinion.

We visited on a wet Tuesday night in March and the place was busy, which goes to show how good this restaurant is. The restaurant is small with nine tables, it is modern, clean with an inviting atmosphere. The food is locally sourced and presented well, with good portions and tasty. The sea food here is recommended. A good selection... More

If you want a combination of good, medium-priced food and a buzzing atmosphere, then this place is for you. We stumbled upon this gem of a small restaurant whilst wandering around St Agnes one night, but were unable to get, such is its popularity. Pleased to say it was well worth coming back for. Nothing flashy, but beautifully presented, fresh,... More
