    The food, wine, venue and view are all superb, and the service seals the deal ... attentive and professional but relaxed and informal. The seafood menu is magnificent, no clear winner on what the best course was, and the vegetarian menu is pretty special too. One of our group was pregnant, and Stephi and her team went out of their way to prepare special drinks etc for her, making sure that she was happy. Very special evening

    Clearly the best meal we've had for several years - right across the world. Outstanding food, mix of ingredients, locally sourced and fresh. The interpretation, favours and presentation a work of art and yet edible and real.
    The service was exceptional, all the staff unpretentious and very pleasant. No patronising - even by the sommelier (we know our wines...). The vista from our table across the bay unsurpassed. We will definitely be returning

    Outstanding from start to finish! We went for lunch and were greeted at the door by a lovely cheerful lady who showed us to the upstairs restaurant. As we were the first to arrive, we had pick of the tables, so chose to sit near the window with a fabulous sea view. The menus were explained and we opted for the four course menu as we were a little tight for time and didn't want to rush the seven course! All the dishes were excellent. As was the bread! The flavours were amazing, so subtle but tasty. When we left we had the opportunity to speak to Nathan which we really appreciated and purchased his latest fish book to try out some of his recipes at home, although they won't be anywhere near as professional, so we will definately have to come back. Seven courses next time!

    Quite simply, it doesn't get much better than this - our best seafood dining experience since Christopher Coutanceau in La Rochelle a few years ago. A lovely setting with breathtaking coastal views; absolutely brilliant welcoming and knowledgeable staff; and a tasting menu that exceeded even the highest expectations. The matching wine flight too was intriguing with one or two particularly outstanding pairings.
    It's difficult to select favourite dishes, but the Raw Scallops and then the Porthilly Sauce deserve a mention (and perhaps even three Michelin stars!). But then I'm forgetting the Cornish Jack Cheese, Beetroot and Walnut Tart, which was sensational.

    Wow, Wow, Wow - what an experience! My husband and I had been looking forward to this visit for months and it really lived up to expectations and more. The view was stunning (lovely evening) and the restaurant had a calm buzz about it. The food was outstanding and showcased the best of Cornwall but also fish. We had the wine flight to accompany the meal and this was a delight as this enable us to try new wines from across the world. The team that served us - knew everything about the produce and answered our questions in an informative and engaging way - which really helped with our experience Thank you. We would certainly recommend and hope to visit again.
