did not feel like good value thr food was very average and small potions. despite having a small evening menu at 7 o clock they had sold out of quite a few things on the menu. The service was slow and it wasn't busy. Music was too loud . The table had not been cleaned properly; olive stone and biscuit wrapper behind salt and pepper pot . Beautiful location but disappointing experience.

Excellent, great service and tasty food. I would have liked more local fish and seafood options, eg Porthilly mussels. The only drawback is the difficulty in finding a parking space close to the restaurant.

A fabulous location for an evening meal on a summers evening. We were fortunate enough to get a table at the front of the restaurant overlooking the harbour. A fairly informal atmosphere, as one might expect of a beach cafe, with friendly and attentive staff. I had an excellent lamb rump, my wife had one of the ‘small plates’, a crispy lamb wrap. We were pleased that the children’s menu included well cooked and tasty dishes- so often these are an afterthought. Overall, a little pricey for this type of restaurant but given the location and good service, we we enjoyed our visit.
