Restaurant description

Just a pebble's throw from the seafront, The Port Gaverne boasts 2 AA Rosettes and serves up inventive seasonal dishes using produce from the bountiful local area. Settle down in the quaint restaurant with local views, or relax in the snug bar with its rustic wooden features and charming coastal feel.

The Port Gaverne menu is full of traditional Cornish flavours, with signature touches from the talented kitchen. Start off with 72-hour sourdough with seaweed and yoghurt butter, moving on to roast Cornish chicken with pancetta, fresh truffle and parsnips. There are rustic sandwiches that make ideal quick lunches, and a dedicated children's menu too.

Traditional English flavours all feature on the dessert menu at the Restaurant at The Port Gaverne in Cornwall. Enjoy baked vanilla rice pudding, and blackberry and vanilla cheesecake, and be sure to sample something from the carefully crafted wine list.

A charming seaside setting for modern British recipes, The Port Gaverne is moments from the centre of Port Isaac.

    Appalling! Why take an online booking when you’re closed? No indication on the website that they wouldn’t be open. We turned up at the same time as two other groups. Same result.

    Closed when we got there and didn't even let us know. I did fill this form in the day after but got no response from you.

    Was really easy to do an online booking, however, when we got to the restaurant it was closed with just a sign in the window. Would have be courteous of them to at least email to let us know so we didn’t make the 30 min journey from the holiday cottage!

    The food was wonderful, simple flavors with top quality ingredients, and great sized portions. I particularly loved the butternut squash ravioli, the sauce was divine. And our children devoured the Porthilly oysters and moules. We were in the quarterdeck which also meant we could bring our dog with us, which was an added bonus.

    The food was exceptional as was the service. I booked a table three weeks ago but we were put in the bar area near the entrance with the door being continually open and left open at times, which was chilly.. I was expecting to be in the restaurant as booked but were told this was now full. Apart from this disappointment we had a very enjoyable evening

    Our arrival time was 6:15. I had an email stating that I could only have the table until 7:55. The service upon arrival was very good. The oysters were divine as were the mussels. Both courses came out very quick and were spot on. The mains were delicious, and plentiful. By this time the restaurant was filling up and getting busier. That’s where our good service ended. We finished our mains and then sat there and sat there and sat there, waiting for the plates to be removed. We were wanting to order dessert but by this time it was 7:50. We were not approached by any of the waiting team and had to request the bill, leaving the restaurant without having the opportunity to try the dessert.
