So so good. Our daughter has not stopped going on about the crab nachos for three days, I keep dreaming of the scallops. Everything delicious. Get there early - they don't take bookings, and it's very small. Great service too.

I never eat mackerel but here I did. My wife had the crab salad - fantastic. Do not leave the place without having the scallops. Fine wine, very good service. T&W Switzerland

We were a big party, the service was ok, however some of the selections were odd, mackerel burgers.....two fish between a burger bun? Grilled fish and tapas dishes not overly tasty. Not sure we'll go back, meals were a bit pricey however not great value.

Fantastic food and presentation, and the prices were reasonable! The only bad thing is that we found this place on our last night in Penzance, otherwise we would have been there every night. If I could give it 6 stars, I would.

We went on a friend's recommendation - and will be sure to be back the next time we're in Penzance. The dinner was wonderful - the appetizers even better - but be sure to save room for dessert.

Great meal after a long day sight seeing. We were mid week customers before peak summer but still booked a table as they were always full for dinner, and rightfully so. The menu options were varied and interesting - to the point I ordered a...More
