We had a birthday dinner for 13 of us. Outstanding food, lovely staff, superb restaurant. We visited here a couple of years ago and it was as good then. Highly recommend this place for fine dining with that little extra something that makes it stand out. We will return....sooner next time.

A stylish restaurant with well spaced and comfortable seating, with background music which is not in keeping with the projected ambience . We decided to have all five courses and we were not disappointed, these were sensibly proportioned, freshly cooked, and delightfully tasty, the wine was also very enjoyable, and the service was excellent. We also commend them on their... More

We've been eating at Couch's since Richard opened years ago. Over the years we've eaten there many times and always have the most perfect experience. The quality and presentation of the food is wonderful, the service is fantastic and it remains our favourite place to eat. Last night was no exception and so glad we'd booked a month ago as... More

Visited after seeing the reviews and can see why the restaurant is busy even though it's November. So would recommend booking. Food was excellent, do try the tomato soup starter, it's not your ordinary tomato soup!! Staff were excellent, could not fault the service. Will definitely visit again.

4 of us were visiting Polperro & walking around took at look at the menu which we found really interesting. Booked for that evening and had a really excellent meal. To be honest we couldn't fault it at all. The food was wonderful, the staff were all very friendly & attentive, making you feel very welcome. We also liked the... More

How I wish I had discovered this fine restaurant years before as I wouldn't have had to visit the many where I have had poor food and service. I took my wife to Couch's restaurant last week to celebrate her birthday having found it by looking at trip advisor and I can say that it was without doubt a fantastic... More

Richard did the food for my daughter's wedding this week and it was so good we visited Couch's Restaurant last night. The service was brilliant and the food superb! Will definitely be going back next time we are in Polperro.
