Once the lobster season begins get there early lunchtime as they ran out and sooooo many people wanted the lobster. A beautiful light lunch. One of my favourite meals in Cornwall -... More

I am so glad that we made the effort to go to Port Isaac. My wife did some research before we went and we decided to eat at Fresh from the Sea. The food was incredible. I recommend the lobster sandwich which was amazing. Thank you so much for such lovely food.

Perhaps reading earlier reviews set my expectations too high. Yes the crab sandwich was good, but the menu was limited, and I have had better.

We stopped here for a coffee, and could not resist the purchase of some of the lovely fresh catch on display. The crab was really fresh and tasty, the hake and lemon sole are some of the best we have tasted.. will be making a return visit!

This is the third season that we have visited this wonderful little cafe and shop. We visited twice during our visit, the second time on our journey home. The team here prepare the food freshly and the crabs and lobsters are very very fresh, straight off the boat infact. We ordered sandwiches to collect for the journey home and they... More

Just had a late lunch here with my husband at the end of our trip to Port Isaac. Had the half lobster salad and the crab salad. Both were delicious. Both seafood and salad was very fresh and tasty. Sat outside with our 2 dogs, staff were nice and jolly.

This place is a MUST. We drve for an hour to get here to re-live the memory of a superb crab sandwich which we enjoyed six months ago! We were not disappointed. The food is astoundingly fresh and the service friendly, helpful and efficient! A memorable short visit.

Tucked away behind Ruby Tuesday's you will find this small but incredibly friendly cafe. The lobster sandwiches are simply the best, the conversation witty and informative.

Friendly and delicious sandwiches. We did takeaway but there are a few tables inside the tiny shop to sit at if you prefer.
