After being disappointed with the watering hole this restaurant was a little gem! We were really surprised the quality of the food was excellent. The waitress was really friendly and helpful when my husband explained he didn't eat cheese she took away the mouse bouche and bought a different flavour, nothing was too much trouble. The bill was also a... More

I had an exquisite lunch, sea bass in a lovely sauce. We sat outside and they brought us blankets and water and ice cream for the dog. (They have doggie ice cream). Then they lowered the awning a bit more as it began to rain. The appetisers were superb too. Highly recommend.

Visiting Perranporth with friends and initially disappointed to discover it was closed for dinner on Sunday but we booked for lunch expecting standard Sunday roast .....but wow what a fine dining experience Sunday lunch! Delicious amuse bouche, homemade focaccia and choice of three beautifully cooked roast meats with a vast selection of equally beautifully cooked and presented vegetables. Great deserts... More

We walked from the car park and saw this small unit and decided to take a chance. Wow! It is fantastic. Wonderful fish dishes as well as meat all of which is local. Service was excellent and food superb. There was a good atmosphere with the different guests all excited by each other's food. Good fun. Very highly recommended.

Exceptional food, more than we could eat and unfortunately some had to go to waste. A shame given how lovely it all was. Unfortunately the incredibly poor attitude of the waitress spoilt the evening and despite the food left a source taste in our mouths. Not sure that we have ever been spoken to with such contempt when asking simple... More

We were recommended this place and I must say that they were spot on. We went for a midweek lunch so it wasn't very busy but the food and service were excellent. Great extras all for free: an amuse bouche of broccoli and aubergine soup, homemade bread and oils and delicious petit fours at the end meant our group left... More
