We went as a family group as it was the parents' 64th wedding anniversary. An aunt was also in our party of 5. We were a little concerned that the food might be too fussy or over-engineered for them, but were assured that any preferences could be catered for. Well, from the moment we arrived to a lovely welcome, everyone... More

Didn't look appealing on the outside in a row of shops in what seemed a quite residential area. However, appearances can be deceptive and inside there was a wonderful welcome, a modern restaurant, a much more exiting than normal menu and wonderful presentation of dishes. And for a very good price too. Best meal of our Cornwall holiday - will... More

Visited this rare gem on 29/09/15 and we were totally blown away. We had the seafood taster menu £45 each . Every course was explained by the waitress, and was out of this world. Top class service, perfect food , this place deserves a Michelin star. Cornwalls finest .
