We walked into town after a trip to waterworld with our 2 children (5 & 3) uncertain of where we were going to have dinner. We wondered down towards the Chy bar, a place we remember from years ago and decided to take a look at their menu. The bar wasn't open but we went over a looked at the menu which was situated at the bottom of the stairs, only a smallish menu but sounded unusual and interesting. However, having your kids we weren't sure if this would be suitable. A member of staff was writing on the board, so we asked if they have a children's menu to which she replied yes! Wonderful! But not open for another 15mins (6pm)- not so good with children that were starving!! So we went outside and walked round the block and then feeling uninspired headed back there!

And Im so pleased we did! Greeted with smiles we had a choice of where to sit, and chose to sit looking at the beautiful beach below. Quickly the member of staff brought us the kids menu along with colouring pens! The table cloth was thick brown wrapping paper, which the kids were told they could colour on once they'd finished their picture. This was to their delight and they say happily designing their own tablecloths.

The member of staff was attentive and helped us choose between a selection of yummy sounding options, informing us it was 2-4-1 Thursday on all main meals! Fantastic news! With this news we ordered the satay chicken starter, pad Thai and beef bunny stew? mains with a side of garlic and rosemary chips.

The kids meals came out relatively quickly, both having chicken gougons, chips and sweetcorn. It all looked lovely and fresh and the gougons were homemade. The kids tucked in and out starter came, which had a lovely side of leaves with it and 4 big skewers- plenty to share.

We waited probably 20-30 mins after the starter for our main to come out. Which tbh was fine as the kids were still eating and we're still occupied with the colouring.

The beef bunny thing (can't remember it's name) was absolutely delicious! Full of flavour and meat. It was really nicely presented in a half loaf of bread that had been scooped out, with a lovely side of raw shredded carrots, onions, fresh coriander and dressing. The pad Thai looked nicely presented although didn't look as appetising as my beef thing. Having said that my husband said that it was really tasty and that its appearance didn't do it justice, only because the colours were all quite pale but he said it was bursting with flavour and that there was plenty of it. We also had a side of garlic and rosemary chips, these were more like wedges and maybe had been a little over cooked but were tasty all the same but tbh I didn't really need them in the end as there was so much on my plate already!!

The kids also wanted pudding (of course) and enjoyed a scoop of ice cream. They didn't have any vanilla left but the kids were more than happy with the coconut which also came with strawberries (their favourite!) we shared a portion of sticky toffee pudding with ice cream. Again was very tasty, although for me sticky toffee needs a smothering of toffee on the top which this didn't have but you could taste toffee in the pudding.

All in all a really enjoyable meal, at reasonable prices (made better with the 2-4-1) in a relaxed unpretentious atmosphere.

I went here with a friend for a long awaited catch up & night out without the kids. When we walked in the staff were really attentive & helpful, we were seated at one of the window seats over looking the bay. The menu is great, a variety of new choices that I haven't seen on any other menu in Cornwall & fantastic flavours. Great atmosphere, relaxed & fun. Highly recommend giving it a try.

I booked a table for 20 ladies celebrating my birthday!
The options for food was brilliant and everyone loved it.
We had a glass of fizz on arrival and the staff were so friendly and attentive.
Their cocktail menu isn't to be overlooked.
We especially loved the gin & basil smash ...
Will most definitely be back!
Thanks for a lovely evening !
