Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fun space - tiny but super cute! Rotating menus depending on who is cooking, so if you enjoy it, come back and try the second menu as well, for extra joy! Servings were more than plentiful, and I think they're losing money by serving so...much food during lunch. We were traveling so taking our leftovers wasn't an option, but you can definitely get leftovers with the giant portions. Food was freshly prepared and oh so yummy!More

My daughter and I were delighted to find this vegan gem in Tintagel. The owner was very friendly and the food was lovely! We had mac and cheese and a chilli. Followed by peanut butter cheesecake! Delicious

Really lovely and tasty food, at a very reasonable price. We sat outside and enjoyed the sun, and then bought some puddings to take home. Not always sure when it's open, so best to walk by and see.

Superb food, probably the best chickpea curry I've ever eaten. All the food is home made and excellent value for money. Don't bother with the castle, it's over rated. Come here instead.

My friend and I were in Tintagel on a trip to Cornwall and we found this fabulous restaurant. It happened to also be my birthday. We all had the Buddha bowl which was filled with delights and then shared an awesome chocolate cake. For me,...for sure it was my totally favorite place to eat on the trip the UK. Thanks to the owner who put so much love into her food.More
