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.

I loved the atmosphere and I’m deffo gunna come back as soon...as I’m back in Perranporth. Perfect location right next to the beach.More

Absolute top class restaurant!!! Food and staff are excellent!! Food is as good as Mayfair standards! Prices are great- you can watch the chef cook everything from fresh. The waitress Sulema was super lovely and looked after us! Thank you Del Mar.

This was our second visit here. It is run by Sulema and her husband William, who is the chef. The service and food are amazing, real home made food. The apple pie is the best ever. We look forward to returning.

As usual we had an excellent meals here over our weeks stay. Always so fresh. Never had a bad meal in all the years weve been coming. We sit outside as we have a small dog but the staff are always happy to see her...and get water for her. Always prebook as they can get very busy. My fav in Perranporth.More

Always a good meal from the Del-Mar! Food is cooked fresh to order and you can see them cooking. Quick service considering all the menu items and fresh cooking. I had the Salmon Katy which was cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious! Probably the...best restaurant in Perranporth food wise and value for money 😊👍🏻 *ignore the negative reviews*More

On holiday in Perranporth for a week we went to Del Mar not once, but three times. It has become one of the highlights of our Cornish holidays. Marvellous food and wine, top class PIzze and pasta and the Swordfish was out of this World....Economically priced, no unnecessary frills, just great food, good service and a wonderful environment. Other people seem to complain a lot about this restaurant, but we greatly enjoy a place where the focus is on first-rate food and a well chosen and well stocked wine cellar. We will be back another year I am sure.More

The restaurant wasn't too busy but there was still enough people to create an atmosphere. Our food was as good as any we've had in any Italian restaurant and we had no complaints. Even though the food was of a high quality it was still...reasonably priced, as were the drinks.More

Amazing choice on the menu. Misto percent was piping hot and delightful, as were the halloumi sticks. My meal of chicken/asparagus risotto was a little light on the meat, but delicious. My guests had the salmon tagliatelle, which they enjoyed. So full couldn't manage dessert.

Very bad experience: They accepted our booking a week ago by telephone. We arrived to find the restaurant closed. They had not contacted us to indicate that they would be closed and both Google Map and Tripadvisor showed that they were open. We traipsed from...restaurant to restaurant to be told that they were full so Birthday girl had to settle for fish and chips on the beach wall! Thank you Del Mar for your incompetence.More

Despite some pretty bad reviews we decided still to go. We booked in advance and found parking right outside. The waiter took our drinks order which arrived promptly. After a few minutes he returned to take our food order.. After a short wait the food...arrived, absolutely delicious piping hot and just as ordered. It’s hard to believe that other guests had a bad experience I can only go by ours which was fineMore

Avoid avoid avoid. Most rudest place i have ever been too!! Im not one for leaving reviews, but if i can stop anyone asting their money then please read! The service is absolutey shocking. The lady is just so bloody rude, she walks off when...your half way throgh your order, i asked her about wine and she just smpy walked off, had to call her back twice! she got all our orders wrong. If your child is 8 or looks older than this but is under, dont get expecting a kids meal, they refused all 3 children kids portions and had to pay full price, because the lady guessed they were 8 or looked younger. Wasted food. Dont get your child to ask for Ketchup either, when my son asked for some withhis pizza, they were mortified. Now if it was a proper Italian i get it but this place the way he looked at my son and questoned him, wheer are you going to put it? The man went man and in italain started venting to another member of staff as he wanted ketchup. The food is so bland and they got one dish completely wrong. Now along with Ketchup dont get asking for extra Parmesan either. They gave us a sprinkle, when i asked for an extra sprinkle he again went mad, a child asked for some on his food and he lterly threw it everywhere. He wasnt happy as i had now had three spoon fulls of cheese on a bland pasta dish. They are just so rude i dont know how anyone would want to go there. The kids left saying they were scared to ask for anything. Then the best part....... They charged us for extra sprinkel of Parmasen £1.50 They will charge you for a box to take home a Pizza, which you didnt order that size... £1.00 Dont waste your money, this was for my birthday and i would ratehr of gone to weatherspoons next door!More

Tbh this place was dead. The owner was rude to a family that went in to the restaurant in front of us ☹️ they walked in and he rudely said “have you booked” to which they responded “no, we rang ahead and got told to...come down as there would be a table” to which he huffed and puffed! Not a good start…. We went and spoke to a woman at the desk who spoke perfect English and was very polite, and then our huffy puffy owner came over and said “why are you speaking to her? She doesn’t speak English” poor woman. When we got the pizzas they were dry, crispy and no flavour. The shack next door has way better pizza, and much nicer owners/staff. Don’t waste your money here.More
