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.

We stumbled across this cafe by chance and it was such a lucky find. The views are spectacular and this is the most southerly cafe in the uk. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious I had a ploughman’s which was...very tasty and my fiancé had fish which he said was excellent. I think it probably gets pretty busy in summer so I guess probably good idea to book ahead in high season.More

Stunning location - sun shone for us, which was a bonus. Views of Lizard Point just magical. Staff were excellent, attentive, friendly, helpful and have a sense of humour. Good menu. Toasties, cake and coffees - all great, no disappointments. Shame we live 3.5 hrs...away :)More

We were looking forward to a hot drink on a very blustery afternoon. The waitress service was friendly and very quick but my hot chocolate, waa a disappointment. I declined whipped cream on top but the drink was hot, chocolate flavoured water. Wonder why hot...milk not used to make this particularly as it was £3 or so.More

Wow, this cafe is incredible. We were a large group with 4 separate families within that group. The large party did not bother the staff at all, they managed it without any panic which was nice to see. Everyone got their orders quickly. my family...ordered main meals. The portion sizes were great. On the menu it said chips only came with meals but when we asked the waitress she said it was fine to order just a portion of chips. My husband had a bacon sandwich. The bread was nice and chunky and there was a decent about of bacon within the sandwich. It also came with a decent amount of salad as well. My three year old had a decent portion of sausage chips and beans. The rest of the party all had a cream teas. The staff said they would be more than happy to get more jam or cream if anyone needed it. I was incredibly impressed by the cafe and the staff luckily we live locally to the lizard so we will be visiting again. It was lovely to see that despite the fact they were busy you were treated like you were the only people there.More

We visit every year. Drove today and a cold windy day and sat inside for a change. The food was absolutely delicious. There was a new food on the menu which was mediterranean Sea bass with pesto which was absolutely sensational back again next year...as normal. This is the first time we have been inside as normally its always hot outside. The views are lovelyMore

Very disappointed, have been visiting this cafe for many years now and have enjoyed a few nice breakfasts prior to a walk, it appears this cafe is under new management or ownership, you now have to wait to be seated and no longer get a...choice as to where, if you are a party of two you will usually get shoehorned into a corner as they concentrate on bigger parties, we’ve now had three bad visits in a row, all with issues or missing ingredients, the only consistency is poor quality and not cooked well, at this price point ingredients should be better using local products as it once was, you are now only paying for the view it seems, I will no go elsewhereMore

This is a very nice cafe perched atop the cliffs with glorious views out to sea. We stopped off for a drink and something to eat. The Veggie burger was excellent. To enter the cafe you need to go down the side between it and...an outhouse. The very obvious sliding door is not to be used! Plenty of seating both inside and out, along with friendly and helpful staff.More

We came here for a coffee and cake mid afternoon. I had the chocolate cake and my husband and daughter had a doughnut. The cakes were lovely although I could have done with more cream. The views over the sea were amazing. There is a...national trust carpark a 5 minute walk away. The prices are expensive but you are paying for the lovely location.More

What an amazing place to have a bite to eat. Right on the cliff edge of Lizard Point where, if you're lucky with the weather, you can sit and watch the sea while spotting seals. The staff were so friendly and accomodating and even brought...out binocculars for us to use. We had a cream tea and they were huge. Six scones between four of us and 2 massive pots of jam and cream, absolutely delicious! I could have happily sat there all day.More

The greatest location spoilt by terrible fish and chips ! Having saved having traditional fish and chips all week waiting for that special location we thought we had found the spot !fantastic views, great staff and dog friendly however the fish and chips were a...total let down ! Expecting something really good as advertising fresh fish, we received half cooked battered fish, and thin frozen French fries! Couldn’t eat the fish as the uncooked batter was still coating the part cooked fish ! As we were on a time limit we didn’t say anything to the staff as they had been so accommodating and had already told us these were the last two cod available… sadly a spoilt lunch that weren’t cheap at £14.95 each…. Very disappointed and left feeling unwell all afternoon ☹️More
