Very good restaurant where we had a great meal, would definitely go back again. The service was attentive and we had a great location just inside the doorway overlooking the harbour.

Dropped by on a Tuesday night after booking a few hours prior. Gorgeous meal, lovely wine and friendly staff mainly. One waiter seemed a bit offish. The arancini balls were divine! £85 for 3 courses and a bottle of red.

We had luck and were given a table without having a reservation. Food was excellent.. Must add that the outside apperance does not do justice to the high quality food served inside.

Words really cannot describe the amazing experience we received here. The food was divine and the service was excellent. This is hands down the best restaurant in Porthleven.

We experienced very good service here, quick but not rushed and very friendly from various staff. The food itself was absolutely gorgeous! I couldn't praise it highly enough. I can't wait for my next visit and luckily it's only ten minutes drive away!
