We were looking for somewhere in porthleven to have coffee and cake and one our party had been to Amelie's before. We advised the waitress of what we wanted on arrival and we're told they didn't have much cake, but would 'check with chef', but they did the most 'fantastic coffee ever!' We were seated at the rear of the... More

Amelies did a wonderful job hosting my daughter's wedding reception. The food was amazing and the staff were fantastic. We all had a great evening and cannot recommend the venue enough. Thank you all so much.

We visited this restaurant twice in our short stay in Porthleven. Our first visit was so exceptional that we decided to return the following night. Although the latter visit was not as good as the first I would still recommend. The staff (especially on our first night) where very good as was the food and cleanliness.

I have been trying to eat here for three years! Every time I'm in Portleven they are closed or I am too late. Today the planets were aligned and we made it. We had the hot shellfish plank which was perfect, I also sat at a table which meant I could see the rest of the food being prepared to... More

What a lovely surprise this was. By walking past you do not immediately expect this to be honest. The food is absolutely delicious, we had oysters and grilled prawns. With some skinny fries. Absolutely loved it. Nice touch: they have very nice cocktails, for those lovely Simmer afternoons. Staff is very friendly, but good have been a bit more pro-active... More

We started with very fresh grilled scallops and Cornish sardines also grilled. We had difficulty choosing main course so had a sharing board of crab cakes, prawns ,thai style mussels... More

One of those places that looks good but when you walk in looks like all the staff are stressed because it's busy. Got the only available table looking into the kitchen but it was good to see the chefs working hard. Roast Sunday lunches still available in the evening. Average quality for around £14. Lovely location and great atmosphere but... More

The freshest ingredients sourced from the best local suppliers. A relaxed, waterside atmosphere where you can sit back and relax. Service that's memorable for all the right reasons. At Amelies, Porthleven and sister company Gourmet Picnics we share the same ethos which runs through everything we do. Come and experience it for yourself. Please note in the winter season we do close on a Monday day and Tuesday day, re-opening Tuesday evening.
