Went here on the last day of our holiday mainly as we had to book. A poplar restaurant with only about 6 tables. We where told at time of booking that we would share ends with another couple, for us that was not A problem but if your someone that needs to get out of there table ie a smoker or going to loo, it would a right pain for both parties. The restaurant could look so much better plastic table cloths !! Etc. It's almost too small not romantic. The food however is good and service friendly if a little disorganised. Would I go back no but glad I've been

Ate here on a Tuesday evening, took the advice and booked well in advance for an 8 o clock sit down, glad we did as the place was full by 8.15pm. We both had the special of prawn and lobster with fusilli in a very rich creamy sauce, you could almost see the calories on the plate, it was well worth whatever pounds we put on, it was very very good. Didn't have a starter as we wanted a pud and enjoyed that with a coffee as well. It's a typical Cornish restaurant, small with about two dozen covers, that's a guess, so book if you fancy it, if you do don't forget the cash as they don't do cards at the mo.
