“Terribly overrated”
Reviewed 10 November 2010

I grew up in Newquay and was keen to give this a go on one of my visits home. Locals advised me not to and I wish I'd listened. It was Brewers Fayre quality, which is fair enough if that's what you're after, but it was nowhere near as cheap as Brewers Fayre. The allegeldly hand cut chips were frozen, the steak was riddled with gristle and there was no garnish at all. So gristle and frozen chips for the bast part of £20. The fish was even worse.

“I am local...this is a good place to eat!”
Reviewed 7 November 2010

Had a really good meal here as a group of 8 people.
Food is of a high standard and is reasonably priced.
The only complaint was that the draught Tribute was not available, get it sorted!
This restaurant is ideally located for the daytime as the views are very good.
Bar staff and restaurant staff all very good

“Scallops at sunset”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

On holiday in Newquay and we wanted an evening meal, looked at a few menus but were completely taken by Fistral Blu. Ideally located and offering a really good varied menu. Everything excellent. The food,the staff,the atmosphere and the position of the restaurant overlooking the Bay at sunset- stunning! A very big thanks to everyone at the Blu.
