Description: Lusty Glaze Tripadvisor Beautiful brunches, leisurely lunches, cosy coffees and seaside suppers... Lusty Glaze Beach Restaurant is nestled just a short walk from the centre of Newquay, on the North Cornish coast. Come rain or shine Lusty Glaze serves up freshly cooked and locally-sourced culinary delights in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. With a beautiful menu specially created for each season, as well as some rather tasty specials and the ever popular Hot Rocks, this beachfront dinning experience is not to be missed. On a warm evening, it's easy to forget you're still in Cornwall! As well as hosting weddings and our legendary Headliner Sessions, we also hold a free live music evenings featuring some of our favourite local artists. Spanning a range of different genres, these nights are always special, as everyone relaxes and unwinds, glass of wine in hand, soaking up the atmosphere. And even with a focus on top-notch food, it is still very likely that your chairs won't match, your spoon and fork may be different patterns and your waiter will be wearing flip flops... after all, we are still the laid back family-friendly restaurant that we always have been!

“Cooked my own food!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Cooking your own food might sound like a con when you're paying to eat out.....far from it! I had fillet steak which I cooked a mouthful at a time just to my liking on my own volcanic rock! It was absolutely delicious. The chips were yummy too.

For me the best thing about this place though is the location, it was absolutely stunning. We booked for 7.30pm and watched the sun set over the sea as we ate. It was beautiful!

I would really recommend this place, it's such a shame it's a good 6 hour drive away for where I live! Although that adds to the novelty. I hope to find more gems just like this on my travels!

“great food, service, location”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We had our last meal of our recent holiday here, and to sum in a single word, it was the highlight, we had a great location on the beach, watching the waves and the sunset, the food quality and presentation was exceptional, the service first rate (we asked for no beer in our fish batter and that was no trouble), would recommend to anyone.

If there was any cause for concern, then we could have done with a bigger table (there were six of us) and cos we were on the beach, it was tilting on the sand - but I guess that added to the experience.

We selected the 'hot rocks' cooking method - novel idea and an experience in itself

We have recently moved to Newquay but have lived in Cornwall for 30 years and for some reason only visited for the first time a few Sundays ago to watch the Dodgeball final. Of course it helped that the weather was absolutely tropical but it really is the perfect place - I didn't want to leave! In fact stayed til midnight! Ate paella on the beach in the evening and tried the restaurant food as well for lunch. All first class. Best band too! Motown Pirates
