My husband and I stayed in Newquay this past weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We enjoy finding quality restaurants around London with interesting atmosphere and great food. We wanted to find a special restaurant for our anniversary dinner, with amazing views of the local beaches and harbour and situated away from the noisy tourist crowd on the main street (singles and young families during peak school holiday season).
The Harbour Hotel was recommended by a local tourist agent as being a popular restaurant for good ambiance and fine dining, and also slightly off the beaten track.
We enjoyed our gourmet dining experience (pan fried Hake wrapped in prosciutto served with a side of roast tomatoes and risotto cakes and baked Halibut served with hand cut chips, fresh herbs and a bearnaise sauce)- so much so that we went back the following evening for a more casual dining experience to enjoy a supreme version of traditional fish & chips and a second serving of the delightful roast pepper and tomato soup entree.
Highlights include mouth watering seafood and second-to-none hand cut chips, fantastic service and a breathtaking view of the harbour and surrounding beaches, seated on the balcony indoors or al fresco. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in quality fine dining accompanied by a view second-to-none. It also looks like a lovely place to stay, especially if seal spotting is included!!
Thank you to The Harbour Hotel staff for making this a memorable occasion.
