“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

Had a romantic meal here. The food was very nice although the portions were on the small side. All staff were pleasant and professional. The value for money, reasonable.

The location is out of the way, as we found the place by chance, but is superb. I felt the outside was a little run down and the covered patio area, where we ate, was at best, 'rustic'.

There were a few large groups there at the time, who seemed to be trying to find who was the loudest, which slightly spoilt the atmosphere, making difficult for us to have a conversation.

Will return when in Newquay.

“OK - Not as good as we'd been led to beleive”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

Great setting on the beach and friendly accommodating staff - helped relocate us from a busy stag dinner with no fuss. BUT - two main courses were a bit on the skimpy side (fish, mash veg etc.) nicely done but just on the small side and not great reviews from my fellow diners. Mussels OK - lots of them. The big mixed fish platter was really nice, and should be at £39.00 but the mussels were well overcooked. So had great expectations but was let down and no one wants to go back.

“Pleased to recommend”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

Loking for a good seafood resturant in Newquay, then look no further, this trades under two or three names which is a little confusing, I would recommend it whatever name they use. Great location, great staff, great food. Probably one of the only reviews I have pleased to write. It's not a glamourous place so don't expect it to be, but friendly good atmosphere good food in a word excellent

“Perfection”
Reviewed 22 June 2012

I recently went here while on holiday with my partner. The setting is brilliant with a harbour view right infront of you, literally. The staff are very welcoming and helpful along with a great attitude they carry every minute. The food was the most amazing I have ever had in every aspect. The price is very reasons legit the quality of the food and service by staff. The atmosphere was relaxed and calm. The layout and decor was different but Cody. I live in Bournemouth in Dorset and I would get in my car any day and drive to Newquay just to have dinner there and drive home again. A must for all, especially seafood lovers. A****** rating :)
