“Excellent fresh seafood”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Before you enter the restaurant you can view the tanks with crayfish and lobsters swimming around. This was very exciting! We had the fruits de mer platter with fresh lobster, crab claws, mussels and fish. Simply prepared and delicious. There is a lovely view over the harbour with heaters on the veranda so you can sit outside.

“Fantastic seafood restaurant”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I ate here with my husband for our anniversary meal. It's a wonderful setting, in a quiet corner of the harbour overlooking the sea. We ordered the seafood platter which was amazing and too much to finish. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend it,

“Special :-)”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Beautiful setting, lovely restaurant, clean and staff are friendly. Went to the restaurant with a small group for a birthday meal and it was perfect. The food was fresh and very very good. The seafood platter was huge and delicious. When we struggled with opening the lobster, the staff were only too happy to help show us how to crack it open. Probably a little bit more expensive than other restaurants, but worth it. Def going back again.

“Lovely setting for the evening”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

A nice setting, next to the working harbour. We stopped here for an early evening dinner, when the place wasn't very busy, after a day in the sun. It was starting to get a little cooler and, as we were seated outside in the shade, the patio heaters were fired up. At first, I thought they were unnecessary, but they were just right.

There were lots of fish options on the menu, but we both played it safe with the fish (pollock) & chips at about £12 each. Well cooked, and good value.

Quick, friendly service.

I would definitely go back, when not in such a hurry, and try something a little more adventurous.

“Seafood heaven”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

The boathouse had a lovely atmosphere, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was gorgeous and also very reasonable. A wide selection of seafood is available. The location, in Newquay harbour is also to be admired.
