We strolled down to the harbour and came across this by chance as some where to set and watch the world go by. As we touch to our seat we could see what food they were eating and it looked great. We ordered the a crab sandiwich which was very fresh, and our little one was kept amused by the crabs and lobsters that were being brought in fresh off the fishing boats and placed in little ponds waiting to be sold. Lovely place to eat.

We had the fruits de mer as a starter and it was excellent. Fish stew was a little disappointing. Rest of main courses were good. Service was very good indeed and the place had a lovely atmosphere. We would certainly go back.

You couldn't get closer to the sea than this restaurant in newquay harbour unless you were standing in it. An inauspicious looking shed from the outside - lovely atmosphere inside. Great seafood (lobsters and crabs in pools outside - come in the day time for a little look as they breed lobsters here and then release them back into the sea) - we had the lobster crab and seafood platter. Excellent I cannot imagine there is anywhere better in Newquay than this.

Surprising good!. At first look we were worried, but we went with it because of the review on this site. Good service, and the food was great. We saw a couple getting the lobster (as shown in a previous review) and it was huge. Another nice place in a great location. Book ahead as it does get busy.

We booked this restaurant for my birthday and from the moment we arrived everything was perfect. We were shown to a table overlooking the harbour and the staff were so friendly. We started with a bread basket with oil and balsamic vinegar, lovely and lots of it and all for only 2.50! My hubby had fruits de mer which was half a lobster, crab claws, mackerel and mussels, it was a mighty feast and soooo tasty. I went for a lobster with potato salad, out of this world is all I can say. We never had a dessert as we were so full. I had a couple of glasses of wine and hubby had a couple of pints of lager, the whole evening cost £77 which I think was a bargain for the quality of food and service.
This was the best birthday meal ever, and would definately go back,
