“Exceptional service and terrific food!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Visited Couch's last night where we were made to feel very welcome. We had a dog with us so they kindly set up a table outside which made for a fantastic alfresco experience. All of the food was of a very high standard, cooked perfectly and delicious. A really nice touch for the chef/owner Richard to come out and chat with us too, a really top experience.

“Best meal we've had in a long time”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We were going to book at Couch's after a friend recommended it, shortly afterwards we won some vouchers in our football club raffle which were kindly donated by Couch's so we booked in and chose the 7 course tasting menu. We were expecting teeny little portions but it wasn't like that at all. The chef discussed what we did and didn't like and every single course was just divine. By course 7 I confess that I had to let my husband eat most of it because I couldn't squeeze in another thing. It really was the best meal we've eaten for ages, excellent service and a wonderful experience all round. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Reviewed 15 July 2014

The evening my wife my family and myself spent in COUCH,S was wonderful the restaurant has a nice comfortable , modern ,feeling the staff only added to this with their professional and nothing was to much approach, and then the food which was in my mind excellent their was six of us and four had fillet of beef and each asked for it to be cooked in a different way the result was perfect the request,s where carried out to the letter, mt fish was also perfect .any one wishing to eat out in Polperro would be foolish to miss COUCH,S

“Superb food, excellent venue”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Many "seaside" restaurants are just upmarket fish & chip shops but Couch's is different. This is a high quality restaurant serving the finest food in excellent surroundings. The menu is well thought out and offers a good range of dishes suited to all tastes. The food is cooked to perfection and served with great charm and professionalism. It is difficult to recommend this restaurant too highly or to think of a way in which it could be improved. One point to note is that the restaurant is located in central Polperro, just off the harbour, and is approximately half-mile from the nearest car park.
