We dined here when staying in Polperro for a few days for my niece’s wedding at Trenderway Farm. The whole evening in this restaurant was fantastic. They have the ambience just right with the music at the right levels. Our waiter was incredibly friendly and chatty with a great smile. The food was absolutely superb. We could not fault any of the three courses. They even had a lovely dessert wine to finish off our evening with. To cap it all, the chef came out at the end of the evening for a lovely chat. All in all, this restaurant has all the credentials I would expect from a large city restaurant. If you are ever in the area, you MUST visit.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff very friendly. The food was delicious and portions were very generous- just right! The starters - scallops and salmon - were perfectly prepared and served. The mains - fillet of beef and confit duck - were so good. The dessert and cheese board finished the meal with aplomb. We had a bottle of Chateau Neuf de Pape which was very good to accompany the dinner.
The dinner was very reasonably priced given quality of the cooking and produce.

After a lovely week in Polperro, we finished the week at Couch's and had a most wonderful meal. Not only was the food exceptional and beautifully presented, but we were so well looked after by Phil and we loved that Richard came over to chat to us more than once. Restaurants of this calibre can sometimes be stuffy, but this was relaxed, friendly and it felt like dining with friends. If I lived any closer, I would be back all the time!

Wow, an excellent experience. We had the most amazing meal at Couch's last night. Very friendly, very interactive very timely, very happy service all night even after we had finished. Not usually a big lover of soup .. but wow the Amuse Bouche was brilliant, flavours hitting the taste buds with the soup, the butter and the sea salt brioche. My partner and I had Crab and Scallops for starters which were devine.
A generous portion of Hake was fantastic with what can only be called a ring of flavour being an unbelievable Salsa Verde. The trio of desserts brought up the rear with no less pleasure. The chocolate bonbon being the star for me. A wonderful bottle of Pinot helped cement the pleasurable experience for us. Bravo Richard and his team at Couch's, well done for presenting us with the best meal we've ever had.
