Description: We are a modern European restaurant with a French twist combined with the best in Cornish hospitality nestling right in the heart of the beautiful port of Fowey. We pride ourselves on sourcing the freshest, local produce available and producing dishes of the highest quality. We have a lunch menu from 12 - 6 every day and then a more extensive and creative Evening Menu. Every Sunday we produce our Sunday Roast with a selection of meats using the same attention to detail we use on the rest of our menu to produce a roast Mother would be proud of! Top it off with our superb selection of wines and spirits, Cornish beer and lager, and you have the perfect combination

“Gorgeous meal!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

This hasn't got the atmosphere or decor of other restaurants in Fowey but the food is beautiful. The charcuterie sharing platter was delightful and the silver mullet my husband had was the tastiest sauce he'd ever eaten! My lamb shoulder was also delicious. Deserts also to die for. I would highly recommend this for the food alone - best in Fowey in my opinion after trying some of the others

“Nice food with pleasant ambience.”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We dropped in early without a booking and were lucky to get a table as it got quite busy quite quickly. It was a nice, varied menu and my husband raved about his cassoulet. My steak was also excellent. I'd be glad to go back if I lived locally.

“Great meal”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

We had a very good evening here with six of us. Pizzas, steak, crab linguine and slow cooked lamb. All excellent with clean plates all round. Good choice of starters too. Good service; not rushed but efficient. A very pleasant evening.

“Very poor service”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Very disappointed due to bad attitude and rudeness towards disabled people. Very ungracious as doors open and people inside refused a drink to disabled elderly lady and not allowed to sit outside saying that they were closed yet obviously people inside drinking.
Management owner needs to take responsibility for this and retrain his staff in manners and people management.
