“Variable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

Ate here twice during our stay in Meva. Sunday lunch carvery was excellent, tasty tender meat (we had beef and pork) with all the trimmings at a very reasonable price considering great location right on harbour. However went back on our last evening and it wasn't so great, prawns were more roe than prawn (sent back and replaced with scallops, which were great) my fish was overcooked but OK and again puds were well OK.is best I can say. Think our expectations might have been raised unrealisticallybut very nice place, good atmosphere with friendly and helpfull staff and great location.

“1st visit did not disappoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

Ate here on our last night of a long weekend and it certainly it ticked all the boxes. Lovely location, good menu, efficient service and great food. Even allowed us to bring our own birthday cake which they brought out complete with a rendition of Happy Birthday.

“Fantastic lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

We had a birthday lunch here yesterday. The food is exceptional - great mackerel sharer starter, sea bass for main and sticky toffee to share for pudd. The staff are welcoming, professional and smiley! It was worth every penny. We were lucky as it was a lovely sunny day, so that we could enjoy the fabulous view of Mevagissey harbour. We would highly recommend The Sharksfin and will be back soon.
