“The Chefs of the future!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

The Cornwall College has trainee restaurant where all the young future chefs learn their skills, baking, cooking to laying the tables. This is a wonderful experience. Really reasonably priced. You go once you want to go again and again. It is organised to perfection and these young people take their tasks very seriously indeed. Try it and you will not be disappointed.

“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2013

The food which was prepared by catering students at the college was amazing. Extremely well presented, very tasty, good size portions and all for a reasonable price.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012

We went there last night in a party of 6 - first time for myself and my husband, the rest of the party were regulars. It was a real treat - the food was very good indeed and all very good value for money. I applaud the students - brilliant job! We are booking to go back late in January! Can't wait

“Excellent, love it here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2012

This is our third time to Cloisters and every time we've come the food and the atmosphere has been superb. The food and drinks are excellent value for money. It's only £8.50 for a 3 course lunch and £7 for a bottle of wine. Nice view of the bay as they're quite high up. We would definately recommmend this friendly restaurant.

“surprising”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

Cloisters was a nice surprise I was taken there for my Birthday I was treated like royalty and made to feel very welcome. I have eaten all over the world and for a training restaurant I was pleasantly astonished with the food I received the bread fresh and everything was hot and appealing on the eye. I would recommend the restaurant but you need to appreciate that it is a training restaurant.
