You need to make a reservation in tourist season as the seating capacity seems restricted by the kitchen size, rather than the restaurant, which is quite large. Food was very good - we had oysters, fish stew, hake, scallops, all cooked well and flavourful. Service is casual and reasonably efficient. Good... More

Mousehole is a charming town and the Old Coastguard added immeasurably to our stay. Staff are friendly; the service excellent, and our room was comfortable and had a fabulous sea view. The breakfast was to die for!!! I'd love to go back and stay longer.

The location is beautifully situated and the food lives up to the reviews; uncomplicated but sublime and as mentioned by other reviewers the staff are just so pleasant... More
