We booked for a Thursday evening, at the end of our holiday, in sept. We were not disappointed . Lovely food,staff were very attentive and polite. We also sat at the window over looking the beach, and were treated to a wonderful, display from the bottle nose dolphins and a seal, just off the shore. They were herding the little... More

This restaurant was only open on Friday evening but it is the end of the season. Good friendly service. My salt and pepper squid starter was excellent as was the seafood pasta. My husband had beef stroganoff and said it was wonderful. All washed down with a nice glass of wine - well recommended.

We ordered the crab to be then told that they don't have any (so way advertise you have). The rest of the menu was ok but nothing new. Ending up having... More

Good views but expensive for what you get. Tables cluttered and food poor. This place is only busy because of its position

Stopped off for breakfast which was quite good and served very quickly. Friendly staff. Convenient location near the car park and harbour. Views of dolphins from our table.

We have just returned from a lovely and sunny week in New Quay (Wales). During our time there we spent several mornings on the beach, and visited the Old watch House for a spot of lunch, the menu was average but the people were lovely. We decided that we would go back one evening to see what was on offer,... More

The daily special of fresh crab sandwich tempted me in! It was beautiful and fresh. My parents shared an omelet-which they raved about ALL the next day so we had to re-visit for them to get another fix. My husband had the lasagne the second time which looked delicious. The baileys lattes are lovely!! The location of this restaurant is... More

We dined here one evening, my wife and daughters were happy with their choice off the menu, I picked an expensive steak which was very poor. The waitress spilt some of our drinks when bringing them but never came back and wiped the table so we had to use our servietes to dry the table. The waitress's were friendly just... More

stunning sea views (saw dolphins from the window seat!), helpful staff, great coffee, good food. Pretty good value for the location too. They have some gluten free options, not much in the way of gluten free & vegan though. Still - definitely recommended and I'll be going back again.
