Popped in for a coffee on a wet and cloudy day. Great cakes and choice of drinks. Excellent service and family friendly.

We visited Coverack at the weekend to complete the Cornish Pisky Trail and stumbled across Harbour Lights. What a find! Delicious food and the staff were so attentive. Stunning views of the beach, we were lucky enough to miss the rain and sit outside and enjoy the view. I was with my mum, husband and our young children and we... More

A delight to eat and be here, during the day a spectacular sea view on the terrace with great lunchtime menu and cakes galore! Very friendly service from the staff and Chlöé who really has turned this wonderful place into a top restaurant.

This is a lovely little cafe in the day serving really good food but in the evening it transforms itself into an intimate, cosy bistro/restaurant. This is fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere and we cannot fault anything. We were so impressed tonight that we have booked again for tomorrow. We could have ordered anything on the menu as it...

We were staying in Hayle, Cornwall, and had a day out to Coverack. Charming little village. Plenty of benches where we could sit and admire the scenery. We had lunch at Harbour Lights Bistro right on the seafront. The outside seating was comfortable with wonderful views. The service was good and so was the food. We had jacket potatoes with... More

Lots of home cooked snacks, great location right on the sea wall. We wrapped up warm and sat outside watching the waves, eating fresh (shell-on prawns) with granary bread and butter, followed by homemade cakes, with a pot of tea, very nice. Clean, cheap(ish ), well good value anyway, considering its stunning ocean side location.

The chef owner who I believe learned her trade at Jamie's 15 is creating super cuisine. Don't hold back, book an evening meal before she moves on to even better things.

Last night we had a great meal with excellent service. We had previously had a meal at lunchtime but decided to have a meal in the evening. We can thoroughly recommend this experience and advice people to book
