Beautiful views, chilled out

This bar is situated right on the beachfront, and offers stunning views of Porthtowan beach. We visited during the day but I imagine the place is quite quirky and atmospheric at night - I think Saturdays feature live music.

Perfect location for relaxing and taking in the view. Not a huge menu but something for everyone. Perfect location, right by the beach so able to people watch, gaze at the sea or watch the surfing. Would recommend for a light lunch or afternoon tea. Perfect.

Been here a few times over the years, great setting right by the beach with road access right to the front door. Nice chilled atmosphere to meet friends for a midweek meal. 1st time we've taken our toddler and it was great for him. Plenty of space to run about and highchairs available to use. We managed to get a... More

Chilled ambiance and gastro food! An absolutely amazing sunset made the evening - a surfers paradise just make sure you've got a wetsuit!

Stayed a few doors from the Blue Bar. Lovely place. Relaxed atmosphere, dog friendly and a mixture of customers. Lovely place to sit and watch the sun go down. Food was nice. Very busy on some days. Maybe not enough staff. Big queues at the bar. We visited over Easter, more staff were needed. Definitely return.

Can get quite busy but wasn't busy on the day we visited so managed to get a window seat with a great view of the beach. Nice food but nothing special. We were there quite early for lunch but they had already run out of the pudding I wanted. Dissapointing coffee.

First time at blue,as recommended by locals. Don't go if u don't like dogs,we took ours on the day of the eclipse,a dog for every customer. Nice simple food cooked well. Note some comments about the wait when it's busy, sit back and enjoy the view, if you want fast food go off to macdonalds etc
