Beach Bar : Cafe

This is a beach bar/ cafe. Think surfer dudes and bikini clad girls in flip flops surrounded by VW camper van folk. There's sand on the floor. The bathrooms are basic. But the views of the beach are lovely and you can sit outside. The food is surprisingly good. The muscles had a rave review from my... read more

Just so noisy.....loud music not in keeping with the environment. I know nothing I think however will change that! Great views from the bay windows, and reasonable eats.

The blue bar is very welcoming right on the beach in Porthtowan. The food was excellent and the service was friendly, polite and efficient.

The views at the blue bar are the best, sit and watch a sunset while listening to the live music in the evenings. We visited this bar a number of times whilst staying in Porthtowan, 8 of us had meals and they were all good. Despite other reviews didn't think it ridiculously expensive?? Good food and a really nice vibe

after reading reviews I was expecting a brilliant find and was slightly disappointed, we went for a meal but ended up having a drink and leaving, food looked expensive and not a massive choice, did have good views and location is brilliant

We stayed in Porthtowan for a week and visited this bar and restaurant on several occasions. We ate dinner here a couple of times and the food and service are excellent. This bar serves great food whether for sharing (the nachos were fantastic) or for a full meal (do try the burgers). It is very popular with a great mix... More

The blue bar is right on the beach with stunning views great atmosphere great for couples or families. They serve a range of tasty food and usually have a specials board at the bar. The sunsets are amazing here too well worth a visit

This was a bar we visited on our last evening a month or so ago after camping out for a few nights on a mountain biking break. Really wish we had stumbled across this place sooner. Service of food was great and prompt and could see they were very busy. The food was hot and we doubled up on pints... More

My boyfriend is a frequent visitor to Cornwall and raved about The Blue Bar. So he took me down to Porthtowan Beach to show me. We ordered the Belgium waffles and two pints of coke, which came to £15 which we thought very reasonable. The waffles were so good! The staff were very friendly and even agreed to make our... More

Met family at this bar for lunch on a very hot day, all the outside tables were taken so we sat inside at one of the bay windows. This was an excellent move as it was cool and comfortable. Order tapas style food to share. Food was great and plenty of it. Definitely will go back and recommend to friends... More
