Visited the Blue Bar for lunch with a friend. Busy even though it was mid week. The service was good. There was a good selection on the menu with a varied specials selection. Have been going to the Blue for several years and as always it was a lovely, tasty, relaxing visit. Would recommend.

It's worth visiting Blue for the location alone - the glass booths are great for watching the waves, the surfers and the sunset, and it's particularlly good when the weather is wilder. We always visit several times when we're in Porthtowan. It's a really relaxed place and welcomes dogs too. Staff are friendly, the food is good (really enjoyed the... More

This is a place that has problems that I don't see ever changing because it's location (which is admittedly stunning) will always bring people in. You could easily make the same mistake that me and my family did for a fair while of thinking that this bar is great, because every time you come here if it's warm you can... More

We stopped in while viewing a rental property so stumbled across it really, and what a find. Beautiful window seats with a gorgeous view. It has a clean decor and was very inviting. The menu is small, but I struggled to choose as all sounded lovely. The specials board was large and also lot's of choice I would be interested... More

We visited for breakfast and had lovely hot chocolates on a chilly morning which were to die for and the bacon ciabattas were delicious! Try it out!

We were staying in Porthtowan and decided to eat here although with some trepidation following the previous reviews. It was a Monday evening, early on and we had already enjoyed a coffee earlier in the day. It's fairly straight forward, a small menu supplemented by specials and it was disappointing that two of them were already sold out. We ordered... More

We ordered a selection of burgers, falafel platter & fish& chips & fish pie - all tasty and well presented with generous portion sizes. Great booth with a sea view & really friendly staff at bar & table service. Lovely lunch for all. Would recommend! 😄👍

We don't eat out very often but in the past The Blue Bar has always been top of the list for the fabulous setting, service and great food at lunchtime. Last week we had a special birthday to celebrate but unfortunately the food was appalling. The table we sat at had been cleared and looked ok to sit at but... More

We often eat here when we stay in Porthtowan and the food is always excellent although sometimes there can be a long wait. This is because its reputation is so good, the waiting staff are always helpful and the food is outstanding. The atmosphere is relaxed and laid back with some stunning art work for sale - surfing based of... More

The beautiful beach location is what makes this average cafe a success. Although we've never waited less than 30 minutes (and sometimes much longer) for food and the food is nice but nothing special and the staff are occasionally stroppy, we go back. It would be lovely if the service improved, but it won't until a serious competitor opens in... More
