Fantastic service, amazing views, friendly staff

Went here for a friends birthday and the service was great. Splitting bills and large numbers of people was not a problem at all. Everything was convenient and easy. Toilets were clean and well appointed and there's good parking. Have since also had takeaway from here and it's just as lovely... read more

Cafe India was a wonderful Indian restaurant - great food and service and one fantastic view from the cliff top. I look forward to visiting the Raj in Wadebridge but would also be interested to know what will replace Cafe India on Tristram Cliff - anyone know?

It's our third year in Rock and we always visit Cafe India. Went to go last night and it has just closed down to make way for something else. Hope they reopen somewhere else always had a fantastic meal here.

Was unsure what to have so waiter was very helpful in recommending dishes to my liking. Eat at Cafe India once during most visits to Cornwall. Staff lovely and friendly and a good service is provided. Would definitely... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant and ate here three times during our week long holiday at Polzeath. The service was exceptional with the waiter being very informative and helping with detailed recommendations for different members of our party depending on their personal taste preferences. We all thoroughly enjoyed the meals we had. Couldn't fault the food or the service and... More

We had a meal here while staying at the adjacent campsite. Everything about the meal, location and service was superb. Hope the rumour we heard about the lease expiring is not true as it would be such a disappointment not to be able to come back. Totally lovely!

If you like curry and you enjoy a good sunset then Cafe India is the place for you! Go in Spring and early Summer as the sunset moves round out of sight by late August.

Myself (a local)and my boyfriend (who is in the military and very rarely see) arrived on a Saturday at the Indian not booking (silly me) and firstly got turned away but the owners wife I believe kindly let us have their table. They were clearly very busy but did not fail to be attentive to us. We had a lovely... More

Being from the Midlands a lot of restaurant's have to live up to the local takeaways where we live, I can honestly say that Café India served up a fantastic meal for us as we were working in the local area for the week , food and service were very quick and would recommend Lamb Pathia ( loads of meat)...
