We hope to eat, at The Cellars this evening, for the second time in a week. During our first visit, we were extremely satisfied with delicious, freshly cooked food, which looked beautiful when served. We had never visited this restaurant before, due to less than impressive reports. The current team of staff deserve every success, particularly if they continue to... More

We'd visited this local restaurant several times in the evening but this was our first Sunday lunch and we will be back!! We both opted for the bread, olives and hummus to share for a starter and both went for the traditional roast beef Sunday lunch (there are other options if you don't want the roast). The starter was ample... More

Definitely have the fish platter or crab sandwich. Really tasty and excellent presentation. Best lunch we had in Cornwall all week. Friendly atmosphere. Sit on the benches outside if you can to watch the fishing boats coming in

We both had hake with fresh greens, perfect parsnips, mash and truffle sauce; matched with excellent starters and deserts . . . equal to anything you'd find in a top London restaurant at a sensible price . . . friendly low key service . . . all in all a perfect evening . . .

Freshest fish we've eaten in this country. Watched the fishing boat come in earlier in the day and the catch. Can't beat that. Then later that night (a Friday), next door to join in with the sea shanties with the fishermen and other Cadgwith Singers. Priceless. All courses were original and delicious and Jack and team made us so welcome,... More

We took our friends to dinner there on a nippy March night and had a lovely evening in this very friendly restaurant with some of the best fish dishes I have ever had. Only problem was we all wanted to taste each others dishes - luckily the servings were big enough to manage this without getting too selfish. This restaurant... More
