The restaurant is well appointed with sparkling cutlery and glasses laid out on crisp white table clothes. The starters are very good. I had the spicy prawns that were tasty with a generous amount of smoked salmon. I chose the vegetarian option for my main which was good. Other mains were good apart from the steak which was tough.

We visit Mousehole every year and have eaten pretty much everywhere there (all excellent) so decided to try somewhere new. After reading good reviews on tripadvisor I decided to try the Smugglers which I have walked past loads of times in Newlyn and not really given a second glance. I'm so glad I tried it because it is a lovely... More

Walked in and even though busy found us a table and received great humourous service.the waiting staff appear to love their job.

A good choice of menu, including fish and meat dishes, order promptly taken and not a long wait for the courses to arrive.Tap water offered rather than suggesting expensive bottled variety. Invited to share a pudding if... More

First night in Cornwall and seafood was our choice. We'd spotted this little restaurant earlier in the day and took the phone number. I rang and booked for the evening at 7:30, enough time to walk from the other side of Penzance we thought!

Friendly staff, an elegant dining room overlooking Newlyn harbour. Varied menu which is not 90% fish that many quality restaurants in the area are. The fish was superb btw, but so was the pork..

Great food, Great atmosphere. Good views over the fishing harbour. Well paced friendly service. A great place to come after a long coast path walk.
