We visited The Smugglers after reading a foodie review in one of the Cornish Magazines/Papers left in our holiday cottage. We booked a table on the basis that the review read well, and sounded child friendly, with a good view of Newlyn Harbour. Unfortunately for us, the evening that we had booked the weather was dreadful, stormy with heavy rain.... More

Thought the place was delightful, the art work hanging in the restaurant area was vibrant and full of life, the service was first class and the food fantastic. The Blackened Cod with Chilli potatoes was outstanding could eat it all day! A great way to finish our... More

Until shortly before I left, this restaurant was right on course for a four, possibly five star review. The food was great - duck pate, fresh fish. Local produce, presented well, and with some interesting flavours - the blackened cod, which was surprisingly spicy, for example. Front of house was extremely welcoming and chatty, placing me in a seat by... More

Visited last week for a 50th birthday meal, this restuarant is a fish lovers paradise! If you are not keen on fish then choices are limited. The fish is excellent however and I would say it is on a par if not better then Rick Stein's restuarant in Padstow!

Food was delicious and you really get a lot for your money. A fish lovers paradise with a number of choices on both the starters and mains, all caught fresh from the Newlyn fishing boats! The service was excellent, the hostess was very friendly and welcoming. Seats at the window provide a glorious view of the fishing boats in the... More

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.
