Went into Lakeside for our Sunday lunch and ended up being so spoilt rotten with fantastic food that we could barely move afterwards. Everything was exceptional, the service, the smiles, the menu range and the extra effort people there seemed to put into making sure we had a great time. I was a big worried to read some of these...

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions and without fail have had wonderful food, fantastic service and without fail a most enjoyable experience at a very reasonable price. Without exception the staff are most efficient, attentive and very welcoming. All in all most highly recommended.

Generally awful. I used to love this place. It used to be managed by a nice group of chatty, happy girls. They appear to be replaced by a surly manager whose approach to service is so off putting I was too scared to tell him that I ordered fresh apple juice not concentrate from a carton. Generally I'm willing to... More

We went to this cafe at 2pm on a busy Saturday at the height of the season to be told we were too late for lunch but could have cakes and drinks. This was what we were looking for in any case so we stayed. We asked to be seated in one of the empty booths as we had a... More

We were recommended a visit to this restaurant by a local taxi driver. He was right. Very welcoming, excellent food and the atmosphere was superb. Beautiful views of the lake as well. A real hidden gem.

We have just found this place and had been twice - deciding it was one of the best restaurants for lunch in Newquay and surrounding area. You can take your (well behaved) dog and sit on comfy leather sofas and let them eat homemade dog biscuits, or sit in the restaurant itself. Great food well presented but since they changed... More

I love going to Lakeside whether it be for brunch, lunch, dinner or simply a cup of coffee. The staff are very friendly and so helpful. You are never rushed. The food is always delicious. I am a vegetarian and have always found the menu offered here to be a delight. Value for money too. Highly recommended and well worth... More
