An excellent restaurant that we have frequented several times. The tapas selection is superb and there is a great choice of wines. With its relaxed atmosphere and location you might be mistaken by thinking that you are on the Med.

My partner and I were staying at a hotel in Porth, Newquay. We saw this restaurant and from the outside were a bit dubious. So lad we tried it though the food was awesome and the staff very helpful. We were so delighted we went back the next night. Over the 2 nights we tried 9 of the tapas and... More

A group of 12 of us recently had food here on a Friday evening. I can't fault this place. We paid for a set meal and had loads of food including salmon, mussels, king prawns, scallops. There was an excellent selection of food served up to us. There was also great lager on draught. I thought the music was excellent... More

We have been here a number of times and it is still good. As it is still out of season they are only open Friday and Saturday nights but it is well worth a visit. We had 6 dishes between the two of us and this was ample and still room for a desert without feeling totally stuffed.

We chose to visit this restaurant specifically because of the good reviews it's attracted on TripAdvisor, so we went with high expectations. The food was not fresh and was poor quality. The "Selection of breads" was white baguette. The Albondigas meatballs were proper economy rubbish and had all those white globules that ooze out of cheap meat. The squid smelt... More

We visited this restaurant one Monday evening when we were staying at an apartment in Porth bay. After enjoying tapas many times in Spain we looked forward to the experience closer to home and were not disappointed. We ordered a total of nine tapas dishes between four of us and they were all delicious, with the exception of one, Pisto,... More

This small restaurant on Porth Beach is a must each time we visit Cornwall. The menu is fairly limited, but the quality is excellent. Four to six tapas dishes between two makes a very good meal. The house wine is a good price and tastes pretty good.

During our last stay we could not wait to go back here so header out on a Monday night. Everything was just great, the food, the beer, the wine, the service and excellent value for money. We had 5 dishes and when one was not available the owner Phil recommend a dish of Chorizo with beans and it turned out... More

Quality service and value for money were all very good. The waiter was a little stand offish to start with and then became great fun. The owners work hard here and deserve support. The atmosphere was a little lacking but a part of Four should bring their own razzle dazzle. Well done to the workers. Excellent I would go again.
