We had a coffee here and then came back to eat as we were so impressed with the atmosphere and menu choices. The local crab was a highlight.

Specified well done steak & was told there was a button for it on the till so they would make sure it was done this way. When food arrived the steak still had blood oozing out of it all... More

Perfect food, perfect views and perfect atmosphere.

There was also a singer on - he was that good we are looking into... More

On entering the restaurant we were pleasantly surprised at the amazing view...turns out that was the only saving grace of the place. Ordered a glass of wine which was warm, but not being someone to complain this was fine. Ordered the Chilli Beef Nachos and the Gammon which seemed like fairly safe choices however when they arrived I was very... More

This has a nice view, but frankly you'd be better off getting a bag of chips from down the road and finding somewhere else to see the view (there are plenty of spots, so a good view is really not enough to get a good rating in Newquay). The decor here is entirely soulless. Tired carpets, tables and chairs (look... More
