Dont be fooled by the outside of this place. We almost walked right past as it does not look like anything special. Both the food and service were of a very high quality. Seafood was fresh and exceptionally well cooked and there was a pretty good variety of food on the menu. The chef knew his dishes and was able... More

Four of us had a meal, drinks were all fine. starters were lovely, although for the price of the special lobster and prawn cocktail, we expected larger juicy prawns. Main courses came out swiftly, and its nice to be able to see into the kitchen. Sea food dishes were amazing and way beyond expectations however the steak was not great.... More

You MUST go....I recommend this place not only to my friends and family but also the guest's that stay in the hotel I work in. Every time myself and my partner eat here we are blown away. Every guest I have sent from couples to families to business men have all been just as pleased as me which is great... More

This little gem is unassuming from the outside. It doesn't give much away in terms of the simple menu posted outside. But walk inside and check out the local specials and you will be blown away. Seafood is a speciality in particular and when we visited I had the most amazing seafood mariniere of mussels, prawns, crab, crab claws, squid... More

It is such a pleasure to eat great food, watch the chefs giggling in the kitchen and then chat to the head chef after the meal. Loved it!

Visited Butchers Bistro earlier this week. We were very lucky to get a table for two as we had not booked. The staff were very attentive,professional and friendly. I ordered a 12oz sirloin which was locally sourced. I asked for it to be medium pink. Absolutely beautiful. My wife had sea bass which she also said was lovely. She finished... More

One of the nicest restaurants in Newquay. Real friendly staff with a good menu choice. We were accepted after we were let down at another place. I'm pleased we were as The Buthers Bistro cannot be faulted. Thank you for a great evening. But beware we will be back when we stop at Liz & Colin's B&B again!!

Whatever you look in seafood when you go to coastal town can be found here. Taste was amazing, service was awesome, very friendly staff. We went there twice and came back happier both the times.

If it was 1985 this would get 5* but its not. The chef can cook no question all our mains were very tasty ranging from rabbit to fish fillet - the staff were friendly, polite and looked after us well. The atmosphere was ok but to be fair we ate early evening, by the time we left it was filling... More

I'm surprised by all the accolades for this place but perhaps this reflects the quality of other Newquay restaurants? On being seated, there was no welcome other than being told "there were drinks on the back of the menu and a wine list" although the waitress couldn't wait for us to sit before telling us this. We ordered Tiger Prawns... More
