We popped in on the off chance. Out of season, and close to closing time. We were made so welcome, and served the most amazing sea-food. Fresh, vibrant, wonderful, not too much and great value. Romantic setting overlooking the harbour, really lovely.

We loved the large assortment of fresh seafood and friendly staff. The place was right in the harbor and right next to the lifeboat house...

This has to be one of the best locations in any town- right on the quayside with a sandy beach in front. They have huge pools with live lobsters, crawfish, brown crabs and spider crabs in, so you can be assured of plenty of choice. Heat lamps and rugs to keep you warm on those chilly evenings. All the fish... More

Had lunch at the Boathouse. The food was amazing as was the service. It was so nice to just sit enjoying fabulous food overlooking the harbour. The only downside was that we were on our way home after having lunch so were unable to sample more of the food on offer. Would definitely recommend and would definitely visit again if... More

It looked amazing and they said it was lush. Everytime we visit newquay we will go for meal. Service is great as... More

Brilliant experience. We got there rather late but staff were still accommodating and didn't rush us. And didn't mind the mess we made attacking the shellfish! My husband had the half lobster fruits de mer which was huge and tasty and I had the seafood pasta which was delicious. Laid back and relaxing location right on the harbour, we sat... More

Not easily visible from the road above, this quayside fish restaurant is a gem. We came across it by accident at an October lunchtime - large dog in tow. And, as these situations so often are when unplanned, it turned out to be a perfect late lunch (we arrived at 2pm) of shared moules washed down by good bottle of... More
