First meal out and definitely one of the better ones we had on our trip to Cornwall. Staff were attentive (I had my 2yr old with me who was well looked after throughout). Food was good and standard price you would pay in most places. Desert menu was nothing special but we were so full from dinner didn't fancy anything... More

From the outside this place looked really good - lots of fresh produce. The menus came quickly, drinks ordered. We then ordered food and it all seemed to go wrong from there. The waitresses seemed to have little time for customer service. Starters delivered i had an empty glass & had to ask for another. Stuffed mushrooms looked nothing like... More

All is not well at The Boatshed. The food itself was perfectly acceptable; the service less so. Having been hurried into ordering (one waitress was happy to let me order my main when my starter came, the other less so), I decided I would like a dessert too. No desert menu. I had assumed there would be one once my... More

Recently on holiday down in Cornwall we discovered this lovely looking restaurant in Penzance on our first night. To be honest we were desperate for something to eat and were running out of options so we decided to try this place, unsure what we would think. The staff were wonderful, friendly and always there, the food was incredible with AMAZING... More

We came for lunch on our first day and were in love with the mussles so we came back for dinner later in the week. It was busy with a bit of a wait but no issue with that... we're on holiday.. what's the rush. The food again was incredible the most amazing salmon I've ever had with a lovely... More

Great eating place, just across the road from the Scillonian ferry quay. Beautifully cooked food, very conveniently situated. Lots of fresh fish on the menu, though on the Sunday evening we visited they had to take several dishes off, as they had run out of several kinds of fish the night before. Still, the salmon fishcakes and ratatouille we had... More

This was a good find on a Friday evening after coming off the Scillonian and waiting for our night train back to London (on a previous occasion in these circumstances we had gone to the excellent Harbourside cafe, but this was shut). We obviously hadn't booked and on a Friday night they were full. We were able to sit outside,... More
