Had some of the most amazing starters ever!! The monk fish must be had. The chateau briands were nice but there was a problem with the order which out a slight dampner on the meal but the starters most certainly over-looked this and the owner (assumed) took care of us and gave us a discount on the bill as a...

Great place to enjoy a special dinner in Penzance. Innovative menu that is vegetarian friendly with lots of options to cater to different dietary requirements. The meal can be a bit pricey but is worth it.

Crab soup which smelt divine, crab salad which melted in the mouth. Chargrilled lamb and also a massive (eat your heart out, Homer Simpson!) T... More
