I approached with some trepidation having read the reviews, however found this to be perfectly pleasant. The staff were friendly and reasonably attentive. The food was average for a restaurant of this type, with some flashes of better than average to good. The pizza was fine, on a par with the mid market chains like Strada and Pizza Express. The...

Nice food, pleasant and attentive service. Helped us recover after being insulted at the Toll House around the corner and up the hill!

Wish I'd read the reviews beforehand , but found myself in Fowey after a day at the Eden project, saw this resturants and it looked smart, how wrong, we ordered a mixed bread starter with olives for two, not enought even for one, the mains were cold when served and the garlic bread was possibly the worst I've tasted, a...

I should of known how this would turn out given the giant sauce stained menus we were given. Never have staff slipped from overattentive to completely devoid of interest so easily and so smoothly. We were seated quickly and asked repeatedly if we were ready to order within 30 seconds of our buttocks touching the seat, then once they had... More

It wasn't bad. It wasn't good either. I wanted to have a smaller version of one of the main pastas as a starter but the waitress couldn't understand me. So a gave up and order from the menu. I had the salt and peppered squid for a starter and it was cooked perfectly. For the main I had the fruit... More

Will never visit this place again. Ordered a takeaway pizza - the pizza was boxed and ready to the side of us and when we asked the waitress it we could take it she replied - I have to serve other people first! She was stood next to the box so could have just passed it to us. I've never... More

Yes it was a busy Bank Holiday weekend, our visit on Sunday 24th August 2014. Had a lovely cup of coffee as told the wait for food was 35minutes. We did not mind that. However when the Crab sandwiches arrived the brown bread was stale and the sandwich comprised only Brown crab meat, no white at all. In fact it... More

We went to this to eat here tonight. They really cannot cope with any dietary requests that would have them deviate from the norm. Questions about the menu and ingredients had them having to ask everytime to the point that I had a plate of chips as they seemed unsure! I was only asking if this or that has garlic... More

Staff quickly took our party name and told us there was quite a wait. No problem there we were happy to wait 30 minutes due to Fowey being packed for the Red Arrows display. Pizza was very disappointing. We had previously gone with the same couple (we are local) and had great pizzas. This time stodgy thick base, insufficient topping... More
