Pizza or Indian?

This restaurant is mainly Italian food with lovely oven baked pizzas but sometimes it converts to Indian food in the winter months. Both are excellent in their own way

Lovely surroundings with welcoming and connective staff! The food was also delicious. Can't wait to return seeing as it was the secound night reopening we thought what a success is must have been bringing back the Italian and Mediterranean menu

Went for dinner here yesterday evening. In the winter this becomes a "pop up" Indian restaurant. I went here last summer when it was a rather mediocre Italian. Boy is it a whole lot better as an Indian! Front of house service was rather brusque which was really my only criticism. food was great however, the poppadoms were lovely served... More

We ordered two dishes, a prawn and chilli dish (which bizarrely came with beans) which was okay but the fish dish which arrived although nicely presented was tasteless. Nice restaurant and we could have been there on a 'bad day' but certainly wont be rushing to go again. Sorry!

My husband and I decided to eat here on a weekend trip to Fowey as the restaurant looked smart and clean and the menu looked good with lots of fish. I was surprised to read so many reviews showing it as an Italian restaurant as when we went it was all Indian food. We were told to sit at any... More

After reading some recent posts we were a bit wary when we booked this place on Halloween. I was there with the wife and kids. The staff had joined in the fun and were all made up as green faced witches! The food was good, straightforward and plentiful at a reasonable price. The service was fine and we enjoyed our... More

We booked a table for 14 at the above which was very accommodating of them as they don't usually take bookings. The food and atmosphere was excellent. They accommodated us really well and hopefully we weren't too disruptive to there normal Saturday night. We would definitely go back again! Thank you so much for making my friends birthday such a...

Quiet evening, only ones in, food not very good. Crab shell in the dish, plus other chewy bits. All in all, no atmosphere and other places in town better.
