Best restaurant in Fowey.

This is a very good eating house in the summer as it is usually closed in the winter months.outside seating in the summer gives a great atmosphere in the harbour

This was a lovely location for a quick coffee on a Saturday afternoon. We had travelled here by boat and this place had a lovely outlooik over the water. Great service too.

Location is great, on the side of the quay so the views are lovely out over the river. Service was excellent. We both had a crab sandwich for lunch which came with a nice looking and well dressed salad with what looked like hand cut chips. The amount of crab meat was absolutely huge and these were the best crab... More

Always welcoming here and excellent staff. Very reasonably priced menus at lunch and good specials. Crab sandwich with lovely dressed salad and chips for me, in good bread. Other half had small fish and chips (because he was not particularly hungry...... not sure where he got that idea from) ... only £7.50! and the best 'frondy' batter ever. No nasty... More

We had a lunch for four but did not check trip advisor before going otherwise we would not have and missed out on a truly great meal. The bouillabaisse and crab linguine were just great as well as the grilled John Dory. The restaurant was not overalls cheap but reasonable compared to other meals we have had in the UK.... More

We came to this restaurant as initially we were looking for takeaway and were told by the fish and chip takeaway next door (which was closed at the time) that the restaurant did takeaway. On arrival at the restaurant we were ignored until we asked a waiter what the score was with takeaway - he brusquely told us they were... More

Enjoyed an excellent coffee here from a wide menu & decided to stay for lunch. They offered a wide choice we chose sea bass with vegetables which looked lovely but they had run out it was only 1 PM. Instead we settled for posh fish & chips with tartare sauce, this came beautifully presented with 3 different fish in a... More

We visited last night, lovely food but we were totally ripped off on the wine. My husband could not decide which to have so was advised to have 'a local wine' by the glass.....when the bill came it was £11.75 per glass. We should have asked the price but as they were so friendly we did not think for a... More
