On a brief visit to Fowey, found this place on the quayside. Fantastic view over the harbour and beyond. On our visit, everyone was seated in the narrow marquee style area around the outside of the building. It was early afternoon and we only stopped for a tea and a coffee, but they were good and the service was excellent.... More

We went to the Restaurant and arrived 10 minutes early , were seated at our table and told we could have it for the entire evening as no one else had booked it. The Head waiter was good, we ordered wine and when it came we ordered starters and mains. The starters were good, but as we finished them the... More

Another great location (quayside at Fowey) but overall, just an 'ok' experience. Two mussel and chips, one fish goujon and chips and one dressed crab salad meal ordered and 3 out of 4 satisfied family members followed. The mussels and fish goujons were pretty much ok, if not remarkable, but the dressed crab was again lacking in white meat count.... More

If Food for Thought is not the best restaurant in Fowey it should be! We had an excellent meal and the service was outstanding. The two waiters who looked after us were friendly and gave us good advice on the best food and wine to order. They were attentive without constantly hovering over us and even though we stayed very...

The restaurant is at the harbour in Fowey and the views over the estuary are lovely. I had a delicious crab sandwich and my partner had the simple fish and chips, both of which were delicious. The staff were friendly although I gave up waiting for my bill and went to pay at the bar. The restaurant is beautiful on... More

Dropped in for a coffee after a lovely walk from ReadyMoney car park, gasping...... Saw the plates coming out and my Mrs immediately ordered a crab sandwich, me as a coeliac thought nothing available. Then thinking outside the box asked for some pieces of cheese and a slice of ham with a salad garnish and was served an absolutely wonderful... More

It didn't look out of the ordinary but the food, service and overall experience was very satisfying. No wonder it is popular.

As it was such a sunny day we wanted to eat by the harbour. The weather however was a little breezy so we decided to go inside! It's magnificent - the decor and the service are truly wonderful. The staff are so friendly but also professional and nothing is too much trouble for them. We wanted a light luch so... More
