We are grateful to Tripadvisor for recommending this restaurant. It was certainly worth finding in a suburban street below the Law Courts. The welcome was friendly and unpretentious which set the tone for service throughout the meal. The restaurant is relatively small with a small patio available for summer evenings. The atmosphere is busy and bustling. The kitchen is in... More

We went for dinner on 26/7/14 to celebrate my other half's birthday....we had a friendly greeting and shown to our table down by the patio doors,(a birthday card was on the table, a nice touch:-)) ideal seeing as it was so warm. Our waiter Luke was fantastic...he was friendly, attentive, helpful without being intrusive. The restaurant is modern with clean... More

I was taken to this restaurant by work colleagues last night and it was a total delight. The service was attentive but not overpowering and the food was scrumptious. The point of difference here was the total visibility of the kitchen which was open plan and right in the heart of the restaurant. I had the "scotch egg" dish to... More

My husband and I are in Cornwall for our mini moon after getting married and we chose this restaurant after looking at the reviews and we were not disappointed. On arrival they congratulated us as upon booking they asked if it was a special occasion; we were greeted with a lovely card wishing us congratulations for our recent marriage. We... More

I'll keep this short and sweet. This is a lovely little restaurant that values fine dinning, superb service, great wine, and a friendly atmosphere. Whilst the price is above average for Truro, the quality surpasses any other restaurant within the city that I have dined at. Skilled chefs and competent front of house staff make this place well worth a... More

Eventually my husband asked them to close the door which they did and then we much more comfortable. I think air con is needed here so everyone is sitting in a... More

This was one of the best restaurant meals I have had in a long time. The food was amazing, and the atmosphere really lovely. The waiting staff were attentive without being intrusive. I can understand the comments of the reviewer who had seats by the open kitchen, but the chefs didn't shout & we did not hear any bad language!... More

You could not have done a better job of our dinner last night. The setting was perfect, the chap that looked after us was brilliant and the food amazing. I cannot praise this place high enough. Very deserving of their top spot on TA. Within 12 hours of leaving I had already told 8 people they had to visit. Very... More
