I visited here with my daughter on a lunchtime visit to Truro. Service was excellent and the food was unique, different and (importantly!) hot. We had a lovely meal in pleasant surroundings and will be definitely visiting again. The pulled pork is to die for!!

Always lively. Great value food, all freshly cooked. Children's favourite desert is "camp fire" - roasted marshmallows at the table with plenty of chocolate to fondue.

Superb value for the most delish food. 8 hungry people from ages 10 to 77 very well fed and full as an egg for £10 per head. The food never fails and offers something for all tastes. We sampled the homemade seasonal blood orange sloe gin cocktail which was as scrumpy as it sounded. Working on a excuse for the... More

Quick stop off in Truro, needing lunch and stumbled across this small restaurant What a delight, not pretentious not over bearing, Staff who wanted to please, and an ambience of chillax. From start to finish no rush no hassle, drinks superb especially my favourite Malbec, and my wife enjoyed one of their soft cocktails, thoroughly enjoyed. As for the food... More

Could have ordered all 20 of the different tapas but party of four decided to go for 8 instead. They were all yummy but the macaroni cheese and salted beef was soooo good. Portions were very large for tapa - so I would say only go for two each.

Popped in here for lunch having eaten here before. The food was really lovely but the service felt very slow - not just the food but the drinks too. Not sure I would go back unless I had plenty of time.

I dropped in on a very busy Easter Saturday lunch-time for just a bowl of soup, expecting to have to wait a good while; but I was greeted with a smile by both a busy waitress and the barman, and seated straight away. The waitress cheerfully took my order for soup and bread within a couple of minutes, and within... More

We ate here last year. It was a pretheatre meal, the tapas was excellent, the atmospher was buzzing and it was a fun place to be. Decided to take my daughter this evening, another pretheatre meal, and it felt like a totally different place. The cocktails were amateurish, the food disappointing, grilled goats cheese was deep fried! The batter on... More

Girlfriend and I went there for few drinks and food and ended up ordering a load of tapas. The tapas were very good and the cocktails really tasty. Maybe next time we won't bring the car!
