My friends and I spend the morning surfing on the beach near sunset surf cafe and we had a great time. We hired the surfing boards from sunset surf. We paid 10£ for a foam board for 2 hours, you can also hire wetsuits and body boards. They were quite flexible with the time allowing us to be half... read more

We ate at this cafe a few times while staying in Hayle. Very good quality food, great friendly staff and beautiful setting. Both breakfast and dinner were excellent. Steak cooked perfectly. Recommend this cafe even if just going in for a cappuccino. Relaxed, family friendly atmosphere in a family run business and beautiful sunset views

The staff are really nice and attentive, the location is great with an amazing view, the atmosphere is relaxed but the food, for what it is, was over over priced.

It's all about the view here and so they don't have to try to hard with the food to attract a crowd. Their best offerings are burgers and fish and chips. they do a more sophisticated menu in the evening but this was disappointing compared with the simple daytime fayre. Great spot for a sunset though 🌅

Had dinner here the other night and what a fabulous place! The view of the sun going down is second to none - we could have been anywhere in the world! Good food, tasty and well cooked though perhaps a little overpriced. We didn't mind too much though as the service was impeccable, the owners lovely. Probably would pay just... More

A fantastic location and a stylish beach cafe. My wife is very fussy about her coffee and she thought that it was excellent. I agreed. We all thought our cakes were good too. If we had time, we would definitely come back as the menu looked tasty!

Cafe by day but quality restaurant by night. Enjoyed a lovely evening meal on the terrace with great sea view and sunset. Food was very good and staff friendly and attentive. They reserved two tables for us -one inside in case the weather turned and out which we were able to use. Reasonable prices for food and drink. We hope... More

Great spot overlooking the beach with decked area and attached surf shop. Food OK but the attraction is the view.
