Been visiting this part of Cornwall in the summer for the last few years and always look forward to going to Sunset Surf - friendly and chilled atmosphere whether tucking into cheesey chips at lunchtime or taking in another glorious sunset with a beer/food in the evening. Our boys really rate the hot chocolate after a bit of surfing!

We have been visiting Sunset Surf for about 7 years and love the place. The food is always tasty and reliable. Have eaten breakfast, snacks, lunch and evening meal and never had a bad experience. Last year we asked the owner if we could host a celebration for 12 of our family one evening, and he and his staff frankly... More

We have come here year after year for so long I can't remember! It's the first place we head to after a long overnight drive down for our annual camping holiday! I had my reservations re the building work but the chocolate was hot, the beer was cold and the staff are great! It's not the cheapest place to go... More

Very nice breakfast at a reasonable price. Table next to us was served burnt toast but problem was sorted out straight away (maybe it shouldn't of left... More

Our holiday in Cornwall wouldn't be the same without our now traditional visit to the Sunset Café for lunch before the long drive home - we just love it! The food is always delicious and well presented. We also like the shop (although we haven't seen it since the refurb). I visited on my own in May, one afternoon towards... More

A lovely cafe which retains a surf-y feel and yet provides high quality evening meals in the evenings in high season. The extremely friendly waiter even took the trouble to phone us back to check that we were still happy with our allotted, outdoor table, as the weather was not looking too promising - we had faith and kept our...

This will be our 4th time down. We call in regularly while staying a few doors up from Sunset Surf. We have always enjoyed our visits and everyone is very friendly. Looking forward to seeing the new make over tomorrow. Keep up the good work guys.

Recently been refurbish from previous years been. Which is a well deserved pat on back. They do all sorts of food and did do for evenings where you to book a table. I think it was 9.30am to 10pm when it was open but suggest check times as not sure if just during summer holiday times. Prices are worth it... More

We've eaten at Sunset Surf all year round for many years. We are locals and visit Sunset Surf to eat Sunday breakfast; birthday meals with family and friends; occasionally drop by for coffee and cake or a beer and chips. We've seen the changes in staff over the years and how the 'crew' have helped and nurtured young people to... More

Sunset Surf cafe has been consistently delightful. My partner and I have been weekly vistors for some 7 years. They create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The food is always excellent. Yes, there has been disruption as the building work enabled them to recover from the winter storm damage. This has NOT impacted on the quality of service or food.... More
