First of all this restaurant does not accept credit cards,cash or cheque only but do not let that put you off because they serve very good meals and the staff are very sociable and if you do need cash there is a cash machine across the road at the Co-op.This restaurant serves Italian food and a variety of british food...

Myself and my husband went there for our anniversary meal and we were very very happy with this meal. For me the Cornish fish cakes with crab alioli was absolutely beautiful I could have eaten it 10 times over. For my husband it would have to be the red pesto wrapped chicken that made him so happy. He said it... More

Me and my boyfriend have visited Terra Nova twice in the last few months on holidays in Cornwall. We just had to go back a second time! The food was fabulous and very reasonable, the front of house service was friendly and attentive and even the chef came to check how we found our meal. We shared an anti-pasta starter... More

We made a very last minute booking and were offered a table at 8.45 which was perfect for us. When we arrived the reataurant looked busy which we took as a great sign as there was a lively atmosphere. We shared a starter then went onto main and a dessert. All were amazingly cooked, delicious, hot and fresh. We ended... More

Took my family and my boyfriend to this restaurant and we were not impressed. My mother tripped down a step that was not clearly marked, then around 15 minutes later my step father also fell down, this time onto his knees. The waiter was not overly concerned for my step father after the fall and when we said about the... More

Thank goodness for Terra Nova! We discovered that the pub we were staying in couldn't do anything but sandwiches or burgers, and most of Lostwithiel was closed? We had two great meals with excellent service, they were so helpful and even let me swap the potatoes for a different kind after I had ordered them.

Our first visit to this restaurant and it won't be our last! The service and the food were excellent. The choices on the menu were varied and they have an ideal children's menu. The meatballs were terrific as was the rest of the meal! Keep up the good work!

Very tasty, I had a good salad which is something hard to find. For a lunchtime it was busy. Only down side was the decor looking tired, in need of a good spring clean and decorate.

Four of us went to Terra Nova to eat on Saturday 16th August. We had read some decent reviews and the Menu looked varied and quite interesting. The appetizers (including spicy prawns, risotto balls and calamari) were all excellent and a very decent size. The main courses were even more substantial and the quality was quite unexpectedly good. I had... More
