The food at this restaurant was superb. My partner and I just had a main course. I had the seafood risotto which was delicious and my partner had the lasagne which he declared to be the best lasagne he had ever eaten! The only criticism we had was that the restaurant was cold!

We were visiting second hand bookshops here midweek over the Xmas break and went looking for somewhere to have lunch thinking of a pub but chanced on Terra Nova instead. The menu looked interesting so in we went. This is a small bistro that looks bigger than it is at first sight due to the mirrored walls. It is a... More

Dropped in here by chance and just made it in time for breakfast. An excellent full English breakfast at a good price. Would definitely recommend it! Coffee was lovely also! A very relaxed atmosphere. Will call in again!

I have been to this restaurant several times and have always had top notch food with lovely attentive service. Went last week with a "foodie" friend, was very nervous as she is, by her own admission, a perfectionist and fussy eater. She was blown away by her main and raved about her sweet, the chocolate brownie, to the extent the... More

Returning from a funeral in Saltash I decided to stop for lunch in Lostwithiel. I checked the main street and the most appealing place appeared to be the Terra Nova Restaurant. On a December day it was not full and I was quickly shown to a table. The service was prompt and polite. I chose the Hamburger. It was a... More

We have family in the area that we travel down to visit in the school holidays and we’ve been to Terra Nova a few times now, most recently at half term and I thought it was time I left a review. I haven’t had a bad meal yet and the portion sizes are really generous, especially considering how good value... More

Food was very average and the service was terrible. They couldn't seem to accommodate a combination from the menu or have any initiative. Also lack of drink options, no rum for example.

I ate here recently having not been for several years. The food was superb, I thoroughly recommend the chips, prawns and the steak was also very nice (although it would be better if asked how well I would have liked it cooked). The only thing that let the experience down was the fact that the restaurant seemed to be used... More

We were the other party who arrived at the same time as John B and we did consider leaving with them. We were glad we didn't. The welcome on arrival and first few minutes are best described as a "Glass Half empty" approach. We chose the restaurant from Trip advisor and Trip advisor could help here by making information about... More
