Lovely relaxed evening

Reserved a table for 9 and had excellent service from the start. Great food & massive portions, possibly too big, but all very tasty. The rib special was lovely and the burger was great, but would have been better with coleslaw on the side for the kids. Potted crab was very nice, unusually spicy... read more

We planned to frequent this beach side café / bistro a lot during our week long stay at Mawgan Porth as it was a short walk for us across the beach from where we were staying and looked great. As it was we used it a couple of times but found ourselves eating at the pub, travelling further afield or... More

Spent a pleasant evening here..party of 7, although they'd forgotten 3 of us, but this was quickly remedied. Fab atmosphere, chilled and relaxed. Aussie/NZ (soz couldn't decide) was awesome. Waitress was a little bit off, however v efficient. Food was good, chorizo n squid startes were AWESOME. Kids pasta was a bit sad, needs some work. In general a good... More

We booked a table for dinner ordering the mussels, the mackerel and the crab pot and salad. The seafood was so fresh and cooked perfectly. The staff were cheery friendly and extremely attentive. They gave excellent personalised service. It was the best meal we had on our whole holiday this year. Thank you!!

We always eat in Off the Beach when we are in Mawgan Porth, we ate in it when it was called Fire also. Whilst the food is delicious the menu this year was sadly lacking with a very limited choice. The service was extremely slow. We don't mind a laid back approach, we're on holiday after all, but when it... More

Popped in for dinner early evening, not many customers but seemed to be lots of reservations. Ordered tapas and pizzas, all the food was really good but there was a bit of chaos around us when a couple sat at the wrong table and another party brought an extra person! Would definitely go back when all said and done.

Enjoyed a family lunch outdoors one Sunday afternoon whilst on holiday. The salad was delicious, the atmosphere was relaxed and we enjoyed the band whilst eating. My husband raved about the pizza he had and my 6 year ate all of her fish and chips. Highly recommended.

Definitely our favourite place to eat in Mawgan Porth. Very friendly service, great food. Kids had pizza which was really good. OH had the special ribs and I had a burger. Cheesecake of the day also very good. Highly recommend, definitely advisable to book for dinner in the peak season.

Great food far better than the merrymoor next door. The lady manager just needs to cheer up, clearly she is a bit moody. Else good all round
