No visit to the Lizard Peninsular is complete without eating here once.

Stopped off here for lunch and sat out on the patio and just enjoyed watching basking sharks, seals, and Cornish Choughs, and Fulmars. Oh and the food was first class as always. Sandwiches were perfect and service with a smile.

Absolute perfection! We have been here many times and sampled many of the delicious choices on the menu. Our absolute favourite are the fish medley and jubilee meringue. Fabulous food and always service with a smile, whilst drinking in one of the best views on earth. We hope to continue our visits for many years to come!! Thank you x

I've been a regular visitor for a few years, but took my mum & uncle John last Thursday for their 1st ever visit - jubilee meringues all round... friendly staff, fresh and original menu, good solid choice with something for everyone - I cannot recommend this place highly enough - the setting is stunning, and is only enhanced by the...

This is my favourite cafe ever. You would be hard pressed to beat the view anywhere in the world. Recommend the fish pie which is lovely. If you have room go for the chocolate fudge cake, jubilee meringue or massive homemade doughnuts. And wash down with a milkshake or hot chocolate. Very reasonable prices and lovely staff

Visited Lizard point and just had to eat here for the view! Service was friendly. Food a tad pricey but worth it. The fish pie was fresh and sooooooo tasty!! They accept card payment which is great.

During our visit to Lizard Point, we popped in here for a snack and coffee. What a lovely cafe and great, friendly waitress service. The views are amazing and the menu varied and comprehensive. Credit is due as the range of food available caters for all tastes given the remote location. I would definitely come back as I plan to... More

Cafe on Lizard point with great views. Visited on Easter Sunday - was very busy - but cafe coped well and got food out fairly quickly. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Outside tables are hard to beat - sat eating whilst trying to spot the seals. Good choice of fresh fish and lots of other options. I had the... More

i always look forward to my annual trip to Cornwall as I make sure I visit the polpeor cafe for their cream teas. The scones are served warm and are light and fluffy. They are accompanied by Cornish cream and organic jam. Together with the spectacular views this has to be the perfect cream tea in the uk
