We really enjoyed the food here. Great tastes, and efficient service. Food presentation was good too. Something's stopping me from awarding 5 stars (not sure what, but it didn't feel amazing enough for 5) but I would definitely eat here again :-)

Visited with friends and all agreed that the food was to die for. We often eat out and enjoy finding exciting tasty discoveries. Have dined here on two occasions now, once in the summer for lunch and last week for supper. We all agreed that the presentation and quality of the produce was exceptional, as too was the execution of... More

two course for £6.75 and 3 for £8 75 ...only on a thursday and I think I will be a regular. Why bother to cook? Better to share a leisurely lunch with good friends. A restricted menu produced at the same high standard as the regular menue. Great presentation and pleasant atmosphere.

Having visited on many occasions we have always been very pleased with our snacks, lunches, dinners and service. On our latest visit, which was for lunch, we were very pleased, as always. The food was freshly cooked, tasty and well presented. Located on the corner opposite the harbour, the window seats can be interesting for people watching. There is also... More

Having visited this restaurant last year on our annual family trip to Cornwall, we were all excited to return and eagerly hoping it was as good as we all remembered. It was! We ended up eating here three times during our week stay and didn't have a bad dish once. Consistently tasty food, especially the Goan fish curry, duck leg,... More

I had the Goan fish curry which was lovely. The location of the restaurant was ideal & it was tastefully decorated. Service was good & friendly which created a nice atmosphere. A little bit pricey but not enough to put me off.

Every time we visit we really enjoy the place. Great spot to sit on terrace for drinks and watch the world go by. Friendly staff, lovely tasty food, reasonably priced with good quality fresh ingredients and a great choice to select. Either inside or outside if the weather is good, we would recommend to all.

This was our first visit to this restaurant, however as locals we will definitely make it a regular choice in the future. The food was excellent, reasonably priced and the service good.
