When there it was warm weather time so we sat in the terrace area, great views, lovely atmosphere, staff friendly, welcoming and professional. Food tasty, fresh and a good large choice on the menu. Reasonably priced for the area too. Between us we had a range of meat and fish dishes, all delicious. We will be back and would recommend.

Fantastic restaurant with amazing food, always spot on and superb value. The 2 courses for £16 is on every evening (I think) and it's fabulous.

Make sure you make a reservation for this wonderful restaurant....been in the UK for 3 weeks and this was, by far, the best meal we have had...located in the harbour area it is well situated for views. Service was efficient and polite - the gnocchi with beets was delightful.

We were agreeably surprised by the level of service and the quality of food. I ordered myself a plaice cooked with prawns in a delightful butter sauce and my wife a fried haddock . A restaurant that Porthleven can be proud of !...

The staff were attentive but not overly so, and very professional. The food was divine. The wine list was excellent and not overpriced. We spent a heavenly... More

Perfect location on a sunny day to take in a view of the harbour and watch the hustle and bustle. We indulged in a cream tea which was delicious and reasonably priced, The scones were large, crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle, so delicious i wish i could have bought some to take home! A good amount... More
