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.

Three of us went for an evening meal during October. Having previously had a nice lunch here we were looking forward to it for a special occasion. The starters were excellent. 2 of us had the pate & 1 had grilled sardines. We all 3 ordered steak for our main course. One well done, one medium & one rare. The... More

We have eaten here a number of times and each time we end up too full. I know it is a bit of a funny complaint as the taste of the food is great individually but when it all comes together my partner and I found the combinations far to rich. I think less is more could be employed here... More

We had a wonderful meal for 14 of us with veggies and gluten free diets on board! All the food came out at once steaming hot and absolutely delicious! Favourites were the duck with lentils, pollack with mussels and the hake with chorizo and butterbeans and kale. Desserts were amazing and service great! Definitely a must if around the Porthleven...

This is an easy pick menu restaurant with no fancy names or confusing words. The food was excellent and very tasty. It is very informal and can get very busy with long waiting times. The meat is always lean and fresh as is all their dishes. Very happy and will return

This is an lovely little restaurant. Service and food are both good, and a decent pint of draught ale at a fair price. The Square make a big thing about their "real chips". Very commendable, but they don't cook them enough. I told them so let's see if they take notice of what their customers say. Recommended.

Just felt I had to post something on here as I know how important TA can be to businesses. We ate on Saturday night for the first time and thought the whole dinning experience was excellent. The potted crab was fabulous as was the steak. The service was efficient and friendly. We will definitely be back for sure. Please if... More
