My colleague and I thought we would try this restaurant and we were glad we did. I normally go for a fillet steak but as they only served Rib Eye I gave that a go and it was beautiful, a really tasty meal washed down with a bottle of Australian Sauvingnon Blanc. Lovely meal and surprisingly busy for a wet... More

Our companions had had Fowey mussels earlier as a main course but after a turn of year menu revision these were now offered a a starter portion. After a simple request two of us had a full and very tasty main sized portion.... More

There was a good choice of dishes and plenty of extra treats. After dinner we saw in the New Year watching the fireworks over the harbour and waves crashing in from the... More

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
