Perfect

I have visited a few times and it has always been good but yesterdays lunch was so lovely! I have truly never tasted seafood curry like it. The pickle and flatbread were a perfect accompaniment too. Having The Square and Seadrift in beautiful Porthleven - whats the point of eating anywhere else!

This was our first visit for a meal after several local recommendations. Had visited for coffee in summer so knew it was very pleasant surroundings. It was very quiet with only four tables occupied but the service was excellent and the food very good. Plenty of choice with both food and wine. Parking is easy with on road parking round... More

Total bill £75 for the four inc three teas. The food is excellently prepared and presented . The menu is varied, from Goan fish curry to confit duck and... More

We met up with friends here for lunch. It was exceptionally busy because Thursday is "special offer for over 60s" day. We could only obtain a table for 6 at 1.45 pm but that didn't matter... the whole place was full of over 60s all having a wonderful time. 3 of us ate from the over 60 menu at £6.95... More

Had lunch here on a rare sunny January day. We booked ahead as the set lunch looked good on their sample menu on the website, however we were very disappointed at the choice of mains available for the set lunch. It seemed like there were 2 vegetarian options and the mussels. On enquiring we were informed that the cassoulet was... More

Four of us had an excellent meal hear on a very wet and windy Monday evening in January 2016. We needed to book which was surprising - Porthleven had almost closed after the Christmas and New Year visitors had gone. We had an extra couple of days to sober up before the journey home!! A varied fresh menu with plenty... More
