Description: We're an informal cafe and bar by day; then as the sun sets, the tea lights are lit, creating a relaxed and intimate atmosphere. Perched on the harbourside in the picturesque village of Porthleven, our glass fronted doors lead onto a terrace with panoramic views over the harbour and its fishing boats. We delicately prepare our beautiful food to order and serve it with a variety of carefully selected wines in a stunning surrounding.

Excellent restaurant in Porthleven - one of the few with more than one vegetarian option! Food is freshly cooked to order so there can be a wait but the wait is worth it. It's delicious and very filling! Staff were very accommodating and friendly. Also nice to be able to bring well-behaved dog with us for our evening meal. Some... More

We arrived to find a busy, bustling yet relaxed atmosphere. The menu was varied with some good veggie choices and non fish based options (which we were happy about!) with plenty of fishy choices too for those who might like it, all local. We'd phoned in advance to see if they allowed dogs and were pleased to be told that... More

Went with another family so 8 of us in total and we all had a lovely meal. All had different things and all meals were well cooked and nicely presented.

We initially tried to get in on a Monday evening at 7.00pm. but the restaurant was exceptionally full and we could not have a table until 9.00pm. which was too late for our Grandsons. As this restaurant was the only one we could find serving mussels and our youngest Grandson loves mussels we decided to book for the following Wednesday... More

We stopped here last week with our two young boys for lunch whilst spending a few hours in Portleven. What struck me was the lively decor inside and the menu looked scrummy. So we got seated at a table at the back (which we asked for) and spent 15 minutes before someone came to take a drinks order. The children... More

On arrival we had wait sometime before we were noticed, not a good start. We were offered bread and olives as we were seated, which we accepted, no mention that it was chargeable, beware customers on a set budget! Prosecco arrived cool but not cold enough. Food was average and not made better by poor service.

We visited Amélies back in 2012 and decided more or less instantly that this was the venue for us to host our special day. The restaurant is stylish yet unpretentious with stunning views over Porthleven harbour. Organising your wedding in a Cornish fishing village nearly 300 miles away from where we live could have presented heaps of problems. Owner Sam... More

I have eaten many times at this restaurant but without a doubt it has gone downhill since it changed it's name. We went for the Porthleven food festival in April, managed to get a table, waited over 30 minutes to be brought a menu and then when it got to over an hour and still no one had taken our... More
