“Great lunches !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Recently had lunch here and it was really good. If was also reasonably priced. The service was excellent. Often visit on a Sunday morning for coffee; the opening times can be erratic but I am assured that this has been sorted.

“A great place to enjoy fine food Mousehole”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Our favourite restaurant in a lovely location overlooking Mousehole’s harbour and near the harbour beach or rock pools. Serving fresh Cornish seafood (and meat dishes), a very friendly and popular modern restaurant. With small garden out the back for a chilled out lunch in the sun.

“Valentine's day lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

A friend and I had walked from Penzance to Mousehole and were in search of a light lunch. To be honest, I think we'd forgotten by lunchtime that it was Valentine's day so were somewhat surprised that the restaurant was quite full of couples. However there were 3 tables for two vacant so we were lucky. Even though I am fairly local I had not visited this restaurant before, though I had heard good things about it.

We ordered a glass of house Chardonnay each and it had a surprising depth of flavour with a rich satisfying after taste, not at all flabby or over oaked as some house chardonnays can be. We were given a lunch menu and pointed to the specials on the blackboard. We both chose the Smoked Haddock Croquettes @ £7.50 from the specials board. These came with a small rocket salad and were absolutely delicious, with a rich creamy centre and crispy outside. My only criticism was that they were not very filling, but then again they were supposed to be a starter. Had we have realised how light they were we might have ordered a side of fries or perhaps some of the delicious looking bread we could see being served. We then had a very nice Cappucino each to round off the meal.

The atmosphere was great, luckily it was a beautiful sunny day and my friend really appreciated sitting with a view of Mousehole harbour in the sun. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Decor is light, bright and airy. I think in the evenings, or for a longer lunch this could be a "special occasion" place for my husband and I.

Would definitely recommend to people and will very definitely visit again.

“Always excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We had an evening meal here back in October for our wedding anniversary, we had eaten here before so didn't hesitate to go back again. The meal, service and atmosphere were all great. We will definitely be back!

“Great weekend brunch menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Whilst enjoying my seventh Christmas break in Mousehole, I noted the brunch menu at this restaurant.

It was a fantastic experience, despite the worries of potential flooding, to sit with a harbour view whilst enjoying some delicious food. For once, there was something for everyone in my family to enjoy. The spinach omelette was exquisite, the sausage barm a meal in itself and, the sharpest critic of all, six-year old John, enjoyed a toast and jam feast, consisting of a plateful of tasty and crisp fingers (which Mum helped him out with,) liberally buttered with the best of everything. Furthermore, the drinks were wonderfully presented, a full-bodied mocha and, as always, thank God for a good tea pot, not a tatty paper cup with teabag.

The bill was very reasonable, many thanks to all concerned.
