We dined in this bistro on a Sunday evening. I found the dining area rather bland and characterless (but I guess that's just down to personal taste). The staff were polite enough and we were shown to our table and served promptly. The starters were pretty good, but I was not so impressed with the rest of the meal. One of the key ingredients (samphire) in my main course was missing from the dish when it arrived. I queried this with our waiter and, in fairness, he quickly resolved it and I got a portion of said vegetable on the side. For dessert I had ordered ice-cream. One of my choices was peanut butter flavour. When it came, it was obvious there was no peanut butter ice-cream and that pistachio had been substituted; the 'handmade wafer' was also missing. As there were no staff in sight at that point and the ice-cream was melting, we just ate it.
It's a shame because the food and service were reasonably good, although certainly not outstanding, but the issues mentioned above reveal a real lack of care and attention to detail. We were staying in the hotel so it was convenient for us, but I wouldn't make a special trip to eat here again (particularly as there are several restaurants and pubs serving excellent food in nearby Mevagissey). Unfortunately Gwineas Bistro did not provide the special experience we had anticipated.
