“One of the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Beautiful lunch and a real bargain price too. 2 courses for £12.50 .....I had risotto and ginger pudding which was fabulous, tasty and well presented. There was plenty to choose from for the same price and the service was great..attentive and speedy but I did not feel rushed. Great harbour views if you ask for a window seat. Would definitely return.

“Mussels & Fish & Chips Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Having had a morning walking round, we dropped into Porthleven looking for lunch.
This is a friendly eaterie, with cheerful staff where we sat outside in the sunshine watching the people and the world go by.
The mussels were reported to be excellent. My fish and chips were first-rate (the batter was particularly light) but the minted peas would have been better with fresh mint.
a good place to stop.

Had the wild mushroom risotto tasted fantastic! Nice, modern airy restaurant with an outside eating area to look across the harbour. Must visit you won't be disappointed

“Great dinner with friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We took friends here for dinner as we couldn't get into our usual favourite restaurant. I needn't have worried though as we all had a great meal from the very reasonably priced fixed price menu. I would especially recommend the pate starter. I am looking forward to going back.

“First visit - Lived up to our expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Having been firm fans of the first restaurant run by the same owners for a number of years, The Victoria inn at Perranuthnoe, we ate in their new restaurant The Square at Porthleven for the first time last night and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. I chose three selections from the menu that were marked with an asterisk, which gave me an lovely three course meal for £21 which was very good value. Other members from our party went for different selections which came out a bit higher in price but did not disappoint. All in all a very good meal in a modern setting. Booking is advisable as this is a very popular restaurant all year round with visitors and locals alike.
