Simply delicious

Been there with family for lunch. Initially I was thinking to get just a sandwich, but I saw some wonderful fried cod going between the tables and I've ordered one. Got it in 15-20 minutes with very good chips too. It tasted very fresh, and also fried just on order and not re-heated. Also the fish... read more

We stopped here for drinks & cake just after Xmas, we received a warm welcome and the coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, mulled wine & cakes consumed were delicious. It is so nice to find somewhere that allows dogs after a walk on the beach & you wouldn't have known that 3 dogs were with our group. The cafe was... More

Very sorry to read this review, however unfortunately over the Christmas period our usual supplier ran out of stock and if it was the day which I think it was we were selling a thinner "French fry" style chips as opposed to our usual think cut chip, which are a very good product ( see 2 reviews below, that review...

A trip to this beachside café is always a highlight of my stay in Portreath. Time to enjoy a delicious coffee, some tasty food and a catch up with friendly faces. And this visit didn't disappoint. The place was packed every time I went in, with a fabulous Christmassy atmosphere. The log burner is a great addition. Really welcoming and... More

Have visited Atlantic every few months since new ownership and it just gets better and better! Wood burner is a great addition to the cosy end of the bar. Staff friendly and efficient. Food just what we needed after long journey. We will be back (again!)

Wanting to get some fresh air over holiday period we went to the beach at Portreath. After sunshine and showers (what else in Cornwall) we popped in for a warm drink. Had to have a cream tea;-) Friendly staff, snacks were good, food being served to others looked good and the prices very reasonable.
