This place is a saviour for evening meals in Porthtowan as there are not many options - the atmosphere is chaotic, but the staff seem to have their own plan of organisation and the food is good. As were staying for a week we would have liked to have eaten there more often than we did ( 3 nights) but... More

It really is a stunning location! But the food is also fantastic and reasonably priced! The only reason it isn't getting 5* is because the 3 times we've visited the staff have been very indifferent to the point of being almost rude. But in my opinion the quality of the food, value for money and location more than make up... More

Had a lovely vege meal (not that I'm a vege), but the ingredients sounded delicious and I wasn't disappointed - best vege meal I have ever had! Great view from the bar too - right on the beach. Can get really busy at times and not enough seating, but that is due to the popularity of the bar. Daughter enjoys... More

Visited here with a friend for early tea, good idea as very busy by 6.30 pm. Lots of outside seating. Moved inside to a bay window seat to eat, 4 of these window seats, always a struggle to get one, but views are well worth it if you can. Service very good, food came quickly. Had a vegetarian burger (homemade)... More

This was our third year in Porthtowan. We like to get a week in before and or after the schools break up. There has been a definite shift in standards at Blue Bar. The "rustic med" menu has little choice and during our week there were always at least one choice unavailable. With a notified 40 min wait we chose... More

It is our 1st visit to Mt. Hawke and this bar was our dinner stop on arrival. While most other restaurants close their kitchen at 8:00 pm, the blue bar's kitchen is open till 12:00 midnite, so it suits late diners such as ourselves. Being summer, it was still bright at 8:00 pm so we could enjoy the fantastic view... More

Been here many times and have never been disappointed however tonight the food was below their usual standard. The burgers arrived just Luke warm and initially came out with the starter, we were offered fresh burgers and we accepted this offer. Disappointed as this is not their usual standard

This was out first visit to the Blue Bar and we were really impressed. The location is fantastic, right beside the sandy beach, with pared-back décor and an atmosphere that can best be described as "chilled". We were very pleasantly surprised by the food, which was far from traditional café fare, but an exotic mix of Asian-influenced dishes, sharing platters,... More
