We were looking for a quick bite around Penzance town and Seafood Bar came out first on our google search. Simple delicious food. Lovely staff.

Been a couple of times - good food in an informal setting. Seating is at long tables with stools. Some outside seating, weather permitting. Crab nachos very good, as was the pan fried local fish. Not open in the winter months.

This is truly a hidden gem in Cornwall. Amazing tapas style seafood to make your tastebuds melt. Try the crab nachos or the specials of the day and you won’t be disappointed. But shhhh.... don’t tell anyone it’s here!

My husband and I visited and enjoyed a dinner of great quality fresh seafood. The fish was light and not greasy or ‘fishy’ so you could tell it was fresh and cooked properly. The prices were reasonable and the staff were nice.

There is an outside eating area, so I'd guess no problem - as long as its not raining!
