Fantastic food

Lovely atmosphere, great food, great service. A proper little gem in a beautiful setting. A very minor point: gets really hot and a bit stuffy, even in cooler weather, but doesn't spoil the experience.

Once again we ate in this fantastic restaurant, it's an annual event for my wife's birthday- this time however I was bowled over! We booked on a Sunday night, in winter and as it turned out we were the only diners. Far from cancelling our booking the restaurant had two chefs and a fab waitress waiting for us! Felt like...

We stayed in Mousehole for a few days and visited 2 Fore Street on our first night. It was so lovely we booked for my Birthday. Great position overlooking the harbour with relaxed decor. Simple beautifully cooked fresh food. Hubby had a delightful chilli fish stew which he said was superb, I had lemon sole with lemon butter - divine.... More

What a lovely friendly top quality cafe/restaurant. Although the whole village of Mousehole was really busy over the new year and the constant rain we managed to get a table in this delightful eatery. The food was fresh and cooked wonderful. The staff seemed under pressure but were quite helpful. One negative as we left none of the staff said... More

Excellent food but evening spoilt by waiter continually leaving service door open. This despite having been asked to close it. Result was cold draughts. Would have given 5 stars otherwise.

I'm in two minds about writing a review on this fabulous restaurant because it might get even more popular. New Years Day dinner was a great joy - 5 of us shared starters and mains so the treats were enjoyed by everyone. Highly recommended for the great food and perfect service.

Great location on the harbour. Cosy restaurant serving good quality food. We had scallops to start. I had surf and turf, my wife had a fish stew, our 16 year old had crab cake and stoned bass and our 12 year old had chicken and chips from the childrens menu

Had a really wonderful meal here on New Year's Eve. Sits right next to the lights so super easy to find after a walk around the town. They had a special NYE menu, so I was pleasantly surprised as I wasn't too sure from looking at their online menu. The food was so incredibly good. Seafood was so fresh! Had... More

Fabulous food and great service. Mussels for me, gnocchi for hubby, both delicious. Mains, sea bass with crab cake and monkfish curry, sublime. Desserts, raspberry and hazelnut parfait and baked cheesecake......unbeatable. Great ambience, great service......would recommend unreservedly.

There is a good reason for this being the number one restaurant in Mousehole. The great food and fine service. For those who like to eat their food in a clean environment you will be pleased to hear that this restaurant does not allow dogs in the restaurant which is often the case in other restaurants in Cornwall. We had... More
