Tried for two years to eat here, never open. Beautiful setting and had been recommended but to no avail?

This is very popular so you will always need to book ahead. Food very good indeed. We are here twice . The whitebait was superb as was the lobster, hake and pizzas. Also an interesting cocktail menu.

So didn't actually get to experience Spero's. I wish they had made this clearer on their web site so I'm adding this review. I also noticed the restaurant was advertised for sale in the estate agents window which was rather ominous. Maybe next time!

Spero's is worth a visit. The location was wonderful - right on the beach. We visited this restaurant twice. The pizzas were tasty - crisy and fresh. The coffee was wonderful and the staff were very friendly.

This cafe has a great location, with a pretty deck looking out over Porthmellon Beach. The coffee was very good, and although we didn't actually eat here the food looked and smelt very good too.

We were lucky enough to get a table when we walked in - booking is recommended and I can see why. We had pizzas which were delicious, and the staff were very friendly.
