Surprisingly quiet this afternoon despite the number of people in town we were lucky enough to get a lovely table here. The kids were very impressed with their fish/mac 'n' cheese, I had blackened cod burger and the hubby had fish tacos. All of which were delicious and even said the tacos were as good as any in California that... More

We ate here during our week in Mevagissey. Had to book as the place was heaving and the place is run at a frenetic pace to cope although I'm sure this will slow down off season. Superb location on the harbour and lots of families with children and dogs. We enjoyed our meals of Tacos, Jambalaya and Prawns. Would recommend... More

I loved the location of this restaurant and the stylish interior decor. It was great to be able to take our dog inside. I thought the menu was quite basic and my husband who loves fish was not impressed with his meal at all. The atmosphere was great and the waitresses provided a good service.

We've eaten here many times over the past 30 years however last night's meal was the best we'd had here. I had the cornish sole with caper butter, salad and fries from the specials board and hubby had the pulled beef burger - he declared it better than the one he'd had at Rojanos in Padstow! My sole was perfectly... More

Only went in for a drink to take in the gorgeous view on the harbour through the open front! Really lovely and attentive staff and the salted caramel brownie was absolutely perfect!!!

We went early, without booking, and were lucky to get a table. By 7pm they were turning people away. The hostess who was doing front of house was extremely good at her job and kept everybody happy - even those who couldn't get in! The food was delicious - I had the Root Vegetable salad, with added fresh crab, which... More

My husband and I ate here for dinner one evening whilst camping down in the area. We were shown to a table as soon as we'd arrived and all staff were pleasant and welcoming. Orders were quickly taken and the wait for food wasn't too long at all - food was tasty and reasonably priced, although my husband thought it... More

My husband, my 6 year old and I went for an afternoon meal to this lovely place. It's situated right across the road from the harbour, and makes for a fantastic experience. We got seats along the open glass doors, which was refreshing, as it was a particularly hot day. We ordered dishes than included crab linguine, aubergine chips and... More

My family and I had just arrived and settled into our holiday rental (Blue Harbour) with fantastic views of harbour life, so we were already very happy! Every year it was a tradition to get pasty and chips on the first night but this time the Sharksfin was our choice... We were greeted by a very friendly waitress and seated... More
