Visited midweek with my wife and ordered the bigger tasting menu available. All the food that came out was pretty, and many of the courses backed that up, particularly the cod and lamb dishes. The speed of service was all over the place as they...More

Not many restaurants in Cornwall have a Michelin Star but this one is richly deserved. We had dinner on two successive evenings; the first meal was excellent and the second even better. Inventive presentations, which did not get in the way of the quality of...More

Every dish is prepared with care and pride, using high quality and fresh local produce. Unpretentious service. Just a joy to eat there every morning and two of the evenings during our stay.

Their Michelin star is well deserved. The food is innovative and delicious. Carefully chosen wine list compliments the food. Service was helpful, cheerful and friendly. Well worth a visit.

Where should one begin? Ate here with my Wife on a Tuesday evening, we were not hotel residents. Located on the undulating coastline, this restaurant is a peaceful hideaway. Decor is neutral with a quirky nautical theme. We first took drinks in the bar. We...More

Description
We could go on, but let's leave that to the Guide Books. Come and experience Driftwood's Michelin Starred Restaurant for yourself. There are no extravagant promises, only a guarantee of the freshest, finest food, served with stunning views across the sea. When the weather is warm we light hurricane lamps on the deck to enjoy pre-dinner drinks and after dinner coffee.
