“Amazing Surf 'n Turf !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

We have visited Polzeath every year for a week at this time for the last 5 years but this is the first time we have been to Surfside. The food was so good we visited twice in the week. Both times the food and service were outstanding. The chips, the lobster and the steak are all to die for. A good selection of wine and beer along with a stunning view. The price wasn't cheap but then you get what you pay for. The only downside was the loos weren't working and we had to pop across the beach to use the facilities - no dramas. We'll definately be back - see you same time next year :-)

“Made my summer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

Spent most of my evenings in this amazing place. Location is second to none, as is the food and staff. Everyone was polite and fast. Food was perfectly cooked (I recommend the steak baguette)
I look forward to spending next summer here too :)

“What a Cracker!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

Just enjoyed a pleasant meal at Surfside. We watched the weather change several times out in Hayle Bay. What a location! My 13 year old son demolished the lobster, served by friendly and helpful staff. I had a rump steak which could have done with being served after the lobster as it was a touch on the cold side. All in all, a good restaurant, simple but good quality food and friendly staff.

“Excellent location and great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

Had dinner here on a beautiful, warm summer evening after day on Polzeath Beach. The restaurant was very hot and service a bit mixed. However the views of the bay and the food (lobster and fillet steak) were excellent. Limited choice for kids made the meal rather expensive but it was one of those special Cornish summer evenings that none of us will ever forget.

“Amazing location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

Came here for chips and drinks with family. Amazing view of the beach and location is perfect sitting outside or in. Chips were delicious and reasonably priced. Great service from the staff who were very friendly and helpful. Will be coming here again!
