“Two visits, one great, one less good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014 via mobile

The food here is very good, & not at all cheap but overall not bad value given the quality. The fixed menu was great the first time but not so good the second and I regretted having it rather than the a la carte. It is surprising there's so little fish on the fixed price menu.

The wines by the glass are pretty good selection and the atmosphere is buzzy. The location is great with an amazing view over the beach.

As per I have found at other Fifteens, the service is hit and miss. The first time was a surly & somewhat miserable miss (but testament to the food that we went back); the 2nd time was great.

“fantastic views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

We went into the restaurant at noon, but was told they were fully booked, apart from seating at the bar. We were not comfortable with this, so booked the following day. We were told by someone where we were staying that we were lucky, as you usually have to book months in advance. This is a very busy family restaurant and quite noisy.
It was well worth waiting for though. We had a lovely table by the open front windows, overlooking the beach. The quality of the food was delightful and service average, but friendly. We paid more for a meal at Rick Steins, but enjoyed this experience more.

“A taste of luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

With amazing views, beautiful scenery, great service and oh the best food ever, this is certainly somewhere to try. Go for an evening taster menu deal and you won't regret it.

Excellent service and food which was explained in detail and with passion by our server. Rounded off by a fantastic view of the sunset over Watergate Bay.

“great meal, great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

seen it many times while on holiday in Cornwall. we decided to give it a try this time. its was superb. we sate near the kitchen, so could see all are food being freshly prepared, but also have fantastic views across Watergate bay. we had a late lunch booking (2pm), but even so, we were not rushed. the food was delivered promptly by the lovely staff, who were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. the food was excellent, the roast peach's and local salami and cured ham to start were as good as I have had anywhere, the pasta and fish main course's we lovely ( our son thought crispy hake was fantastic, even without any batter on it), and the desserts were great. the none alcoholic cocktails were also brilliant ( i as driving unfortunately). its not the cheapest place to eat, but the views, food, and service were second to none, I cant wait to go back next year. well done, keep it up.
