Description: The Beach View Restaurant enjoys an excellent reputation as one of the finest restaurants in Newquay, with a laid back dining experience offering simple yet delicious cuisine. Local suppliers, a relaxed atmosphere and stylish decor all help make this one of the best places to eat in Cornwall, but the main coup is the food itself.Fresh seasonal ingredients and an imaginative team of chefs, combined with our focus on simple classic flavours, means that we serve everything from gourmet burgers and succulent steaks to the best of the bay; fresh fish, mussels soaked in garlic butter with crusty French bread on the side and hand cut chips: simple, relaxed, delicious. Open to non-residents and hotel guests, our restaurant in Newquay is about spending time together, with great food and superb wine; food without the formality.

“Beautiful view, beautiful food, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

My fiance and I dined here during our weekend stay at the Fistral beach hotel and we will definitely be coming back!
We went there for breakfast both mornings and for dinner on Saturday night (22.02.14) and were not dissapointed once. The full Englsih breakfasts we had were lovely, well presented and not at all greasy. We were also able to help ourselves to toast, jams, honey etc, croissants, pastries, fruit juice and tea/ coffee. Everything was laid out nicely and the cooked breakfast came out really quickly as well.
As for dinner, we both really enjoyed our meals, the portion sizes were great (I can eat a lot), again presentation perfect and despite the fact that they were quite busy, we wern't waiting too long for our food at all! Also, a bonus was that while we were waiting they served us with some fresh focacia bread which was really nice and without asking were given a jug of water for the table.
I think the main thing that we came away with though was how well we were treated by the staff. Primarily we were served by Matthew and Sophie who were both really accomadating. They seemed to be working the entire time we were there and must have been tired because they never seemed to stop for a second but despite this they were still so friendly and would do absolutley anything they could to make sure we were OK and enjoying our food.
On another note, the restaurant looks out onto a lovely view of fistral beach and there's just something really nice about sitting there in the morning and having some breakfast with that to look at.
Anyway, we really would recommend it because it's just lovely, and we will most definitely be going back sometime in the summer :)

“Valentine Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the hotel on valentines weekend & went to the restaurant for our evening meal. The restaurant is bright clean & modern & the staff are all friendly & introduced to you by the restaurant manager Matthew. Nothing is too much trouble & the food is fantastic. You are allowed to enjoy your meal at your pace.

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

The manager & waitresses could not do enough to make this a lovely restaurant to dine in . A wide ranging varied menu will cover most peoples tastes and the food we were served on our 2 night weekend break was of a very high standard which was presented very professionally .The Manager told us how they like to support local suppliers and you could tell that from the taste and quality of the food that this was the case. The breakfasts on offer were also superb and set us up for the day . All in all a great dining experience People , Food, atmosphere, and Surroundings all of the highest standard we will be back.

“Great service and food !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

We went there for Valentine day dinner.
I have never had this good service from anywhere in Newquay.
Restaurant manager was so tentative so as staff yet very friendly.
Ciabatta bread which was offered as service was very nice.
Had a calamari for starter which was very light and nice and 10 oz Ribeye steak for main.
It was perfectly cooked as medium to melt fat but quite a big portion so I could not finish it.
But they wrap the rest of meat for me to bring home (steak sandwich for next day!)

All you want from good restaurant is here!
