Description: We are a small family run Tapas Bar facing the beach in Porth Nr Newquay. Sorry we do not allow children under 14 as we are a fully licensed public bar, adults haven, adults have to have somewhere to go without children. You can sit & enjoy a glass or bottle (from £14 per bottle) of Spanish wine/ sangria (£8 per half litre or £15 per litre)or beer in our relaxing bar or out looking over the beach or if you feel a bit hungry why not try some our our tapas. All our tapas dishes are cooked fresh to order (if hot) & are from authentic Spanish recipes. Dishes cost from £3 (olives) to £6.75 (scallops & morcia) We say for a snack 1-2 dishes or substanial meal average of 5 dishes per couple if you want a full meal

“Amazing!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Amazing Tapas as usual. We took our Nephew this time, and were not sure if he would like Tapas or not, but even though we ordered 8 items to share between 3 of us, we were having to fight him for the food as he loved it aswell. Scrumptious scallops, brilliant Potatas Bravas, mouth watering meatballs and chorizo with butter beans was recommended and was gorgeous aswell. I always get my hubby to ask if it is poss to have the choc mousse cake on the dessert menu when he phones up to book, but he forgot, so we had to have the brownie instead, which was amazing, but very filling. I keep asking for the choc mousse cake recipe, but they won't give me it. BOOH!

We went here last night based on trip advisor and were staying in Porth. Shared 4 Tapas all were delicious and a nice house wine. We will be going back next time we are in the area.

“A real find”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We stayed near the restaurant so were lucky enough to be able to walk to it. It's a real gem in a wonderful location just by a beach. Food was great, plentiful and great value. The owner was friendly and helpful. If you like tapas you'll love this and I just wish I had a restaurant like this at home. Best place we ate on holiday.

“First time visit and very impressed by food, service and atmosphere.”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We called in on the off chance last night to this wonderful little restaurant. We had a warm welcome by the owner and the service was excellent along with the pil pil starter and fresh warm bread followed by 4 awesome dishes and a desert (ameretto ice cream sundae with added clotted cream) a small and med glass of wine all for less than £38. Excellent value. It is nice to have somewhere to go which serves good food at reasonable prices. Give it a try.
THANK YOU for a lovely evening.

“Absolutely amazing, great value and lovely surroundings. A must for Porth”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Tonight we have been to this restaurant and thiught it would end our holiday nicely and we werent disappointed. Possibly THE best meal we have had in a long long time. The owner was welcoming and relaxed. We enjoyed warmed breads, tzatziki and fresh houmous on the terrace with sangria followed by an array of delicious meals inside the restaurant area. It was all freshly made and tasted native to a spanish dish. It was also great value for money, only costing us £25 each which was 12 different dishes, 2 jugs sangria, a brandy and 2 disarrono's and coke so id say great value and a definite treat.
We ended with a beautiful home made brownie with clotted cream which was intensely delicious.
Thoroughly recommend this restaurant and would most definately return when we come back to Newquay. The setting is amazing over looking the beach watching the beautiful sun setting. What a treat tonight has been and a fantastic end to our fandabbydozey couples retreat away.
