“Best quality meat & seafood! Without a doubt!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

We stayed in Newquay for three nights and ate at Butchers Bistro for two of them, well happy with both meals! They are on the main coast road I think and advertise themselves as a Steak & Seafood resturaunt and they do exactly what they say on the tin but OMG they do it sooooooo well. I believe they provide meat to other local resturaunts in the area and decided to give it a go themselves. So happy they did as we loved this place. The quality of the food is amazing and the chefs aint bad either, I had a ribeye and fillet steak and both were really good quality, very well cooked and accompanied by the best hand cut chips ever. As a steak eater I would thouroughly recommend this place. The first night my partner had the Seafood Mariniere.....it was massive and it seemed as though they used the mussels just as a filler & there were masses of them) and from what he said it only got better...it also had 4 hugh crab claws, langustines, prawns and local caught fish, let me tell you he struggled, but managed to finish. The chefs Lavander bread is also delicious. It had a really good wine list that won't brreak the bank. The staff are really friendly and welcoming and are really helpful too! If you are visiting Newquay then definetly give this place a try, I promise you wont regret it. Lovely people, lovely atmosphere and will absolutely be going back!!!

“Amazing food and superb service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

my husband I ate here on the bank holiday Sunday. We did not book and the restaurant was full - which is always a good sign. The very kind owner let us sit for a few minutes whilst she found a table for us. My husband had the sea bass and I had trio of fish. Really was stunning food. All staff work very hard to make this an enjoyable experience. Decor was okay and this really is about the food and service. Will return to this delightful restaurant.

“Absolutely the place to go for fresh seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Sadly we ventured here on the last day of our holiday! The food was excellent and cooked in an open kitchen where you could see the chefs at work.

We had mussels with chorizo (Spanish theme that evening) for starter and my husband had seafood marniere for main whereas I had surf and turf. Both were excellent. The chefs lavender bread was something we'd never had before and was very good.

The staff were really friendly and helpful.

It will be a must next time we visit Newquay!

“Excellent food and great service - a little gem - Go and visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We've just come back from a 4 day break in Newquay and ate here on the second day of our trip. We enjoyed dinner so much that we ate here again on the last night as the food and dinning experience was so good that it seemed pointless walking up and down looking at other restaurants or spending ages looking at websites. Also our son was dying to try one of their amazing fillet steak.

The quality of the ingredients and cooking was first class and the waiting staff had that wonderful knack of being unobtrusive but being there when one needed something. A well chosen, well priced wine list also helped.

We really enjoyed the few days in Newquay and when we return the Butcher's Bistro will definitely be the restaurant we will visit on our first night.

“Perfect after trying everything else in Newquay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Was great, fully booked, but still fitted me and family in. Seafood was exceptional, kids happy. What more could you ask for. Seafood mariniere and scallops were absolutely top notch, Chablis was like nectar and the cheese plate was gorgeous. Only ever had a nicer meal at Michelin restaurants. Service great, ambience great. Food incredible. If you are in Newquay, don't try the rest as we did. Go straight for the butchers bistro.
Thanks
