We came across this place when looking for a casual meal out.
We sat inside and had a very charming waiter, we opted for nachos to share to start wow! Amazing and very large portion defiantly best nachos had !
Should have saved more room for mains though I had the hotdog which was again huge ! The chips were not he best ever but ok the coleslaw was yummy !
My fiancé had a steak, again well cooked and looked delicious, he (a chef) commented that it was a little dry but he did point out that this is not down to the cooking but just the meat itself.
Overall a great meal
Oh and if you sit outside stunning views,

Huge portions of food, fantastic view from the outdoor decking seating area over the beach and very reasonably priced.
We sat outside to enjoy the view and we were offered a blanket when it got a bit colder as the sun was setting.

My friend and I visited Newquay from Sheffield over August Bank Holiday. I had read about this place on here before the long drive down so decided to give it a go...we were not disappointed!

We were welcomed into the upstairs restaurant by a couple of lovely ladies who had to check with the chef if we were ok to eat there now or come back later (slightly strange as there were only a couple of tables in use at the time!) We were given the option to sit inside, or on the balcony outside...it was still warm outside so we picked the latter due to the stunning beach views and sunset.

I ordered the pulled pork burger (£11) and my friend ordered the pulled pork hotdog (£9.) After around 25mins, our main arrived and wow were they huge!

Not only were they huge, but they were absolutely delicious! There was stacks of pulled pork and tonnes of chips, so much that we couldn't finish it!

The waitresses were all very friendly and couldn't do enough to appease you, even bringing out lovely fleecy blankets when the temperature dropped.

Although the restaurant is called Fistral Surf Diner, it is actually much closer to Tolcarne, and set above a shop - this shouldn't put you off as it is well worth a visit!

You definetely have to come visit here, so happy we found this! Great atmosphere, cool interior, fresh food and beautiful view! Staff also super friendly and prices are reasonable. We came here for breakfast twice and once for coffee and cake on the terrace.

Make sure you visit this one! Great quality food, atmosphere, very reasonable prices and very friendly staff. Probably one of the best views from the deck too.
