“Good food, not too pricey”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I ate here on July 1st. The food was very well cooked and very tasty indeed. Service was a tad on the slow side but not too bad. The decor of the place is superb but with the people sitting near the window needing the curtains drawn because of the bright sunlight, it was a bit dark where we sat. There were two waitresses serving who were both friendly and helpful although one of them looked like she'd just come from an exercise class. That said I would be happy to eat here again and recommend it.

We had a good night with a tasty dinner. It was ok, but not the best ever. The restaurant was not full but a service was not very quick. Prices not ridiculously expensive, but not for this value.

“a french touch”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

silva and I went here sunday night on the bank holiday weekend, the hosts from the house on props recommended we tried there so we did.
The menu had lots of choices and being in a fishing village, fish- o- plenty. I had a starter, fish soup, and we both had steaks, with fresh veg and potatoes.
Nice wine and coffee, and a nice evening.

“Sorry but can't agree”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Thought the food was awful and over priced and the service terrible - will never go again.
Nice décor and fittings etc but flatters to deceive.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

great restaurant, the decor is in fitting with the quaint fishing village and the restaurant name, lovely and clean. We both had starters which were lovely and freshly cooked, then we both had the steak, beautifully cooked with fresh veg and fries. unfortunately we didnt have room for dessert but we did look at the menu and were very tempted. They do allow dogs in the restaurant but we were asked if we allergic before the waitress took our order, to be fair we forgot the two dogs that were in the restauarant were there, but many people would have an issue with this i think, Polperro is very dog friendly so something to think about when you visit.
