“fantastic little restaurant”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I had stuffed mushrooms followed by carbonara, my wife had calamari followed by lasagne, and it was all amazingly good. Can not recommend this place enough. The restaurant is pretty, the service helpful and friendly, Chris out front is such a charmer and i think his girlfriend or wife doing the food is outstanding. I said i would sign up to trip advisor just to leave this review. If you're in the area, just go.

“Fantastic Italian Food”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We went here on the first night of our staying in Tintagel and it was so good we went back again on the second night and even when we went to another restaurant the next night we still called in for cheese and biscuits with a glass of port.
C hris who is front of house, very friendly and helpful and the food cooked by his partner (not sure if it is his wife) was excellent . We had a variety of dishes as we were 6 in the group and every thing was wonderful. If you are staying in the area go there it is well worth a visit.

“intimate dining - bliss!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

we live locally & regularly eat here as it doesn't offer mass produced microwave pub grub which is sadly what most of the other eateries in the village offer. we generally come away well fed & service is usually good - tourists just need to remember that you're on holiday & if you want fast food go to McDonald's!!

“Lovely food great service”
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We went to this restaurant as a group of four adults and five children. The service was friendly and personal and although we went at the beginning of November and were the only ones in the restaurant there was still a good atmosphere and the place was warm and welcoming on a wet November night.
The starters were deliciously tasty and the house red wine was very good. Our main courses were all freshly cooked and full of flavour. Over all we all really enjoyed our experience at this restaurant and will definitely return next time we are in tintagel.
