Description: We are a modern European restaurant with a French twist combined with the best in Cornish hospitality nestling right in the heart of the beautiful port of Fowey. We pride ourselves on sourcing the freshest, local produce available and producing dishes of the highest quality. We have a lunch menu from 12 - 6 every day and then a more extensive and creative Evening Menu. Every Sunday we produce our Sunday Roast with a selection of meats using the same attention to detail we use on the rest of our menu to produce a roast Mother would be proud of! Top it off with our superb selection of wines and spirits, Cornish beer and lager, and you have the perfect combination

The Bistro Fowey,
We have visited this restaurant many times, it just gets better and better. Their food is really good. Grant makes sure you have a nice meal. He is a rugby player from New Zealand, had a contact with English club.
As manager of the restaurant, he is exelent. Chef prepares wonderful food. You are offered both fish - shelfish and meat dishes, always well prepared and very good. Gran also offers a good wine list.
Well worth the visit!

We very much enjoyed the Christmas Menu with a group of friends on 15 Dec. As always the food was excellent, portions were a little on the large size, but quality and presentation were fantastic.

We feel that the service could be improved with a little training! A great deal of unnecessary leaning-over by the waitresses would be our observation, particularly on this evening!! The staff generally miss opportunities to sell you more wine and drinks and we had to ask for coffee.

We believe the food at The Bistro is the best in Fowey at the current time. Well done to Glynn and his team in the kitchen.

This venue is a little more upmarket than some of its neighbours but certainly doesn't break the bank. With a varied menu including prix fixe options and a specials board, diners are spoilt for choice. Although it offers seafood and fish, it's a well balanced menu with options for all palates.
