Description: Imagine…….. sitting on the veranda of a restaurant which nestles among rugged cliffs, gazing at the golden sands and the sea, stained scarlet, as the sun sets. Is this the Italian Riviera? No, this is Life’s a Beach, overlooking Summerleaze beach in Bude, Cornwall, where the location and the cuisine are as fine as any in the world.The wide ranging menu uses fresh local produce and reflects the creativity and travelling experiences of the young chefs. Seafood is a speciality, prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is always relaxed and friendly.The restaurant opens at 7pm but during the day it transforms into a facility for beach goers. There is an ice cream parlour, a beach shop and a café where meals, snacks and drinks can be enjoyed on the premises overlooking the beach or taken away.‘Lifes a Beach’ is already highly acclaimed as the place to eat out in Bude, so why not come and judge for yourself?

We booked a weekend away in Cornwall. We’re recommended this restaurant by a number of people and it didn’t let us down. I had the crab bisque and the monkfish curry. Both delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend

We booked into LAB for dinner on Saturday - it was delicious as always - and had breakfast after a long walk with our pups on Monday - it was the best breakfast I’ve had in ages! Every time we come to Bude we head straight for LAB - the food is fresh, beautifully cooked and delicious, the staff are friendly and helpful and the views are amazing. Love this place!

I have eaten at Lifes a Beach now for 2 consecutive holidays and both times every day. The food is always fresh and delicious. The staff are very nice people who really know what they are doing. The atmosphere is fantastic right on the beach which gives a fantastic view. Even when you have finished eating it’s lovely just to sit outside drinking a tea and talking to the friendly locals whilst taking in the breathtaking views of not just the beach but all the surfers .

stayed in the area for a week and visited life's during lunchtime on several occasions for coffee and light snacks. did manage at lunchtime to get a portion ol large prawns with sides and this was beautiful and the sandwiches on the other day was great too. we did not manage to book in for the weekend as it was booked out !!! Friday 28.9. would have thought end of season easy access but as the fish menu looked so good, no wonder its booked well in advance. at least one taste of Cornwall was good at lunchtime. Prices reasonable, and menu prices looked ok for what you would get in the evening, service with a smile too. would have given you 5 star but you only serve drinks with food !!! I can understand it, but its a bit limiting for the visitors. I would have thought they could implicate this from June-End August ? the view from the place over Bude beach magnificent and we went on various walks along the beach and top walk too. end of September 21 degrees what more can you wish for. first time in BUDE we will be back and BOOK IN ADVANCE....

First the staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. The views are exceptional at sunset especially. And when the food arrives, you are not disappointed. Best sea bream I have ever had. Highly recommend.
