Nestled in the soft undulating dunes on the outskirts of Newquay, with breathtaking views of the North Coast; prepare to make Offshore your new 'go to' bar and bistro! Whether you are wanting an intimate, sunset drenched meal for two in the restaurant, coffee and cake with friends on our comfy sofas, or simply a chance to snuggle under cosy blankets with wine and nibbles on our glass-fronted Mediterranean terrace, you will be greeted like old friends and served the finest local, sustainably sourced food and drink in a setting like no other. If there is one thing we can assure you of; your time at Offshore is something you won't forget in a hurry.

“Fabulous food at an excellent price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Popped into Offshore Cornwall today for lunch with my parents and baby and had an excellent meal.

The venue looks a little strange from the car park, but as you enter and head downstairs you are greeted with a beautiful view of the countryside. The restaurant is built into the side of the hill and has a large window with views from every table.

Service was excellent and the menu offered an array of delicious lunches including seafood, ciabatta style sandwiches and other classic bistro meals.

I ordered a Bouillabaisse which was packed full of flavour, fish, mussels and prawns in a delicious sauce served with toasted ciabatta. It was a massive portion and I loved every mouthful. The sweet roasted peppers topped with pesto on top added an extra level of flavour. My parents ordered the Kofta and the Calamari. All dishes were presented artistically and looked like they could have been served in a fine dining restaurant for double the price.

We followed up with a citrus tart, chocolate tart and a blackberry bavarois. Again the sweets were presented excellently and the citrus tart was just as I had hoped for bitter and yet sweet and accompanied with a blackberry icecream which complimented the flavours.

We all enjoyed our meals and would definitely return, the only criticism being the chips were a little over salted - all in all though a great find and one we hope stays around.

“Superb food, outstanding location at modest cost.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Had a superb meal here one evening just after it reopened. The excellent food, delightful ambience, friendly and efficient service would have been enough to entice us back. But the lights twinkling in the distance meant we simply had to return to see the view in daylight. And we were not disappointed. It is a unique view of a of Cornwall which just accentuates the pleasurable experience of lunch at Offshore. Here is a chef who clearly knows how to prepare and present good food at realistic prices. We have returned for a third time, bringing friends to share the experience, and shall look forward to returning again and again. This restaurant will further enhance the culinary reputation of Cornwall and cannot be too highly recommended.
