“Friendly and good value”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Very comfortable with one of the best views in the world from the terrace (across Porthcressa Bay). Great choice of food and drink. Sorry that I only had the time to visit once. Friendly but efficient service and quite good value for money.

“Delicious and different”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Dibble and Grub is one of those places that every town should have, but very few do. It is a mixture of a cafe by day, and bistro by night. During e day it sells excellent coffee, cakes, sandwiches and, what makes it special in my opinion, a delicious range of tapas. In the evening the range of tapas is still offered, as well as a well thought out specials menu. The food is fresh and beautifully cooked with interesting combinations-vegetarians are especially well catered for, which is always a bonus.
The staff are friendly and efficient and the music funky. The view out of the window is stunning...even on a wet day! It is a shame about the building work going on along Porthcressaa Promenade, but once this is finished it should enhance the location.

“Wonderful coffees and lunches”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

After a long walk around the Garrison this is the perfect place to sit and watch the world go by overlooking Porthcressa Beach. Once the building project has been finished along the promenade the view will be even better. Delicious menu for lunch and the coffees are brilliant.
