My husband and I keep on going to treat ourselves quite often at this restaurant and if we keep on going back it means that we are pleased with the service, location and quality of food. The ambient is nice and staff pretty professionally friendly. We recently visited the May Tree restaurant opened in Camborne, which is it's twin brother from Helston and we've had the same pleasant experience. We will go back to either of them!

My wife and i went to visit this establishment this evening and to be honest i cant see how the bad reviews have come about. Service was excellent as was the standards.I do beliveve that honest mistakes do happen,but i do think if as a customer you can open a dialogue instead of being condesending to the hosts this will always get you the remedy you would like. Many thanks to our server Dan and to Vicky (hope that is spelt right) for a relaxing evening and we will be back.

This was a very disappointing experience. We had to find a waitress to get our order as we waited so long. It took them 30 minutes to put a drink on the table and another 30 minutes before any food showed up. The food wasn't too bad, albeit a little on the cold side. We waited, and waited for the waitress to return to take the desert order and another drink order. Once again we had to find a waitress to serve us. I complained to the manager, who was out the back in her office (not helping) she refused to give me her boss's details to formally complain. She said, "it is unusually busy tonight". Management 101 - you should never say that to customers, its not their problem! We also noticed she went to 3 other tables just in our area to talk to other customers who were complaining. She did give us complimentary deserts & drinks but I won't go back.
