We have been coming to the Smugglers Cottage restaurant for the last 13 years, and its one of the best eating places in Looe. Great service.. locally sourced food cooked to perfection, and you never leave hungry.. portions are plenty.

It was very quiet - only two groups in on a Sunday evening in February. The waiter was excellent - helpful and friendly but not intrusive. Wonderful fish - sea bass and coal fish - beautifully cooked.
