Have been coming here for many years, unfortunately it seems to be in a slow but steady decline. Apparently no tables until 9:00pm on a Tuesday evening, however we arrived promptly for our booking to find the restaurant not even half full. Pretentiously worded menu...More

We took a cab from Newlyn to here for a special occasion and enjoyed our experience immensely. Excellent staff, comfortable tables well positioned and a great view out to sea. Popular place judging by the need to book and parking is only for "stayers", though...More
