Went with my husband and our two young lads for an early lunch. They all had a brekky and I had a sandwich. Really, really good food. Portions are a good size - we were full all day. Really pleasant and friendly staff - even tho they were mega busy. Great little place - good value. A great find 😄

Surprisingly delicious food from what looks like a fairly ordinary sea side cafe. Very good value too. I would definitely return.

He was the grumpiest person ever, but the food was good and it's a cute little place with outside tables too. If like me you don't like butter make sure you tell them as they put... More

After a few drinks on fistral beach we headed to the Fistral Chef for a late evening meal - they generally stay open until late, even the kitchen!

Love this chill out place. They even do special requests! The no1 cooked breakfast was brilliant as it cured our hangover. Really nice staff.
