This place was demolished last autumn. Good news: another restaurant is being rebuilt in the same spot! Workmen said it would open in May 2017. Hope so - looks like its going to be a fabulous new venue. Hope they'll do the Seafood linguine again - it was awesome!!!

This is our second stay at Tolcarne, and we have had a fantastic stay. Its sad news that The Breaks is closing. The site is being redeveloped, and i hope it will be sympathetically done. I would like to say thanks to the staff who always made us feel very welcome with a smile and a cold beer.

The Breaks is strategically situated for a between surfing coffee or an apres-surf dinner as it's to be found to the rear of Tolcarne Beach. It's squeezed in between beach huts and accommodation and has a panoramic terrace. When we arrived on a Friday evening without a reservation it was already quite busy. We were advised to find a table... More

We used to visit here in previous years when it was owned by somebody else and under a different name. When this placed moved we were gutted that we weren't going to be able to eat great food in this beautiful setting any more. This year on our annual family trip we were delighted to discover the breaks had opened... More

The restaurant has a really nice chilled atmosphere. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were brilliant! They were so friendly and attentive from the moment we arrived. Our waitress with the ginger hair was lovely, smiley and very helpful. We will be returning next time we are in Newquay. It was a very lucky find!

Best dinner I've had in a long time! The food may be a bit pricier than some other restaurants in the area, however the portion size and quality sure make up for it!
