Nice location in Charlestown. No decent views of the harbour, but a bright, modern and airy interior. Nice ambience. Staff member was ok, but didn't seem to know what he was doing. Asked if we wanted jam & cream with a Cornish cream tea. Pushed us for drinks without giving us a chance to sit down. Silent communication with another... More

We were greeted on our arrival by a very friendly waitress who showed us to our table. I instantly felt relaxed and welcome. The décor is spot on in my opinion, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere and all the staff appeared to be very friendly and efficient. Good food and drinks menu, with plenty to choose from.

Service was excellent and the food was tasty and quick service. The atmosphere was set just right for a low key kind of place with good music. Loved the food and the size of the place is just right. Would be good for a function night.

At Coffee time this place is often buzzing. The coffee is excellent. Service is good and the sofa areas are comfy. Sitting outside in good weather is perfect.

Visited on a Sunday evening for a bite to eat. The restaurant is a combination of comfy sofas and a slightly more formal eating area, very comfortable and relaxing. The staff were very friendly with a good selection of beers and wines. I haven't seen Estrella on draught in a long time, so this was a nice surprise. I chose... More

We love this place. The atmosphere is vibrant and the decor looks great. We like the comfy sofa area and I always have my fingers crossed for a spot there. The pizza is excellent, crispy and very reasonably priced at £7.95 and big enough for two. Pizza is the meal it's so hard to do well at home and nice... More
