My husband and I had dinner last night at this restaurant and it was excellent. I had popped in the day before to discuss medical dietary requirements including the need to be gluten free and a very small portion due to other factors. They were extremely helpful and accommodating, so we booked a table. The dinner was delicious and totally... More

We so enjoyed the food at The Square that we dined there on three separate evenings during a five night stay in Porthleven. The restaurant is relaxed and the serving staff friendly; yet the service was always good.

This was a family birthday meal for our party which included a vegetarian. Having enquired the day before we were assured that all requirements could be accommodated, just ask on the night. Well we booked and were not disappointed the table was ours for the evening, no pressure to turn over tables as is often the case in Porthleven nowadays.... More

Recommended by Stan, we were not let down. 5 of us had a fabulous meal, trying a range of dishes and all were very very happy with their choices. I had the crab starter which was excellent, particularly with sparkling Camel Valley. Main course was superb hake, great simple flavours complemented with a simple chablis. Topped off with some great... More

Didn't book but ĺucky to get one of only two remaining tables. There was a meal deal available. Staff, though young, we're obviously trained to a high standard which is good to see. Pleasant outlook and experience.

We were recommended The Square by another visitor to Porthleven. We went on a Monday night and it was full! The atmosphere was good, the service very good and the food superb. In the day it has views over Porthleven harbour so we'll have to return!

Stopped here on two separate occasions this weekend for coffee & cake. We were not disappointed. Excellent coffee, delicious cake all served by friendly helpful staff. Icing on the cake was having a perfect window table to enjoy the view of the harbour. We will definitely go back & next time for lunch!
