Good food made with fresh ingredients. Great friendly relaxed service. Lovely location on the Quay. Atmosphere was lacking. The menu tries to offer something for everyone, pizza, pasta, fresh fish, a steak, etc. However, I could not find anything on the menu that I fancied!...More

Dined at Amelies as it seemed much more value for money than rick Stein's next door. The restaurant was quiet when we dined, so we were seated quickly and had a table of four between the two of us. The menu had a wide variety...More

The freshest ingredients sourced from the best local suppliers. A relaxed, waterside atmosphere where you can sit back and relax. Service that's memorable for all the right reasons. At Amelies, Porthleven and sister company Gourmet Picnics we share the same ethos which runs through everything we do. Come and experience it for yourself. Please note in the winter season we do close on a Monday day and Tuesday day, re-opening Tuesday evening.
