We had googled best restaurants in Cornwall before we went and this one came up so we decided to pay a visit. Having visited many times over the past 20 years or so and including Marazion, we weren’t even aware this restaurant existed, but what...More

I had two really good moments this evening. To start with the second, it was reading the bad reviews for this place. People gave it 1 star because it wasn't open on the 1st of January and 3 stars because they didn't have a sea...More

Lovely 3 course set menu. All cooked to perfection. All three courses were delicious. The service was unobtrusive-just the way I like it to be. Loved the 100ml glasses of wine.

Such a find and deserves to be busier than it is. Cool, laid back, unpretentious, but with great service and outstanding food, and such good value. Sad we didn't discover this gem sooner, but suffice to say it'll be a staple of every other visit...More

If you go in the evening then the car park for St Michael's Mount is almost opposite which has lots of spaces. They charge when the attendant is there, usually in the evening there is no one to pay so it is free.
