We chose Mermaid Alley for an end of show luncheon (following our week's performance at Minack). There were 32 of us. We asked the chef to provide us with a buffet lunch and it turned out this was the first buffet since they took over the restaurant from Mackerel Sky. We ask for food that would also cater for the vegetarians/vegans in our group. We agreed a menu at £15 a head.

We couldn't have been more delighted. We were warmly greeted. The food arrived exactly at the time we had ordered (some of our group had a train to catch). There was a great selection of food to suit our tastes. It was well presented and delicious. There were encouraging comments all round and, from a group that large, that is a testament to the skill of the chef.

The venue, which is on two floors, is comfortable and beautifully decorated and has a bright, fresh atmosphere. With 32 in our group, it pushed the limits of the venue and, although a couple of us had to stand, this mattered little. The staff were friendly, courteous and efficient without being over-attentive.

A successful first buffet.

We called in here as it had a good range of meals at reasonable prices. There were five of us so we were seated upstairs in a very pleasant dining area. The waitress was very friendly and attentive and we all found something on the menu and specials board we liked. We all ordered different things but were really pleased with our food. The portions were a good size and there was a good choice of drinks too. The place was nicely decorated and had a nice relaxing vibe with good background music, and the toilets were spotless. We decided that this was probably our favourite meal on our holiday and would recommend it.

Ate here last night with friends and we had an amazing evening. Cocktails great, food delicious. All 4 of us had something different to eat and each meal for each course was equally as good. Service was great too. We'll definitely be back, brilliant to see them doing so well.
