This place is insanely good. Lots of Newquay food is fatty and bland - Lakeside is one of my favorite restuarants anywhere. Fresh food, great variety, vegetarian friendly and not stupidly expensive. Hands down the best food in Newquay and it's good a lovely view...More

Nice setting but nothing special about the food, very average. Very limited menu especially for people who do not like eating meat.

Quality food, very nice evening. Friendly service. Great atmosphere in the restaurant. We were during evening but I have already been during day time and you can also enjoy the great view of the lake. Will definitively come back!

Popped in for a late light lunch. Had pate, toast and salad which was lovely. Service great and pleasant atmosphere. Will return. Only negative was 'people born in a barn'. Maybe a weighted door as the other end of the cafe would solve that problem

Sorry Lakeside I just have to put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard. A 50p surcharge on a contactless card payment for coffee and cake because it didn't reach your minimum spend. Can't think of another business I use that has a minimum spend...More

This is a surprising delightful restaurant in the evening - a café during the day and an amazing restaurant in the evening. The 'specials board' has a comprehensive choice of dishes, expertly cooked and nicely presented - and could compete on a par with many...More

First visit here today, the lunch is amazing! Ham and coleslaw sandwich.... this is no ordinary sandwich! Absolutely beautiful! The wife had Brie and roasted vegetable ciabatta and that too was amazing! £15 with drinks.. an absolute steal!
