Nothing can beat the ambience sitting having delicious romantic dinner watching the tide going out in the harbour. It is our favourite memory of Newquay. We will definitely be going back. The food was amazing. The service was on point. We love the boathouse.

A group of family and friends, table of 10 in total. The children ordered the larger portion of pasta which was luke warm when it arrived and cost £16. The steaks were not cooked as requested and extremely overpriced and came with 4 potatoe wedges....More

Eaten here a couple of times now while on holiday and both times have been excellent. Friendly staff, nice view of the harbour (try and get a table outside) and very tasty reasonably priced food. Dog friendly as well.

Visited here Sunday evening. Good food and service. Had an outside table overlooking the harbour. Recommend you book in advance as Resturant is very popular.

Hi there, probably best to call and check specific allocation of parking with the restaurant. The harbour has parking spaces nearby a few of which are disabled. All the best!
