Having walked around Port Isaaac looking for somewhere for lunch we stumbled across this place. We had the most delicious crab sandwich complimented with a chilled glass of white wine. Just thinking about it makes me want to experience it all over again. Tracy was very friendly & welcoming. If we're in the area again we would definitely return. Thank... More

Serving up a small selection of fresh caught & picked lobster & crab, sandwiches, rolls & salads. We visited on a sunny & warm March day so sat outside in the sheltered courtyard. Fresh lobster bisque was the special but the lobster sandwiches enjoyed with a glass of wine got top marks.

Closed out of season. This location offers excellent take-away crab sandwiches, made as you wait, nice artisan bread and includes sald, delicious. I always attempt to visit on the day of departure and eat the sandwich for lunch the following day to remind me of Port Isaac.

Once the lobster season begins get there early lunchtime as they ran out and sooooo many people wanted the lobster. A beautiful light lunch. One of my favourite meals in Cornwall -... More

I am so glad that we made the effort to go to Port Isaac. My wife did some research before we went and we decided to eat at Fresh from the Sea. The food was incredible. I recommend the lobster sandwich which was amazing. Thank you so much for such lovely food.

Perhaps reading earlier reviews set my expectations too high. Yes the crab sandwich was good, but the menu was limited, and I have had better.

We stopped here for a coffee, and could not resist the purchase of some of the lovely fresh catch on display. The crab was really fresh and tasty, the hake and lemon sole are some of the best we have tasted.. will be making a return visit!

This is the third season that we have visited this wonderful little cafe and shop. We visited twice during our visit, the second time on our journey home. The team here prepare the food freshly and the crabs and lobsters are very very fresh, straight off the boat infact. We ordered sandwiches to collect for the journey home and they... More

Just had a late lunch here with my husband at the end of our trip to Port Isaac. Had the half lobster salad and the crab salad. Both were delicious. Both seafood and salad was very fresh and tasty. Sat outside with our 2 dogs, staff were nice and jolly.
