This little gem was recommended to us by a local shopkeeper. It sits right on the harbour with lovely views and a bright, airy decor. There were lots of lovely choices on the lunch menu. My sister opted for chicken breast with chorizo, crispy polenta, butter beans pepper fondue, which was delicious. I opted for the mushroom arancini with pea... More

Arrived and were seated immediately. Very welcoming staff and service was excellent. The food arrived on time and was lovely local produce. Comfortable and friendly atmosphere and not too expensive. Great!

We live locally and had eaten at this restaurant previously when it was much better. I had problems booking a table as they said they were full. Only after arguing did they agree to give us a table at the time we'd asked for but we then found that there were several empty tables through the time we were there.... More

A wonderful restaurant, with an excellent menu. Pleasant & attentive staff. The seafood is fresh & delicious. The chocolate mousse should be x rated, it is utterly brilliant & very tasty

We had an excellent meal on a Thursday evening which was busy but organised. Whilst quite small, the tables aren't cramped together so makes for a comfortable dining experience. The waiting staff were very professional and efficient. We both had the pate starter which was delicious, along with the home made bread- lovely. My partner enjoyed the monkfish and I... More

We were staying pre-cruise from Falmouth at the Premier Inn Honiton where there was a kitchen disaster and the restaurant closed. We phoned The Square looking for a table at short notice. The food was excellent and the friendly service impeccable. I had Goan fish curry and it was superb. I can recommend this superb little restaurant without hesitation. It... More

We were on holiday in Porthleven & visited The Square twice. Both meals were lovely. It's in a lovely position right on the harbour, the staff were friendly & helpful. Would definitely recommend it.

Let me start by saying that I really like this place. I've eaten here a few times & found it to be consistently good. However, this visit was for the first time, just for 'coffee & cake'. Two of us; 1 flat white, 1 hot choc(no fancy things), 1 piece of flapjack. Both drinks came in very small cups ,... More
