Ate a selection of the tapas and everything we had was outstandingly good. So good we’ve booked for tonight too! Great service as well as great food and a lovely quirky cosy environment.

Booked lunch here rather than going for the popular well known Michelin chef places. Had a really good review rating on TripAdvisor and Google so thought it was worth trying........no regrets!
Beautifully fresh ingredients, expertly prepared with a combination of flavours that are wow!
Will definitely return and would recommend to all.

Booked as a couple for a celebratory lunch. The positives: Nice location close to the harbour, great marketing concept, attractive window display that entices diners to book and very good service.
The negatives: inconsistent quality of the sharing plates (ranging from excellent to poor), thought that one or two of the flavour/texture combinations were inappropriate, generally over priced and felt uncomfortably 'hemmed in' due to the cramped seating.
On balance, glad to have tried the restaurant but the standard of the sea food and its preparation was average and we felt underwhelmed by the whole experience. Unlikely to return.

Booked ahead as recommended. Glad we did as the restaurant was quite busy for a Tuesday lunch. Everything we ate was superb, a fantastic opportunity to try new dishes, new flavours and the freshest of fish. We loved it. Also shared a bottle of Cornish wine from the nearby Trevibban vineyard which was delicious. The service was efficient, knowledgeable and friendly. Not the cheapest of meals but a wonderful treat, we will return.

Great seafood, great service and a really interesting menu. There's the usual 'straight out of the sea classics' like the fruits de mer platter but we also really enjoyed the sharing plates - hake, harissa and chick peas; a courgette flower with crab for example - in particular is something you''d never normally try but it was a dream. It was busy but never rushed. Great drinks menu (try the Padstow cider!). The deep fried oysters will live long in the memory. One tip - it's a lot easier to book if you go in in advance, the phone/online booking can be a bit strict and shows no availability whereas if you pop in they can always sort something out for you it seems. It's worked for us both times we've been there.
