We were staying at Tregarthens and had a beautiful meal there but decided to try another restaurant for our final night. Wish we hadn't. The menu was very limited. I had a peculiar starter of asparagus with orange sauce. The asparagus was totally overdone and soggy and orange really does not go with it. As it was Sunday there was roast beef. Had a feeling it was left over from lunch. It came with boiled potatoes, roast potatoes, roast parsnips and mange tout. Totally overkill on the carbohydrates.
The wine was very good though and we absolutely loved the roof terrace. It was wonderful sitting there with a glass before and after our meal. Next time I think we will skip the food and just have an aperitif on the roof.

Excellent food and good service in this daytime café. Lovely garden with views. Great sandwiches and cream teas (share one they are big).

This is in the Atlantic Hotel and although we have been to the Scillies many times we have never eaten here. Funny experience as the food was good but it was of full of older ladies on what I would think is a package trip of some kind. If you can get past the old fashioned atmosphere and menu the service is good and the view is great

We were in the Scillys in September and were lucky enough to bag a spot at the Tides Reach on their £20 set menu. In fact they even managed to conjure up a table at the first seating for us (with only 20 minutes notice) so that we could enjoy the Scillonian Entertainers last performance of the season!
The food was all very good although not spectacular like some other establishments we enjoyed during our visit. The portions were not large but that was a refreshing change after many huge meals. The view is lovely and you can add on a serve-yourself dessert buffet for something like £5. There was a very international mix of young staff who were all friendly and helpful.
We would definitely return but not sure I'd pay the full a la carte prices, these are perhaps geared more towards the hotel guests.
