Dropped by after a long drive with our 3 and 7 year old and had an amazing lunch. Wonderful service. Fantastic fresh fish. Recommend 100%.

Lovely lunch here last week. 3 fish dishes chosen and a bowl of chips. All the fish dishes were fresh and tasty. With glass of Savignon blanc will take some beating for a summer lunch. Staff very pleasant and will certainly be returning soon.

Have visited several times since it opened lovely food and great if you want fast food but forget a relaxed evening out. The restaurant is extremely small so the concept is a quick turnaround. Visited this evening with my family of 4 but only 2...More

A must if you are in the area. Very cool concept and very well executed. Tiny inside and not the most glamorous location but brilliant food cooked right in front of you. Aside from Ben’s in Marazion my favourite eatery in the whole of Cornwall....More
