We found this place by sheer accident, it's tucked away up above the ice cream bar and up some steps that give no indication of the lovely restaurant that awaits at the top....when we first went we were expecting a tiny non descript place but in fact it really does have the wow factor and have been a few times...

A fantastic little cafe located right on top of Fistral beach. We had breakfast there and it was excellent. Fantastic value, the quality of food was superb and we got service with a smile. We sat out on the patio and watched the surfers trying to catch a wave. Lovely.

I popped in with my very excited dogs and couldn't have been made more welcome. My dogs were even entertained whilst I went to the loo! The view is amazing. The breakfast was spot on . Will definitely be making a return visit

Stopped off for tea & cake. Sat by the window looking out over Fistral beach. Beautiful setting will come back again during the summer months for an evening meal to enjoy the sunset. I had slice of GF orange & almond cake - nice & moist with lovely flavour.

Had a nice lunch here whilst admiring the bay and the large numbers of frankly insane surfers! Service was friendly and quick and our soup was very nice if a little unusual for the advertised "spicy parsnip" did not complain as it was nice and warming. They clearly have a good range of the substantial to the snack type meals... More

I have been coming to Fistral for 25 years so when this was first built some years back I was appalled that planners would desecrate the beach (we won't even mention North Fistral), but I visited Bodhi's and was won over. The view. The grub. The setting. I visit two or three times per year. My friends regularly have the... More

Went to Bodhi's for an evening meal and was pleasantly surprised. We thought it was just going to be cafe food but it was absolutely delicious. I had the slow roasted Cornish pork belly and it was to tasty. We've also popped in for an ice cream and coffee and its a great place to sit and watch the sun... More

We first visited here for lunch on recommendation of a friend. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly and welcoming. We consequently returned a couple of days later for breakfast. Again we left fully satisfied with the quality of the food and service. On top of everything else the constantly changing view across Fistral Beach is truly stunning.
