We have just had our second meal at Captain Jacks.. both times the food and service has been amazing.. The scallops were to die for. We were offered fresh crab but declined as I wanted the catch of the day and it was superb (hake).. This is a must visit for adults and kids alike...

Well.. The place was dead, most likely the reason i am writing this. Me and the girlfriend asked for a steak, what we didn't ask for is are steak to be chucked into a fire (so burnt it was black), thrown around the room, cooked again in a mircowave and back on the "plate". Alright fair enough, chefs hate doing... More

Hi James, You are correct, Newquay is very quiet this time of year however we are busier than most. I would like to bring attention to a few points in your review of our restaurant; we don't actually offer our prime Cornish Steaks well done as meat becomes tough and overcooked when you drain all the juice from them, however...

This place was recommended by our landlady when we stayed & we weren't disappointed! Great food, atmosphere, staff etc. Would definitely recommend the Coquilles St Jacques :)
