The sun came out to the enhance one of the loveliest restaurant views over St Mawes Bay. On hearing this was a treat for my 65 th birthday we were offered a complimentary champagne before settling down to the super value lunchtime special. The food was delicious and the service friendly, efficient and in no way intrusive. They then bought... More

Situated in the elegant Tresanton Hotel. Restaurant overlooks the sea. Great service and top notch food. They really try hard. Tonight I had the duck ... very tasty. Wife had the hake .. dry happy with that. Then home made ice creams. A great little spot in Cornwall. We will be coming again next year.

Having stayed at the Idle rocks thought we would compare restaurants and we both thought that the limited food choices the dry bread on the table we pointed out to the staff and a massive price at the end. This was in complete contrast to the far superior Idle Rocks hotel. The ambiance too was not that great as tables... More

We were very disappointed with lunch here. OK, it was a Tuesday out of season but all the signs were that this once top notch establishment was lacking in maintenance over the years. terrace furniture was starting to rust and the main dining room seemed soul-less; over-filled with small, wobbly tables with un-pressed white tablecloths. Two very ordinary crab salads,... More

The hotel is a lovely setting and beautifully furnished. The food at lunch is very good but not fine dining level (or price). The views from the outside terrace over the sea is fantastic. Child friendly too - there were a lot of other children at lunch.

We were visiting to celebrate a birthday and they certainly made it special. The food was delicious and very worthy of the occasion and the only area less than perfect was the service which was slightly haphazard on our visit but quickly corrected with a smile.

We went as a family, 2 adults and 2 teenagers, for a birthday lunch. It had been recommended to me. I was attracted on web preview to set lunch menu but on arrival we see that it is limited to one dish for each course. Many (better) restaurants offer some choice in set lunch menus. However, we had one set... More

The menu changes daily according to what's available from the fishermen, which is great. The cooking was excellent - seafood cooked perfectly with a delicate touch, not overly complicated, gorgeous plating. Really enjoyed the dishes and the chefs did justice to the seafood. Service was great, and you can see lots of regulars there, almost like a community. A restaurant... More
