Be very careful of arranging your meal out around this one, It has no website to go from other than looking at other linked sites, you will not be able to find out the times of opening unless you call them. What ever you do do not chance that they will be serving when you get there. Half way down... More

Big portion of chips is what you want when you are spending all day on the beach. Lovely staff, tasty coffee and free biscuits :)

This place has a prime position overlooking a lovely bay and should be hugely popular and buzzing. We had coffee and cake there which was ok. However, although the waitress was pleasant, she was incredibly slow.......it took at least 20 minutes to make our coffee. The place looked tired and it needed a good clean. It had some nice paintings... More

Lovely setting on the beach side. Didn't have food as when I asked on Sat the 10th I was told they stop serving at 7pm when the sign said 9pm. Had a coffee after a trip to the beach and staff were friendly and chatty.

To say we were disappointed by every aspect of our visit is an understatement. We booked some weeks ago for a 60th birthday so were shocked when most of the menu had sold out and what remained on the menu was disappointing and over priced. Our table was upstairs with half the party having the stunning view and the other... More

Had absolutely beautiful fish and chips, gorgeous soya lattes, overlooking the sea and beach and the staff were nice. The fish and chips were quality over quantity, plenty to get full without the needless mountain of chips.

As locals we really wanted to love this place. Perfect location right on the beach. We were booked in for early evening late Aug & on arrival we were shown to an upstairs table & left. No offer of a drink. Some 15 mins later we asked if we could have drinks & we ordered them. A food order followed... More

The first of the beach cafes - setting the tone for gastro food with a view that has been copied around the Cornish peninsula with enormous success. Good food, friendly helpful staff, and a pleasant atmosphere. The puds were the cakes that were served all day - so these were less tempting than the mains if you'd had a brownie... More

Managed to get a table on the balcony. Surprised by the menu not the usual suspects. Great beer and lunch enjoyed the smoked mackerel salad. Expensive but it is st Agnes and we did have a lovely sea view. I do think the tables need a good clean . Warned there would be a long wait about 35 minutes but... More
