At the harbour head in this lovely village is an excellent restaurant. The menu is relatively small but very varied and there's something for everyone. Service is very good and the food well presented. We were a group of four and each persons choice was flavoursome, hot and tasted good. Would recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly.

We returned for Karrie's birthday, the staff were welcoming and friendly as usual. It took us a while to choose from the menu, but once we had, it was worth it. The food was delicious, although we shared the pudding

My husband and I had an excellent evening meal at the Square. The staff were friendly, and the food delicious. Wish I'd had room for pud!

From a warm welcome to a fantastic meal which arrived without a long wait. The staff were really attentive, the atmosphere warm, the food was plentiful, hot, and very tasty ! This has to be the best place we have eaten for a long time. I can thoroughly recommend The Square which gives good value for money. I write this... More

I went here for a Thursday lunch where I was served by an ever smiling Lucy. The meal of three courses was very nice coupled with a nice glass of wine. The venue was quite full with local people which is always a good sign.

I am so happy that friends took me to dinner here. I didn't know it existed. The restaurant is cosy and intimate.The food was excellent, cooked to perfection, displayed most attractively and served at the table with a genuinely friendly smile. All this at reasonable prices - what more could you want. I'll certainly be visiting again.

We are Swiss and French, i.e. we like good food. My wife and I both had fish. The dishes were perfect and the presentation excellent. The service provided by the young ladies was perfect. Definitely a place to recommend.

My friend and I walked from penrose to porthleven for lunch and chose to eat here as the sea drift was closed. We both had the seafood risotto. It was lovely, fresh mussels and king prawns. We will definitely go back! Worth the walk.

Exceptional Goan curry let down by slow service. 2 waitresses on duty, only 1 doing her job. Wish I could take half my tip back.
