    Eaten here several times and always been blown away by an innovative, dynamic and exciting sharing menu with EVERY dish delivering EVERY time - sorry Fitzroy but you are now way off! Returned to the standardised and, frankly boring 'starters, mains, desserts' format and a selection of the dishes were nothing short of sub-standard! Some of the wine was mediocre and very expensive, salt-fish fritters were little more than potato croquettes (couldn't taste any salt-fish!). Red Mullet dressing was too acidic, over-priced desserts were dull, and an enforced service charge of 12.5% for, frankly, average service. There always used to be as many front of house staff as kitchen staff but now two waiting staff only - one of whom I found a little patronising to be honest. I understand that there is a shortage of good hospitality staff at present but that said, if you are struggling for people, shouldn't the customer be allowed the discretion of whether or not to tip? You are now in the 'limited menu club'... Over £400.00 for poor value food, wine and service - Sorry, but it's just not what it was a couple of years ago... Bring back Jeremy to oversee quality and standards please. My advice... Asquiths in Lostwithiel is much better in terms of service, qualty and value.

    We found it very expensive and only 3 of the 4 mains dishes were available which was disappointing. Food was lovely but can’t understand how they justify £28 for veggie pasta!

    Pretentious, and definitely not achieving what they're trying to achieve. Arrived early and the curtains were closed. We peeked in not knowing if we should go through or not. We assumed not but although they saw us look a few times, no one came and explained that they'd be opening in a few minutes until I asked. Unusual selection of wines. Some in a barrel so were told it would be served in a carafe, it came in an old wine bottle! Not a massive problem but just a little sign of false impressions. There were only 4 main options. We ordered the rib of beef (cheaper than the vegetarian tagliatelle!) which came with onions and fried potatoes. I asked for a vegetable side and was told the only thing I could have was one of the only 2 side dishes, new potatoes or salad! I asked for the green beans as they were being served with another of the mains but was told I couldn't because they only had enough for the dish they were meant to go with. Not willing to budge at all, was told I could have the salad and that was it. My other half also ordered the cured monkfish for a starter. 4 very small, thin slices of monkfish that didn't seem to have been cured, and a couple of cherry tomatoes and was nowhere near worth the hefty £13 price tag, When the beef came it looked like the most unappetising plate of food either of us have ever seen, braised onion slices, a small amount of beef and some very over-fried potato chunks, some of which you couldn't get the fork through. Not massively priced at £26 but I'd never order it again. In fact we'd never go back to the restaurant again. When the waiter asked how the food was, I told him, politely but truthfully, and he just said OK and walked off! They did redeem themselves slightly at the end when another waiter came for us to pay the bill and asked what we were unhappy about. He took one of the beef's off the bill, which helped somewhat. Poor experience and we'd never go back, or recommend it to anyone.

    A really excellent start to our visit to Fowey. I particularly enjoyed the sardine starter dish. I like the take 3 ingredients approach to the small plates. The beef main course was also very tasty. The custard and berry dessert was lovely and definitely one for those - like me - who love tart berries

    Second time going to Fitzroy, feel it’s taking itself a bit too seriously and has lost some of the charm and atmosphere we previously loved. The food is really tasty but portions are small. If you’re spending £36 on your main course and then having to spend £5 each on a salad and potatoes you can’t help feel underwhelmed. Service is ok but should be more attentive if you’re spending £90-100 per head on 3 courses and drinks.

    An enthusiastic young crew who can really cook. Simple and relaxed approach to decor, front of house and food alike delivers bang for buck on taste and experience. And they’re as dog friendly as guest friendly. Not cheap - but didn’t feel at all conned. Top marks.

    The crew and the food were both excellent. The food prices were reasonable, though as is usual these days, wine prices were on the high side. The ambience was good for a small restaurant, but the smallness also made it a tad noisy.

    We arrived at 5.58pm for a booking at 6pm. The door was open so we entered. The staff were sat at a table socialising prior to service. We were asked to leave and stand outside until 6pm. This was incredible. It has never happened to me before at the 000’s of restaurants I have eaten in 68 countries around the world! They said they would fetch us at 6pm but they did not and we then found ourselves in a queue. After the inauspicious start we were given one menu between the two of us. We ordered a bottle of wine at a price of £33 and we were presented with an unmarked open bottle and told this was a decanted 750ml carafe. I had to ask for a wine cooler. The food was ordinary and vastly overpriced. The bill came to £150 for two courses and the wine. I ordered sirloin at £36,but was told how it would be cooked rather than being asked. My wife ordered the Turbot at £37. The sirloin arrived along with 150g of fat on the side. The only person I can only think of one person who would have eaten the fat, my brother, but he died very young of a heart attack! My wife’s Turbot was nice but was the size of a fish finger. All in all highly disappointing, overpriced, and rude service in the beginning. We won’t be returning. If you are going to charge London prices 30% higher than other quality restaurants in Fowey. You need to step up significantly.

    My wife ordered lamb. She first asked if it was fatty as it sometimes can be. Waiter said no. It is infused with a little fat which would add flavour and melt in your mouth. Lies. It was so fatty that there was alot more fat than meat. In fact she had to scrape through the fat to find meat. Absolute disgrace to charge £32 for this muck. Then had cheek to offer a free pudding as a good will………we just wanted to leave. They then took drinks off the bill. We still paid £95.50 for 2 people having taken off the service charge!! Pretentious and overpriced. I went there hungry looking forward to a nice meal and the pasta dish was paltry. I left still peckish and had snacks later. Don’t fall into this trap, there are lots of other better places to eat.

    Superb food and service. One point to mention - All the main courses only had the option of potatoes as a side option. A selection of seasonal vegetables would be better with the Hake and butter sauce. We will definitely be returning soon.

    The restaurant has a lovely ambience and casual decor in good taste. Very friendly and helpful staff happy to give information about the food in detail. The food was okay. I found the starter (mozzarella, chard and anchovy) was not to my taste, very salty and a strange combination of flavours. The skate was nice. The potatoes with the main course were also very salty (and I like salt!). Our waitress Holly was fabulous and went above and beyond to ensure our dining experience was a pleasure, a huge asset to this restaurant.

    We have eaten at Fitzroy on many occasions and have always been great fans, but this time we left feeling disappointed and underwhelmed. Maybe it was my poor choices from the menu, but I found the garlic scapes and lentils dish extremely salty, overpowering the delicate scapes. The new potatoes were soggy and also salty. My starter of Turbot was good, although the batter was a little heavy. We know Fitzroy is not a cheap dining experience, but normally we feel we have received value for money. The prices for starters and mains are more than average, which is okay if the food is above average. On a positive note, the service was excellent and the atmosphere great.
