    Such a friendly greeting. The restaurant is in a great spot and the interior is really cool. Super helpful staff, chatty and very smiley. Really efficient with drinks, lots of cocktails ordered and they came quickly (sometimes cocktails take forever). The food was presented really well. Great choices, everything looked local and freshly made. Would 100% recommend and go again if in the area (we were on a few days break taking our daughter and 4 of her friends)

    We really enjoyed our evening at Lazy Susan’s. Our table had a view overlooking Porth Beach which was the perfect setting for our pre-dinner Negroni cocktails. We ordered some small plates to share which were all delicious. Service was friendly and we will definitely be back again.

    A little too relaxed. While the location is lovely the staff are far too laid back. We booked a table for dinner and arrived a little early only to be told you do Know the kitchen isn't open yet having not been there before no we didn't. The menu was a mess and nothing really offered to our son. We had just finished our starters when the main course came out only for the waiter to ask where do you want this. As we had a small table covered with starter dishes and empty glasses we couldn't really answer his question. At which point he shoved everything to the middle and dumped our food infront of us 😮 and just to finish it off nicely I found a massive piece of crab shell in my dish which when I complained about it was told its ok we will speak to our supplier. Not really the response you want after nearly choking on shell. Wouldn't recommend at all just for the overall lack lustre not caring staff. Shame really it has a lot of potential maybe in the right hands

    Beautiful location with great view. The service was outstanding and the ambiance was very nice. The food was variable. The calamari was excellent, the paella ordinary and the prawns had a strange texture, the scallops were undercooked. Eton Mess for dessert was excellent.

    Such a lovely atmosphere and great hosting! On arrival we had cocktails outside looking over Porth beach- very relaxed environment. We then ate inside and the food was delicious. Great bar area but also lovely games selection to keep our 5 year old entertained. Will definitely be back!

    The meal started off good with a good amuse bouche apart from a odd red dipping paste which just tasted off. Next came the starters which was the high light of the meal with some fresh scallops served with a pork shoulder which was perfectly cooked and some apple puree, only thing i would say is that the portions of this starting was tiny looked more like a tasting menu than a starter. After this it was the mains which i went for the lobster , first of all the lobster was over cooked and black burn marks on it some how?? Even though it was poached?? The lobster also had a weird saffron taste to it which was totally unneeded, after this i tried the rice which was basically a ball of mush and was so over cooked it was a joke. Also included in this main you get a side order of the curry sauce with the veg which was totally unnecessary do to the curry not going with the lobster anyway. The curry just tasted way too spicy so you could even taste any seasoning the chef put in. Really disappointed with the main especially when you charge an extra £15 for this one and only have 4 mains on the menu they should all be perfect. Next was desert and all credit to the pastry chef the desert did not disappoint, i had the chocolate delice which was incredible but i will say i did try someone else crumble and it had no flavour to it due to it had be over cooked. To finish they bring little chocolate bites and to be honest i wish they kept them in the kitchen due to it taking the lovely flavour of the desert out of your mouth and replacing it sour taste of jelly in your mouth. I dined at this restaurant on 16/10/21 and i will say this i feel the chef is good but needs to reel it in with all the flavours on the main and just check more on what he is sending it because sometimes less is more and you may just say I'm a customer and don't know what I'm talking about however I used to work in a Michelin star kitchen in one of the best hotels in the world so do know a little bit.

    Very beautiful food indeed with great flavours. Loved the concept of smaller tasters mixed in with the courses. Oh, those crab “ice cream cones” and the whipped beetroot and feta, both divine. Top notch service provided by Becky. Andrew deserves to go far with food like this. We will certainly return.

    Amazing food!!! Good value and drinks reasonably priced. Took my partner there for our first date night after our daughter arrived last Dec - what a great place to start getting back out to eating out!!! Staff were very helpful and friendly - attentive but not suffocating. Will definitely return! Glad we got in without too much fuss before the secret gets out!

    Amazing food and big gaps between courses. Also were sat in a draft eventually solved by closing a skylight. So near to being lovely but, at this price, expected better.

    For a special treat highly recommended. Some may think the choices limited but I thought the choices were very good. The food was fantastic and thankfully enough time left between courses to fully digest and appreciate what you had just eaten. It is in a stunning location overlooking the bay and beach at Porth. Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed. If you want huge portions and lots of chips forget it, this is not the place for you!

    Our meal was underwhelming and we wonder if the main man wasn’t in! This is the second time in a couple of months we had eaten here and the first occasion was great. This time we noticed: The menu choice was more limited. The courses themselves seemed mean and small. I had the beef as the main course and the gravy was eye wateringly salty. A choice of 2 sweets was poor. Sorry but if this restaurant is going to complete with the big boys it’s going to have to up its game. Regards Chris B

    Great location, lovely view and nice surroundings with friendly efficient service! The food was great and the main courses being the stand out dishes here! The beef and plaice we had were both so good with depth of flavour and amazing sauce cookery. A master chef for sure! We really enjoyed it and would recommend. The hotel looks nice too so may well be back Thank you

    Absolutely Fabulous. We were delighted to support a former Forces personnel with his new venture and wish him every success. The evening set menu was divine in every respect accompanied by delightful serving staff, Kirsty and Becky. Stunning setting. A credit to all. If I had to choose a last meal ever I would wish Andrew Durham to cook it! Congratulations on having the courage to set up a fantastic new venture in such difficult times.

    The food and atmosphere was lovely but the menu is very restrictive. We hadn’t appreciated that there would only be a limited set menu to choose from which meant we had very little choice and had to order more food than we really wanted. Nice experience and staff were friendly but it pays to be aware of the menu before booking.

    When we arrived the place was nearly empty due to last minute cancellations. We also realised the menu wasn’t appropriate for our teenage son but we were lucky that as it was quiet our waitress asked if the chef could make something off menu which he did. Our waitresses were great - very knowledgable on what was being served coupled with a stunning view. The food was faultless and very tasty - more expensive than our other meals but it was a real treat and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Son’s quote was the best steak he has ever eaten. Thanks again and good luck for the summer season ahead of you.
