The restaurant at Porth Beach Hotel serves a smorgasbord of seaside favourites, small plates & desserts served up by head chef/owner Anj, who aims to please and has spent the winter honing her skills at Leiths School of Cookery and Wine in London.

Produce is local when good! - think ale-battered catch of the day, steaks @ Wagyu burgers, moules marinieres and a signature seafood sharing feast brimming with seaside delicacies and perfectly matched with a chilled bottle of picpoul. New for 2024 a selection of sicilian inspired stone-baked pizzas are a welcome addition to Anjs repetoire. (we do not offer childrens menus and operate a no-dogs policy)

Our bright and airy restaurant offers a relaxed dining space with floor to ceiling glass giving way to stunning views of Porth Beach. Why not enjoy pre-dinner cocktails on our sea-view heated outdoor terrace. Our fully-stocked bar has an extensive wine list, classic cocktails, plenty of local gins, ale, cider &

    This is truly a hidden gem. Great reviews for food (including the crab linguine) are on point. Was empty, however, which is a shame. They should have a full house.

    Beautiful and quaint restaurant with great views! Friendly staff and great food. Outside deck has an L shaped sofa that sits 4 and table seating for 12 with unobstructed views of Long Cove. On top of everything, you can walk across the street and follow a path to an island cliff and watch the sunlight. We wanted dessert, but sunset was approaching. Our waitress insisted we watch the sunset then come back for dessert. Highly recommended! Thank you Lazy Susan’s!

    Having recommended the restaurant to several people after reading reviews and knowing the location, this was my first time actually there. No disappointment whatsoever as the views - although weather was dire initially - were special and the food delicious and so fresh. I will continue to recommend!

    We were staying at the Porth Beach Hotel and decided to eat at Lazy Susan’s Glad we did as the prices are in line with what you would pay anywhere but the food is excellent Whilst a limited menu, not a bad thing, as everything we chose was excellent quality and well presented. We ate at the restaurant two out of three nights and even had their Fish and Chips which without exaggeration were the best I can ever remember having. Would highly recommend if staying in the area or at the hotel which is also excellent.

    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)

    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.
