Amazing food & service. It’s my number one go to for dinner. It’s always such an amazing experience, good & service
When I booked, I asked for table 11 and this is what I had. This does not always happen with bookings restaurants. Creates a good impression and will return.
Very pleased with friendly helpful service. Lovely choice on the menu.
Everything about our dining experience was top rate. The food was delicious and we were made to feel really welcome.
The only down side was the lack of parking so we had to park off site and walk to the restaurant.
Would definitely recommend.
A fabulous evening in a beautiful location. What a great job you are doing - well done and see you again! Thank you!
Great food in a lovely setting. Pudding was beautiful.
Delicious food served by delightful, helpful staff. Thank you
I went here last week with my daughter for lunch,It was so nice I took my friend on Friday. The staff are very friendly, the food was delicious & the place is spotless. I will be returning again very soon.
So grateful to have this as our "local". Had a fantastic breakfast. Try the granola served with coconut yoghurt, strawberries and micro herbs and flowers. Wonderful!
Birthday meal -Gorgeous place , meal - attentive staff .. lovely experience
We arrived for lunch and one of our party was feeling ill due to too much sun and the staff there were very helpful giving us cold compresses and even an ice lolly to help her cool down. The food was fantastic and very reasonably priced and everyone really enjoyed all the courses. I had the spicy dough balls, which were particularly spicy and followed this with the crab linguine which was beautifully presented and prepared and was delicate in flavour. A few of the others has pizzas which were freshly cooked with fresh ingredients. The only downside was their size, but we were allowed to take these away. The service was attentive, efficient and very engaging. We will definitely be returning when we return to Cornwall. A lovely experience.
Went with my family for a special birthday lunch. The choice of menu was lovely and everything we chose delicious and beautifully presented. All the staff were really friendly and helpful making it a lovely occasion.
It is one of our absolute favourite restaurants. The food is amazing and it is such a wonderful atmosphere. Great food without fuss. We took some friends who are visiting with us and they were so complimentary also!
Lovely little place with excellent food! Staff were also very helpful and very little wait for food.
Been here twice in two days! Lovely food and service.
Hugely welcoming, great service. Food was generally really pleasant without being mind blowing.
Fantastic restaurant! The booking system allowed us to book either inside or outside which was great.
The staff were very friendly, professional with great service and attention to detail. The ambiance outside was great with the sound of music and felt very comfortable. The food was fantastic and would definitely recommend the pizzas!
We'll be back! Thank you

I had the gluten free blt and it was one of the nicest gluten free rolls I have had.
We had one evening meal & two breakfasts during our weeks holiday, both were scrumptious and good value, the bistro itself is a lovely cosy venue, and the staff all extremely friendly & attentive, can’t wait to return. Oh, and the take away pizzas are magnificent.
Excellent food and good service. The outside covered area was warm and comfy. We will be back

Great food and service, probably the nicest food I’ve eaten in Cornwall:)
Good food. Lovely day. Outside cover and seating arrangements good. Waiting staff skilled at not hearing you but friendly and helpful.
Table outside directly overlooking roadside car park where a few guests chose to stand and smoke sadly… otherwise a lovely meal and evening out, food excellent, staff great and very friendly, children welcomed. Would go again for sure
Lovely place to go for lunch, food was excellent and definitely value for the money.
Stopped for lunch during our weeks holiday and immediately rebooked for later in the week. Greatbfood, reasonably priced, wonderful service. A little noisy due to young children objecting to... Who knows, but wasn't a problem for us
We booked an outside table for lunch to celebrate our daughters birthday following a reccomendation. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was great.
Food fresh and full of taste.
Staff attentive and helpful.
Good selection for vegetarians.
Very efficient and friendly service, the crab linguini was particularly good. Excellent and excellent service in welcoming surroundings.
