We ate at the Idle Rocks for a late valentines night with my wife and I. Generally we enjoyed the food and the waiting staff tried hard. But our evening was spoiled by rudeness from one of the waitresses who having asked for bread without any response interrupted us asking a second waiter five minutes later and subsequently made a sarcastic comment when clearing plates. We eat out a lot and I have never seen a member of front of house staff with such a bad attitude.
The most beautifully presented, tantalising, fine cuisine, set in a relaxing waterfront location .... with spectacular views. We are never disappointed. Thank you to the team.
Outstanding food, service, views & location. What more can I say?
The food was of an exceptional quality, the service and their knowledge was so in depth and made to feel at ease throughout the whole night. Guy and his kitchen are smashing it here, the front of house staff are just as incredible, Will be back soon guys thanks!x
My favourite restaurant. Can’t fault it.
Guy & his team are superb. Never fail to be impressed.
Just the perfect evening from the minute we arrived, attentive staff, great setting, fabulous food, we couldn't have wanted for more.
Excellent dinner. Started with a couple of cocktails served in the lounge which had a lovely ambience to it. We chose the Goats Cheese Ravioli and the Pork Belly to start and we both had the curried cod for mains - all fabulous ! Service and the dining area was excellent . Highly recommended.
Attentive service but star of the show was the delicious food. Top quality gourmet food at its best. Can't wait to return.
Wonderful meal at the Idle Rocks, staff friendly and efficient, food was amazing and the decor was just lovely. Fantastic views of the harbour... superb evening, can't wait to come back!!
Our waiter did not know how to make an appropriate spritz. On bringing an aperol & soda he consulted a colleague who brought an aperol spritz but it was far too water, mainly due to the abundance of ice. We thought the wine was over-priced.
Excellent as usual. Food service and wine exceptional with an amazing view
The idle rocks restaurant area has been revamped since our last visit and is now a stunning piece of interior design with food and service to match. Relaxed and welcoming and the Dyson hand washer/driers in the gents are the icing on the cake!
Excellent Sunday lunch. Quality of the food and wine was extremely good even down to the olives and fresh warm bread served prior to the meal Great views and friendly staff. Would definitely return
excellent food and service. Ideal place to look at the sea and boats when the weather Is good or not so good
Another very enjoyable evening, great food, ambience and service.
Wonderful restaurant with stunning views, attentive staff and fabulous food. Exceeded our expectations and was the highlight of our trip. You can't get better than sitting at a table outside on the veranda watching the sun setting over St Mawes harbour. We would thoroughly recommend it for a special night out.
We were looking for somewhere special for an end of holiday treat with friends ( but not children!)! And boy did we find it !! The service was utterly outstanding but at the same time not at all intrusive. They knew the dishes they were offering inside and out and were extremely friendly and courteous in their delivery without being overly friendly. The food was simply divine and full of the mist delicious flavours .... perhaps a bit on the small side if I had any criticism at all. Crab tortellini was amazing ... would have loved it as a main course! And I loved the fact they had a cheese menu too! The wine was fabulous- we treated ourselves to a bottle of camel valley brut Pinot noir .... out of this world and then enjoyed 2 bottles of picpol with our meal ... one of the best I've ever tasted . Just perfect 👌! Thank you idle rocks ... you certainly do rock ❤️
Fantastic food of a standard and level of refinery I haven't experienced before in cornwall. The front of house have hospitality down to a fine art!
Despite a very wet day it was a joy to have such a wonderful lunch at The Idle Rocks.
The staff were excellent and very efficient without being stuffy.
The food and wine were divine.
Excellent food the service was impeccable
Highly recommend to anyone who ventures to St.Mawes, beautiful place
