The food was consistently good (went twice) and well presented. The "Specials" changed regularly to provide plenty of variety. The staff were friendly, efficient and unobtrusive. A relaxing environment.

This is my favourite haunt in penzance.I have enjoyed both lunch and dinner.The basic menu is a pleasure of freshly prepared delights and ideal for lunch with the girls.I must say that when I dined in the evening I was pleasently surprised that the standard was raised again and the venison was to die for.Its so lovely to see local fish and produce used and prepared to unfussy tastiness !Highly recommended.Love to sit having coffee and tiny delicious doughnuts watching the world go by...a real treat.
