    The food is beautifully executed, the bread is light as air and the fish dishes were all spectacular - especially the tempura monkfish. The manager there ( Portuguese chap) was an absolute delight and made both visits. the team were well managed and the service efficient Only point is that when Emily on shift, later in service It would have been nice to see Emily Scott out talking to customers just for 5 minutes Its a limited menu ( 3 each course) - but then it is delivered very well and the location is just magical. Don't book the glass area seating overlooking front (on entrance side) as sun streams in

    You will struggle to find a restaurant with a better view! Overlooking the surf of Watergate Bay this was a fantastic dining experience. A great choice of seafood is on offer, cooked to perfection by a hard working team who can be viewed toiling away in the dining area. Attentive service tips it off - not cheap but not outrageously expensive either!

    The view is fantastic overlooking the beach at sunset. Eyewateringly beautiful. The restaurant is a delight. The food was stunning. This place will be receive many awards and rightfully so. Book it early there is a waiting list. It is the hottest table in the area. Saw a genuine 100% Hollywood A lister having dinner there tonight.

    This was one of those truly unforgettable meals, I can’t stop thinking about it! We had the most amazing turbot with black truffles and chicken sauce, which is frankly the dish of my dreams, as well as lobster, the most perfect potatoes and salad. Starters were scallop sashimi and tempura mussels - heaven. And all very reasonably priced considering the excellent quality. I’ve also been trying to recreate the cocktail served at the G7 summit only days before, to no avail! Absolutely amazing meal, will be returning when next in Cornwall

    Good meal, very well be plated, excellent service, food was very well cooked but tbh we were not very impressed with fish and Truffles as a combination….Truffles were a bit too strong a flavour….however still a lovely evening for my birthday, wonderful outlook, excellent wine…we will revisit on our next vacation…minus said Truffles!

An amazing setting and the ethos of simple cooking making the most of fabulous ingredients shone through. So tasty and a lovely setting with friendly and happy staff made the whole experience so enjoyable. We will be back for sure!

    Overall we had a very good experience. Food was lovely as always. However, the mackerel was too oily for our liking and lacked a bit of acidity. Service was not on top of things compared to last year. Just everything not quite as inspired as last year (we will try it again in the summer).

    First time in Emily Scott’s and overall was a really enjoyable lunch. Amazing full height glazing views of Watergate bay from the entire restaurant, lovely interior finishes ,very cool and contemporary ,our food choices were excellent, masala mussels, cod, artichoke and CornishJack risotto, and two very good wines. The personal care and attention was obvious with Emily present in person and the staff very attentive. Our only constructive comment would be the menu with only three main course choices was too limited and as the menu is not on the website you may find an issue on the day you visit. Just two more diverse choices would probably be sufficient to ensure all tastes are catered for .

    Fantastic views, relaxed feel - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The lobster was amazing although very expensive. Service was good, wines were affordable. Menu great, but only 3 choices to choose from for each course and if you enjoy fish, then you are fine. Overall, this is a great place to dine and will definitely be returning.

    We had such a lovely afternoon sitting overlooking the beautiful watergate Bay beach. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and a very pleasant part of our experience. We enjoyed a bottle of the provence rose wine that was beautiful and completemented our fish dishes perfectly. The food was stunning and very simply presented. Very well cooked and fresh food. Highly recommended visiting if you can get booked in!!

The setting overlooking the beach is beautiful and the service was excellent with very friendly staff. Our 5 and 2 year old also enjoyed their food and they can be hard to please! Highly recommend and we will definitely come back.

    The setting of the restaurant is out of this world - right on the beach with the Atlantic rollers coming in, the sun setting directly in front of you and all evening we were entertained by the attempts of the surf boarders to ride the waves. On by the way, the service was brilliant and the foot sublime. A great evening!!
