Roovrays Restaurant

Roovrays comes highly recommended...And a Charming and ambient evening awaits you...Tastefully decorated with a French influence due to the French Chef and owner. Great value is offered with the Early Bird menu from 6pm till 6.45pm with 2 courses being £15 and 3 courses only £18. The a la Carte menu starts from 7pm and offers many delights from the freshest of ingredients and local produce. The art of having a relaxed and unhurried evening meal is still very much the main focus here at Roovrays and is done very intentionally by the owners who wish for their guests to have an evening experience enjoying conversation,the live pianist (check on booking when playing),fine wines while your food is unhurriedly cooked to perfection by the owner himself; it won't be a quick affair, just as it should be. Booking is very advisable to save disappointment especially pianist nights as tables go fast.

Starters of Crab Bisque & Chefs special fish soup were very tasty. The grilled tuna steak on Mediterranean salad with boiled potatoes was disappointing. The tuna was good but not the salad leaves with chunks of pepper, green beans & flavourless tomatoes. The Spinach & Ricotta tortellini in a creamy sauce with asparagus & mushrooms was ok. Price for two courses per person was £21 which was reasonable. Unfortunately many of the main courses had a supplement up to £10.
The ambience didn't encourage lingering, with jazz music played beyond background level. Uncomfortable with loud personal discussion ongoing between waitresses. Not the place for a leisurely romantic meal. Only Gordon's Gin available, no choice.

Salamander Restaurant

Reviewed By CharlieCB - Swindon

We visited on New Years Day for an early dinner and had a lovely meal with great fish, vegetables that were perfectly cooked and really nice puddings. The bottle of Italian red was good and reasonably priced.
Service was very good and although quiet when we arrived the restaurant became busier as our meal progressed.
Definitely worth another visit.

Sharksfin Bar & Restaurant

We're The Sharksfin in Mevagissey. Fresh seafood, quality St. Austell ales and friendly customer service. Come down and enjoy the view!

Reviewed By CharlieCB - Swindon

We visited for lunch and although the food was good, we felt it was not so good as previously. We started with aubergine chips and mackerel and tuna dip, followed by chicken skewers and rice for my wife and sea bass and scallops with couscous for me. It is possible that we just did not choose so well as previously.
Service was good.

Trevalsa Court

Reviewed By Halfahorse - Carnforth

We did not know what to expect here, although it looked nice on its website. The view from the room was perfect. Although on the small side the room was very comfortable and luxuriously appointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The Coastal Path can be accessed from the hotel's grounds. The big surprise was the food. We had tasting menus both nights [Fridays and Saturdays at the moment]. I can honestly say that it equalled anywhere I have ever eaten and surpassed most, including some Michelin starred restaurants. Not cheap, but worth every penny.

Polgooth Inn

Award winning cosy Cornish pub situated in a beautiful valley near St Austell and the Eden Project serving great food, wine,ale, and coffee. Enjoy cosy fires in the winter months and a great pub garden in the summer

Reviewed By 01Clive

Having driven round St Austell, found nowhere to eat! Took a slight detour home to our hols cottage in Mevagissey and fell onto the Polgooth Inn - and at 1800 on Tuesday before the season begins the car park was full-must be a good sign, so we chanced it.
And what a find! Lovely welcoming inn, dog friendly and cracking food. The staff were lovely, the food - wow; the boss says ‘best ribs ever’ and my ‘brisket burnt ends’ were fantastic. And the beer, the St Austells range (including HSD lovely!!).
Can’t recommend enough!!
(Might even do a cheeky return visit before we venture back north)

The Haven Takeaway

Reviewed By Ian F - Sheffield, United Kingdom

Chose the healthy option for lunch and had chips rather than sandwiches, Cornish pasties etc. Chips cooked to order and were worth the wait as they were lovely. Downside was the deep fried mars bar my son bought for himself. Whilst I am sure it was well done I tried it and they are wrong.

Reviewed By Paul A - Southampton, United Kingdom

A lovely setting for very good fish and chips, friendly staff, good beer. Lovely fresh fish in a crispy light beer batter with very nice chips and my wife said the tartar sauce was the best. She doesn't have fish and chips often and has to be in the mood so that's a compliment. Wouldn't hesitate to go back if in Mevy.

The Fishermen's Chippy

Reviewed By TravelWriter013 - Londoner in SW

We were out of season and happened upon this Chish and Fip place accidentally having givenup trying to find haddock for my husband and finding somewhere that doesn't fry in dripping (eugh). Well this place not only had haddock they fry in vegetable oil which means as a veggie i can eat the chips and things. The helpful lads even pointed out that they do use tongs across the range, how thoughtful. AND they had PEA FRITTERS, so I managed to have veggie meal - hooray. The fish portions are HUGE, don't order a large fish unless you are sharing it, or have the appetite of Posiedon. Freshly cooked and lovely but out of season it's open Fridays and Sundays (I think) for the winter, fair enough and well worth waiting for. Well done lads, a great fishless supper for me and a happy haddocked husband.
