Beachside cafés and restaurants
Looking for delicious food and fantastic sea views? You’ve come to the right place – Cornwall has beachside cafes and restaurants by the bucket load. Spend the day café hopping and soaking up the sun, then treat yourself to somewhere special for dinner.
Al fresco feasts
Great food. Great views. Great company. The premise is simple, but it works. Based at Porthcurnick Beach the Roseland, the Hidden Hut’s feast nights are one of Cornwall’s hot tickets. Each feast night has a different theme – anything from lobster and chips to paella or Indian seafood curry. You bring your own plates, cutlery and drinks, and they provide the food. It’s laid-back dining at its finest.
Food festivals in Cornwall
Let’s face it, who doesn’t love food? Cornwall’s food festivals are the perfect place to indulge your passion. If seafood makes your heart sing, don’t miss the Falmouth Oyster Festival. We also recommend the St Ives Food and Drink Festival (which takes place right on Porthminster Beach), The Great Cornish Food Festival and Porthleven Food Festival. Mmm…
