Find this good neighbourhood restaurant in one of Looe's oldest buildings - reputed to be a former smuggler's haunt.
A brasserie-type menu is offered with bold flavours coming from carefully-sourced ingredients too the more. Local seafood figures prominently - having its own menu.
Starters such as 'Seafood Chowder'; 'Moules Mariniere' and 'Aubergine Parmigiana (with fresh spinach and tomato and basil sauce) set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Corn-fed Chicken with Chorizo, Red Onion and Butter Bean Soup'; 'Escalope of free-range Veal with Serrano Ham, Buffalo Mozzarella and a Masala Sauce' or 'Fillet of Monkfish with a Merlot and Wild Mushroom Sauce and Jasmine Rice'.
Traditional desserts are listed on a blackboard; and Cornish cheeses are also on offer.
Their set lunch is particularly good value, and the menu has an extensive choice.
