What a lovely place, this is the 3rd time we have been but the last 2 were for coffee only, this time we had lunch, what a great choice! Mrs had a crab salad and I had 6 oysters (just like eating a mouthful of fresh seaside! Just gorgeous) and followed these up with a lobster salad. Both the crab... More

Whenever we are in Port Issac we go for lunch at this cafe, really good fresh seafood on offer. I love the oysters and dressed crab, service is good and very fair prices. Really recommend a visit

We made a special request by email as we were keen to have spider crab if any available and received an immediate reply from Calum to say they would do their best but dependent upon the catch - which we perfectly understood. So pleased that when we arrived 2 spider crabs there for us but told that we needn't feel... More

Particularly loved seeing the fishermen delivering direct from their boats ... couldn't be much more "fresh from the sea". Therefore quality of the sea food was excellent. Unfortunately though the delivery was halfway through our meal - when we arrived they were short of a lot of things as the boats hadn't been out on previous days! But to be... More

Having walked around Port Isaaac looking for somewhere for lunch we stumbled across this place. We had the most delicious crab sandwich complimented with a chilled glass of white wine. Just thinking about it makes me want to experience it all over again. Tracy was very friendly & welcoming. If we're in the area again we would definitely return. Thank... More

Serving up a small selection of fresh caught & picked lobster & crab, sandwiches, rolls & salads. We visited on a sunny & warm March day so sat outside in the sheltered courtyard. Fresh lobster bisque was the special but the lobster sandwiches enjoyed with a glass of wine got top marks.

Closed out of season. This location offers excellent take-away crab sandwiches, made as you wait, nice artisan bread and includes sald, delicious. I always attempt to visit on the day of departure and eat the sandwich for lunch the following day to remind me of Port Isaac.

What a place. Ordered a crab sandwich & a lobster sandwich - so fresh and tasty. Lovely little restaurant and the ladies behind the counter are really friendly. Once the lobster season begins get there early lunchtime as they ran out and sooooo many people wanted the lobster. A beautiful light lunch. One of my favourite meals in Cornwall -... More

I am so glad that we made the effort to go to Port Isaac. My wife did some research before we went and we decided to eat at Fresh from the Sea. The food was incredible. I recommend the lobster sandwich which was amazing. Thank you so much for such lovely food.
