The boat she'd give you the impression it's near the water but it's not, the staff seemed inexperienced but still friendly and tried. The food we had was just average and we had to wait too long for our food.

The ideal place to celebrate with a good selection of local produce. It is a restaurant and not a cheap eatery and is possibly for the more discerning traveller

I didnt notice a children's menu. In the evening I would say not suitable as it has quite a grown up feeling and quite small. If in any doubt contact the restaurant as they were very helpful when I rang up.

We offer fresh local food served at the heart of Perranporth beachfront. Our unique open plan restaurant allows you to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner while over looking Perranporth beach. Whether it's a quick stop before wandering round the shops or a relaxing dinner, the Pavilion Boatshed Restaurant is the perfect space to sit and watch the world go by. We take inspiration from our stunning surroundings and work closely with nearby producers to use a selection of Cornish seafood, freshly grown vegetables and locally bred meat as our main ingredients to create the very best Cornish cuisine. All this paired with a variety of drinks ranging from Cornish ales to a fine selection of champagne.
