SquareMeal Review of The View

Here is the seaside dream fulfilled. A whitewashed converted cafe sits high above Whitsand Bay with knock-out panoramic views for miles. By night the Eddystone Lighthouse twinkles far out at sea. The decor is clean & elegant. And the seafood is superb, with scallops, mussels, turbot, halibut & langoustines coming as fresh as you like from local fishing boats out of Looe. Matthew Corner has distilled his West Country haute cuisine experience at Whitechapel Manor & the Well House into something deceptively simple & uncluttered. He's a dab hand all round, from braised oxtail to chocolate pithivier & homemade ice creams, but fish is the real standout. If they're on, order skate wings with crisp Bayonne ham on crushed potato or the best turbot with salsify & vermouth beurre blanc you'll taste in England. Prices are between very reasonable & incredibly reasonable. Note: this restaurant closes during the first two weeks of November.

This is a hidden gem on the south east cornwall coast. A simple room with amazing views out over whitsand bay I was surprised it was not busier, I managed to book a table the night before with no problems. The food was delicious with complimentary fresh bread and olives brought to the table straight away. I had scallops to start and they were plump and beautifully cooked. For the main course I had bream which was served with white crab and pickled ginger – the flavours worked really well. Vegetables and potatoes were served on the side, my only slight quibble being the presence of pak choi which I find tasteless and bland – I would have liked more british seasonal veg. However the service was excellent, attentive without being intrusive. With another main course and 2 glasses of wine the total bill came to £56 for 2 which I thought was excellent value for such lovely,fresh, well cooked food and I believe all locally sourced. I will defintely return next time I am in the area!
