Fodor's Expert Review Porthminster Café
Unbeatable for its location alone—on the broad, golden sands of Porthminster Beach—this sleek, modern eatery prepares imaginative breakfasts, lunches, teas, and evening meals that you can savor while you take in the marvelous vista across the bay. The accent is on Mediterranean and Asian flavors, and typical choices include pan-roasted halibut fillet with crispy ham, monkfish curry, and roasted duck breast with celeriac. The sister Porthgwidden Beach Café, in the Downalong neighborhood, has a smaller and cheaper menu that's equally strong on seafood.
