Fish house fistral beach

A new restaurant for Newquay on Fistral beach, Paul the owner/chef who previously worked alongside rick stein for 14 years has now brought his culinary skills to our  doorstep, have to say the food is absolutely excellent as was the atmosphere, service & prices, only 11 tables so definitely pre book this one, I think the fish house could be 1 of the best restaurants in Newquay
