Come to Newquay restaurants for a taste of the sea
Fresh seafood is a part of everyday life on the Cornish coast, and this is reflected in the daily specials you'll see marked up on the chalkboards of many Newquay restaurants. The harbour still maintains its own busy fishing fleet, as does nearby St Ives, and you can count on the town's chefs to make the most of this plenty. Signature dishes in Newquay restaurants include local crab baked in the shell or whole crab claws with a side of chips, pan-seared pollock and lobster grilled in garlic butter. And you can't visit Newquay without sampling a portion of moules mariniere, Cornish oysters in a creamy white wine sauce. Meanwhile beachside diners conjure up seafood sandwiches and burgers for quick refuelling between dips in the ocean, as well as a range of hearty pre-surf breakfasts.
