F.A.Q.s

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we are situated in a private car park with free parking for guests for up to 3 hours.
Dogs are very welcome!
Children are very welcome - we have a couple of specific kids tapas dishes but we find that most children enjoy the tapas experience and sharing dishes from our main menu with their parents
We don't have a specific gluten free menu but many of our dishes are naturally gluten free and, if you speak to our staff, we can tailor a lot of dishes to your requirements as our food is cooked fresh to order.
We do indeed! Whilst we specialise in fish, we know that not everyone likes it and make sure that all other tastes are catered for.
We absolutely do! You'll find some great vegetarian dishes on our menu and these can all be adapted for vegans too.
We will hold your booking for you for 15 minutes after the time you are due to arrive. If you're going to be longer than this you can modify your booking by going back to the bookings portal or you can call us to re-schedule if possible
Just follow the link in your confirmation email
We do have both wheelchair access and an accessible toilet but please contact us directly by calling 01637 874152 or emailing [email protected] to make your reservation and we can make sure that we book you onto a suitable table
We have a limited number of highchairs available - if you need one please make sure that you let us know by selecting the option on the bookings page
We absolutely do and we have a dedicated area that can seat up to 38 people. It's perfect for celebrations, meetings or business functions with options to create a set menu or buffet if you like. Contact us directly on 01637 874152 or at [email protected] to discuss your requirements
Absolutely! Let us know the occasion and we can decorate your table and make arrangements for cakes, bubbly or whatever you might like!
Tapa (or Tapas for plural) means small plate in Spanish. The actual concept of Tapa varies greatly depending on where you are and can be anything from a little taster with a drink or a mix and match style meal to share with friends. At The Fish Bar you can treat our Tapas exactly how you want! Whether you fancy a little bite with a bottle of wine, a table full of mixed Tapas to share with friends, making a meal out of 2 or 3 dishes or ordering a dish or two at a time and see how it goes!
As a guideline we find about 2-3 dishes per person works well. But this obviously depends on your own appetite, how much you've eaten through the rest of the day and which dishes you order - some are much more filling than others! Why not do rolling tapas and just order a couple of dishes at a time until you're full!

Brilliant restaurant in Newquay. All the food was of high quality. We did notice when ordering a couple of our fav dishes again that the serving sizes were slightly larger, so I’m not sure how consistent sizes are. The sesame chicken, lobster and monk were fabulous. The biggest mussels I’ve seen, the first I’ve tried and they were great. Defo needed more bread for soaking up the sauces. BRILLIANT service, honestly they made our night. Very chill, unfortunately we had a large party which made it louder than we’d have liked but the staff were very attentive to us despite the large numbers of guests. Would return most definitely. Overall I think for the money, a very enjoyable experience to try different sea food.

Maz M.
what a lovely restaurant. I really appreciate the wonderful staff. they were kind, nice, helpful and not at all pushy. my only suggestion is that your menu lack healthy food and it is all fried which makes food unhealthy. really my only choice, was just one. that one option was a grilled one and it was absolutely delicious. Why not one more healthy choice like a haddock and clam chowder or something like that? People are getting health conscious and you need to review your menu to give more healthy options. but I really had a great time and hopefully see you in my next trip!

The Fish Bar gave us a fabulous experience. The staff were as attentive as we wanted them to be - neither pestering us, nor ignoring us. The light system worked really well. The food was wonderful - tasty and lots of variety. Also,fairly quick food service - giving us time to enjoy a glass of wine. It was a birthday celebration and we'll worth the visit. I can totally recommend a visit - I guarantee it won't be a 'one off. Pat

Good service from the beginning. We arrived 15 minutes before opening time but the owner/manager still provided us with drinks even though he was busy. The buzzer on tables are great idea if only we remembered to use it! Luckily the staff are switched on to know this and no buzzer needed for us! Food was great. We will be back.
