Welcome to Amélies

Gaze out through the glass-fronted restaurant doors at boats bobbing in Porthleven harbour, or enjoy a panoramic view from the terrace.

Dine on lobster plucked fresh from the waves, or tuck into one of our award-winning Sunday roasts. Soak in a special atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else in our award-winning restaurant located at the heart of Porthleven.

Welcome to our little place in ‘Portheaven.’

Our Food

Perched on the harbour in Porthleven, our ethos naturally incorporates fish caught yards from our door, which is seasonal and sustainable.  Our menu is inspired by the sunshine of the Mediterranean, mixed with the beauty of the Cornish coast.

For the pescitarians, our fish is simple, packed full of flavour, and quite often cooked in our wood-fired oven, occasionally when the sunshine and smell of the water is too much to bear -  on our outside BBQ!  For the carnivores there are Sunday roasts for which we are famed, cooked over night in the wood-fired oven, or burgers that are anything but just a burger and packed full of flavour.  

There are no rules with our menu, have smaller dishes to share, have one of our seafood planks, with a few tapas dishes dotted around the table.  Take your time, there’s no rush … enjoy the view.


Amélies also offers small and larger scale weddings from 20-85 people. From the civil ceremony to your wedding breakfast we can organise, oversee, and help you plan your perfect and totally bespoke day.
