Silks Bistro and Champagne Bar
Situated high on the headland of Newquay and tucked away inside the glamorous Atlantic Hotel is the AA-rosette-awarded Silks Bistro and Champagne Bar, one of Newquay’s best-kept secrets. You’ll feel more like you’re on the Mediterranean than the north Cornish coast as you dine amid giant palms and chandeliers, just moments away from the golden sands of Fistral Beach and the incredible swell of the Atlantic Ocean, and diners can enjoy this view whilst dining al fresco on the terraces. With a special emphasis on locally landed seafood and the wonderful seasonal produce the team sources from the surrounding area, the menu at Silks guarantees diners a real treat, whatever the season.
Firm favourites include the moules marinières, pan-fried hake with tempura crab, sirloin steak and lobster (24 hours notice required). There’s also the Bistro’s nationally acclaimed high tea available daily, as well as a tempting set lunch menu. Don’t miss out on the renowned Silks Sunday lunches – the locally reared joint of beef is carved how you like it at your table and served up with a generous helping of crispy yet melt-in-your-mouth roasties and locally grown seasonal vegetables, not to mention lashings of luscious gravy. The menu also boasts stunning desserts that are a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The Champagne Bar is home to a fi rst-class selection of perfectly chilled Champagne, ideal for a celebration. There’s also a range of freshly shaken classic cocktails, crafted by the experienced bar team.
