For an intimate dining experience that blends a taste of Italy with coastal cuisine, Papa Nino’s is well worth a visit. It’s a lively little restaurant and tends to be popular, so booking is highly recommended. It is an old school Italian in the best sense of the word with a traditional range of dishes. Worth a note, they only accept cash.
Must Try: Lobster Thermidor

The restaurant is in one of the oldest buildings in Looe, still largely preserved in its original form, the cellar and loft are known to date back at least 450 years. Reputed to be a former haunt for smugglers and sea faring men of the 16th Century, it was then known locally as “The Run” probably due to it’s time honoured association with smuggling which was rife along the Cornish coast. The Old Sail Loft is one of the top Restaurants in Looe. Open Evenings and for lunches they specialise in steaks and fresh local fish straight from the boats. Offering a`la carte and bistro. The restaurant is on the quay side overlooking the harbour, just see the menu.
Must try: Fish pie, the very finest prime Looe fish and shellfish in a delicious creamy sauce topped with a buttery mash served with homemade granary bread

Monies raised went in aid of the RNLI and swimmers were rewarded with hot drinks and a warm welcome in the RNLI HQ on the Quay. Why not try it yourself this year?
