We visited here for fish and chips to take away and were very impressed. Clean, great service, value for money and great food. The best chips and curry sauce I have had for a long time. My husband had a piece of cod and said it was great tasting and cooked to perfection. Great service too. Definitely worth a visit... More

Was disappointed with the fish and chips . The chips weren't that well cooked and the fish we had was mostly batter. Although the batter was light and fairly good I had one mouthful of thick fish the rest was almost wafer thin . Was codling not cod . Shame because the view and surroundings were very good.

My scout group decided to make use of the takeaway part of the restaurant to provide the evening meal for nearly 30 kids and 6 adults. The food was still hot on arrival but we discovered that some of our order was missing meaning that 3 adults had to wait whilst the remnants of the order was collected.

We came upon this restaurant whilst looking for a fish & chip meal after an afternoon touring the local area. The restaurant looked looked clean and inviting and upon entering the layout and decoration assured us that this would be a good place to eat. The two of us chose the Haddock & Chips with no extras, when the food... More

Visited this restaurant on our Honeymoon holiday to Falmouth and what a gem. This restaurant has perfectly cooked tasty fish with crispy batter and excellent chips. Visited once then had to go back for the 'colossal Colin ' experience which was 3 pieces of crispy cod and chips on a fabulous fish shaped plate! This is not to be missed... More

You've got to sample this plaice ! The Hake is to die for and the chips .... they are award winning melt in the mouth. It prides itself as the only MSC recognised fish and chip place in Falmouth and possibly Cornwall.
