Being a regular visitor to Falmouth, I’ve had a takeaway from Harbour Lights on several occasions and found the food good. My only negative comment would have been that opening times seem somewhat variable and closing time is two or three hours earlier than what would be expected of a takeaway fish and chip shop in most other parts of...

I love a good Fish & Chip dinner, and the Harbour Light Restaurant certainly produced a first class meal. The service was very attentive and the staff could not do enough for you, the food was excellent, in both the size of portions, very well cooked and very tasty. This is what a seaside Fish & Chip restaurant should be... More

I have been a regular customer here for years. Friendly staff and quality food. Never had the need to complain even once. Great for takeaway or eating in and taking in the view.

Went here for lunch with our 2 kids. Good value children's menu, and rest of menu fairly priced. Liked the fact you could choose from 3 portion sizes. Food was not greasy at all and service was great. Won't bother with Rick Steins again as this place was great. Definitely going back.

A perfect Easter Sunday evening meal at Harbour Lights. I'd last been there a couple of years earlier and found it to be great then, and was not disappointed this time. If fish and chips is your thing then you can't go wrong here. Quick and efficient service, a great view over the harbour while you wait for the food... More
