I had chip butty (for brunch) and my wife had a small cid and cone of chips. (Take away) Chips were fantastic - firm but soft and melt in the mouth. Available in small portions too (cone or small chips) ideal for those with kids or small appetites. Had a quarter of my wifes small cod (and she must love... More

We had heard that this was the place to go for good fish and chips in Falmouth , so we decided against waiting for the Rick Steins chippy to open......bad mistake. The staff were pleasant price was ok and the fish was nice but the chips were awful. They'd obviously been sat there since the lunch rush finished and were... More

Can u start by saying that we visited quite some time ago when we were last in Cornwall but couldn't remember the name of the restaurant.. Wow the fish and chips were beyond amazing and by far the best fish I have ever had, my kids loved it here too and especially their food served in a quirky bucket with... More

Great chips great fish all freshly cooked to order. Couldn't fault it really except to say watch out for the gulls if you are enjoying your chips around the harbour area. Got dive bombed by one and swiftly retreated to the car - not nice!

Visited for first time on 24 July and sat in restaurant area overlooking the harbour - lovely view despite the wet weather. My partner had cod in gluten-free batter and I had grilled plaice -both with salad. Big pot of tea for two. Huge helpings of fish and chips and beautifully cooked and all very fresh. Service with a smile.... More

We came here for lunch for my husbands birthday having previously visited for my own in February. The food and service were both fantastic. The food was freshly cooked and well presented with generous portions and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful. I especially like the little piece of rock you get on the way out!!

Well worth a visit. A challenger to Rick Stein's place a few hundred yards away. Great service and very reasonable prices. The refurbished restaurant (with superb views from the window tables) is much improved. Highly recommended.
