Best fish and chios

I love fish and chips when by the sea and this did not disappoint! We had fish, chips, mushy peas, bread and butter and unlimited tea. They were amazing. The cafe was lovely and the staff friendly. The view over the sea is lovely too. Will definitely be back here next time I visit falmouth.

Had dinner here in the restaurant, bypassing the (very crowded) takeaway area in front. Situated right on the harbor, this is a wonderful fish and chip restaurant! We were seated at a window, with views over the water and the harbor. I had cod and chips, which came with mushy peas and it was a MASSIVE amount of perfectly fried,... More

This is the place for take away fish and chips or in house dining. The quality of the fish and chips is first class. It can get very busy during the holiday season but it is worth waiting for a while. Used by Falmouth locals and visitors who are never disappointed. There is a "celebrity" fish shop quite near which... More

What fantastic fish and chips. We have had a takeaway and eaten in the restaurant. Both times the food has been excellent. Crispy and proper chips. Lovely batter and really flavoursome cod. A brilliant chippy. One of best I have eaten in.

2 families including teenagers and young children visited mid August. The staff were great and no hassle when one of our kids just wanted 4 chicken nuggets! Still got them in a bucket which was good for Crabbing the next day. The rest of us enjoyed the Cod,Haddock, Calamari and Fish bites. Lovely food and we visited twice that week... More
