If the Harbour lights made fish and chips any better, I would think I had died and gone to heaven, much much much better than the big name restraunts just up the road, and excellent value for money. Now all I have to do now is work out when I can come back again

You will get some of the best fish and chips in this restaurant, you can choose to have your fish either grilled or battered, which is nice as most places you don't get the choice. We have been here a few times and we will definitely be returning next time we are down here on holiday. Excellent service and fantastic... More

Possibly the best fish and chips in the world, even better when taken into the Front pub behind the restaurant to enjoy with a delicious pint or two. Never start a visit to Falmouth with out a portion or two of their fish and chips.

Quality, fresh fish and chips. I'd give the sausage a miss next time though--really did not enjoy that!

Pete F, Owner at Harbour Lights Restaurant, responded to this review

Hello, and thank you for reviewing us on tripadvisor. While we don't have a record of your complaint, it seems like you weren't comfortable letting us know that your order wasn't correct, and you were happy with the speed of service. Many apologies. I'm not sure why you'd be under the impression that you would "get the meal from hell"... More

It has had a make over since our last visit. But now it has fairylights dangling from the ceiling, and a rather strange random decorative theme. All the tables and chairs were different colours and styles. Rather an harlequin effect. Irritating to the eye as you looked around. But the food was okay though, but just average.
