We stopped here for a light lunch as we knew we could bring the dog on the decking, nice waiter gave us menus and explained how to order. Made our decisions and ordered.....you would expect your drinks to arrive before cooked food but no! Asked the waiter....still no coffees, finished my dinner and went and ask the counter staff......still no... More

We called in here for a cream tea. Unfortunately the scones had been microwaved as they crumbled when we tries to cut them - first time I've ever eaten a cream tea with a spoon! Also, I asked for Earl Grey which came as a wrapped Twinnings teabag with a large cup and small pot of hot water so I... More

I noticed -as I sat down to eat across from the Harbour Cafe, a staff member smoking on the steps at the side of the cafe. She had a teatowel draped over her left shoulder. The... More

Never had a bad meal here whether it be a bowl of seafood chowder or fresh fish done so many interesting ways e.g lemon sole with potatoes done in smoked paprika and cherry tomato sauce with mussels and asparagus or baked hake with lemon crushed potatoes and broccoli. The steaks are fantastic as are the light bite such as fish... More

We always manage to book an inside window seat and love the fish & chips. The service is friendly. Consistency could be better but on the whole the overall experience is good. We look forward to the planned improvements for the restaurant.

Stopped for a quick mid morning cuppa and cake, attracted by the outside seats and, surprise surprise Harbour view. Coffee and cake came and very nice it was too. Only niggle was that on sitting down you are not sure if it's waitress service or not. Cafe owners, please stick a bloody sign up! Otherwise a very nice place. Give... More

As a resident of Falmouth there are many advantages to Spring and one of them is the re-opening of this restaurant after it's winter rest. It has a great menu with an interesting selection of specials which always includes some very fresh local catch. By chance we arrived for dinner on their first Friday night opening this season and boy... More
