Ate here one evening-smallish menu but lovely food.I chose steak and my husband sea bass-both were beautifully cooked and presented.However....service was dreadful. Staff came to table 2or 3 times for same order or not at all.As we sat and watched food and drink was being brought out to the wrong tables or people were asking for things that had been... More

A good 'stop off' point for a quiet relaxing drink, when out shopping. Did not eat here but the surrounding diners seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Food and service excellent with lovely views over the harbour. We were not sure from the outside but very pleased we chose this restaurant.

When arriving my request for a table for 7 plus a child was not greeted with much enthusiasm. After initially suggesting we move some table together ourselves, the waiter did manage to do it for us. Asking to place our drinks order we were told "can you order drinks at the bar" which we did although we noticed food orders... More

Tried the fish & chips here on a recent break and it was the best we have had , well presented ,hot and more than enough, had the same at RS a couple of days later and no contest. Will be returning when we are back in Falmouth, well done to all the hard working staff.

My wife and I ate dinner at Harbour View, seated outdoors, and were very happy with the result, in spite of the wobbly table. I really enjoyed a surprisingly hearty (not dainty!) duck salad, followed by a whole sole (although not presented whole; I would have enjoyed it even more with the head and tail) with capers and a very...

On a recent holiday in Falmouth we had breakfast here twice. I found the menu a little expensive, but when the food arrived it justified the cost. The view of the harbour provides a lovely setting for your meal and the staff were great.

We arrived for a quick evening meal, as we had our seven month old daughter with us, and enjoyed a wonderful meal with a great view of the harbour out on the decking and the best cornish sparkling wine tried to date

With seating inside or out this is perfectly positioned with great harbour views a chilling out session during a visit to Falmouth. We visited twice during the busy Tall Ships Festival, both evening and lunchtime and on both occasions the service and food was excellent. Only slight improvement would be to ban smoking outside when people are eating, otherwise excellent.

Oh dear!! I really wanted to like this place. A good location in Falmouth with great views of the harbour but that is the end of the good stuff. I popped in for a quick bowl of pasta and left frustrated 2 hours later after a catalogue of poor service. After waiting for over an hour for my food and... More
