We booked a table for 10 at Harbour View to celebrate my husbands 60th Birthday and the evening was excellent. As it is around Christmas, we decided to go with the set 3 course Christmas, so we had to give the choices back to them in advance (as is usual in many restaurants) One of my daughters was Vegan, so...

We had a really nice breakfast here, sitting outside on their lovely terrace with great views. Staff were friendly and quite accommodating with our breakfast orders e.g. no beans for me, extra black pudding etc.... More

Ate here on the outside terrace overlooking the harbour below. John was very helpful. The food was fresh and tasty and the wine beautifully chilled. Would recommend it highly - very good value too.

Wonderful visit here recently for a family meal; we got a great welcome and fabulous food - the specials were delicious and the a la carte dishes just as good. An absolute pleasure: we'll be back on our next visit to Falmouth.

Regarding the food, I was a bit disappointed by the sole I ordered as it wasn't cooked enough and therefore struggled with bones. Capers and Veg on the side were... More

We came here for lunch to treat my mother-in-law as she had been helping a lot with the kids so we wanted something special. We were not disappointed in any way. Every component of the meal was really good with friendly service. Can thoroughly recommend.
