We went in here for a drink before we decided where to go to eat, looked at the menu and decided to eat here as well. We both had sardines to start which were with medveg and were really good. I then had mixed seafood in a broth for main, which was very good. My Wife had megrim sole which... More

First time trying this restaurant and loved the fish and chips. The batter was very light and the fish a joy. Whole family enjoyed the meal. Staff were excellent as well.

Slightly disappointing visit to this cafe recently, it was better in the past. Started with a sharing platter comprised of olives (very nice but only 2 cocktail sticks provided, I asked for another but it never materialised), 4 meagre pieces of bread, a generous piece of Camembert, 2 small slices of chorizo (annoying as there was 3 of us), some...

family run and you always feel welcome - a good choice of fish and other things - they even do fish, chips, peas, bread and tea as a special! The rose is also excellent value.

The very pleasantly located restaurant with a great outside decked eating area with harbour views didn't quite seem to reach its potential. The menu and the special boards offered great possibilities and the staff were very helpful and pleasant but the cooking and the presentation were nearly there but seemed to be only 75% of the level that the environment...

A mid-week trip into Falmouth looking for a nice sit down outside chippie......this cafe is more than a 'chippie', however. No booking made, quickly shown to a table, quick service from very polite and helpful staff. It was a lovely warm summer evening, which helped. The layout of the cafe is very tastefully done, taking in the sights of the... More

Enjoyed a really great lunch outside on the Terrace, it was lovely weather so it felt a must to find somewhere that had alfresco dining. Fresh Mackerel with Shrimp and Couscous was delicious as was the Sole with Capers. Lovely staff offered good service. Thank you....

The food was excellent ,my wife particularly enjoyed the large juicy mussels and my burger was excellent . The Pinot Grigo and the Merlot were also very good .The service was friendly and... More
