Nice place

Did not have any food so can't comment on that. But did have a coffee there. The service was good, really busy there. I think in the summer months it would be horrendously busy there.

Location, Food, Service and Atmosphere. This place ticks all boxes. We came in for a coffee earlier in the day and asked to book a table after seeing the fantastic views and some of the amazing food. We got a loverly table near the window and the ambiance was very different to the day time, but perfectly in line with... More

Love this place. Such a perfect setting and so welcoming. Super fresh menu and it's right on the beach. Have eaten inside and out on the decking. Hot chocolates outside with the blankets and under the heaters a must!

A busy, well run cafe/bar that knows what it's doing. Service and food good value for money. Worth booking in advance if visiting Falmouth.

This restaurant is a cafe. Or, is it a bar? It suffers a complex brought on by the stunning location and a chef (small c) who struggles with a menu to cover the Gylly beach identity. On weekday mornings and afternoons it is a lovely coffee stop. Good coffee, great place to relax (so long as you do not let... More

Great food, fantastic views and friendly staff. One of our favourite places to come for a bit of lunch or breakfast. Sometimes you do have to wait a bit for food but that's usually because it's so busy and popular.

Ok thats a bit harsh and the reason I'm giving a good score is because things have improved here dramatically - it used to be quite snobby but now they'll accept any old riff raff without turning up their noses!! Atmosphere is excellent, food lovely and view amazing - just don't forget the locals we keep you going in the... More

Despite Gylly Beach Cafe being in a prime location in Falmouth it consistently gives poor service to it's customers. So much so that I refuse to go there anymore and I would not recommend to friends. The food is average to good but the waiting times and the service is poor. On one occasion, at 8.00 on a Friday evening,... More

the staff are always friendly. Great to sit outside on the sofas with a hot drink under the heaters. Amazing view and the food is always great. The simple trendy decor works really well, worth dropping in during the day or for an evening meal.
