Busy night with tall ships in town and a packed restaurant but the food and service were excellent. Can really recommend the Wheel House and will come back to Falmouth just to eat here again.

My new favourite restaurant in Cornwall. Staff are warm and friendly and you couldn't ask for better service. Food is to die for, very simply but beautifully cooked shellfish. Cannot recommend this place high enough.

I booked this restaurant about 6 weeks in advance of our first ever visit to Falmouth, and I'm so glad I did. It's one of the best meals I've ever had! It is so quirky inside, I expected Captain Jack Sparrow to come bursting through the door with a tankard of Rum! We had 1/2Lbs of Sailor Mussels, followed by... More

Booked into here with my misses months in advance and it was well worth it!!! Small, warm and friendly and attentive. The scallops, prawns, and crab were the best ever!!

Have been trying to get in here for ages. Finally made it this week, well worth the wait and not disappointed. Have made the next booking already. Nothing to add to any of the other excellent reviews - they have said it all!

We raved about this restaurant when we first found it in December 2013 and had looked forward to a return visit when holidaying in the area in June. We went there twice (booked well in advance) taking different sets of friends on each occasion (who were also impressed). The food, as before, was just superb. Can't recommend this place enough.

We had a lot of different seafood for dinner. Everything was very nice, I dont know what they did with the french fries, but I must say there was the best ever. The service was fabulous. Little restaurang, so You must book Your table many days before.
