Went last night for a joint birthday meal, tiny little place but very welcoming and warm. Loved the ambience. The Seafood was phenomenal! Didn't particularly like the 2 hour slot we were given but it is tiny and very popular so it's understandable. Recommended.

First class sea food in a very small restaurant down a tiny alley way. Must book and limited opening hours, also only take cash or cheques but well worth the effort

This is an incredibly popular eatery so booking is essential. There are normally 2 sittings, one at 6 pm and the other around 8.30pm. The specialities is shellfish except on a... More

Went to this restaurant on a recommendation from my boyfriends parents, and we were sooo wonderfully surprised by not only the food but the service and atmosphere of the place. Not only would I recommend this to everyone I know but I think that its an experience that everyone visiting/living in Falmouth and the surrounding areas should live through at... More

Me and my colleagues from work had a gorgeous meal here 2 weeks ago. The freshest fish in town with wonderful staff and atmosphere. You must book early.

This place is utterly amazing & a must for seafoodies. The menu is small - oysters, scallops, crab, prawns - cooked to perfection & served with bread, fries & salad. The staff are lovely. Very friendly, obliging & seem very happy in their work. There's a great ambiance in the restaurant, & it's great for a cosy meal for two,... More

We'd had a very long drive and were exhausted when we arrived at this gorgeous restaurant at 9 pm, worried we'd be too late for dinner. Stepping through the door was like entering a different world, a beautiful cosy little restaurant, tucked down a tiny street near the harbour, absolutely packed (and no wonder). Smiling, welcoming angels producing wine within... More
