BRILLIANT!

What a find! Def need to book ahead. Blackboard lists whatever has been caught that day. We had crab to start and then lobster, fries and salad and cheeseboard to end - heaven! Simple cooking at its best. Without doubt best fish restaurant in Cornwall.

We have been visiting The Wheelhouse since it first opened. We generally get down to Falmouth at least once a year and book to eat at The Wheelhouse at least twice when we visit. It never fails to deliver on every level. The atmosphere is brilliant and the food is fantastic. Eating at the The Wheelhouse is an experience not... More

A fantastic evening - the food was sublime, the service excellent! This is how restaurants should be - the most important ingredient, the FOOD! We had shell-on prawns and mussels with bread and chips to soak up the beautiful sauce, with a Muscadet to wash it all down with - HEAVEN! On each table is a roll of kitchen paper... More

Tina and her wonderful staff make this fish restaurant such an amazingly warm friendly and welcoming place to eat top quality fresh fish. Would like to say a very big thank you to all and thank you for allowing us to try your hats.

My partner and I have lived in Falmouth for several years and the Wheel House has remained our favourite restaurant from our first visit there. Excellent food, friendly and welcoming service, reasonable prices.

Visited here last night with family who live in Falmouth. What a gem of a restaurant. Beautiful atmosphere when we arrived which just got better as the evening went on. Never seen so many happy diners! Food was out of this world. Service was faultless. Wish we had another Wheel House in the Cotswolds! Tina, your restaurant is simply perfect.

The only table left was for 6.30 but I think the large communal table is for people arriving on spec as another couple off the street were also seated at this table. It's so small that to guarantee eating here you need to make a reservation. Scallops and prawns come in 2 sizes so can be interchanged for starters/mains. The... More
