Once you find it - just above the beach or short walk from Portscatho - it is a lovely place to have lunch over looking the beach. We had fresh pasties and ice cream - but the menu is quite extensive for a small place - something for all. Nice benches and tables to sit at.

Beautifully cooked fresh food. Pleasant ambience and friendly service. The squid starter is especially delicious.

We have been coming here for a number of years as we have had two children at university in Falmouth. It never fails to please. We revisited after gap of maybe four years and it is still great! Perfect whether for graduation or just a really good meal! Thanks!

well known in Falmouth for being a good place to eat. A smallish place so not good for large groups, good fish, good staff and all at a reasonable price.

The starters were great but the main courses a disappointment. Some 6 years ago we had a fabulous meal here but the Skate was bland - needed a good sauce and my wife's main was overcooked fish. Also the place was just us two and 6 Finns on a Friday night.

This little basement restaurant in Quay Hill was a good discovery on a Sunday evening in April when many of Falmouth's varied eating places were closed. Inside it is a bit like being inside a large beach hut with very friendly service. The generous portions of locally sourced fish was very fresh and carefully prepared.

Great location, really disappointing food. Tasteless scallops, a salad that could have been made better quite easily by anyone with a bag of rocket and some microwaved goats cheese and fishcakes that were so strong they tasted slightly off! Stay for the cute atmosphere, unfortunately the food is a bit average. Good points, again good atmosphere, good wine and reasonable... More

We ate here once and it was dreadful so gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried again- nope we were right the first time. The food was under flavoured and over cooked and hugely disappointing. The space itself is great and is intimate and cosy- just the food is dreadful. There is such amazing seafood in Cornwall and... More

Ate here with my wife, eldest son and his girlfriend - it was extremely good. It's only a small place, perhaps 24 - 26 covers spread across 7 or 8 tables, tucked down a side street underneath some of Falmouth's historic harbourside buildings. But they've worked wonders with this subterranean space, managing to make it feel both cosy and airy... More
