Intimate and clean

Had the valentines day special lunch here. Very limited menu but it is a small venue. Good for sea food but unfortunately I don't eat fish. Portions were very small but the prices were too so I guess you get what you pay for. Friendly staff and right on the harbour so a good location

Love cider and especially Cornish cider so was excited when this place opened in Falmouth. Great choice of drinks and food, priding itself on pies and pizza. Great feel to the restaurant and communal tables so you don't feel out on a limb. I had a veggie pie that came with lots of sides that really made the meal. Would... More

We just popped in here on the off chance after doing a bit of shopping. We had the lunch time menu which was a set price and at £12 was reasonable. Menu was limited but I still took ages to make up my mind as there were at least 3 starters I couldn't decide between. Portion sizes were just about... More

If you want to experience incredible food and staff then go to the Shack in Falmouth! It took some beating, the sea bass was the best we have ever had, honestly! Followed by the sticky toffee pud with ice cream, dreamy, delicious and made up stop talking ! Great meal, will be returning.

Took some friends there for lunch today. Hoped to get the two courses for £12:00 all round, but I was the only one who ordered a starter, so even cheaper! Lovely tasty whitebait, and four haddock, chips and mushy peas, freshly prepared to order- even the batter - so it took a while to come but the weather was hideous... More

We live in Cornwall and go to Falmouth every few months, in Summer this restaurant is bulging at the seams but in the Winter months it is a comfortable welcoming haven away from wind and wet, Friendly flexible service provided a good couple of plats du jour in 15 minutes. The night after my wife went to a Truro restaurant... More

Myself and my husband came hear as I'm a lover of seafood. This is a cosy little place and the staff are very attentive. I like prepping and all the work that comes with seafood, however my husband doesn't so there was food for us both. Very fresh and a good selection.

My wife and I love shell fish but my daughter doesn't like it at all. The Shack were happy to make the Ranchs menu (sister restaurant next to them) available (please check first!) for her so she could enjoy the meat meal and we could have the shell fish. Both types of meals were excellent. Ambiance was also excellent and... More

My husband and I live above The Shack, so of course we end up eating there all the time. However, there are six other restaurants on the square, and this is the only one that we visit repeatedly--an indication of the quality of their food. The menu isn't huge, but it doesn't need to be; these guys are experts at... More
