Four of us had a lovely meal here. I had booked by leaving an answer phone message, which was responded to very swiftly. The staff were friendly and helpful, the food was very tasty and reasonably priced. It was informal dining at its best - in fact the only slight negative was the noisy smashing of shellfish shells by other... More

3 friends and I ate lunch at The Shack on Wednesday lunch time, although busy the service was quick and attentive. Delicious food, we had the 2 courses for £12. Such a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Can't recommend it highly enough.

We preordered the lobster as we were advised to do so. When it arrived it was cold. The service was average. I think it's overpriced and overrated. There are much better resturants in Falmouth to spend your money in.

This restaurant appears to be one of the best seafood restaurants in the town. Lunch was courses for £12. Excellent fried squid and whitebait then mussels and frites. All excellent and value for money!

We liked this shellfish restaurant very much - it is an unpretentious place to try the local produce including the delicious brown crab. We had the Shack Stack for the two of us which was a great way to sample a lot of food. The waiter did a great job of managing lots of tables who seemed to come all... More

After a long drive down from Cheshire we were disappointed to find that our first choice options were closed on Sunday. Got the Shack from TA and never looked back. Friendly and efficient service and a lovely meal of squid starters and hake as fish of the day from the blackboard. A real find so we will be back asap.

Great seafood - really well cooked. Sweet chilli sauce with the squid was delicious, the other accompaniments were also good. Enjoyed the freshness of the fish of the day. Great to see then making the most of cornwall's fantastic seafood. Would have liked a bit better beer/cider selection, especially local produce. But overall, great place by the harbour!
