A break in the day

About to spend the afternoon afoot we nipped in for a bite to eat. The food was excellent. Two meals off the specials board were produced hot and fresh. The Portuguese boneless chicken was moist and succulent as was the chat grilled salmon. A pizza cooked to perfection and a chicken burger which... read more

Waited a long time for our food and when it came it was disappointing, nothing special and I left my Chicken fillet as it was cold and tough. The only food that was any good was the burgers the rest were all underwhelmed.

Although small, limited on menu and pretty pricey, as others have mentioned; the lobster was possibly the best I've ever had! The crab not so great, but would go back and have 2 of those spiny creatures; one for me and one for my wife! Would recommend it on that alone.

Had the 'shack stack' was very tasty, fresh & well cooked. Just that I could have probably eaten about 4 of them alone, even my waif of a friend was still hungry (almost unheard of) but nevertheless a very nice meal with good service, good wine & lovely atmosphere. Will more than likely eat there again though.

Went twice to The Shack. It's a small place with good food but quite expensive. The menu is limited but high quality. We had the fish of the day which was really good and came back to try the Fish & Chips which were also good. The Belgian Waffle and Chocolate Tarts were quite good in the desserts section. They...

Falmouth is full of great places to eat but I was really pleased that we ate at The Shack. Would definitely recommend it for great seafood and steak, lovely staff, relaxed ambience and reasonable prices.
