Great little Restaurant

We ate here as a family of 9 towards the end of our holiday. The service and food were excellent. If you like fish this is particularly good and the scallop starter created some serious food envy in everyone that didn't order it! The paella as a main was excellent - as good as any I've had in... read more

Found this place following a lovely costal walk from Mylor Harbour. Had been recommended to us by a German couple we met whilst in Germany, but literally stumbled across it. Beautiful location, fantastic service and tasty tapas. Little disappointed that there was no scallops or mussels available but what we chose was tasty, hot, and prepared by a chef who... More

Once agin a very enjoyable experience. The informality of the Waterside accompanied with great food and service makes this a restaurant worth going out of your way for. Once agin missed the water taxi service, the driver seemingly detained in the local pub! This is Cornwall at its finest!! Visited the next day for a post walking lunch........superb tapas! .........YUM

The location is perfect and the daily landing of seafood is great. Don't expect sophistication but the service is friendly and knowledgeable. Only opens a few days a week and seating is limited.

Very friendly atmosphere and staff with perfect view of the harbour. The food was reasonably priced well presented and extremely enjoyable. We visited twice on our all to brief visit to Flushing, but will frequent the Waterside again

We were staying nearby in Trefusis and wanted a good meal after a long day without going far. This small, picturesque and characterful restaurant fitted the bill well. It sits right in the quay and as you look out of the windows up and down the estuary, you could well feel that you were actually on the water itself! The... More

I found this restaurant online as I wanted somewhere by the water to have lunch with my teenagers while we staying in Falmouth. We were very lucky with the weather as it was a beautiful day and were able to sit outside. From the outset, the service was fantastic and we were made to feel welcome and relaxed. We had... More

We loved this place! We were made to feel very welcome right from the moment of booking let alone arrival! It's small, warm and cosy which was lovely given that the night we went it was blowing a hooley and chucking it down! The fresh fish was beautiful and all washed down with a nice bottle of Picpoul! The menu... More

We went to the waterside on 24th October, it was a great night! The service was excellent and second to none, the waiter was exceptional! The food was brilliant, and I would really recommend the fish and chips or the catch of the day, the desserts were also fantastic. I would recommend this restaurant.

Used to visit here in the late 70s when it was sole or sole (large or small) on the menu and you took your own wine!! The inside had only changed a little but the food choice was considerably more upmarket as was the wine list. Prawns and scallops for starters were simply devine and the mains (Paella, fish curry...
