Little gem

Passing by and noticed this lovely place and it's brilliant setting. The food was delicious and the waitress very welcoming and accommodating. We would recommend the tapas (portion size was more than enough) and if the good ole Cornish sun is out get a seat outside!!! Unbeknown to us the ferry from... read more

I was hoping that after reading loads of positive comments about this restaurant I would be able to sample some of the fresh fish served there. What I've got on my plate was absolutely tasteless chewy and probably cooked from frozen fish with a very small portion of potatoes. After that 'delight' I came out of this place hungry and... More

Been to Flushing numerous times whilst on holiday in Mylor. Sunny day so decided to try The Waterside. Ordered Tapas of Scallops, Prawns, Squid, Mussels with chips & bread basket. Absolutely fantastic, can honestly say the best seafood we have tasted for a long time. Great service & dog friendly, so even if weather too bad to sit outside can... More

Finding this gem on the quayside at Flushing near Falmouth was a highlight of our visit. The menu offered choices of tapas dishes and fresh specials. The ordered the fish stew as a main course and it proved to be better than most I've experienced in Europe. The cheese board is also recommended, local tasty and good value. The staff... More

Staying in Mylor Bridge, we ate at the waterside on our last night. Starter of meatballs was superb and for main course we shared the Paella. Have never had this dish so full of fish and meat - fantastic. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and knowledgable about the wine and food on offer. We're already booked to stay... More

This is a great little restaurant, and we always come here on a trip to Cornwall. It's been through several owners but the current ones are doing a great job. The service was friendly and efficient, and the food was fab - we had calamari starter and then the paella which was also topped with calamari but no matter -... More

We stayed in Flushing for six nights and ate there twice, the last time being Sept 4th our Golden wedding anniversary. We had tried some other well known eateries and opted for this after our first experience. From the moment you walk in to this cosy venue you are made to feel as if you are somebody. The reception was... More

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 Spain. So... 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
