I was back at Fuel in the last couple of days, after a summer visit to Falmouth. The decor has been updated, still contemporary, but abit cosier. Comfort food. Great looking seasonal arrangements, perfect for late November. We ate at Fuel in the evening, I recommend the mackerel pate as a starter. My fellow diners had kedgeree, and garlic prawns... More

Having walked around Falmouth looking for a spot of lunch we opted for this place. Mistake. We seated to a dirty table with dirty cutlery. The glasses were either heavily water stained or dirty. The overall feel was the staff were rushed off their feet, yet it didn't seem that busy. It took a long time for the waitress to... More

Waited over 25 min for Greek salad and BLT. Greek salad had wet leaves so no dressing clung to it. No cucumber sy so the waitress brought some. Lots of feta and olives, pine nuts were nice touch. BLT was good. Didn't dare order coffee because we didn't want to wait forever. They had fun board and card games to... More

We enjoyed coffee and people watching at Fuel. The service was good and coffee very good. Waitress was very kind to my grandsons. I would recommend this place for a brak in your day with good coffee.

We were a party of four, visited during Falmouth oyster festival. We mentioned to the waitress, Chantal, that none of us had tried oysters. After ordering she brought us an oyster each on the house, saying that the people in the kitchen thought we should try them. How generous! The food we ordered was also generous in portions and quite... More

Lovely little café where we had a coffee and a piece of delicious coffee and walnut cake. We arrived in the café about 3pm and were told that they were only serving coffee and cake, which was fine as this was all we wanted. Unfortunately, they only had one type of cake left, but again this didn't matter as the... More

Funny thing, restaurant reviews. Sometimes your eye is drawn to the one "bad" experience someone's had to the detriment of the numerous positive experiences. Shame if that's the case here because it's a cracking little place; my daughters and I had a lovely lunch today, food was excellent, good price and service just right; really friendly welcome and the kind...
