Tasty food, service so/so

After an hour of walking and reading all the menus along the high street, we settled for Fuel as it was their specials board that enticed us in, we ordered some wine and were then handed the menus and advised where the specials board was, I chose something off the menu and my husband asked for a... read more

We had seen Fuel all week whilst on holiday in Falmouth and said we would go in on out last night - we wished we hadn't. We all had fish and chips with mushy peas (4 of us). When it came out there was one small bowl of things that looked like crushed peas, welded to the bowl, I had... More

Lovely food thats good for breakfast lunch or dinner! I am a real foody and love Falmouth for that reason, Fuel is one restaurant I will always return to each time. Although the restaurant is not super-thrilling, the food is priced very well and always delicious.

we went for a brunch on a Saturday morning and the service food and surroundings all above average and the prices reflected the quality of produce used. I would recommend this place to family and friends

Ate here 3 times during a week long holiday in Falmouth - (2 dinners, 1 breakfast). Service was good every time, staff were always friendly and accommodating. Cocktails were great, food was delicious, lovely atmosphere - need I say anymore? Nice touch to be able to see into the kitchen - good to know that food is being prepared fresh... More

Slow service with staff not particularly proactive. Food well cooked and enjoyable. Waited ages for a sweet and almost gave up.

We had dinner here twice and breakfast once during our holiday in Falmouth as we liked it the first time. For us it was just what we were looking for. It has a good and wide ranging menu, reasonable prices and perhaps most importantly staff who really seemed to care that we were enjoying our meal. Everyone in our party... More

The combination of the friendly, relaxed atmosphere combined with good food which is very reasonably priced made it very easy to understand how Fuel has such a good rating on here. I had the falafel burger (without the bun) - the portion size was huge and the quality was great which is pretty amazing given that it cost less than... More

The place has a relaxed feel about it, the staff were friendly. The food was very good, I had the chicken burger which was very generous, I couldn't finish it. The prices are reasonable. My only complaint was the coffee, weak and not hot enough, I would definitely recommend for food though.
