This was one of our all time favourite restaurants. Always reserved a table well ahead of each visit. Always enjoyed each visit. Was a special place. Tony, we need to know where you are now. All the very best in your next venture

Unfortunately this excellent restaurant has now closed for good. This is quite a loss to Falmouth as the food presented was very good. Sadly missed

Decided to book this restaurant as the menu looked good its a shame it wasn't. I ordered the steak off the set menu I received to fillets this all seemed good until I realised my steak had more fat on it than Rick Waller it was tough and very low quality my dog would have struggled to consume it.

Although the menu predominantly caters for seafood tastes we decided to give it a go as there were some things on the menu that my seafood-hating wife could eat. We have eaten here a few times over the years but this was the first in a long time. This restaurant has a cosy atmosphere and is ideal for couples and... More

We spend a week in Falmouth once or twice a year, and always have dinner, at least once, at Bistro de la Mer.Our most recent visit on Tuesday of last week was as delightful as always! We had booked a few days in advance, and requested a window table, to which we were shown on arrival. Falmouth has a busy... More

Dear Natasha6319 Thank you very much for your review. It's great that people appreciate what we do food and service wise and also enjoy a clean toilet. The girls will be very happy with your comment on our service. The food always gets top billing, but it would not have half the impact, were it not for the effort they... More

We walked in off the street yesterday evening, our first time in Cornwall, and really appreciated the welcome. I had the tiger prawns which were spicy and delicious. The sea bass was tasty. My husband had the crab soup which went down a treat and the linguine was very good. I love the street level ambience and would thoroughly recommend... More

This place is a must if you like seafood, all the usual sea food dishes available. Service great, a little expensive but food also fantastic.

This tiny little bistro restored my belief in eating out this spring! My partner and I spent a week driving around Cornwall in March this year basing ourselves at 'The Headland' hotel in Newquay (which is excellent b.t.w.) and also in Falmouth for a couple of days. I wanted to try lots of restaurants since food is one of my... More

While staying in Falmouth we decided to give this small restaurant a try. So glad we did! We decided to choose from the set menu - excellent value and delicious. My husband had the white bait and I had huge tiger prawns with garlic butter. Main courses were steak and a Maderia sauce with new potatoes and sea bass with... More
