Excellent service and first class fresh seafood

We loved this place having booked a few days staying in the apartment above. The food was excellent, especially the fresh scallops, which was on the specials board at the time, even my daughter fell in love with this place and she is extremely fussy about her food!

Excellent coffee in quayside bar, fresh interior and helpful staff made our quick pit stop a very pleasant experience. We didn't eat but the menu looked tasty and judging by the coffee I wouldn't hesitate to eat there next time.

Lovely place serving well cooked reasonably priced food. You do not expect to see such a vibrant modern surround when you walk into the Sharksfin. Ideally situated by the harbour. Dog friendly and lovely for all ages.

Was told they would... More

Set on the harbour in Mevagissey the Sharksfin oozes character. The staff are friendly and the food reasonably good. Sitting in a window seat you can drink in the sights and sounds of this lovely corner of Cornwall. Watch out for the seagulls which bomb you and create a cacophony of sound! Position alone will draw you here.

Called in here during our stay in Mevagissey and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The decor is amazing and someone has put a lot of thought into giving it a modern twist whilst still retaining its old world harbour feel.We ate here but we only had a selection of starters which I have to say were really tasty.The staff were excellent...
