Thank you to all the staff at Wreckers for making our Christmas meal so enjoyable. Everyone has been raving about the food and most of those who had opted for 2 courses enjoyed it so much that they ended up having 3. It was all delicious. The games on the table kept us all amused all evening and fun was... More

I am very happy to read your kind comments about the evening you have experienced at Wreckers. We are right in the middle of a very busy Christmas month and receiving reviews like yours will just motivate us all a little more.

What a lovely restaurant, the views of the harbour, with the tall ships docked, was spectacular. It was a very comfortable restaurant, and the food was brilliant, and such a beautiful spot.

This is the second time we have visited this restaurant - this time we saw vast improvements in the quality of food and the service from excellent staff. We visited this time with four friends and we all enjoyed our meals - they specialize in sea food - so if you enjoy good wholesome fish and excellent friendly staff this... More

Thank you very much for your kind comments about all the improvements you have noticed. We are very happy to hear your friends also enjoyed their seafood. We try and source our fish as local as possible and if we can, we get it straight from Charlestown. I hope we see you again in the near future and I assure... More

Genuinely faultless in all aspects. Lovely atmosphere, very relaxing and quick service. We had the fish mixed grill from the specials board, 2 for £25, bargain, the fish was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Regrettably couldn't fit in a desert, but they too looked amazing from what I could see being taken to other tables. Would highly recommend.

I visited Wreckers on the evening of 6 November with several friends. We were impressed with the efficient and friendly service. My main course was seafood grill, a mixture of fish, all cooked perfectly and served with potato cake and a bed of vegetables. Absolutely mouth watering and washed down with wonderful Betty Stogs ale from Skinners' Brewery in Truro.... More

We didn't book and restaurant was busy, so very pleased to get a table. Expecting things to be a little slow as we were pre warned only one chef on. Starters came straight out and main course was served after a five minute rest after starters. Fillet of Pork was delicious as was the Fish and Chips. Really pleased we... More

Found this by accident but you should find Wreckers on purpose if you're in the area. It's lovely, the actual building an decor is super, manages to be traditional and modern at the same time. Sooo clean and tidy. We wanted breakfast and ticked the box asking if this was one of the best meals we've ever had, it certainly... More
