Busy restaurant close to Charlestoewn Harbour

Food choice was wide with really fresh fish cooked to perfection. Judging by the number people it is a very popular restaurant.

We have twice eaten at Wreckers in Charlestown, both times early evening in mid-July. On the first occasion the place was very busy indeed but it had an energetic buzz about it which added to to the atmosphere of our holiday meal. It was a bit of a wait for the food to arrive but the staff were very apologetic... More

Table of 3 on a Monday night about 2000 hrs. We visited without a booking and got the impression that we were lucky to get a table. A couple of hours later we were glad we did. All three starters were excellent. Two portions of mussels (the best I had out of 3 while in Cornwall including in Padstein!) and... More

We booked our table for us and a couple of friends. We arrived to our table decorated with happy birthday stuff. The staff are always excellent and so is the food. I am coeliac so I can even have pasta but there is much more. Such a great place to eat.

The fish dishes were all excellent! My husband enjoyed the creamy mussels and I had a fish medley! It was also beautifully presented and the setting was very nice,
