We go here every year with friends from Switzerland. You MUST reserve a table as soon as possible otherwise you won't get a table.. we reserve as soon as our trip to Falmouth is arranged. They do two sittings and keep it simple and brilliant. It's 'higgledy piggeldy'... tables and chairs don't match, no table cloths, you get paper napkins,... More

No wonder this gets booked up so far in advance. For anyone who loves shellfish, this is truly the best restaurant to visit. It is very small and has great atmosphere with everyone so very welcoming. They even made room for our Golden Retriever in spite of the lack of floor space. We will certainly be trying to book a... More

I reviewed this place a while back but OMG it is still just as fabulous and I would eat here all the time if I lived in Falmouth. It is still just as crazy busy and you may have to squeeze in but the food is so delicious. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would -... More

Love this place, always a great time, food, service, atmosphere and the owner Tina is so welcoming and friendly. Fantastic value for money, this is a fish restaurant so if you don't eat fish you would not like. Advise to book as its small & cosy and popular with the locals🍷🐟 enjoy

We ate at this charming restaurant “The Wheelhouse”, September 2016, and it was delicious from start to finish! We had tried to book several times before, after finding it had such good reviews here on TripAdvisor, but it is and tremendously popular restaurant, and it is hard to get in. We had tried to book for July the last time... More
