Don't be fooled by the appearance of this place, as it'll certainly prove that looks can be deceptive. It's called The Shack after all, so the furnishing are quite rustic with sone of the tables having benches / picnic tables. The average exterior doesn't do the food justice. We met family here who had booked for a lunch time birthday... More

A superb meal here: the seafood combo for two, with crab, mussels, scallops, prawns and fries. Sublime prawn starter. Lovely beer, great service, finishing with a freebie sweet wine. All delicious. A great vibe and worth booking. Go there.

Best spot for fish. Great chowder, but fish and chips, mussels, whiting, other specials, all sampled. Go here rather than Rick's opposite.

What a plaice! If you are in Falmouth get The Shack booked in and you will not be disappointed. We went, family of 4, the boys (8 and 6) were treated really well. They enjoyed trying our prawns and squid starters. The kids mains, scampi and goujons were fresh and gorgeous. I opted for dressed crab which was awesome and... More

Really great staff, the kitchen where happy to change items on the sharers platter and it was all cooked to perfection. Attentive service and despite it being a very busy Saturday night. The service never felt rushed and thats a credit to the management and and the way the tables had been booked. Can't recommend this place enough.
