Lovely Lobster , Mussels and chowder - lovely service and a decent price . A real alternative to the rather corporate looking Rick Steins opposite

We only stopped by for some oysters and a glass of wine.. But what a great decision! Truly divine Fowey oysters and at £2 each, entirely reasonable.

We always call here on our way to St. Ives. They do a really mean breakfast. One of the few places that do crispy bacon if you ask for it. Well worth a visit.

I ordered three local oysters followed by crab pasta (in fact, linguini). Swiftly prepared, and served with humour in the hot sunshine. Wonderful.

We went here on our first night in falmouth and had the fish platter for two and it was lovley, full of lovely fresh prawns, calamari, a whole crab, muscles, oysters, scallops, chips and dips, it was deliciously messy and very enjoyable, and everything was cooked perfectly.

The steak was so tender with great flavour, the steak though was only 6oz leaving us still a little hungry at the end of our meal. Would be great to have a steak either 8oz or 10oz & would be more than happy to pay that... More
