“A lovely Autumnal meal”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

A group of us went here this week for a late lunch and, as it was a warm day we sat outside to eat. The food was good and reasonably priced, the service excellent - friendly and fast - and we had a very enjoyable experience with a great view. The only 'but' is that smoking is allowed outside and that became a problem so that we had to move tables. Because of the breeze the smoke affected a number of other people as well, if that policy could be changed it would be the perfect place for lunch by sea.

We were very pleased to hear of your recent "enjoyable" experience at the Harbour View and glad to hear that you received such good service. We are sorry that the smoke from some other customers out on the deck slightly spoilt your visit. We do our best to accommodate all our customers and obviously hope that those that do smoke are considerate of others. We will certainly look into the possibility of having a more restricted "smoking area". Obviously we do not allow smoking inside the restaurant. We hope to see you again.

“Quality and value for money”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Had an excellent breakfast there in the morning and noticed that it had an interesting dinner menu so gave it ago that evening. It was a wise choice. All our starters were very good and no one suffered from food envy, I can definitely recommend the calamari. Main courses were exceptional, the mackerel was cooked to perfection with just the right quantity of Cornish new potatoes, the sea food linguine had a garlic and cream sauce to die for and the fish chowder made me wish I could have had room for two mains. Extra bonus was that they will cook the burghers rare. At just under £90 for four including drinks really good value. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Great view, shame it was dark”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Both had Rump Steak and both really enjoyed them. The meat was tender and everything was well cooked. We got a table in the window overlooking the harbour, which I'm sure is a lovely view during the day. Service was excellent.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your steaks. The view is indeed even better during the day though we do always like to see the lights at night. We hope you enjoyed your visit to Falmouth.

“Very nice meal”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

My wife and I had a very nice meal here on our first evening in Falmouth. The food was good and the service was friendly. We sat inside as it was cool evening and were lucky that we had a great view of the harbour (table 8). There are fewer tables inside as most are outside on a deck. Blankets are provided though and there are patio heaters under the umbrellas. We would eat here again without any hesitation. Good value.
