Very small restaurant with a great atmosphere, wise to book well in advance. They have a simple menu of sea food and we chose an enormous crab between four of us, very messy (we had bibs on) but worth it. The mussels were delicious and so were the prawns. Definately worth a visit if staying near Falmouth, they only take cash or cheque as no card machine and the restaurant is closed on Sunday/Monday/Tuesday.

Situated down a little alley by the docks. A tiny rustic venue with a french feel and very atmospheric. The restuarant only serves shellfish from the humble mussel to the extravagant lobster. The food is simply prepared and it's very hands on !! Key seems to be to book early and get the best of what's available. The later you go the less choice you will have.

Great personal service and the bill didnt break the bank. Worth noting you will need cash or cheque to pay, no c/cards excepted.

My boyfriend and I had booked in advance having read other reviews and it was well worth it. We only got a table at 6:15 but if anything this may have been an advantage as we got first pick of the menu which gradually got reduced as orders went through and fresh produce such as the crab was run out of. The staff were very friendly and talked us through everything for our first visit. We went for items to share so got the scallops which were fantastic, the mussels in traditional white wine sauce and the prawns (shell off) in a chilli and ginger sauce. These were our least favourite - preferring the more original sauces that didn't mask the fresh seafood flavours. We had local cider and a leaf salad with our meal both of which were lovely. I'd definitely return and if we did would book again to make sure we got in and wouldn't shy away from an early booking either.
