Description: Welcome to The Shack - a rustic shellfish bar in bustling Events Square, Falmouth, where the food is always fresh! Relaxed dining in an unrivalled atmosphere - with the focus on sparklingly fresh, local seafood. The idea is simple: sociable food and a fun, hands-on approach to shellfish. We've got something for everyone, from shellfish of every variety to fish of the day, steak, vegetarian options and a children's menu. Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

We choose to eat here as we had read the Trip advisor reviews and we were very pleased we had. This is a seafood restaurant and more specifically shell fish, if you don't like seafood this is not really the place for you, there was a steak on the menu and a vegie option, but that was it, so really this place is all about the shell fish.

The fish was fresh, local and delicious, the service was great and we had a really fun time eating a meal that was quite different to what we would usually choose. We were supplied with a hammer and nutcrackers to break up the crab, and given instructions on how best to do this. We ate the shack stack, a sharing platter of prawns, oysters, delicious mussels, a whole crab scallops, squid and fries. Everything was delicious, a great evening all round. We will be back on our next visit.

Well done Trip advisor another great recommendation!

We had found this seafood restaurant on Trip Advisor, and were not disappointed. We had the Shack Stack between us, felt very welcomed indeed, and the time taken to explain how to take apart a crab was most appreciated. The quality of all the seafood was fabulous, which is what we came for. Despite being a Monday evening in November the restaurant was relatively full. As another review has commented, the glass of sweet wine at the end was a nice touch.

Finally the post which referred to a 'ping from the microwave' was simply not true and demonstrates the potential huge harm of a factually-incorrect comment on Trip Advisor

Visited the Shack again last week and had yet another faultless meal. Oysters were delicious, anchovies tasty and haddock fish cake with poached egg cooked to perfection. The curry flavoured mussels were not my idea but thoroughly enjoyed by my friend, Profiteroles - shared because we were so full, were amazingly chocolatey and huge!!!!!
As always the service was friendly and welcoming, attentive without being intrusive. Very reasonably priced, will be visiting again soon,

We went here for my birthday, what an excellent restaurant, the waitresses were really pleasant and the Shack Stack was excellent value for money, My husband had the haddock and bacon chowder, and the plaice with the bubble and squeak which was cooked to perfection, i would definately come again, and i would certainly recommend it.
