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.

“Fantastic Seafood”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Split a "Shack Stack" (Seafood Platter) with Prawns, Calamari, Oysters, Mussels, Scallops and a whole crab. Everything was exceptional, and the staff were friendly and helpful. All the food is freshly caught from cornwall and tastes all the better for it. Highly recommend to anyone.

“Glorious shells!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

As per most reviews, most impressed with excellent food and super friendly, attentive service!

I looked up several places and this is probably the nices one in the area for duality / price; be prepared to spend at least £30-35 per head to have a nice meal! ( I had no wine - not too impressed with choice/price ratio)

“The taste of the sea I was craving”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Came here late march, friendly staff amazing food. Shared a 'Shack stack' with my girlfriend which had a whole crab, two oysters, muscels, shell on prawns, crispy squid rings and chips, all garnished with what i think was sanfire. Everything was amazing and of high quality, even the starter of bread and aioli. Our server was friendly and very helpful, she warned us there was a group of 10 arriving shortly and was sure to get in our order before they arrived. Would 100% go again if I find myself in Falmouth. Only complaint was it was a little cold in the restaurant
