Good food but not quite as good as a few years ago. Hard climb up the stairs to the first floor and due to there not being many customers, service was a little slow however the cod was more the size of a whale!

Fast food it isn't - service is pretty poor - waited 25 minutes for a pair of sandwiches, the seats were about 60% taken so not really that busy. They seem to have a whole set of teenagers running it with little idea of organization or purpose. The tables were a bit sticky, the layout a bit cramped, the tables stayed covered in debris after people left for far longer than they should. The food wasn't bad - really nice sandwich bread, nice big chunky fresh slices. Cooked food was OK, cost reasonable.

The restaurant has a great position in the harbour, the food is ok. We had pasta and sea bass from the specials board and both were fine. The one thing that lets the place down is the service, as mentioned in other reviews the waitress avoids eye contact and try's to avoid customers. The other staff again could do with a bit of customer focus training .
This place has the potential to be good, however not quite there yet.

We took our son and his family (including two small children) here on the last night of our stay. The food was excellent and there were some nice veggie choices too. They helpfully have a "family room" at the back which was handy with two small boisterous people in tow! The prices were a tad expensive, but we ate there twice during the week and thoroughly enjoyed both meals.

My husband and I ate here one evening whilst in Mevagissey. We both ordered fish & chips and were both very disappointed. The fish was by no means as nice as from the local takeaway fish shop and the chips were frozen!

We were eating out for breakfast the following morning and the Wheelhouse was the only place open at 9.00am so we reluctantly re-visited not expecting anything special. However, my husband had a full breakfast which looked and apparently was delicious. I had two slices of granary toast with butter and marmalade - it was lovely lots of butter and marmalade in pots and two thick slices of toast - Wheelhouse redeemed itself somewhat with breakfast.
