This place is amazing. Very intimate setting with amazing local seafood. Make sure you book before going though, as it's very small.

Our second visit and we were looked after brilliantly by Tina, Flo and the team. We left Tina to chose our meal and the seafood was faultless as ever. Fun, relaxed and real...... if only this could be replicated in our part of the world!

This is our 3rd time dining here and again we were not disappointed. After an initial disappointment with their booking system we did manage to get a table as our son was able to visit and speak to them personally. My one and only criticism is the booking system - having to leave a message to not know for sure... More

Just back from a lovely supper at The Wheelhouse. Scallops to start and mussels. Two lots cooked in wine and then another Thai style. Service could not be improved upon. Tina, the owner, always on hand and waitress/meal buddy to advise on menu choices. This place is a one-off and deserves it's no 1 place on TripAdvisor. Book well in... More

I love it here, we managed to sneak in a table for two on a busy night last summer. It was like walking into a friends house, the service and the atmosphere. The food was delicious and plenty of it. Can't wait to get back here on our next visit to Falmouth!
