The menu does not specify that the crab is served in it's shell, and the chef refuses to take the shell off, and the chips were not cooked. The belly pork (?) was dry and served with an excruciatingly sweet sauce - inedible. The monk...More

For example we felt the tapas were definitely overpriced as you only get one scallop chopped up, or one small sized oyster etc. The mains and sides were also smaller than expected. I guess you are paying for the location and views to an extent...More

I work on the beach below this restaurant but don't go very often, unless we want to impress someone and today was no exception. We shared the excellent tapas for a starter and all ordered the daily specials. The other three had the Hake which...More

I came with my wife on a grim rainy day, but the food, atmosphere and service made up for the rain. Fantastic seafood and triple cooked chips to die for (plus some great cocktails) Not cheap but well worth it!

Cracking restaurant by the sea serving fantastic local seafood. Had the seafood platter including the best mussels I've ever tasted. Would highly recommend a visit if in Falmouth.

Being a solo diner I was made to feel very welcome and at ease dining early (6.00) on a Friday evening. The location is awesome with wonderful views of the bay. The service was friendly and all my needs/requests were catered for. The meal was...More

Sun shinning, an hour walk around the beautiful coast path, finishing with a superb lunch, in a very relaxed restaurant over looking a stunning beach. Oysters and mussels with fantastic wine, Britain at its best!

NIcely located restaurant (on a bluff overlooking Swanpool Beach) serving top class sea food. NIcely decorated in an attractive nautical style - minimalist but very nice for that. Service is friendly and good - except the restaurant runs on bottled gas and had been let...More

We booked a table for 15 people. Our party included all age groups, from a 4-year-old to grandparents. We appreciated the whole experience, from friendly welcome and professional service to yummy food: scallop ceviche, goat's cheese tortellini, fillet steak and fish & chips all received...More

Stopped by for an early dinner. Lovely mid sized restaurant with amazing views of the bay. We tried a selection of their starters- scallops, mussels and pig checks all of which where delicious and artfully presented. Mains where a bit of a hit and miss....More

Lazy lunches. Decadent dinners. Sublime shellfish. Hooked on the Rocks is a quick walk away from the bustle of Falmouth town and is all about beautiful, relaxed and fun dining experiences. We overlook Swanpool Beach, across Falmouth estuary and over to Pendennis Castle and St Anthony's Lighthouse. It's a spectacular setting whatever the weather, and we love to share it with everyone that visits. It's a view that inspires. And it definitely inspires the team down here every day and influences both our menus and our ethos.Hooked on the Rocks is the place for the best Cornish seafood and shellfish. Our chefs focus on the freshest fish, using whatever our fishermen have to offer that day. And we make sure it's sustainable too. We love Cornwall and we love fish and our aim is simple: to serve up great dishes that show off Cornish produce in a relaxed and friendly environment. Our ever-changing platters are a great way to try local shellfish, our crab and lobster tank is an old favourite for crustacean fans, but we always make sure we've got a few steaks on, and vege options too.Hooked on the Rocks is great for a morning coffee in the sun, a long and lazy al fresco lunch, or the perfect way to end a hard day out and about.
