We always eat here when in Falmouth. It’s unassuming from the outside and easily missed, but book a table, you won’t be disappointed. The crab toast and mussels with some chips are our favourites dishes. Highly recommended.

Found this little gem by chance and had the breakfast. Was so yummy, would highly recommend. Lovely view over the harbour just added that extra bit.

We had a fantastic breakfast here. The food was amazing and the service was lovely. You must try it when in Falmouth. And ask for the eggs benedict...yummy!

What novel idea. Never complain about how your steak is cooked again by cooking it yourself. They bring out a nuclear hot piece of granite with your seared steak and some garlic butter. Cut a slice, throw it on with some butter and Bob's your...More
