Have been to this cracking little restaurant a few times now. Can't beat it.the food is so fresh you can visualise it swimming around the harbour only a few hours before eating it. There is nothing we dislike at The Wheelhouse.The atmosphere, the staff always happy and very helpful. I am a novice at dealing with spider crab but with the help of the staff I am getting very good at it. The lady who owns this place is Tina. A winning formula. Please don't change it. Can't wait to go back for my husbands birthday with friends on 6th April. You gave probably read other reviews please note no credit cards,cash only. It's number 1 in Falmouth and so deserves to be? if I could give more than five stars I would.

We have been coming annually for the last 5 years and this restaurant is one of the biggest pulls that we keep going back to Cornwall year in, year out. We absolutely love this place - the seafood is so fresh and treated with absolute respect. We took our little boy with us and he tried everything - scallops, prawns, lobster and crab - mighty tastes for a less than two year old. It was lovely to be recognised by some of the staff even though we only go once a year. I only wish it was nearer to where we live as it's our favourite restaurant in this country! Love it!

Managed to secure a book a table for four. Lovely welcome. The dining area is eclectically set out with lots of odd tables and chairs ,hangings,paintings and bric a brac combining to create an attractive boho feel. Our welcome was both warm and professional. This a shellfish restaurant. Fabulous oysters,perfect scallops and a fantastic house white. Could be a major come back for Muscadet!

If you can manage to book the wheel house then you must go. Shellfish is top notch, simple but amazing fare. Bring cash! No cards

It is quite an event to go to dinnner at the wheelhouse ! The place is so busy all the time and all the year round that tables are like gold dust !! It's really not surprising ! The restaurant is quirky and has a great atmosphere. Tina , the owner is warm and friendly with a very attentive team of staff all very nice and jolly. It is a small restaurant with a great Cosy ambiance. Now the food ! Tina has created a winning formula, a very simple menu ,quite short but perfect if you like seafood! The quality of the ingredients is great all local and super fresh ! With your crab , scallops , mussels , prawns or seafood platter you can have salad, fries and bread and butter , simple and perfect ! If some of your friends do not like seafood? There is a vegetarian option . It's a brilliant place to go to with friends quite informal . The wine list is good and reasonable. I would definitely recommend dining there but beware book well ahead to get in !!
