Description: 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.

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 amazing, I had the Goan Curry, which met all my expectations. The menu was imaginative and there were specials of the day on the blackboard. I had been wanting to visit this restaurant for sometime and look forward to returning on my next visit to the area.

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 down by a late delivery by its supplier on the occasion we visited. It was soon remedied though and the house provided bread and olives gratis in the meantime. I would have awarded 5 stars were it not for this delay but, in fairness, it was a supplier failure.

Food was excellent and the wine/beer list very good. Nicely cooked and well presented and served. I had the fish of the day which was Hake. It was perfect!

A little bit out of town so you will need to drive or take a short taxi ride - but well worth it in my opinion!

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 particular praise. The beautiful view and proximity of a lovely beach are bonuses. A great time was had by all. Many thanks!
