Seafood Restaurant
$$
“We've visited this restaurant on several occasions its one of the best low key seafood restaurants in Falmouth. Great experience but they only take cash and you must book well in advance to secure a table, oh and be prepared to get your hands dirty. Shellfish only!”

Tapas Restaurant
$$$
“Small local neighbourhood cafe by day (great coffee, breakfasts, lunches) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights it's open from 6.30 for tapas and meals. Home cooked food well made. Geared towards meat/fish eaters with some veggie options. No bookings so queue from 6.15, it's worth it! ”

Seafood Restaurant

“Hunky Dory has a lovely menu that includes fish, meat and vegetarian options - all prepared on site; many of the dishes are also gluten free or can be adapted to be so. There's a well selected wine list and you are always exceptionally well looked after. It is right in the centre of town, so a drink in the Chainlocker on the quayside is also a possibility! ”
