We came across this restaurant by chance down a side street towards the harbour. It can be easy to overlook it. A nice cosy ambiance, and friendly owner helped make this a dining experience we will repeat next time we are in Falmouth.

We checked out the menu the day they were closed and decided to book for the following evening. The place is tiny, which we knew from reviews, but it is also very tired and dated. We were seated in the small, dark side room along with other diners, even though the larger room was empty. Although it was early (7pm)... More

This is a small friendly genuine restaurant where the food is excellent with an atmosphere to match. Don't expect fine dining but rather fresh sea food simply cooked to perfection and when it's sold out that's it for the day! Because of its size you are likely to end up having a conversation with your host and neighbouring diners often... More

Don't go here if you want prawn cocktail or scampi and chips! This little ( seats 20 or so) gem of a restaurant, tucked away underneath a thai(?) eateries is a real find. Crab salad was exactly that, a crab, the freshest ever, nasty bits removed, plus hammer to dissect, with homegrown tasty lettuce and tomatoes, completely simple and delicious,... More

Well worth finding for the fish - crab, scallop, prawn etc. This was our 2nd visit on a quiet night yet the atmosphere was good and the food just fantastic.

Discovered The Seafood Bar last time we were in Cornwall, 5 years ago. It was the food highlight of that holiday so back in Cornwall again we had to go back and find it. Great evening, delicious food, including home made lemon merengue ice cream! Lovely atmosphere, full of character. Will be back again.
