This place could be great! The setting and veiw is lovely, the space cool and calm (and the reason this is a two and not a one star review). We aimed to stay for brunch but after a terrible experience with a surly older waitress...More

We stopped in for an early dinner and were delighted by the views as you come away from the road, round the back overlooking the harbour. The staff were friendly and there is both outside and inside seating. The dinner menu is fairly small but...More

Great place for coffee during the day. Just had Dinner, I had an excellent Goan fish Curry and my Wife had the Catch of the Day, both were excellent, with good house wines. Best evening meal in Falmouth so far during the holiday.
