Caribbean food at its best, great food in a wonderfully authentic atmosphere. Caribbean-born John has a unique take on British mixed with Caribbean flavours, making it one of the most exciting restaurants in Falmouth.

2. Harbour Lights

Harbour Lights, Falmouth, Forever Cornwall

Proper fish and chips, fresh off the local boats in the harbour. Harbour Lights is all about sustainability, and with their flair for fresh, fairly caught fish, it is a popular stop for many visitors. You can choose to eat-in or take away (just watch out for the sea gulls).

5. The Wheel House

Shellfish is the order of the day: market-fresh mussels, scallops, crab and prawns served in clam-like Portuguese metal dishes with chive butter, chips, salad and a choice of house red or white wine. It’s rare to get a table at this place, but it’s always worth a try!

Please note: sadly the Wheel House will be closed from 28 May 2022 until Winter 2022. Please check their Facebook page for more information.
