Situated right on the harbour get a window seat, great for people watching and seeing the boats come and go. The food is very good as is the service. It's a big restaurant, good for a large group.

We had lunch at the sharksfin bar. It's a great location on the harbour front with big open windows so that you can soak up the quayside atmosphere whilst eating. We had fresh clams & crab from the specials menu. It was delicious. And the staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. We would definitely return.

The Sharksfin is located on the quayside and is a spacious restaurant that welcomes dogs. The service, food and drinks that we had were great.

Great views across the harbour, only 10 yards away. We sat near the fold-back windows, so we had an uninterrupted view and lots of fresh air. The Cod & Chips was great, a good hunky slice of fish, but the chips were from a packet by the look of them, but tasty. My wife had Crab Linguini, a good hearty... More

The restaurant overlooks the harbour and has a beautiful view, especially in the summer when they open the front of the restaurant entirely to the elements. Fish is the speciality and it is well cooked. Having tried several dishes on the menu, the simple fish and chips is what they do best. Service is quick. You are unlikely to get... More

We visited after a fishing trip for a spot of lunch. The place was really clean, and the staff were really helpful. Our good was brought out quite quickly and the whole party ( 10 of us including 4 kids) were really pleased with the meal. Good value as you definitely get what you paid for.. Fresh, tasty, well cooked... More

Made reservations at the Sharksfin during our tour through Cornwall. They had our table ready ahead of schedule, and we experienced a great meal at a decent price. The service was great and the food was excellent. Try the Seared Scallop & Prawn Polenta - WOW!

My family and I visited Mevagissey for our summer holidays and booked in at the Sharksfin one evening due to its great location overlooking the harbour. The place is very stylish and comfortable and the staff friendly. The menu is varied with lots of delicious, fresh seafood (which we sampled). The drinks are expensive as is the food, but due...

This is a lovely, smart restaurant right on the harbour at Mevagissey. The menu has lots of variety, from sandwiches and tacos to burgers to salads. There is of course plenty of fish and crab options to choose from. Kids menu also great. Decor inside is smart seaside slate and blue and white bunting. Just like you see in most... More
