First visit to Wheelhouse tonight and moved to write my first ever review. This little restaurant is close to perfect. The staff are so friendly and the atmosphere is great but all of this is more than complemented by the wonderful food. The scallops were the best we've ever had, the prawns fab, spider crab (warm in garlic butter) scrummy and the garlic, ginger and chilli prawns just lovely. Lots of bread to mop up and a delicious Sauvignon Blanc to boot. Who could ask for more?

Well what can be said about this restaurant that has not be said before. Yes its certainly an experience that should not be missed with friends to share the food. The shoulder to shoulder feel about the place ensures that you are not alone in there with opportunities to view on adjoining tables what to order. The food was plentiful and flavoursome and I would recommend a bib when eating the crab. The bowl of 24 large shell on prawns in a spicy sauce were a delight which were regarded by my wife as un-shareable. Its a must do restaurant whilst in Falmouth however make sure you book in advance.

This small unusual restaurant situated near the waterfront but without views off the main drag in Falmouth, is always busy and often difficult to get a booking, but persevere as its definitely worth it. They probably have about 25 covers (no two chairs are the same), really friendly owner and staff, a limited menu and very small wine list, but their shellfish is so fresh it virtually crawls onto the plate and is simply but well cooked and quickly presented.
The restaurant provides good value for money and is well worth a visit if you can get a seat

This very special shellfish menu just enough on the menu to wet the appetite, special people who run the place and the food is exquisite the only problem is getting in you have to have a booking this speaks volumes, the mussels are to die for can't wait to visit again.
