I was a little dissapointed when I saw the sign go up for Zizzi's in Events Square. I couldn't help feel what a shame it was that yet another chain had moved into Falmouth. Still we own a business here and our customers need to know our opinion of the local restaurants so my friends and I went to try it during its opening week. We were a party of four adults and 5 children between 5 and 14. In summary it was absolutely fabulous and we had a great night. Bought more wine than we thought we would and really, really enjoyed ourselves. The decor is sympathetic to the area and they have one of the best views of Falmouth harbour. They have managed to achieve a good coastal/ maritime feel with some quirky touches. Silver birch trees between the tables, instant photos of staff on bull dog clips, open kitchen area, zoned areas using a change of chair or table style and a feeling of being somewhere is achieved. The water jugs, the plastic thermal glasses for the Irish coffee, the boards the breads and starters were served on and the ice cream dishes were all really cool. The details were surprising and just great. The food was good too you'll be happy to know. I ordered squid for my starter and after our excitement over the decor and masses of bread for starters we all agreed that if they got the squid right we would forever be fans. And they did get it right. Even the children tried some. We had two people wait our table. A lady with bright red lipstick who was personable and made us laugh and a guy who tried really hard to treat the children as well as the adults. The girls were absolutely fascinated by a man in the kitchen who made the pizza bases. They watched him for a good hour throwing his dough about and he played up to them which was very kind of him. In summary Zizzi was a lovely surprise and a refreshing change from the usual boring chain approach which we couldn't help but enjoy. We've already recommended Zizzis and I am recommending it now. Aswell as supporting our local privately owned businesses we'll pop into Zizzis now and again too.
