“Perfect place but not for breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

We have past this place many times over twenty years so today in search for our Sunday English BF here we were.
The Restaurant is on the first floor with a splendid view of the marine vista,interior is great fun and offers pretty much all that you would need for a night out.

Staff of one is very pleasant but we are alone apart from a groaning morning after chap sprawled on the bar.

When the two BF's arrived I have to say it looked pretty poor for the £8, SHR standard BF at £6.75 also struggled to perform with hard tomatoe and runny egg, when I asked where the toast was the poor girl looked startled......seems toast was not included but if I wanted some she would ask the kitchen.

So would we return for BF,No certainly not.

Hi,

I have personally investigated this matter, we feel you review & photos are highly unfair.
Our breakfast menu CLEARLY states what it comes with. There are other breakfast dishes which are served with toast e.g Smoked Salmon, scrambled egg's & toast.

Rachel (the waitress) has notified us that 'nothing' was mentioned of your extreme upset regarding the breakfasts.

Kind Regards
Nicolle Pliatsikas

“Always good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

Out of town, easy - and free - to park, and good reliable food, with Cornish beer on draught. Have eaten here many times and it never lets us down. Saturday evening phoned late in the afternoon and got a table for two that evening. A good menu and an excellent range of specials. Food individually cooked. Their fish stew is excellent and partner's plaice was equally good and came with chips and salad. Stew came with bread and had various white and shell fish and mussels. Starters - would recommend the thai spring rolls, and the puds are large and very tempting. Beer on draught - they have Betty Stoggs and Tribute - plus others. And there was a special deal on a wine by the glass. Paid £57 for two - two starters, two specials, one pud, two drinks and two coffees, and felt that we got our money's worth compared to some Falmouth places.
A good meal all round, lively atmosphere, and excellent friendly service. When the weather is good there is a verandah to eat/sit on and look at the boats in the marina. You can eat or just go for a drink. Tends to be used by locals or people off the boats.
Dogs are allowed on the verandah or in the entrance hall, but not in the main restaurant.

“Reliably Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

My husband and I have had lunch here a number of times and always enjoyed it very much. Last week we had our first dinner and it was great. The relaxed atmosphere remains even though the place was absolutely packed. The service is friendly and efficient and the food is fresh, tasty and well presented. I opted for a Chicken and Chorizo Kebab with a salad and it was very good indeed. The week before I had a Spanish Omelette for lunch and it was the best I have ever had! The view over the Marina, especially on a sunny day, is lovely. Give this a try!

“Great place to unwind. Ace service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

The marine bar in Falmouth is a favourite for relaxing overlooking the marina. The food is brilliant and is great value. The sea bream was one of the best I've had.
