The Maritime Museum Café
This has great views. When you have visited the maritime museum once, admittance is free for a whole year.
Situated in Events Square. Try the tapas with one of the many cocktails on offer.
Five Degrees West
Award-winning and highly recommended. It is just across from Custom House Quay. This recently refurbished restaurant overlooks the harbour.
The Chain Locker
You can find the Chain Locker on Custom House Quay. This pub is one of the busiest and best known in Falmouth. For a variety of local beers and ales with very good pub food visit The Chain Locker. On a summer's evening sit outside on the quay and enjoy far-reaching views over the estuary.
Harbour View Café
Only a short walk from the apartment on Arwenack Street. It is the place to go if you want to start the day with a good old English breakfast.
For vegetarians try the home made pancakes with maple syrup. Sit on the terrace and take in the views whilst you dine. Open from 8am.
Good for steaks and fish. It is situated on the ground floor of Maritime House, and has a great position and views.
Next door to Harvey's. It has good inexpensive Italian cuisine, with a noisy and busy atmosphere.
Opposite Trago Mills. Our favourite Falmouth restaurant for that special evening.
Very near to Hunky Dory, Two Ten has exceptional fish dishes. A very pleasant restaurant for any occasion.
The Cove, Maenporth
This restaurant comes highly recommended from other past residents. It overlooks Maenporth Beach. It might be expensive but perhaps good for a special treat!
The Three Mackerel
This restaurant sits on the cliffs at Swanpool, overlooking the beach and with a view of Pendennis castle in the distance. It's a great spot for an evening meal or just a lazy afternoon with a bottle of wine and tapas. If your after an evening meal It may be worth reserving a table to avoid disappointment.
Red Lion, Mawnan Smith
An old thatched pub in a local village takes you back to another age. Great pub food!
Pandora Inn, Restronguet Passage
Another Picturesque pub / restaurant right on the water at Restronguet Passage, Great pub food the fish & chips are to die for..!! You can drive here or get a water taxi. A very popular place! You can't reserve a table so get there early!
Smugglers Cottage, Tolverne
Another ferry trip along the river Fal to Smugglers Cottage at Tolverne is well worth it. This is a small thatched 500 year old cottage where the speciality is cream teas. It was used as a base for American troops before they set off for the D Day landings in the Second World War. Eisenhower even visited the troops there!
Trengilly Wartha, near Gweek
Is a country pub that serves great food - very popular with locals. Could be a good place to eat if you're visiting the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek.
Rick Stein's new fish restaurant on events square opening soon.
