Falmouth has some incredible restaurants but the problem is, everybody knows it! Make sure you book in advance to get a table at Olivers, it’s the name on everyone’s lips. Owned by Ken & Wendy Symons, their outstanding reputation and 5 star passion for food means there’s no such thing as a “typical” dish. Expect to book 4-6 weeks in advance for a Friday or Saturday evening.
Another (not so closely) guarded secret is the Wheel House. Hidden in Upton Slip, away from the main town, the Wheel House is a hideaway unlike any other. Known as seafood central, this place offers luxurious lobster as well as fresh crab, prawns and oysters like you’ve never tasted before.
Situated near the maritime museum is Rick Stein’s fish and chips - with seabirds in earshot, there could be no better place for fish and chips than Chef Stein’s seafood restaurant and takeaway – perfect for a cosy evening in your boutique Falmouth cottage.
For those with specialist diets, Wildebeest is Falmouth’s bespoke vegetarian and vegan eatery. Japan and Mexico are influences on their alternative menu, and encapsulated Falmouth as a relaxed, welcoming place to spend time with your loved ones.
