We say

When Rick Stein first decided to break out of his Padstow territory he did so in style, heading for the south coast of Cornwall and celebrating Falmouth’s famous fresh fish in this classy little restaurant, where you can enjoy superb battered fish, tremendous, crispy, hand-cut chips, mushy peas and all the trimmings. You could grab a takeaway and enjoy your fish & chips overlooking Falmouth harbour – they do a good-value family deal for just £24.95 – and they now also do a great choice of fish and seafood curries to take away too. But if you're game for sampling some proper fish delicacies, you should sit down inside and try one of Rick Stein's personal favourite seafood dishes – from whole lemon sole to Cornish chilli crab, seafood curry to chargrilled tuna –or choose something from the daily specials board. They do a fantastic value set lunch menu for just £11.95 for two courses, with all sorts of good stuff like grilled sardines, Malaga-style fried fish and prawn curry, and a new menu for kids too, in which Rick manages to squeeze the odd vegetable into the usual array of cod bites and chicken lollipops.  A high quality restaurant and takeaway in what is without doubt one of Cornwall’s most vibrant and appealing seaside towns.

Excellent Fish & Chips but not as good as Scarborough ★★★★☆

Enjoy your excellent fish and chips inside or out - bearing in mind that this plaice(!) is always jam packed and if you eat outside you will soon have a crowd of very interested seagulls watching you and taking their chances. Not particularly special compared to other seaside fish and chip joints but certainly a good consistency, tasty batter and everything was delicious.

If you like a buzz ★★★★☆

Fly off to this modern fish and chip restaurant. We had a lovely meal there and the local beer is good too!
