We had a really lovely meal, it was fairly quiet, being midweek, but the service & food were excellent.

Specialising in seasonal seafood, Falmouth Bay Seafood Café is a restaurant set within the Grade II-listed Castle Villa. Enjoying views out onto Truro River, the restaurant also showcases a curated wine list and serves non-fish & vegetarian options.

Start with a pre-dinner cocktail such as the ‘Shugborough Shake’ comprising fresh raspberries, strawberry liqueur, vodka, elderflower & fresh lemon, then indulge in a hearty meal of fresh seafood. Favourites on the Falmouth Bay menu include Cornish crab in a velvety sauce, finished with herb crumbs & parmesan, classic bouillabaisse with shellfish & local white fish, served with parmesan cheese, rouille & croutons, and surf & turf consisting of a prime cut medallion of Cornish fillet steak, king prawn & lobster tail, dripping in a garlic butter sauce, served with salad & chips.

To finish, indulge in a decadent dessert, like slow-roasted figs in honey, topped with Greek yoghurt & pistachios. With white-washed walls, clean, minimalist design & large windows letting the sun stream in, Falmouth Bay restaurant is a sophisticated, nautical-themed space.

Falmouth Bay Seafood Café in Truro is a 9-minute walk from Truro Rail Station.

    Food -imaginative menu excellently executed. Generally superb. Cornish blue soufflé sublime combined with gingerbread and pear. Mixed fish platter delightful mix enhanced by crispy fish cakes.
    Malbec very disappointing.

    Good atmosphere, good service and attention to detail in most cases. Food was excellent - just minor details. Water given to us was tepid so had to ask for ice, but they then brought us a chilled jug. Should have done that in the first place .My friend and I had bouillabaisse, which was good except the liquid was tepid. We brought this to their attention very gently. Overall a good experience. Shame it is up for sale!!!!

    There were 5 of us eating. Cocktails and starters were lovely, as were the desserts. 2 people had mussels and there were quite a few not open, however this was raised and we were offered more to be cooked, we were also given a bottle of wine. One of us is also has a Gluten allergy and this was catered for really well. Staff were very friendly.
