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 excellent, service average and did not feel very welcomed. Service also slow. Saying that, it was busy and they have been short staffed. Day was hot and the restaurant was very hot. All 4 of us felt the heat. No air con or fans and doors and windows were insufficient. That said, food excellent, though a little pricey.

    Perhaps a little expensive for the quality of the food. Had a kind of ramshackle feel, which I guess is part of the charm. Wait for starters seemed like a long time, whilst the gap between starters and mains didn't seem long enough. Food was very well prepared and presented, service was a little slow but very friendly.

    An excellent evening. Good food and good service. Can't believe we haven't been there before having passed it many times - may be because you don't expect a good seafood restaurant in Truro.
