They all looked happy and couldn't do enough. Food was served very quick with no waiting and was truely ansum. We always stop in when we are out staying on... More

Visited Harbour Lights whilst staying in Falmouth on the recommendation of previous visitors to the 5 Puffins Holiday Let. Did not disappoint and we had an excellent meal. Highly recommended.

This is better than Rick Stein's place nearby, and a lot cheaper. It does the usual fish-and-chip options, with no frills. I've never actually sat in the restaurant part - the thing to do is buy a takeaway and eat it in the Front pub on the quay down the hill - they're happy for you to do this if... More

Ate on a Sunday evening 7pm had a lovely meal sitting at the window overlooking the water. Three of us had a meal. Two large haddock and a small cod meal. One tea and two alcoholic drinks total cost 40 pounds. Great meal and noticed they won best chippy in uk 2017. Would return.

Overlooking the river Fal, this is a lovely spot for lunch. Fish and chips were very good, but I'd give the mushy peas a miss next time, they weren't very tasty. Service was prompt and friendly, and the small cod and chips was very good value.

Hi Susan, thank for the review. We have given our mushy peas recipe another look to see if we can make some improvements. Sorry we didn't WOW you on this occasion with our peas, but glad you enjoyed your visit to Harbour Lights. Come and try out the peas during your next visit. Thanks for the feedback. Pete More

We popped in here for a takeaway meal, we were staying in the area but had arrived late and the hotel where we were staying could not acomodate us for food unless we ate in the bar which was a bit loud and noisy to take kids in on a Friday night. That's fair enough, it's a bar after all!... More

The restaurant looks out over Custom House Quay. On the evening we visited it was a bit drizzly but it is still a great setting. Many tables have a window view. The fish n chips is very well cooked and good value. The menu is not fancy or extensive but they do what they do really well. All of our... More
