My husband and I popped in here for a light snack and glass of wine mid afternoon. The weather was cold but dry and we were amazed to find the cafe full both inside and out. Despite the long queue we found a table for two and were served very quickly. There is a real buzz around with an eclectic... More

Went to the cafe because it was close to our accommodation but we're very pleased to enjoy some high quality food. The meat (one pork and one beef) was superbly cooked and the veggies has the appropriate mix of fluff and crunch. The baby carrots and parsnips were delicious. All this and a pint or glass of wine included for... More

We visited Gylly beach restaurant a few times over our weekend and can honestly say the food is top restaurant standard at a great price The staff know their stuff and are extremely friendly and I would especially recommend Sunday evening where you get a roast and a drink with live music overlooking the sea Heaven!!

Okay - this place is a posh self service cafe during the day - often with long queues of people waiting to order food and drinks at the bar. It's location on the beach affords it fantastic views of the bay. It offers a good basic range of food and is always busy and popular, although the dining experience can... More

Nice lunch here and very quick service given it was a busy and sunny winters afternoon. My wife really enjoyed her fish and chips and I particularly enjoyed the pork and apple burger. My only criticism really is the lack of Wi-Fi, no 4g or even 3G signal. Most places in this day and age have at least got Wi-Fi... More

Lovely location literally on the beach. Had to wait a while for a seat and service was very slow. Staff did shout to move down queue if not ordering food so shortened waiting time. Lovely coffee but only very small cup for price . Cake was good but again quite pricey! Lots of kids and dogs!

We enjoyed a tasty snack of tapas and delicious cocktails. The restaurant know their clientele and the food was trendy and scrummy.

Popped in here after a coastal walk. Great interior, quick service and good value. Would return next time we're in Falmouth!

After a lovely coastal walk and heard so many great things about this place, we found a seat and ordered our food. Now this place is run like a well oiled machine.... extremely busy but the food is hot... quick and very well presented. I went for the fish and chips and my wife had a prawn sandwich, both fresh...

Some context: I usually wait before writing a review so as not to shoot from the hip and offer more reflection. However, given that this was really a trip to the beach which also morphed into lunch I thought I'd strike whilst the iron's hot and before the fog of NYE sets in. There were 9 of us, 3 adults...
