Visit Hooked On the Rocks in Falmouth for mouthwatering fresh seafood dishes and ocean views

Perfect for: A seafood lunch date

Hooked On the Rocks is perched just above Swanpool Beach, on the outskirts of Falmouth, it’s best visited on a sunny day, so you can enjoy the view of this popular cove. We did just that, sitting on one of the wooden picnic benches on the terrace. Inside is also simply decorated, with blue wood panelling, velvet and leather sofas, and wide windows so you can look out at the view.

The restaurant recently made the Michelin Guide for its locally sourced seafood. We decided to order the seafood platter for two, and were not disappointed. It was heaped high with squid, langoustines, mussels, prawns, cockles and more, all cooked to perfection and served in a piquant garlic and tomato jus. We peeled apart the prawns and mussels with our fingers and soaked up the sauce with homemade sourdough bread, warm from the oven. The platter was more than large enough for two, and the freshness of the ingredients really elevated the dish for us.

There was just about space for dessert; a homemade pear sorbet with seasonal berries, and an affogato. The pear sorbet in particular was a delicious palate cleanser, while the affogato had just the right amount of kick to it!
