    Visited at lunchtime so busy and noisy. My husband ordered a bucket of crayfish, as he loves seafood, well quite disappointed a lot of work for very little reward. My fish and chips, (haddock fish of the day) was delicious, though. Friendly efficient staff.

    Living locally I visit this restaurant quite regular because of its beautiful location and I like to take guests there because of its location. However unfortunately I now only go there for the coffee. Too often I have been there and the food has been cooked really poorly due to lack of care in the busy periods and I find Gylly Beach cafe one of the most unfriendly places to go in Falmouth. They don't take criticism of their food at all well. I've had burnt fish, raw eggs, hair in my breakfast, undercooked Lobster, cold meals and you just don't expect that when you pay the heavy prices they charge. When meals have been sent back or complained about I've been made to feel most uncomfortable about it... So now it's not somewhere I choose to dine, which is sad in many ways... But alot better for my pocket

    First the negative - its shame that the menu on their website isn't up to date, as we'd planned our visit to be able to enjoy the Seafood bar which was on the menu online, when we went is was no longer a dish that they were serving. a shame. Anyway, after the disappointment of not being able to order the Seafood dish, we opted for the linguine and Octopus Burger, both dishes were really tasty and well presented. We had a table on the terrace over looking the beach which was a lovely setting, all set off with a great bottle of prosecco. Service was really friendly, big smiles all round!

    Ideal and super friendly cafe restaurant for that but extra service all with a friendly smile. Great place to go with friends family and of course the dog. They are well catered for.

    A very popular beachside cafe no seats outside so we chose to sit in. We had 2 cups of tea and cake very nice but pricey.

    This cafe was recommended by our B and B owner. The food was very good, and it is very popular. We got a little table facing the beach and really enjoyed watching the kids run around and play in the sand. The staff was great too.

    An excellent location right on the beach serving excellent food in a friendly atmosphere with all tables overlooking the sea. Great for families with kids on the beach or those coming from a dip in the sea.

    Visited here twice during our week in Falmouth. First for a coffee and then for lunch. Both times it was very busy which is no surprise as the setting, food and service was very good. Will definitely return if we find ourselves in Falmouth again.

    popped in for a breakfast before leaving Cornwall, and what a superb spot, passed many times never been inside, it was perfect, right on the beach side with a good choice of breakfasts. My wife went for the veg full breakfast and I went for the normal full english although busy served in a reasonable time frame and was very good, different style to most other cafe bars, but this was for the better. Enjoyed fully, and well worth calling in, they appear to cook all day, so plenty of chance for any time of day call in

    This restaurant was recommended by the owners of the Chelsea House Hotel (See my review) as a place you could get a good meal and take your dog with you. Had lobster as my main course whilst my family members had the veggie burgers. For dessert we had the ice-cream sundaes, I had the brownie version. Lovely food. The only issue I had was that we had to sit outside because we had the dog with us and the wind chill factor made it quite cold. The waiting staff took pity on me and turned on one of the heaters near our table, not that it warmed me up! Stil the food was good but it soon gets cold eating outside. Toilets were clean. Foof mid price. I'm sure it would have been a better experience if the evening was warmer.

    Taking a stroll along the seafront we called in at The Gilly cafe for a coffee. We then continued our walk to Swanpool and returned for lunch. On both occasions we managed to get a seat outside, bit breezy! Apart from the views and very pleasant atmosphere at The Gilly cafe the service is of a high standard and the food slightly different to the norm and of a good quality. Highly recommended.

    The food and service here is excellent, enjoyed this place immensely, very handy as don't always want to go into town. Perfect evening here and everyone welcoming. The best steak I have ever had and the Lemon Posset is to die for

    Lunch menu was very limited, even with the "specials". Four of us had Catch of the Day, Haddock and chips. The chips were ok, the batter on the fish was very dark brown and not atractive or particularly pleasant to eat, but we had waited a fair time so ate. When the waitress came to clear (no contact meanwhile) and aske if all ok, one of our party said not really and explained why. The waitress response was "Oh dear". We left. That was that, so thanks, but no thanks, not for us.

    Went here for the evening on Saturday.We didnt book a table so sat outside to eat. Lobster was amazing. When it started to get dark lights and heaters came on and staff brought blankets for guests.

    Friends who live in Falmouth took us to Gylly's for dinner on Saturday having reserved the best table in the house (18) - local knowledge always helps. So you can imaging their displeasure to find a group of people seated at the table when we arrived at the prescribed time. The management quickly realised their error and instantly supplied a free bottle of vino of our choice to consume whilst they rearranged the seating in the restaurant to create a table for four next to the desired table. The food was great (Langoustine all round) washed down with a second bottle of PicPoul. All in all a nice experience combined with great food and service. You can see why it was so busy.

    I have visited Gylly cafe on numerous occasions as it's actually one of my favourite venues to eat in Falmouth but my recent visit just last weekend has changed son wanted cheesy chips. We asked if they did cheesy chips and the answer was no we don't do that! My partner then asked if they could grate some cheese on top of the chips for us, obviously we'd pay the extra no worries. The answer was...the chef WONT do that!!! Ok that miffed me very much. Whatever happened to keeping the customer sweet..even a little boy! It wouldn't have been any skin off their nose to make cheesy chips. It seems that friendly chilled out cafe that once was is trying very hard to be a poncey restaurant. Massive shame on their part. I wanted to name and shame even though the food is good they need to be a bit more customer/child friendly!!!!

    I was very much looking forward to breakfast today at the beach cafe. I ordered the vegetarian breakfast which at £8.50 is not cheap. When it came, it was on the same sized plate as that of my friends, but contained about half as much food as theirs. A very measly plate of food, frankly. One half of a small tomato, one sausage,a couple of potato things and a rubbery, unpleasant tasting fritter and just one slice of bread. No egg, no beans! My friends said that their breakfast was very average and not worth the money, even though they had significantly better portions. Much more effort needed I feel.

    Stopped by to enjoy the beach without going on to the sand. Lovely menu catering for a drink or snack to full meals.
