"If there’s a place to dive into local fish and seafood, this is it. Executive chef Nick Hodges is a Cornishman through and through, and consequently leverages the area’s natural larder to maximum effect."
"Dining in The Water’s Edge restaurant is a hearty affair, with all produce sourced from the South West. Executive chef Nick Hodges attempts to highlight the very best of Cornish fare with his rustic fine dining."
"With the water a toe’s dip from the table, we would have justified seafood at every course if convention had allowed. The tian of Cornish crab dressed went down swimmingly to start, as did the meaty hunk of monkfish on fiery chorizo and spinach hash that followed. Shimmering mackerel further demonstrated Nick’s forte with fish, while a tangy fruit crumble smothered in crème anglais and crowned with an apple doughnut brought the evening to a delicious close."
"Executive chef Nick Hodges brings together a fusion-focused menu, with dishes like the baked flaky hake fillet with saffron, lemon and crab risotto and for vegetarians, the hearty homity pie with baby carrots, tenderstem brocolli and a delicious roasted onion puree."
"The food was exquisite. An impeccable seafood grill selection that was so light and tasty it could almost have been caught that moment and barbecued on the beach in front of me. There was a charming honesty to the dishes but at the same time a skill that made them so impressive."
"A previous haunt of salty sea dogs and weary wanderers, The Greenbank has watched over Falmouth’s historic harbour for almost 400 years. And while its guests are now nomadic weekenders instead of weathered captains, Cornwall’s fleet of fishermen are still honoured in a menu swimming with the latest catch."
