Residents of Falmouth should prepare themselves for a new flavour in town as John Duncan, of Cribbs Restaurant, opens a new tapas bar/café, Bahama Mamas in Killigrew Street.

The new tapas bar is a logical progression for a restaurateur who has developed a well-earned reputation since 2007 as one of Falmouth’s most visionary chefs and business owners.

Bahama Mamas is a tapas style café that fuses food from all over the world in mouth-watering flavours and a menu based on sharing small dishes with friends and family. Specialities include Caribbean rotis, timeless British classics with a twist, fresh seafood, a vegan menu, happy hour cocktails and local craft beers.

The food is served in small dishes to encourage customers to try some new flavours and recipes. The ingredients are sourced locally wherever possible. Whatever time of day you arrive you will find great food from breakfast, to light lunch, to afternoon tea and, of course, the tapas-style dishes.

The opening represents a new chapter, which John Duncan says focuses on making sensational food more accessible in an inspiring and contemporary space, so that everyone – regardless of lifestyle, age, gender or place of origin – can feel welcomed from the moment they enter.

He said: "Our commitment to providing great food has led to the recent change of business. Falmouth is a vibrant and bustling town with a thriving food scene. There is already a wonderful array of restaurants here, and I believe that Bahama Mamas will offer an exciting new option for diners to share and try out new dishes, there is something on the menu for everyone."

In addition to their locally-sourced food ethos, and in a move to achieving their green aspirations, Bahama Mamas is one the most recent businesses to become a champion of the Plastic-Free Falmouth campaign and is also a ‘water re-fill station.'
