As usual the food and waitress service was exceptional, not to mention the situation of the restaurant. With views like that I know why I live in Cornwall. Food served always has an unusual twist - scallops with apple??!! Excellent.

An idyllic setting perched on the edge of Maenporth Beach, Cove Restaurant & Bar serves refined European flavours, and a vibrant selection of tapas. Offsetting the crisp dining room, guests can enjoy dining on the terrace during summer.

Wonderfully fresh and locally sourced, the Cove menu compiles an extensive selection of artisanal produce. Presenting inventive creations, owner and head chef Arty Williams was named Chef of the Year in the Cornwall Life Awards. Alongside delicious fresh oysters from the neighbouring bay, Cove Restaurant favourites include goats’ cheese and sweet potato samosa with pesto dressing.

Tempting dessert flavours include the famous chocolate torte with honeycomb, or panna cotta with rum-poached figs. Family-friendly Cove Falmouth also offers a tasty selection for kids.

As well as mentions in the esteemed Michelin Guide and various local culinary awards, Cove Cornwall enjoys a glowing reputation in the area. In an infinitely tranquil setting, central Falmouth is just 10 minutes’ drive away.

    We are four friends who meet regularly, but when it is one of our birthdays, the other three treat the birthday girl.This happened to be a special milestone birthday celebration so it was quite important. We could not,or wish to, fault a single thing. The welcome by the staff was warm, they took our coats and showed us to a comfortable area to catch our breaths. The restaurant had a lovely buzzy atmosphere and we were attended to promptly and efficiently. Everywhere was spotless, the glasses were shining clean - a great start. We were given information about the menu and the specials which helped us make our choices, which was difficult because of the range of interesting dishes.

    The food was superb, both in presentation and taste. Wonderful! When we complimented the waitress, she told us that she loved working there because the chef was so brilliant and she loved getting the compliments to pass on. what a happy lunch.

    I have been here innumerable times an d will continue to do so. The ambiance is lovely as are all ther well-trained staff. I often come for the spring time 2 course offer but have been in the evenings with summervisitors. The menu is always varied, tempting, well-cooked. Well what else can I say! (Loved the pigs cheek starter as did my friend; a meal in itself)!

    An excellent lunch on Wednesday, we all had something different but I had Ginuea Fowl, scrumptious. My Grandaugter is a vegan and she was given a very wide selection another big plus. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful all in all a very lovely experience.
