Without a doubt it is always the food that is the best part of dining at The Cove. Hadn't been for a while but just as good as before.

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.

    Very friendly and attentive staff without imposing themselves. Comfortable and pleasant decor and furniture. Excellent menu with good range of dishes. Went out of their way to look after our two grandchildren (age 4 and 7).

    Amazing!!! My vegetarian special was really yummy, so nice to go somewhere where the veggie option isn't an afterthought. My husband had the seafood feast special, and it was a work of art!!
