    Sadly poor service (too slow) meant we had to pay during main course to leave straight afterwards. But food was great again (much better than in July 2020). Some dishes weren’t available but not was the day before the second lockdown started so not totally surprising.

    This was the second time we had eaten here within a couple of months. Both occasions were for lunch. Situation is delightful, overlooking the bay as it does. Fantastic to let the dog have a run around on the beach after our meal! Staff were attentive and lovely and the food was fabulous. Particularly like the way the menu caters for all tastes and budgets too, from a simple starter to a splendid tasting menu. This meal was to celebrate my son's 21st, he eats vegan and was very pleased with the separate vegan menu choices available. We will definitely be coming back for another meal when we are next in Falmouth. Fabulous! Thank you. What we all need in these strange times!

    In view of the poor weather would have prefered an indoor table. The chicken terrine was a little disappointing but the other dishes made up for that. A lot of effort was made to accomodate my wifes lactose intolerance. In fact service was exemplary.

    Dinner at The Cove was a really enjoyable experience. We were seated at a comfortable table in a spacious dining area, the service was attentive, the menu innovative and wine list interesting. Most importantly the food was excellent. We really enjoyed the whole experience.
