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.

    Wonderful location and views. Stylish restaurant decor in keeping with the setting. Excellent friendly informative service. We really enjoyed both meals we had. The mackerel starter with smoked salmon and ginger was particularly delicious as was the Fal Bay dish of monkfish, scallops and hake. We didnt have dessert because we are on a low carb, low sugar regime and were full anyway even without having any potatoes (our choice). Finally to mention the super touch of the wasabi nuts that came with our gin and tonics pegged to the side of the glasses with a miniature peg. Delightful!

    We have visited The Cove a number of times and again this visit did not disappoint. The food and service was excellent and the dessert was to die for.

    The Fal seafood selection was a dream, wee do not get such fresh seafood in Wiltshire. Liked the setting & the view was superb. Relaxed atmosphere & friendly helpful staff, disabled parking too. I am sure when there a more people it would have more atmosphere. We came from Greenbanks, on a recommendation from Charlie Choke, an excellent choice.

    Always a pleasure to eat at this restaurant, the food and service are consistently of the highest standard! The location right on the beach and the smart but casual decor and ambiance make this our favourite restaurant in Cornwall (the food is always the stand out feature of the experience) Book a table you won’t be disappointed!
