I took my mother there for a birthday lunch and from start to finish it was brilliant. The food was divine, the service impeccable and venue was gorgeous. I couldn’t have been happier and neither could my mother.

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 love The Cove - we never have a bad experience there and this was no exception. It was my birthday and they remembered that. The meal was very good, sticky prawns back on the menu; my how we have missed them, and the duck and scallops top notch. This scores on so many fronts - you can come off the beach and sit in the conservatory or you can make a reservation for the restaurant. You can have a decent glass of wine, not something that is barely drinkable or you can chose higher quality as far as your credit limit will take you % stars not enough. . Don't everybody go at once as we will have the Porthcurno or Kynance Cove beach problem, although I don't think Poldark was there the night we were. 5 stars not enough. Oh and the staff are really good too.

    We have been coming to the Cove for around 12 years and still love it. The food is consistently superb with outstanding service.

    This was the best meal we had in Cornwall. We been a couple of times before and the food seems to get better. Having dined in Michelin star restaurants The food here is even better. Well put together menu - great balanced of flavour and just the right size portion.

    We had a very enjoyable evening at the Cove. We had the cod and scallops and the steak which were both beautifully cooked and extremely tasty. The evening started with a bottle of fizz and nibbles on the terrace where we stayed until we were shown our seats in the restaurant when our food was ready. Very attentive service throughout the evening. We will definitely be returning.

    Wonderful views out over Maenporth beach to Falmouth Bay, great food with attentive staff, not rushed like in some other popular venues. Only gripe is because it’s so popular you need to book early and that in itself is a measure of how good this restaurant is.

    A place I cannot fault, always had a superb meal there. I love the atmosphere of the glass room and who wouldn’t love the views. Just one tip for anyone dining there......make sure you leave room for a sweet. Love the place.

    Love this restaurant. Lovely fresh food. You can turn up with your 2 children straight off the beach or in your glad rags and you’ll be made to feel equally as welcome.

    I took some guests whom I wanted to treat and we were all very happy. The food was lush and reasonably priced and the service was delightful. The sun shone too. We shall certainly all come again.
