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.

    Delicious food beautifully cooked and presented.

  • ((((( 8 October 2019 by Peter from Constantine

    Took 2 friends visiting to lunch at The Cove, despite one being vegan and my wife and I currently on low-card keto diets. Menu offered excellent choice of suitable dishes which were as innovative and tasteful as the ‘normal’ dishes we usually have. The location is pure Mediterranean (on a nice day). Could not recommend highly enough.

  • ((((( 7 October 2019 by Jessie from Falmouth

    Really lovely meal, good menu selection which was also reflected in the fixed price option. Lovely atmosphere and reasonably priced (apart from the table water at £3, would have been polite to be offered bottled or tap as an option)

    Great starters, inventive mains and delicious puddings - daily specials, dairy free options and excellent choice of wines.
    The Beetroot and Goats Cheese and Crab Crouton wouldn't have looked or tasted out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant

    Stunning location, great service, food was amazing! Loved it all

    Delicious meal and lovely location. The pork belly main course was the highlight for me. Although we sat inside as it was a chilly evening, the glasshouse exterior seating area would be amazing on a warm day. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and attentive.
