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.

    Fantastic glasshouse even on rainy wild day. Staff were the right level of smart casual and attentiveness. Cosy and welcoming experience. Avocado on toast dish = divine and beautifully presented. Not sure how friends felt about fish finger butties but perhaps less batter on fish. Will be back with my husband soon!

    I love The Cove - the staff are always lovely, cheerful, very helpful and attentive. I’m vegan and am always thrilled at the amazing choice I’m given . I eat and/or drink at The Cove often and will continue to do so. Another plus is that I can bring my dog - who also recently brought two of his friends too ! My non vegan friends and family also love the food here . The presentation is fabulous and the imaginative cooking is delicious.

    Attractive restaurant inside and out, lovely decor and ambience. Service a little slow to start with, had to wait for some time for drinks we ordered prior to our mealbut once we were seated in the restaurant area all was fine. Food very good, interesting and I usual dishes, desserts sublime! Pork belly starter was excellent too. A little expensive but would visit again for a special occasion.
    Just a small detail - would be nice if one of the staff showed us to the door when we left, instead of which we had to find our coats ourselves and left without a goodbye or thank you. It wasn’t busy so no excuse really!

    Annette and her team have an amazing ability to nail it time after time in terms of top quality food and service. I am constantly amazed at the consistency, whether it be a mid week evening meal, a Sunday lunch or a large party. I am thrilled to have such a great place close to my home. Keep up the great work guys.

    I had lunch with a couple of my friends and found the whole experience from arrival to departure very relaxing, friendly and informative.
    There was plenty to choose from on the menu, with daily specials which were explained to us.
    The food was exceptional with each one of us commenting how delicious our meals were.
