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.

    Our lunchtime meal was fabulous, I had the everything on the speaciks board and the starter of mackerel with a butternut squash veloute was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. The service was impeccable and we would highly recommend visiting The Cove.

  • ((((( 8 February 2019 by Nicksmum from Cornwall

    Very cosy and welcoming, was shown to a comfy sofa to wait for the rest of my group. Attentive waiting staff ensured that we had drinks , and we ordered while sitting there and in my case opening birthday gifts. All the food we had was superb, I had scallops with Parma ham, plus the crispiest chunky chips. Followed by a generous portion of pavlova complete with sparklers!
    Waitress was very thoughtful, even brought a vase for my flowers, and foil to wrap the stems in afterwards.

    My guests and I were made to feel very special, and I would recommend to anyone.

    The Cove offers fine dining and has never once let us down. We have been regular visitors for a number of years: it is top of our list for restaurants in the area. The kitchen caters brilliantly for special diets, offering individually tailored dishes and is happy to include these in its special promotions. The menu is varied, imaginative and beautifully presented and the setting is delightful, with views over Maenporth Beach. The staff are warm, welcoming and very helpful.

    This is my favourite restaurant in Cornwall. The view is spectacular and the food always very innovative and superb quality. The service also is excellent. The food is not over-expensive for the fantastic quality, but the drinks are a little on the pricey side.

    Had a lovely lunch and the food and service was excellent as usual. It's always a treat to come to The Cove sadly not often enough.

    This Restaurant is always good for its position overlooking Maenporth Beach.
    The Staff are excellent! The decor very sophisticated and relaxing! The Food is excellent but unfortunately the choice is a little repetitive on the main menu,and the specials are excellent, but limited !? Will be having a break from here for a while ??
