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 are on Holiday at Maenporth and we have already had lunch here twice and we have booked again before we return home.There is a good choice on the menu and also the special board.The hake was especially good as was the plaice and the mackerel. We are never disappointed and always look forward to our visits.The staff are friendly and helpful.

    Visited The Cove to celebrate my Mum's 70th birthday and the experience was fantastic. The staff were incredibly attentive, not only on the day but also in the run up. We had an excellent table by the window, with amazing views of the beach, which we were allowed to decorate with balloons and confetti. The food was incredible - but what impressed us the most is that the chef can adapt any of the meals to be gluten free. The chef also prepared an amazing desert platter, with every item gluten free. We were so impressed and will definitely be back!
