Most enjoyable venue for our 47th Wedding Anniversary lunch and the food was super as always. All the staff were very polite and helpful and wife especially enjoyed the Crab Crouton | Crab Mayo | Mango Salsa & Caviar.

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.

    The food was excellent, as was the service. Mackerel started tasty and spicy, cod well cooked and Pavlov dessert a great end to the meal.

    Wow what a place. From first entry to paying the bill the experience, location, food and service were all wonderful. We decided to have a main course and deserts, I had the fillet steak, my wife the prawns. Both well cooked, great taste and delicious. I had ice cream for desert, my wife choose and amazing dish with a cucumber tasting ice that was out of this world.Not sure about the cocktail making as my wife ordered off menu and it was not that good but they offered to take it off the final bill. Would definitely return.

    First visit. Overall very good. Booking was easy. Atmosphere very good, imagine it would be superb on a warm summer evening. Good aspect over "The Cove". Menu interesting and varied. Fixed Price menu is excellent value, assuming you like the choices available, which I did. Food presentation, obvious that time and trouble and had been taken. Service very good, staff were excellent.

    The starter we had was very good, the main course - two of our party had the lobster and ling which they said was very nice, the other two people - one had the monkfish which was pointed out to the Waitress was undercooked and a very small portion, the dish itself was boring. the other person had the fillet steak, again it was pointed out to the Waitress the plate it was serviced in (similar to an old fashioned soup plate) was nearly impossible to cut the steak in, the steak itself was very small and tough At £26.00 one would have expected more. The desserts were fine

    Very nice food, great location. Nice and spacious and good decor. Excellent service. Had couple of cocktails (excellent) on balcony before moving indoors to eat. Recently been to west coast of Barbados on holiday and this food was better than their top restaurants for a snip of the price.
