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 celebrated our first anniversary at the Cove on Sunday for their fabulous Sunday lunch. We had the warmest of welcomes as this was where we held our very intimate wedding lunch last year. We had walked from Falmouth on the coastal path to the Cove and walked back to Falmouth. We had a wonderful lunch starting with drinks in the informal seating then we were seated in the conservatory with our dog. Wonderful views of the beach on such a stunning day. We had the special fish starter which was sublime followed by an excellent Sunday lunch, the chef had even made me a gluten free Yorkshire pudding so it couldnt have been better. My husband had a delicious and beautifully presented desert but I abstained and had a coffee accompanied with a rather naughty chocolate flake. Thank you for your wonderful service and excellent food. We will be back!

    Excellent. Very pleasant and knowledgable server.
    The ambiance was great and was the view out to sea at dusk!
    Favourite dishes were definitely the starters.
    Surprised there was no Pino Grigio wine on the list for our guest.
