What a great night!!

Cocktails outside were first class, waitress was brilliant, view was spectacular, Food was special, wine perfect and we were not rushed at all in our 3 hour graze. Cannot recommend this place highly enough - Thank you for a brilliant night out with the family

The views from The Cove are second to none. Even on a stormy day I could imagine they would be impressive. We ordered tapas which was some of the best food we've had down here. Scallops, battered prawns, macaroni cheese (the best ever) and today's special, which was beef strips. There's a children's menu which should cover most tastes as... More

We visited the Cove and my daughter fancied a risotto, this was not on the menu so we asked if it would be possible to prepare her one. The waitress checked and to our delight they cooked a fantastic risotto which was delicious. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, presentation was lovely and service exceptional. Great ambience and would highly... More

We we recommended this restaurant by friends and by the owner of the B&B we were staying with in Falmouth. I'm so glad we took their advice. This establishment is first class in every way. It's not pretentious - they welcome all including walkers and beach folk, the food was gorgeous - the cod was delicious and we loved the... More

we popped in here after cycling from Falmouth along the coast. A nice place to relax and get some refreshments. The food was good but in the afternoon there is only a tapas menu and was slightly difficult to find something to have, more my pickiness than anything but slightly annoying. A slight difference between the attention to detail from... More

Had dinner one evening sat in the glass dining area overlooking maenporth beach where there were people still playing in the sea and it was past 8pm. Bliss. The food was excellent, well cooked and delightfully served. The waiting staff were great, knowledgable about each dish and friendly and efficient. If you get chance to go, I would highly recommend... More

Booked at the last minute so had to eat at 9.15 so it is a popular place for fine dining. Better to book and eat earlier and get the views of the Maenporth cove. We had the 3 course set menu which was good value for quality food. Bread slices came with the drinks which were a tad expensive. Main... More

Lunch at The Cove was the highlight of our holiday and if you are in the area, do not miss out. You need to book and the service, ambiance and food could not be better. If I didn't live a 6 hour drive away, it would be a regular.

First full day of our stay in Falmouth and this place really set the standard at a high level.Not expensive when you consider the quality of everything.If we return to Falmouth in the future,this will be the first place...
