Fabulous

Had a late lunch at the Cove today. What more can you want? Stunning location, fabulous food and exceptional service. There were 8 of us and we had a variety of food and drink. All of it was first class. Every bit as god as the food was the service from the lovely waitresses. Thank you to you all... read more

We had dinner in the Cove restaurant. They were extremely busy but managed to give us a table at 9pm. The ambience, food and staff were absolutely first class. The level of sophistication in the food is exceptional, both in flavour and presentation. We had pre-dinner drinks, three courses, 2 bottles of good wine, coffee and brandy. The bill was... More

We discovered this restaurant by accident, having walked from Falmouth along the cliffs. We stopped for lunch and found it a very agreeable place to eat. Friendly staff, great food for lunch and really accomodating service. Returned for an evening meal and continued to be impressed. Excelled on all aspects. Thank you for such a great experience. We'll be back... More

We visited on Valentines evening and had the most wonderful time. The warm welcome was just the start of a superb evening. We were shown to our table, our coats taken, drinks menu,s produced and just the right amount of time allowed for the gents to peruse the beverages on offer before our waitress appeared and our choice noted.

Food was lovely. Small selection of great children's dinners too. Lovely location, which goes without saying.

We went to check out the place and ended up having a fantastic lunch with drinks. Great views and really good staff I might have to check out the evening menu!

We visited the Cove today as a family of eight on our annual Sunday lunch treat. We were greeted by an extremely friendly waitress who took our coats and showed us to a more comfortable area where we ordered drinks. After about thirty minutes, we were shown to our tables. We had already ordered our food and it didn't take... More

We have been many times as we are always graciously greeted on entry and offered to be shown to table or to sit by the fire for a drink before the meal. The excellent wine list and menu are brought over and a list of the day's specials read out in an interesting way. The scallops are our favourite and... More

We have been coming back to Meanporth for a number of years and we always go back to the Cove for either drinks or food. The food is very good and you can now just chill on the terrace with a drink and watch the world go by. very relaxed vibe to the place and the food never disappoints so... More

We look forward to a visit to The Cove when we come to Maenporth. It's one of the best in the Falmouth area.
