Very friendly owner, chef and staff. Lots of little 'extras' thrown in between courses unexpectedly, everything was intruiging and delicious, beautifully presented and better than expected. Simple, cosy and homely but with a great atmosphere, a real winner. I went with 5 others and we had a great evening with amazing food, no complaints from any of us and will... More

We have been visiting Oliver's since it first opened and have always had a excellent meal. I had Sole last night and it was beautiful. Loved all the complementary courses. Well done to Ken, and to Wendy who is front of house and does an excellent job. Looking forward to visiting again next Easter.

I feels like family here what with the hand-written menu boards and the personal service. Everything is fresh and seasonal but that does not mean common. Up-to-the minute combinations and presentations.

Oliver's was a great find - wonderful food and really friendly service. The chef even brought up a few little extra bits of food himself! I had the scallops for starter and the brill for main, both of which were amazing and my husband had the monkfish for starter and the duck for main which were both equally impressive. The... More

Back in Falmouth again for a weeks visit and took a chance on Oliver's in the High Street as we had not been there before. We were lucky to get a table as you really do need to book here as the covers are limited. We just went for main meals, I had the John Dory and my wife the... More

Booked for Saturday night for a birthday treat for my partner, never having been before. This has to be the best restaurant in Falmouth if not the whole of Cornwall. The service from front of house is so so good, attentive and knowledgeable but in the most amazing informal and friendly style. The chef came out to introduce some canapés... More

Quite simply the best restaurant experience we have had in a very long time! From start to finish ( from making the reservation over the phone to a late and very very satisfied if rather reluctant farewell) this was an exceptional experience. The smiling welcome and great service from Wendy and Megan was charming, warm and thoughtful . The food... More

Wendy is front of house and makes you feel so welcome and after only a few minutes you feel as if you have been friends for years! The food is exceptional everything fresh and locally sourced, and...
