REALLY GOOD FOOD

This is a lovely restaurant, with amazing lunchtime value. The owner is the chef, and his wife serves at table with a friendly word for all. Beautiful food - well done Wendy and Kenny

Oliver's is rated as the best place to eat in Falmouth according to Tripadvisor. I've not eaten in restaurants in Falmouth before, but if this is the best, then the rest must be pretty bad. We ate lunch, and the quality of the food ranged from bad to OK, but the overall impression was that the chef was trying things... More

We were all greeted with a great smile from Wendy who immediately made us feel very welcome and comfortable. Our son booked the meal for us all to celebrate his graduation. Oliver's was highly recommended and we were not disappointed!!!!!! We are all vegetarian and were delighted to sit and eat high quality high presentation and deliciously tasting local foods....

Lunch today was exceptional. Imaginative combinations of ingredients, superb presentation and most importantly a perfect mix of tastes and textures. We loved it! Thank you so much for a wonderful meal. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere and excellent service, make this a place we shall recommend and return to when we can.

Booked a meal at Olivers for our Golden Wedding Anniversary. We loved the whole meal, we couldn't have booked a better restaurant. Thanks very much to the Chef and the lovely friendly serving staff.

Visited Oliver's with friends and had high expectations following their recommendation. I was not disappointed. I had an excellent crab salad with mackerel to start followed by the monkfish and hake main. Both were excellent. Although full, I had to have a dessert and the creme brûlée was an easy choice for me. It was perfect, a beautiful consistency and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful lunch yesterday. The food was delicious and the service excellent. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and sat at a window seat, watching the world go by on the busy Falmouth street. Very pleased that we booked first, as we saw some people turned away because there were no more tables for lunch; the restaurant is... More

Went here for anniversary meal with high expectations and they were certainly fulfilled. The free appetizers were amazing just made you want the main course more. The mains were fantastic every mouthful was a delight. The deserts certainly were not to be missed. To add to that the staff were charming too. Overall a place put at the top of... More

The food and wine was absolutely delicious! The lady running Oliver's was so friendly and the service was excellent. We managed to get a table in the window at lunchtime - 3 amazing courses for £21.50! You need to book to be guaranteed a table...
