Our son booked us all in for a Saturday night to celebrate our anniversary. The menu had a great selection of dishes, I chose the scollops, hake with crab meat and creme brûlée. Each dish was fabulous, subtle flavours and delicious. Portions just right and excellent presentation. A nice selection of wines also. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and... More

We decided to book Olivers after reading the great reviews it has been getting. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it has an intimacy due to its small size and the staff were really lovely. The food was excellent (maybe the desserts were the weakest course) and the price very reasonable - especially when dining on scallops and turbot! It... More

I visited Oliver's last year with my Brother as a Birthday treat. He's been there several times and rates this as the best restaurant in Falmouth. Although the place is quite small, the staff make you feel that you've been invited into their house which makes you feel one of the family. I had scallops and orange salad for starter... More

Just returned from family meal at Olivers. Turbot and scallops in a wonderful sauce for me, fillet steak in Serrano ham with brie and a red wine gravy for my husband and Tregothan veal for my son. Puddings to die for. The most friendly staff we have experienced. It's a small place so book early. Just got a call as... More

I have just eaten the best liver and bacon I have ever had. Well presented, right size portion and the most tasty gravy you could hope for! Liver was tender and bacon still had a touch or crispness. Just about to tuck into poached pears and berries and first taste tells me it is another good choice! Made to feel... More

Delicious, attractive food, freshly cooked served by the Chef's wife. It's small and very popular so you need to book in the evenings.

The best Hake in town! Always excellent food and service. Great little restaurant just a stones throw up the hill from the Post Office. Comfortable, relaxed and friendly. This place is so popular you will probably have to book to get a table in the evening.

I’m all out of superlatives when it comes to describing the experience we had at Oliver’s. It was quite simply exceptional and the perfect way to start our week’s holiday in Cornwall. We arrived quite early however Wendy greeted us warmly and was happy to seat us immediately. The restaurant is small and understandably hugely popular as many people arriving... More
