This is a small place which is made by Wendy who does all of the front of house in a unique and very friendly way. Five minutes in Oliver's and you think you have been her best customer for a decades. And, when the food arrives, you wish you had been because its always fresh, local and so inventive in... More

What a wonderful little restaurant. Food and service excellent. Hostess Wendy is just lovely, nothing to much trouble. Booking is essential, we had to book two weeks in advance! Highly recommended.

Been here for both lunch and dinner recently and both times had a lovely meal, great friendly service and a nice selection, always love the big menu board they use and bring over to your table. They also now have some of the largest gin glasses we've seen! Food is all locally sourced and seasonal and excellently prepared. If you... More

Really lovely, welcoming atmosphere and the food was amazing (especially the mousse for dessert). We liked that the menus were fixed price (I think we did 2 courses for £15) and you could choose which courses you wanted from that. Everything seemed to come from local suppliers where possible. We saw 6 course gourmet nights (including drinks) advertised for £50... More

I'm a local and we have a good selection of restaurants in Falmouth, but this restaurant is top of my list. We've taken friends here who are committed carnivores, who love fish and are committed vegetarian. No one has ever been disappointed. The menu is ambitious, the food is exactly as you hope it will be, and the warm welcome... More

We had such a great evening here. This restaurant really epitomises everything great in Cornwall (even the accent)! The service was superb. We had the scallops for starters with an awesome salad. For mains we had the duck breast and beef both incredible quality ingredients cooked to perfection! Definitely a restaurant not to be missed!

Bit quirky, reasonable for proper food. Bit off beaten track compared with many other but only few mins from high street.
