I have to eat here EVERY time we come to Falmouth as the food is outstanding and for once a sensible price compared to other places of a similar standard. The service could not be any better by the (I think) co-owner. I have eaten here 10+ times and have never even had an average meal.

A really great lunchtime menu, beautiful fresh food, interesting flavours but nothing too outlandish, generous portions and really modest bill. Tends to get booked up well in advance (deservedly!) so if you can make it for lunch then you might get in sooner! The lady who served us was lovely, very friendly but not intrusive into our conversation when we... More

It is not often my dinner companions, one of whom graduated earlier that day, end in tears. It is difficult to know where to start, but the impression was of a chef on his own and out of his depth. The room was stuffy (until I asked for the fan to be put on) and very loud, so conversation was... More

We had heard that the restaurant was excellent and always had at least one vegetarian dish. We booked for five vegetarians including one who was gluten free. The response was fantastic; we were given our own special menu (hand written) with a wide variety of choices on it. We all chose different things; each one was imaginative and delicious, and... More

My partner and I had our first lunch at Olivers. Three courses of delicious, perfectly cooked food. The avocado salad (see pic) was incredible and the chocolate just sublime. The price was under £20 for three courses and the glass of Chenin Viognier accompanied my plaice perfectly. My partners salsa verde on her hake was the best I've ever tasted!... More

We had booked this restaurant on a recommendation several weeks before we went on holiday and were not disappointed. Everything was perfect and we would highly recommend it. The menu choice was varied and quite unusual. Everything was prepared freshly and so could be adapted for gluten, dairy, egg intolerances and for fussy eaters too (like my son). The presentation...

For two and a half years we have been lucky enough to own a flat in Falmouth which we use for ourselves and summer lets. In all that time we have tried and regularly failed to get a booking at Oliver's, admittedly at weekends. Finally we managed it and visited with our 20 year old student daughter. Wendy, who owns...
