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...

We found Oliver's while take a stroll around Falmouth, the lunch time menu grabbed us with so many things that we wanted to order. The service was friendly and nothing was too much hassle, the food was excellent and came within in good time, the wine and cider was delicious and there was a feel that you could spend the... More

This is a small but lovely, friendly restaurant which was recommended to us so we booked well before our holiday. It is fully booked a long time in advance. Great food and a surprise and delicious amuse bouche came while we waited.

It's fair to say this restaurant has earned it's reputation as the best in Falmouth. We popped in for lunch and had the set menu, accompanied by a nice bottle of white. Really good value given the quality of the food. And well done Oliver ' s for sourcing all of your ingredients locally. If I had to suggest one... More
