We visited mid October on a quiet Tuesday night, the place was full. A short menu, always a welcome sight, a lovely welcome from Wendy who runs front of house and then the superb food prepared by Ken. A small, but very good, wine list and most reasonably priced. The emphasis was on seafood of course, but leave room for... More

We had a lovely lunch, the food was good. Service if very (possibly a little too casual) but hard to fault. The food was great, unusual and thoughtful. I have been for dinner in the past (it'd hard to get into) but lunch was just perfect. Good value, and felt like a real treat. (Fri 17. Him + S&J TRAC)

Had a great meal here in September - food was delicious - Wendy is a superb hostess with the mostess - Ken, her husband is the chef and they make a great combination.

A great place to eat. The food is excellent and the service friendly and well-organised. The venue is small so advance booking is a good idea. One of our party was gluten-free and his needs were well handled. We have also had evening meals at Olivers in the past and they have also been outstanding.

A small chilled out Cornish restaurant with exceptionally good food, noisy with great staff and owners. We only managed to get a table for five because of a cancelation, book in advance, well worth going. Five people having three courses, with plenty of wine and a tip was £220. Highly recommended, and will go back

Ate at Oliver's as one of a large group celebrating a birthday. The front of house staff were efficient and friendly. Very chilled-out, good-humoured atmosphere despite the pressure of delivering meals to a party of 25 so that everyone ate together. The food was absolutely first-class. Great tastes; great attention to detail. Seemed a labour of love. Great performance from... More

I enjoyed my 70th birthday in the company of friends and family on 24th September 2014. From the moment I contacted Olivers to suggest a menu to the moment of excellence at the dinner, Ken the chef, his wife and brilliant organizer, plus a cheerful and efficient team, made the occasion most memorable. The choice of food was creative and... More

We visited for lunch - very reasonable at £12.95 for 2 courses. The game croquettes were superb, and as one diner said 'the salad dressing was to die for'. My wife had goats cheese for starters then Hake, which again was excellent. I opted for belly pork which as ever melted in the mouth. It is testament to Olivers that... More

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
