Had the lamb which was excellent but so expensive (£6+ for starters, £17, £18 or £23 for mains and £6.50 for desserts). They don't put up a menu on the window so these prices were a surprise when we sat down to order! They could at least have a cheaper main at around £12. However they did serve 'free' nibbles...

We spied this petite eatery on High Street early on in our week in Falmouth. We knew it was special and decided to book in advance. We were not disappointed. Wendy gave us a such a genuine and warm welcome we felt at home straight away and relaxed into what turned out to be not only our best meal in... More

Husband and I ate here the one night we were in falmouth on the recommendation of a local. We like our food and as a treat have recently eaten in a 2star restaurant (hand and flowers). The food at Oliver's was every bit as good, if not better than there. It was local, seasonal, and above all tasty!! It was... More

This is the best restaurant ever! We make a point of booking a visit to this fantastic restaurant every time we visit Falmouth! We are always amazed by Ken's creations and Wendy's warm welcome. Outstanding!

This is a small restaurant that delivers beautiful food in a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere . It is some of the best food we have had at any restaurant, with local fresh ingredients lovingly brought together with fantastic flavours. We would recommend this to anyone who would like a special meal in a lovely part of the world.

Simply furnished restaurant doesn't prepare you for the best food in Falmouth, possibly Cornwall. Lovely welcome, great service, outstanding food.

We were treated to a taster menu which was truly exceptional. Ken preceded each dish with a little explanation as to its construction and ingredients which really helped us go identify the wonderful flavours and textures we were experiencing. Each dish was paired with a carefully selected beverage which truly complimented Ken's wonderful creations. A fabulous culinary experience. Can't wait... More
