So good I don't want to share it with you

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... read 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.

You will not find better food than this in Falmouth in fact it is difficult to know what to choose on the menu. The food is always interesting and features excellent combinations of flavours and local produce to excite the palate. The front of house staff are in the capable hands of Wendy whose enthusiasm cannot be faulted and displays... More

Exquisite food, wonderful service, Oliver's never disappoints. Make sure you book early to ensure you get the date you want. Well worth it.

We are regulars at Oliver's (when you get a table). Yes it is that popular with locals and visitors. Service from Wendy is efficient and friendly and very Cornish. Surroundings at this former shop in the High Street are simple in style, but atmosphere is just great. A real buzz always . Our last visit here was for a 6... More

Stayed in Falmouth to see 1) Daughter in University 2) Celebrate birthday party. Looked on trip advisor and Oliver's appeared to be the stand out restaurant in Falmouth. I called to book and advised the restaurant that my daughter was a vegetarian...which was no problem for the owner and that we were in Falmouth to celebrate a birthday. On arrival....I... More

The finest food I have eaten in Falmouth - the best pudding on the planet - culinary heaven. The shadow in paradise was restricted legroom under the table ( poorly designed table ) & a desperately uncomfortable chair. Wendy, front of house, brilliant & welcoming- Kenny, probably the best chef in Cornwall, please, have a serious look at your chairs.
