We're always on the lookout for somewhere for lunch around Falmouth, somewhere we can park easily. We wanted to check out future events at the Pavilion, and realised that there is a restaurant attached. You are not pounced on immediately. In some ways good, in some ways not so. There was a specials board up, but no menus on the... More

Only went in the garden underneath the pavilion however it was a great garden and there was a little gated area which was lit up blue - when you look onside it was covered in seashells which apparently have been there for 150 years - amazing

Lunch was delicious. Quiet and attractive outdoor area. Right next to the beach and a really pretty park area. The Millionaires Shortbread was the best I've ever had by far.

When visiting Falmouth, be sure to drop into the Princess Pavilion, Gyllyngdune Gardens and The Garden Room.. Great location, great views & FREE parking. An easy stroll to the harbour where you can watch everyone else struggle to find a parking place. We've been a number of times this year. After the Red Arrows display, we stayed for dinner. Cafeteria... More

We walked throught the gardens everyday on our way to the beach. Lovely and unusual plants and trees, plus shell grottos - enjoyable for all ages. Didn't attend any events there but ate in the restaurant twice! It is a large, uninviting area but with garden views, good varied menu and friendly staff we found it to be a very... More

Having written a poor review several months ago, we thought that we would give it one more chance. Perhaps, previously, we had caught them on a bad night, for our latest visit proved exemplary. Staff and table service were excellent, and food high quality and tasty. Ellie and Jasmine need special mention for their pleasantness and professional attention. We will... More

Probably one of the best places I ate in Falmouth. Nice choice of menu. No burgers or pizas! Obviously best placed for seeing a show or concert at the Pavillion.

We visited the princess pavilions on sunday (20/7/14). I have never been before and we went on this occasion with our young children to do the cornish pisky trail as we saw them advertising the trail on facebook. The gardens are absolutely beautiful and so well kept. They were clean and well tended to. Great little play area for children... More
