Had a lovely meal in the Garden Room and Bistro which is part of Princes Pavillion which looks out to sea. The food was really excellent, could not fault it! Freshly prepared with fresh vegetables and topped with Pea Shoots, very tasty. This is a good venue as it has a theatre attached and the gardens are lovely to look... More

I had my first meal at princess pavillion yesterday. I paid just under £20 for 2 x Chickpea burger and chips. Unfortunately, it was all quite tasteless. Frozen chips and mash potato-like burgers. What a shame, as the atmosphere is so nice...

We loved the food here. So much so that we ate here twice in four days. Great value and good portions. Our little boys loved running around the pavilion and we could see them easily. It's a family friendly place. I ate the goats cheese salad which was sooo tasty. And the fishcakes the other night. I would recommend both.... More

Lovely setting and very good value for money compared to other nearby venues. Had lovely lunch with mum for Mother's Day although would question Yorkshire puds with lamb and didn't like my gravy/jus put on for me. Had to send son's lunch back as he doesn't do gravy at all and very young waitress questioned this. I said I had... More

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.
