We visit this venue often but eat as rarely as possible. In my opinion expect to pay £10 for food that elsewhere would cost £7 and £15 for a meal that would normally be £10. The menu is not extensive and items are described in what I consider to be pretentious terms. So why do we visit, well the live... More

What a place its all going on there fab restaurant and a theatre as well. The meal was superb we had fresh crabs they we're spot on and very very good value for the money there's a bar if you just want a drink. The whole place was spotless. I highly recommend this place.

Beautiful spot in Falmouth. Family friendly. Lovely atmosphere. Massive outdoor space where you can eat and drink, as well as plenty of seating inside as well. The menu is of a good size and the food is tasty. Service is friendly and efficient. You can even walk up from the beach through their gardens which are stunning. All in all,... More

Great spot for a drink after enjoying a walk through the gardens. They also serve food and there is often live music in the garden. Plenty of tables to soak up some rays with a view of the sea.

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...
