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.

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

We visited because it was the nearest restaurant to our B&B and we were very pleased to find that the food far exceeded our expectations. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. Excellent value for money and a really pleasant dining experience, we will definitely be going again.

I don't usually write reviews but as a good customer of the pavilions I am disgusted at how the staff have been on my last 2 visits. I went with my family for lunch and initially everything was fine. We were seated and our order was taken, it was a simple order of 3 sandwiches and 3 children's meals. However... More

I was visiting Falmouth again and had to try the Garden rooms again to see if it was as good as last time and it was an excellent experience again, friendly welcoming staff and a superb fresh salad with a lovely glass of wine in tranquil gardens. The desserts are amazing and should not be missed. Many thanks and I... More

Had an evening meal here just before watching Martha Reeves and the Vandellas. Head waitress was most helpful initially. Food ordering was slow, waitresses were non-communicative and stone faced, although the food was very good and flavoursome. Asked for a jug of iced tap water and received a plain jug of water and no glasses. With a bit of staff... More

This restaurant is in a unique location and serves great food. We recently enjoyed the 3 course Sunday lunch menu, which offered a good selection of choices at reasonable prices. Each course was presented to a high standard. The service was also very good, even though it was busy there were no delays serving the food.

Went to the Garden Room on a recommendation. We had a superb lunch, all the items on the menu and the special list were home made. I had the salmon and hake fish cakes and my wife had the risotto. Both were excellent, lovely and hot and great value. Went for a walk afterward through the gardens and down to... More

Turned up on the spur of the moment after walking up through the gardens and spotting the diners tucking into their Sunday lunches. Asked if a table was available as it was very busy and late in the service. Our waitress went and asked the chef and promptly returned to say that they could squeeze us in although they had... More

Half the menu not available and even the entire menu would have been limited. Service not great, left waiting without attention. Food itself was nice though. As i say, the concert next door after, was better !
