Outstandingly good

This is the best restaurant in a town that has many good places to eat. The service, food, wine and surroundings are excellent. The waiter shows an appreciation that waiting is an art and remembers what food and drink has been ordered and by who. He also was aware of the ingredients used and what... read more

Visited this restaurant having had a great meal there last year. Please to say it was as good the second time around. Service was superb, wine was excellent and reasonably priced. Food was outstanding. The scallops were the sweetest l have ever tasted and the Duck was superb. Wish Ben could open a restaurant in Surrey....

Fantastic little restaurant in a wonderful Cornish town. The food was great, the creme brûlée incredible. I would recommend to anyone looking for a great dining experience in the area. Just make sure you book.

We've been to Ben's three times for dinner now and have had a wonderful experience on each occasion. The dishes are well thought-out, well cooked, and delicious. The wine selection is also superb. The place looks nothing at all from outside, but is very cosy once you are seated. Meanwhile, the staff are exceptionally friendly and professional. Do reserve a... More

We read all the fantastic reviews so had high expectations. Our expectations were exceeded, our meal on New Years Eve for lunch was quite simply the best meal in terms of taste we have ever had!

Three of us visited this little gem today for lunch. The restaurant is quite tucked away but well worth travelling to. The waiter was charming, efficient and very knowledgable. The food was outstanding and you could tell that the owner/chef was passionate about his choice of ingredients. The restaurant was spotless homely and delightful and the desserts were outstanding.
