One of the best meals out in nearly 50 years! Superb food, service and surroundings. Would go there regularly if Ben's wasn't nearly 5 hours drive away!. Just superb and a wonderful evening! Wasn't sure about the lemon verbena fizz at first but was glad I had a glass... Wonderful culinary experience, brave choice of ingredients throughout the menu but... More

I was told that Ben's Cornish Kitchen was great but was nevertheless surprised by the quality of the food. We had the most amazing meal. I have eaten in some good restaurants but have to say this rates as one of the best ever. We began with crab and lobster ravioli - fabulous. My main course, lobster wit herb butter,... More

Have just had an amazing meal at this lovely, welcoming restaurant. Beautiful setting, friendly staff and top quality food. I really cannot give enough praise to this establishment, they use local produce and the food not only looks fresh but tastes out of this world !! Really top quality ! One tiny teeny constructive comment ... a chocolate with our... More

Truly remarkable food, excellent chef and great front of house staff. Me and my husband loved every part of our dining experience. Presentation was second to none. It has been the food highlight of our holiday here in Cornwall. Every time we come back down to Cornwall this is going to be on our to do list every time. Thank-you.... More

Ben's Cornish Kitchen is worth travelling out of your way to visit. The only downside to this restaurant is the reduced opening times. However, all food is freshly prepared, portion size was perfect, 3 courses for £18 pp was the best 3 course meal I've had in a long time. The window of the restaurant displays its many awards and...

My husband and I came here as it was number 1 on here and so close to St Michaels Mount. The menu was heavenly and beyond reasonably priced, I have paid more for awful meals out and would happily paid much more for our 3 course meal! Service was excellent and the food was exquisite! Beautiful location amd beautiful food,... More

Everything was perfect about our meal here: the ambience, the people, the wine and most of all the food. It was our anniversary and we had asked for a table by the window...and that is what we got - a beautiful view out to St Michael's Mount. Our meals were presented beautifully and it was clear that the chef knows... More

We go to Bens often as the food is always excellent, the service first class and the wine very good. Its a regular for us as we like to dine out once a month and Bens is one of our favourites.

Lovely setting, great food and very good service. We even had a table with a view of St Michael's Mount. The lobster and scallop ravioli is delicious!
