Superb

Don't know what the last person expected. Perhaps they equate good food with volume? We had lunch and simply, it was staggering good. The Waldorf was a great twist on a classic. The slow cooked lamb perfect n every way. My wife had the mackerel starter followed by the pollock. Her comments were... read more

Great service with attentive staff but the food was very patchy. Starters are tiny, tiny things put together by tiny hands using microscopes, perfect for an anorexic on a diet but hardly a mouthful and really rather dull little efforts that sang of trying to be edgy and 'foody' just for the sake of it. However the main courses were... More

Living not too far away, we tend to come here as often as we can. We were there in Ben's very innovative phase which sometimes worked brilliantly and sometimes was a little shy of the mark, but nevertheless always a fascinating experience. He has changed his style a little now, and the innovation is still there but in smaller areas,... More

Great local food, cooked fabulously and served with care. The environment is simple and welcoming, given the quality of the cooking, presentation and service this was great value for money.

We visited Ben's Cornish Kitchen on Friday night as part of a Stag Weekend for a civilised meal. Service was great and the food was outstanding. All courses were fantastic and complimented by a great selection of wines. All in all, one of the best meals i have eaten.

Booked a table after reading many reviews and was really looking forward to it. Arrived to see they were fully booked so was glad I had reserved a table back in July. We were shown to a table upstairs where I had to sit on a wooden bench which wasn't great or very comfortable. Slightly disappointed. We ordered scallops which... More

This restaurant is a firm favourite. Every time we dine here the food is superb. The menu changes every day and it is always a difficult choice what to eat! Food is always fresh and delicious. The staff are warm, friendly and accommodating. Book a table you won't be disappointed. Outstanding.

Excellent food. The service was first class and we had a very warm welcome. The food is more on the lines of fine dining. Fantastic views across to St. Michaels Mount.

Great food, book ahead to avoid disappointment! Had main course and dessert, al good. Deserts not as good as Guards Head! Parking is an issue, which they need to sort especially for evenings!
