We found Ben's Cornish Kitchen a bit by accident, although being reasonably local we had heard from some friends it was a "place to go". We were just in time for a late lunch which was superb. Even being at the end of service and the menu had changed (they do say on the menu that this may happen and... More

We are local and have visited this restaurant several times before and found it to be excellent. We had a pre-wedding dinner there on Saturday 16 August with our son, his fiancee and her parents who were visiting us for the first time. When we booked online we had mentioned that it was a spacial occasion and we were given... More

The menu contains freshly sourced innovative ingredients combined in a way you will see nowhere else. The staff remembered my sons allergy from the reservation and were able to suggest menu items for him. As everything is freshly cooked, they were also able to remove the feta from his lamb dish. They also provided the cocktail special for them using... More

Booked this from tripadvisor and what a good choice it was. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had a charming waitress and even though it was fully booked the staff handled this very smoothly. Loved it!

We stayed at Marazion and ate at Ben's Cornish Kitchen on Wednesday 6th August having booked in-line via their web site. We were not disappointed. Prices are high but the quality of food and service was exceptionally good - A meal to remember! Lemon Verbena & Gooseberry fizz made for a great introduction to what was to follow. Starter Wafers...

We ate here as a family if five on 12th August 2014. I cannot fault either the service or the meals we enjoyed. The menu was not extensive but offered good choices across all tastes. It was clear that the kitchen really does know its trade here. Every dish we tried was beautifully presented, prepared expertly using high quality ingredients... More

We tried Ben's on the off chance and were lucky enough to get a table. Its a small restaurant but clearly run by someone who cares about the food they send out. Menu wasn't huge but with a enough choice for our visit (though perhaps not enough to be drawn back again within the same week or two). The homemade... More

You must try this place for yourself. We stayed in Marazion for 2 weeks and had such a brilliant meal the 1st week we had to go back in the 2nd week. The food and service are both exceptional. If it wasn't 400 miles from home we would visit more often!!

We tried to get booked into Ben Cornish Kitchen, but it was fully booked for days in advance. Went on the web site and they had a table booking option. Looks like there was a cancellation, because we got in on Saturday night. We were not disappointed. What a lovely place, with a nice warm atmosphere, friendly attentive staff and... More

In his August 2 review of Ben's Cornish Kitchen in the Guardian, he says he didn't want to risk spoiling a great meal with the "Sweet Curry Plate" dessert. He missed out big time. At my wife's birthday party there on July 25 this year one of our party chose it and we all agreed it was spectacular. BTW, I... More
