We booked in advance, and when we arrived there was a notice on the window saying they were fully booked.... There was a freshly made 'cordial' which two of us had, without the 'fizz' suggested! Lovely. The meal was a delight, really interesting balance of flavours and textures. £106 for 3 of us including cordials and wine; 3 courses. Definitely... More

We booked here before we travelled to Marazion and I am glad we did as it was very busy. We had a table for 7:30 and had a drink whilst choosing our meal. My husband was disappointed because they had already run out of scallops but he chose the duck liver pate and loved it. I started with the lobster... More

Service relaxed and friendly, food was,without exception, excellent - all three courses. Ben has certainly upped his game over the last couple of years.

The food is sublime and I can honestly say I haven't tasted food this beautiful and inventive since my visit to Bistro 23 in Alnmouth. Dining here is beautiful and calm, there are no airs and graces, it is very relaxed and unhurried - with beautiful music in the back ground and views out over the harbour, it's a real... More

My wife and I celebrated our 44th Wedding Anniversary here last night. We had been before, so we knew it would be good, but it surpassed expectations. The chef is very inventive, and quite honestly I could have had anything from the menu and enjoyed it. As it was, I had seared scallops with chorizo jam on a pea puree,... More

We came into the restaurant for lunch and asked if it was ok to bring in a our small dog - they were only too willing to be hospitable. The food and service is very top quality and the kids meals were terrific value

This was our second experience with Ben's Kitchen. Once again we were not disappointed. The food, and service was faultless. I don't eat meat (fish is ok) and often feel restricted with the menu, but have to say that I was impressed with the options. The crab and lobster ravioli as a starter was just yummie!! Have no idea how... More

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
