Reliably brilliant

We eat out two or three times a week, and find ourselves keep coming back here as it is one of our favourite places. One of the best restaurants in west Cornwall. The food is fantastic - of the "small but exquisite" school. The menu changes regularly, and always features good local produce. For... read more

So what to do on a Tuesday lunchtime.....My wife has got into the whole fine dining thing which is great for the pallet but probably a bit of a disaster for the wallet!!!! Luckily I stumbled across benscornishkitchen and what a fine time we had. Food is fantastic and at £20 for the set lunch. Menu brilliant value for money... More

What a little gem of a restaurant. Relaxed and very friendly atmosphere the food and drink (wine and beer) are of the highest class. The dishes we chose were just sublime and we cannot recommend it too highly. If in Marazion you must try to book a table as it is an experience not to miss. The views of Mount's... More

We have been coming here for the last year and our only regret is that we didn't make the effort sooner. We have been for lunch, dinner and a 5 course set dinner, dined as a couple and with family and friends. Every single time has been brilliant, with stunning and imaginative food, knowledgable and efficient service, good value wines... More

Firstly I would most certainly recommend booking (as we did) as there was a stream of disappointed would be diners whilst we were there. The service is friendly and efficient - the food spectacular - so many tastes to think about and so well presented, I would highly recommend this wonderful place - we will be back next year -...

Service is exceptionally attentive without being intrusive. The food ... all I can say is: Chapeau, congratulations to the chef, eating here has been a sheer pleasure.

Booked on a Thursday morning for dinner service on the Saturday, for our last evening meal in the area before leaving for home. Having read the Guardian review from last year, and lots of other positive reviews on TA and elsewhere we were looking forward all day to a great meal. Ben's Cornish Kitchen exceeded all of our, very high,... More

We originally booked for 3 people to have lunch - but ended up arriving a party of 10 including 2 babies. Our waiter was more than happy to move tables to accommodate us and made us feel welcome. The food itself was amazing and beautifully presented.

We ate here the Whit Bank Holiday weekend with friends while staying in lovely Marazion. It was our first night, and indeed first time, in Cornwall - the sun was shining and all was right with the world, and just about to get better when we arrived at this fab little restaurant. Lovely simple decor, pleasant staff and we all... More
