Called to make a reservation for dinner on New Years Day as the website indicated that they would not be closed (closure was given as 25 to 29 Dec). No return call, but expecting to find it open, we drove the ten miles or so from our holiday cottage, parked up and walked up to find a sign in the... More

Like many others, we were directed to Ben's Cornish Kitchen by the Jay Rayner review; in fact, this was a major reason for making the journey to Penzance. We booked the restaurant weeks in advance and this was just as well because there were no spare tables on a Friday night early in January. We were warmly greeted and shown... More

My wife and I visited Bens just before Christmas. The food really was very good, the service was also very good. The sad thing was the fact that the upstairs section seemed to lack atmosphere. The only background noise was a woman with three other people, she insisted on talking loudly and explaining that their visit to Pepper Pig World... More

First time visitors today but will definitely be returning. Lovely little restaurant with a cosy feel to it. Waiter was friendly. I had the Gorgonzola Mousse which was lovely, the squash risotto was gorgeous but the curry plate dessert was amazing!!!!! If I had only had that I would have been happy. Wonderful flavours that I have never tasted with... More

Chef had saved skate for us just pan roasted, but it never tastes like that out of my pan!!! And we... More

My wife and I took our 4 daughters along to our fave restaurant last night - no pressure Ben and team! I needn't have worried as the girls were in awe of the food, service and atmosphere. The highlight was the Travaskis Lamb - Wow. Thank you for such a special night.

We had booked in advance for the tasting menu which was fantastic. Started with a very flavourful beetroot dish, I wish I could explain how tasty this was! Then really excellent crab and lobster ravioli with the thinnest pasta I have ever had, it was superb. We then had the venison which was so tender and beautifully cooked pink. Finally... More
