Ben's is Beautiful

We've been to Ben's since it opened and were worried about its expansion into upstairs, but no need! The cooking is first rate, simply some of the best available in Cornwall. Its not the cheapest place, but is really very good indeed. A lovely mix of meat and local fish dishes, great wine... read more

Although we greatly enjoyed the food at Ben's, the amount of time we had to wait for it was far too long. We were seated at 7:30 (the time of our reservation), but didn't receive our appetizers until almost 8:30. Our entrees took another twenty minutes to arrive. When we asked our waitress why it was taking so long, she... More

Late review, for the best evening meal I've had in Cornwall (and yes, I've been to all the expected places and a few more!). The food was fantastic, the service was friendly but unobtrusive. It truly felt as if you were visitng a friends for dinner, until the food arrived. I don't have any friends who can cook that well... More

Every time we visit this part of Cornwall we HAVE TO visit this excellent restaurant. It is in a beautiful position opposite St. Michael's Mount and the menu is always full of mouth watering dishes made from fresh , local ingredients. The meals are quite pricey but for a delicious treat of flavours and textures it is worth it. Each... More

Was recommended this place by a very fussy friend so had high expectations. Sadly couldn't get a table with a view but never mind. Service was good mainly very polite smiley young girls. My roast beef rump was the best meal I've had a very long time - perfectly cooked medium rare with lovely accompaniments finished off with a gorgeous... More

Just exactly that! Friends had recommended Ben's and a visitor's birthday was the perfect reason to try this attractive fairly small restaurant. Service was charming and knowledgeable but not at all intrusive and the pace of the evening relaxed. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. I was driving so only had a spritzer but my friends had the... More

We were recommended this place by our B and B owners when in Cornwall and was so glad we managed to get a table. We used the simple online booking system and on the day arrived at the restaurant and were greater by the polite staff and ushered to our table. Water and fresh bread were then placed at our...
