“Lovely place for lunch with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Tried the game burger for lunch and it was very tasty, only criticism is that just a little side salad as accompanied the fish pie would have balanced the plate. Service very good and attentive.

“Nice view, shame about the food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

It was not par5ticularly busy when we visited, however service was extremely slow. I ordered a sandwich which was not good. Huge thick slices of bread (which was dry) and not much filling. Also very expensive for what it was. Beautiful scenery but other than that, quite diassapointing.

“Exceptional restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We’ve had lunch here a number of times, usually choosing from the Prix Fixe menu which offer 2 choices for each of 3 courses. We chose 1 of each and have found them to be of consistently high quality and inventive, using fresh and seasonal produce. The service is very professional; friendly but efficient. With the great views this is an exceptional restaurant.

“Best restaurant in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

The Cove is a favourite place to eat when we stay in Cornwall. We have been visiting this restaurant for six years now and it is always consistently good. Arty serves the freshest catch of the day, beautifully cooked and presented. The meat eaters and vegetarians are not forgotten either with good choices to be made. Although they give the impression that fish is what they do best they're desserts are in my opinion equally as good.... Make sure you leave some space to try them!
The staff are always friendly with good advice on the menu choices and the wine. Arty's wife who works front of house is always welcoming. They also have a covered eating area for warmer dining where you get a great view!
Worth the short trip out of Falmouth.

“Impeccable Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We dined here last week (January). We have visited before and are always impressed. The service is very good and comes with a smile. The food is excellent, wine good and the setting is superb with a view of the bay. You can relax in the knowledge that everything will be taken care of, a rare feeling.
