“Delicious, real and honest food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2010

I had lunch at Olivers today and was just delighted with the delicious, fresh, beautifully cooked and presented food. It makes such a change to eat somewhere where the chef (Kenny) clearly understands about flavours, has total confidence in the ingredients and his cooking. This just shone through. Wendy was a superb host and I could not fault the experience. I will definitely be back!

“Great - one of the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2010

MUST reserve. Just a few tables but really superb food, friendly service (but not intrusive). No space for tiny children. In my many years of dining I feel that this is one of the best restaurants that I've been to. All the products are locally sourced - and cooked to perfection

“Great fun, lovely food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

A really small, friendly place to eat. Limited menu but very well done, only complaint is that wine list is limited but seeing as the house red is very drinkable and under a tenner then this is a small complaint!

Scallops are absolutely lovely, cheese board wasn't great

“Highly recommended, outstanding food and excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2010

The food is of a very high standard and presently with a lot of imagination. You have to book at least a week in advance to make a evening reservation, surely that speaks volumes. The front of house cannot be faulted. Would highly recomended this restaurant, it is our favourite place to eat in Falmouth. Great value for money and a lovely friendly ambience. :-)
