We booked here for our wedding aniversary whilst on holiday in Cornwall and were so impressed we booked for a return visit before our holiday ended. The specials changed from our first visit - which is a breath of fresh air these days, some specials seem to last weeks now at other restaurants! - and were delicious. The staff were... More

On a recent holiday to Cornwall booked into Cove after reading great reviews about the place and it certainly didn't disappoint. Lovely decor with a "French feel to the place" also has a brilliant location with lush views and spacious room with great seating outside. Served swiftly and attentively by staff you could tell were well trained. As mentioned in... More

Visited as a large family whilst on holiday. Outdoor drinks area is lovely and we got to view the menu and order outside before we were seated. Absolutely gorgeous food and fab service. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area but best to book as it does get busy!

What a gorgeous evening, cocktails on the terrace watching the sunset, amazing food, wonderful staff and all our needs catered for. The pulled lamb was awesome, the cod was cooked to perfection with an amazing sauce and the dark chocolate torte was heaven on a plate!!!

Fortunately it was a lovely sunny day so sitting outside was a delight taking in the views and adding to the ambiance. Staff very friendly, drinks were ordered with olives and speciality bread to taste. The special was sole wrapped in prawns on a bed of spinach and cabbage. Six out of the eight of us ordered it and it... More

This could not have proved a better experience. Good and attentive service by well trained staff, a fine selection of wines, superb menu with food prepared and cooked to perfection and some luxurious desserts, all in the most charming and relaxing ambience overlooking Maenporth Beach. We could not have asked for more. Well done!

A really nice location overlooking Maenporth Beach, starting with drinks on the glass fronted area before moving inside to the restaurant area. The service was good with nice touches like providing blankets whilst we were sat out on the patio and taking our drinks to our table when we moved inside. The fixed price menu is a really good option... More

My partner and I managed to secure a last minute reservation here as it is our favourite place to go whilst in Falmouth. It did not disappoint! We had a fantastic meal, the food was delicious, the wine was great and the service was very good as well. I had scallops, monkfish and the velvet torte, which were all amazing.... More

We were lucky to get a table in the early evening because The Cove was fully booked, but the kind staff squeezed us in. The location is wonderful, not heaving and with a view over the bay. There's not much to say about the food and drink beyond that it was all fantastic. Pulled lamb starter and the duck were... More
