I adore fish as does my daughter and so if you are the same definitely recommend this restaurant. We both had the same for starters and mains - a mackerel and crab salad for starter and wild sea bass for main. There were also meat dishes on the menu and they sounded and looked great but we didn't try them.... More

When you walk through the door it doesn't really look like a restaurant but when you see and taste the food it really is the best restaurant in Falmouth! Fairly expensive but worth it for a family celebration type meal to make people feel special. Great friendly service too from out waitress.

Don't miss this unpretentious bistro tucked away along the High St in Falmouth. I can't believe how good the food was, so imaginative and for this sort of quality was very good value for money. Great use of local sourcing and I'd especially recommend the venison. Very friendly and knowledgable service too.

My wife and I came to Falmouth last week and every person we talk to says to try Oliver's. It is more expensive than we would usually go but I would pay double for the food again. Delicious food and congratulations to the staff.

Oliver's is the place to go in town. A little expensive so special occasions only but you get what you pay for. Amazing food from Ken (rarely seen, hidden away in the kitchen) and amazing front of house from Wendy. We are locals so they know us but everyone gets an equal welcome.

We always book Oliver's when we visit Falmouth. Ate there at lunch time and in the evening. Ken's food never fails to impress, beautifully presented and served, such an imaginative menu and the food tastes sublime. Always great service and a warm welcome from Wendy. Highly recommended.

We went there for our wedding anniversary and it was amazing, a small un pretentious place with only a handful of covers but do not be put off by that. The husband cooks and his wife services at table.

Have been trying to get in to Olivers for a while but unfortunately it is always booked up. Luckily managed to get in for my partners birthday and what a lovely evening we had. As a very fussy vegetarian it was nice to see the only option for a starter was not 'mushrooms' as you tend to see in most... More

Lunch two courses for £15 superb value. Called on off chance and easily got in for lunch but booked up all week for dinner so book ahead. We had starter of warm goats cheese and beetroot salad, and baked hake for main course with crushed potatoes and courgettes. Delicious and fresh. Menu simply written on board by door, small place...
