I have paid the Alverne restaurant lots of visits over the years and have always been served the most excellent food and drinks. The quality of their food is stunningly consistent. Lovely coffees in the morning, excellent lunches, one of the best sources of homemade pastry in Cornwall and most enjoyable, perfectly cooked dinners - all served with a smile... More

Living in Penzance, the Alverne is the place we go to for a special meal. We always go in the evening and it's best to book in advance. The food is well prepared and served. I usually have a fish dish while my husband goes for something meaty and we have never been disappointed. Those who complain about small portions... More

We came for dinner on a Friday night. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside has a good atmosphere. Small menu but they have a good range of specials on the board. I had mushroom crostini to start and the salmon from the special board to start. My husband had prawns and duck. All were lovely... More

An excellent place for coffee and pastries or to eat, good breakfast menu. Lunches served from an interesting menu with good specials daily. Also evening meals. Can be rather noisy at coffee time as its popular with people who seem to talk rather loudly to one another!! Having said that it has a good vibrant atmosphere! Staff are helpful and... More
