Brilliant. The restaurant is excellent and in a superb location just outside Falmouth next to a beach. The food is beautifully cooked and the service first class. A must for anybody visiting the area.
CP | Leeds
As always the Cove excels at what it does; provides a beautiful setting, very comfortable surroundings and delivers perfectly excellent food.

The Cove is a particularly relaxing spot in which to enjoy a meal. Watching the sun set, and the waves crash as you relax with a glass of wine and a great meal is an experience hard to beat.
Hello! Magazine Online
Amazing Food! We have eaten here twice recently and the food was fantastic on both occasions. We will definitely be returning.

For beachside dining, look no further than The Cove.
Lonely Planet Magazine
Two fantastic meals with you in one day, it can't get much better than that. We have your recipe book and it reminds us of some really good times at Maenporth Beach.
PB | Isle of Bule
We have been eating at The Cove for some years and have always enjoyed top quality food and service. The staff are delightful, friendly and knowledgeable. We just wish it was closer to Bristol so that we could go more often.
PI | Bristol
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.
