Award-Winning Restaurant in Falmouth

A small slice of paradise

At The Cove, we are now in our seventeenth year of operation.  Over the years we have built up a band of loyal customers, thanks in part to the kind of word of mouth praise that even the biggest of advertising budgets just can’t buy.

So what is it that keeps people coming back? We believe the food, of course, is a major pull. Our Chef Patron Arty Williams is a Cornishman who, having worked in New Zealand and Australia, was keen to return home and champion Cornwall and its produce.

While we strive for the food and wine on offer to be of a particularly high standard, The Cove’s location is its true unique selling point. Something of a hidden gem, the restaurant is nestled in a picturesque inlet with striking views across Maenporth Beach and Falmouth Bay. Despite being less than ten minutes’ drive from Falmouth, sitting out on the terrace, gazing at the horizon, feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of town life.

Our restaurant enjoys a relaxed atmosphere and welcomes all customers with open arms, whether you’re looking to celebrate something special or are walking the South West Coastal Path and pop in for a hot chocolate with a dog in tow.

We offer an dining experience that incorporates quality ingredients, a welcoming atmosphere and one of the most relaxing views you’re likely to find this side of the Mediterranean.
