Food and ambience

Special Occasion Dining, Romantic, View, Groups, Business meetings
Nestled on the shoreline of Maenporth Beach, The Cove offers uninterrupted views across Falmouth Bay. A sanctuary from the bustle of reality, where you can enjoy lunch al fresco on the elevated terrace or wind down the day with the full dining experience. The Cove is an oasis of taste and visual beauty, easily one of the most picturesque spots to enjoy the real flavour of Cornish ingredients.

Beautiful beach view and great terrace for drinks and social gatherings. Good menu and enjoyable menu. There are special BBQ evenings and limited lunch time snacks. Advise booking for meals, as really popular, due to location.

The Cove is one of the best restaurants in Cornwall. The setting, the food and drink, and the service are outstanding. Have eaten here on numerous occasions and can not fault it. Would highly recommend it.

There were no children there in the evening when we were there and I dont believe there is a childrens menu. This is a lovely place for adults to enjoy a relaxing evening - I wouldnt reccomend taking children.

I'm not sure if they have a children's menu as our party was only adults. Personally, I would think well behaved children would be welcome.
