Thursday lunch; perhaps the A team were away. Doors were open; it was cold. Our booking was not acknowledged. We were put well away on a lonely table. There was plenty of room. The young staff were obviously inexperienced, including perhaps the cook. Nobody seemed...More

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.
