We dine here most weeks and yet again all 4 of us had an utterly superb meal on Good Friday. Having frequented the establishment regularly for well over a year now, I can hand on heart tell you that it's one of the best in the area. Penzance and the surrounding locality is blessed with several outstanding restaurants, it truly... More

Oh my goodness! The food was superb! Really quite outstanding! Every mouthful was a... More

We have been to Ben's Cornish Kitchen several times, and it never fails to impress. Last week was no exception. We took two friends there for lunch, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. This is now our favourite restaurant in Cornwall!

We went to Ben's Cornish Kitchen expecting a lot after some strong recommends. We were not disappointed! We had an amazing evening. After a warm welcome, we were shown to our table upstairs. The decor and ambience was wonderful. The service was both friendly, attentive and faultless. The wines were superb, the port amazing and the coffee excellent. The range... More

If you visit Marazion, do not leave without eating here. We had lunch accompanied by the recommended wines with each course. The waiter was superb, polite and well informed. The food was fabulous, and demonstrated that the chef is highly skilled and passionate about the food. For desert I had "sweet curry", accompanied by sake. Do not miss it!! I... More

Fabulous meal here with family. The menu had about 5 choices for each of starters, mains and desserts. All of us were thrilled with our choices (including 2 veggies eating). Do try the curried dessert plate - so clever, innovative and delicious! Great service and good value.
