Top marks for location and friendly efficient staff, but why oh why is the menu such a mess making it difficult to understand and chose items, also too fussy. The food was ok in the end but it took too long to interpret.

Following a long hot walk from Falmouth past Swanpool, we were presented with (again) fabulous food served in a professional way by staff who were attentive without being intrusive and have been working here many years. We used to live in Cornwall for over 10...More

We have recently returned from our annual Cornwall holiday trip and the Cove has become a firm favourite! The setting is beautiful and the restaurant is immaculate. This combined with stunning food and excellent service makes this restaurant in a winner!

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.

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.
