Here we are again for a long awaited return to this lovely restaurant. I had prebooked earlier in the week for this Wednesday evening. The food and service were as good as ever, friendly with good knowledge of the food and the wines. We chose matching wines which were brilliant, especially as I was driving so the 100ml glasses with... More

The reviews do this place justice. Cosy atmosphere, good service from the staff and fantastic food. We both had scallops for starters which melted in the mouth. I then had venison and my husband fish both cooked to perfection. Deserts were also good leaving us satisfied but not bursting at the seams after three courses. Great Value for money. Shame... More

We went having heard good things, but those reviews had in no way prepared us for the fabulous experience that we had. The restaurant was sunny and light, with plenty of room between the tables, giving the perfect atmosphere, somehow also giving a air of cosy intimacy. The service was faultless and the food sublime and very reasonably priced. I... More

Ben's Cornish Kitchen is Cornwall's place to be at the moment. It's a modest looking place opposite St Michael's Mount in West End, Marazion. I'd read reviews about this place and booked it weeks earlier. Expectations were high. Five of us were shown to the upstairs dining area; a smallish room of about 20 covers. Nice ambience. We were soon... More

Fortunately we made reservations around 2 to 3 weeks in advance, as the place was perpetually fully booked. The food was lovely; we had excellent starters (scallops, crab taco) and mains (deer haunch, hake). The hake was their catch of the day, and was simply prepared and yet fantastic. The deer haunch wasn't that impressive, but was still above average.... More

This was our second visit and it was equally as brilliant as our first last October. Exquisite food, great service, inventive menu, if visiting Cornwall you simply must eat here. Scallops were particularly delicious!

Visited this restaurant with Local friends for an evening meal. As one of their favourite restaurants in West Cornwall they were keen to share with us. All I can say is that I have eaten in the two best known restaurants in Padstow and Ben’s is right up there with them and you are not paying ‘Padstow Prices’. If you... More

What a gem of a restaurant this is, located in the heart of Marazion with views of St. Michaels Mount in the upstairs section. Two courses £28 or three courses £35. Excellent value and would definitely visit again.

Set on the main road in this village opposite St Michael's Mount, parking could be an issue in the holiday season. The interior is tastefully decorated and generates a welcoming atmosphere. Service is informal but fine and attentive. Liked the good quality cutlery. Food was excellent - tasty and fresh, cooked in innovative ways. Like other good restaurants, the portions... More
