We had two meals here, one of three courses, and were delighted with the food both times. Fresh, wonderful flavour and good value for money also. If we didn't live in Kent we'd be back there all the time.

The restaurant is situated in quite an isolated position, but it is well worth the visit, and the views in daytime over to St Anthony’s Head are very special. But the real gem is the great food - which is such a joy to the...More

Delicious food, top quality food. Stunning beach views and attentive staff. Lovely ambience- a real treat! It can be a little chilly on a cold evening, so would recommend wearing warmer clothes. Absolutely lovely.

Absolutely fabulous food, perfectly presented. Very friendly service with lots of genuine smiles. Everything perfect except for the fact that one nearby table couldn't control their toddlers, which was very distracting - not the restaurant's fault. Perhaps parents should reconsider taking out very young children...More

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.

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.
