Small restaurant providing a magic, un-pretentious eating experience. Increasingly, the 'drizzle' has become like a chef's nervous tick, adding nothing to the meal. At Ben's, the perfectly-cooked food is very nicely presented without such affectations. The decor is cosy and quiet without echoey hard surfaces, and the service friendly and not pushy. Ben's is expensive for us but, for a... More

Really lovely food with great service. We took our little one at lunch and were made to feel very welcome. The atmosphere was calm and warm. The food was really great and the best we'd had all week. I would have given this 5 stars but can't as it falls slightly short of other restaurants I've given 5 stars to.

Well worth its reputation. A small restaurant but comfortable inside and tables not crowded together. The main feature is the quality of the food, both presentation and taste. Wine a bit on the expensive side, but good quality and overall worth it, especially for a special occasion.

I can't think of a single thing to say about this place that isn't totally positive. Everything about it is just spot-on... it's small and the style is very informal, the service is friendly and relaxed but impeccable, wine list that's really well-priced and unpretentious with lots of choices by the glass or carafe, short menu that changes daily with...

I have had this restaurant on our to go to list for some time, so was lucky to get a booking on the same day when walking in the area. It was full on a Tuesday night in February which speaks volumes. We both really enjoyed our starters, my pig's cheek was scrumptious. However both of us found our main... More

We visited at lunchtime and the food was sublime. Pork cheeks to start followed by pave of beef. The meat was so tender and every mouthful so flavoursome. A top quality restaurant with attentive service and a lovely vibe. Definitely recommended.

My wife and I visited Marazion for the first time and booked Bens Cornish Kitchen as we had seen it online. It was amazing food, we had the 3 course Dinner and enjoyed a glass of the recommended wine with each course, all I can say the food and service was faultless. We can't rate it highly enough. 6 stars... More
