Our first visit to ben's kitchen and it won't be our last. I had the lamb which was cooked to perfection, not an easy task with the cut of meat. You need to book! You will come back! Enjoy!

We had a lovely lunch here whilst on holiday in Marazion. The food was well presented and cooked, though not plentiful. The restaurant is attractive and reasonably small, so it is very important to book ahead.

If you go in the evening then the car park for St Michael's Mount is almost opposite which has lots of spaces. They charge when the attendant is there, usually in the evening there is no one to pay so it is free.
