Reviewed By neverfor

I booked a table by phone and was surprised to find the Pub restaurant almost empty. We were worried whether this was because the food was not up to much but were in for a surprise.The roast lamb with vegetables we ordered was lovely and rich, very tasty.Quite a different experience from other Sunday roasts in town recently, which haven't been up to scratch one way or another, from lukewarm or uncrispy roast potatoes or swimming in gravy.We found out later that the Pub had only just restarted offering Sunday lunches.Definitely worth another visit or two.

Casa Juan

Reviewed By Cornflake50

Early April, early evening the restaurant was unheated and chilly but as more people arrived it warmed up. The music was initially rather intrusive and repetitive but this improved too as it was turned down. Decor is rather spartan and it is rather dark inside. Overall service was pleasant though a little absent at times. The Spanish house wine at £18 was pretty vile. Being a couple of cheapskates we often opt for the cheapest, but at £18 we expected something drinkable. The house home made bread was also awful, tasteless, limp, crumbly and doughy, they took it off the bill when I fed this back at the end . I wanted to mop up the sauces but the bread was so horrible it was difficult to achieve this. This took away from the enjoyment of the meal. Overall the tapas which were all chosen from the specials board were a mixed bunch. The chorizo which was first out was excellent, the beef shank in red wine was good and the scallop dish pretty yum yum. Less impressive was the rubbery chicken in a mediocre garlic sauce and the baby squid which was mainly batter and lacking any flavouring. Portions are generous.We paid £55 before tip. I have scored this a three, my partner wanted to score it a two. He complained about the wine more than I did which was a bit silly as he had been given it to taste at the beginning and he said it was fine. So to be fair to the restaurant they did not get the opportunity to change it.

Star and Garter

Here at the Star and Garter, we're passionate about our ingredients and work closely with some of the best artisan suppliers in the county. We cook over an open fire and have a "nose to tail" philosophy, meaning we can pick and choose what goes on the men

Went here for a work thing so wasn’t in control of where we ate. Having looked at the menu online seeing zero vegan options I was worried that I’d be sat drinking water and eating nothing in front of colleagues so I phoned ahead and was reassured that there were vegan options but that the menu on the website wasn’t current. Feeling better about the situation I arrived to see only one vegan starter, one vegan main and zero vegan desserts :( None of the vegan options were labelled vegan either so I only knew they were SFV because I asked. The starter option was some kind of pepper dish, I ordered it because there was nothing else expecting stuffed peppers or something, but was genuinely shocked when I was served literally 20 plain peppers on a plate. Meanwhile my colleagues are eating delicate salads, delicious looking chicken wings and fancy potato croquettes... I was upset to be honest as I felt forgotten and that a vegan option was a last thought when it came to menu development, and realised halfway through my 20 peppers that I wasn’t enjoying them. Then I got nervous because the only vegan main course, which I therefore had to order, was aubergine (literally no ones favourite vegetable) with yet more peppers. My colleagues had ordered loads of chips so I was hoping to turn this evening around with potato only to be told the chips had duck skin sprinkled on them. The staff who were so lovely and patient with our obnoxious group offered to bring me some non-duck skin chips which I really really appreciated. Watching my colleagues tuck into hearty portions of roasted meats, cauliflower gratins, buttered greens and more while I was faced with more plain(ish) veg was pretty sad and has been the only time in my four years of being vegan that I felt truly disappointed at my life choices. Then I sat through dessert with nothing while everyone else ate cheesecake, ice cream and chocolate tarts before I could leave. My group was large and difficult so I would like to acknowledge the great service, polite and thoughtful staff made me feel a lot better when I was getting embarrassed by my groups poor timekeeping skills. I really expected better from a place I’ve heard only good things about. The starter was definitely lacking, especially when compared to the standard of meal the non vegans were given, and then to be followed by a meal that was more of the same peppers but now with added aubergine was absolutely not worth £16. It’s so easy to make amazing vegan meals, and to not offer one even one vegan dessert (not even sorbet!?) was pretty rubbish. Vegan pies, tarts, curries, gourmet burgers, nut roast, pasta dishes are all things vegans love to see on a menu so it would be great to see something more like that in future. I’d recommend this place for drinks as staff are fantastic and atmosphere is lovely but the vegan food was not up to modern standards. (Great staff though guys thank you really sorry to complain)Next time, please let us know your specific dietary requirements and our kitchen will make something for you; we’ve nothing against vegans, I assure you. However, our menu is very much shaped by the superb local meat and fish sourced on our doorstep and we’re not afraid to admit it!

Harbour View

Reviewed By Cornflake50

All six of our tapas dishes were very good though as they were brought out together some went cold. When I gave this feedback I was told I could have asked for them to come separately, it would be a good idea to ask people in advance. We had incorrectly assumed that they would come out one by one. We shared an expresso creme brulee which was so good but the cinnamon donuts had zero cinnamon in them and were pretty awful, just lumps of dough. All in all it was a very good meal and it's a pleasant cafe style restaurant with a good view of the harbour. The wine though has a high mark up, the pinot grigio we had cost £19 and tasted like a £5 bottle. Would it not be possible to improve the quality? An extra couple of pounds spent would go a long way. The wine was just about drinkable. We paid £65 before tip. It was the first cold evening we have had and there is quite a draught in the window seats. It was an enjoyable evening and the waiters do their bestWe are delighted that you enjoyed your tapas dishes and creme brulee and appreciate your feedback regarding the timings of your dishes. We do typically serve everything at once unless someone asks otherwise but will bear this in mind going forward. We were sorry to hear that your donuts were not quite so good. This is a suprise as they are usually delicious so can only apologise that they were not so during your visit. Please do always tell your server if something is not right - we would have been happy to replace them. As regards the wine, once again we would have been happy to offer you an alternative if you were not happy.

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.

Reviewed By TravellingPassion78

After a nice walk from Falmouth along the coast, you can take a break at The Cove. There is a lovely, wind-protected terrace and if it is still too cold / rainy, it is cosy to sit inside as well. Though you may not have such a fantastic sea view. It is a pity that at the beach itself, there are many cars parking, spoiling the view. It is less busy than at the beaches of Falmouth, at least in shoulder season.

This place is delightful. Small family run atmosphere with professional service and great food. We booked a table and glad we did because it was busy. Clean and pretty with nicely presented drinks and starters. Pizzas were some of the best we have had outside Italy. Well done Mangia you are winning

New owners but still providing a very good quality dining experience and service. Ceri looked after us very well and explained the dishes and how she and Matthew had taken over from Ken and Wendy who should be pleased their hard work to establish Olivers has not been wasted. We had booked a month ahead of our visit to Falmouth as we know from past experience that the restaurant is very popular and the Saturday we ate it was full and were turning people away. The food was as good as ever with very original touches. We had mackerel riillettes, scallops starters, hake, duo of pork for mains and a stem ginger panna cotta which was brilliant. The wines by the glass were delicious and the small bottle of prosecco was a great way of getting a single glass of fizz. Very good luck to this young couple's adventure

La Cave

Reviewed By RoxanneC142

Had spotted La Cave while walking through Falmouth and so glad we did! Popped in to book an early table which was no problem. Started with two lush cocktails, unfortunately no mussels for my other half but he enjoyed the escargots instead. My ratatouille was delicious (I'm not a vegetarian), as was the fish main chosen by my other half. Great wine, and just brilliant service from the two ladies all night.
