Side tracked from Falmouth. Beautiful autumn day. Almost warm enough to sit outside on terrace, and some did. Went for the November special lunch but for some reason I didn’t get the limited choice menu and spent 50% more - very happy though with choices...More

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.
