This was a real find for us! We were all surprised at the inventive and ‘different’ tastes across particularly the mains and desserts. My lamb with Imam Bayildi was absolutely superb to the point where I didn’t want to finish it and the dessert which...More

This is the only restaurant I visit, that I feel compelled to write a TripAdvisor review about, every time I go there. I have managed to reign it in, but that dessert (blood orange tart, meringue and cardamon ice cream) was a thing of great...More

No disaster, but somehow not amazing or memorable in any particular way. No problems with the Cornish kitchen take on a fine dining/gastro type experience, just fell a bit short of theatre, both on the plate and off it. Thoroughly recommended, but not exquisite.

Such a good meal, Ben is a professor of flavours, the Thai Curry ice cream dish is unbelievably good and you would never expect to work as well as it does, its fantastic. Always impressed with this place, no.1 restaurant in Cornwall.

We have been to Ben’s restaurant half a dozen times usually having three courses, not one of them has been less than perfect. The flavours, service and wine list are all top-notch.

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.
