Do not book too late. You will miss an opportunity to eat what I would say is art. French meets island meets Italy? So very lovely. Flavours explode in your mouth. Watching this tiny place feed everyone is in itself a play. Do not pass up a chance to eat here.

We are well travelled and can confidently say Rumbaba is our absolute favourite restaurant to visit. The food is extremely fresh, simple yet inventive with a homely wholesome touch. The restaurant itself is a lovely place to sit and relax, the atmosphere and ambience is perfect. It's laid back and we always feel welcome there. The kitchen is great, and... More

Outwardly the appearance of this place does not give you the impression that you are about to have the best meal of your holiday. Don't be fooled, how wrong first impressions can often be. This place and its owner are priceless, we did indeed have the best meal of our holiday. It is a very small shack like restaurant on... More

Lunch, served and billed by the scoop, amazing selection of mouthwatering delights including a wonderful variety of vegetable dishes. Dinner, a more formal menu of staggering delights, had us all passing the plates around to try the various delcious flavours. The place is delightfully informal but the food is incredible... loved it

Everyone keeps telling me how good Rum Baba is, but i cannot get past the dirty venue and dry (2-day old at least) bread they served me (on two separate visits). The food is cheap, but so are the ingredients and it shows. Sorry Rum Baba, but doubt i will be back.

So good we went twice in our 9 night stay. Really delicious and very charming shabby chic shack. Highly recommend this venue, Each dish surprised us with just how more technical and complex it was than it sounded on the menu - loved being surprised and delighted by every plate!

Gorgeous little restaurant just opposite the Entrance to Falmouth Marina. We went for lunch and dinner. Lunch was a choice of delicious salads and a short menu (I had a fried feta salad - amazing) and dinner was an experience - fresh, local seafood and vegetables(meat was also on the menu) beautifully presented and prepared in the kitchen, right in...
