Really pleased to have eaten at Ben's Cornish Kitchen as it was a pleasure. Great ingredients and suburb cooking. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. Restaurant is over two floors and the food is star, as it should be.

Dined at Ben's Kitchen with a couple of pals in the off-season, so it was not difficult to get a booking. But have to say this was a little Cornish gem. Service professional and friendly; ambience/fit-out cute rather than fancy; food unexpectedly good for such...More

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.
