Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I booked a solo lunch a few weeks ago while visiting Falmouth and it was my favourite lunch of the whole trip. They offer a shorter five course menu at lunch, making it a much more affordable option if you just want to dip your toe in. You won't leave stuffed, but I had definitely had enough to get me to dinner. I loved the concept of being taken through the county, and their knowledge of local suppliers and produce was exceptional (their bee guy made a visit during my meal). You really are rewarded for probing further into the ingredients and culture around the restaurant. The highlights for me were the potatoes from their garden, and the remarkable dessert made from a nearby chocolate supplier that uses some of the most flavourful ethically sourced cocoa beans. I chose the wine flight to accompany, which was very well chosen with great variety from a minerally start to a more full bodied finish. My only critique on the wine is that there must surely be at least one English one that could be included on the pairings? It would tie in very well with the theme of the restaurant and there's plenty out there of the right quality and flavour. Looking forward to trying out the dinner option at some point in future.

Thanks Andy! We can't arrange for Matt (the bee guy) to drop in everytime but we certainly enjoy his honey deliveries. Thank you for your feedback, our wine list is always changing as are our pairings. So an English wine may find its way on there if it fits. We look forward too welcoming you back in the future. You could amazing Langham Rose from Dorset!

My partner and I have just started our holiday in Cornwall and we were so so pleased we booked this as our first restaurant of the trip. A fantastic venue, it felt so cosy and comfortable. The Journey menu was lovely, we really enjoyed guessing what food was coming next and it was so great to see so much local produce. The dishes were exceptional, full of flavour and vibrant colours. We really felt we got value for money as the whole experience lasted for around 3 hours and we felt it was well paced with space between dishes. The portion sizes were also enough and we both came out feeling very full and happy. We look forward to coming back! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Four of us for dinner at Culture Resturant in Falmouth. As I entered the building I was taken with the signage and the pared back brickwork. The atmosphere created by the lighting, furnishings and the clean kitchen surfaces made a good first impression. Both staff greeted us warmly, we were seated in front of the kitchen and were able to talk to chef Hylton Epsey during the meal. And so on to the Journey menu. The food was served in beautiful locally made ceramic dishes, every one of the taster courses was a taste sensation with very visually appealing, colours and textures to boot. Hylton and Bobby shared the provenance of the food and the inspiration behind each course as each course was brought to the table. We were able to ask about the food, both staff were genuinely enjoying us being there and sharing their love and knowledge of local produce with us. I enjoyed every course, every texture, flavour and knowing that they were so fresh made it extra special. We had the masons village's recolte 2020 Bourcier-martinot, which complemented every course. Fresh vegetables and milled grains for the sourdough, beautifully flavoured oysters, tender lamb, foraged greens from the land and sea. I wish we lived closer, I am recommending Culture resturant to all my friends and family."

I ate here last Saturday lunchtime whilst visiting friends who live locally and have eaten at Culture before. I am fortunate to have eaten at several michelin restaurants and Culture really stepped up to the plate! Firstly, the location and interior. I love Falmouth and it's great to see a michelin restaurant in the town, adding to it's great food and bar scene. Very clean cut, Scandi vibes with an open kitchen. Low key, but high end and quality without being stuffy. The food itself was beautiful in both presentation and taste. Bobby (manager) and Hylton (Head chef) bring out the food, explaining the dish and the wine (we opted for the wine pairing). It was great hearing the local produce used and the stories behind the wines in the wine flight, and the passion behind the food and wine was apparent. The venison was a particular favourite of the tables, along with the chocolate pudding with duck egg merignues. The lunch tasting menu is absolutely fantastic value for money! For those who perhaps haven't been to a tasting menu style restaurant, Culture is a fantastic place as a first experience, given the fantastic value, and service. For those who are more veteran michelin goers, this is definitely one to tick off the list. The service by Bobby and Hylton was great. Informal without being casual, informative and attentive. A great place to visit for friends, and I cannot wait to come back next year when I am back in the area with friends. Thank you Hylton, Bobby and the team at Culture.

A wonderful evening all ways round. The menu and food combinations were delightfully unique and delicious, and nothing like I’ve ever savoured or tasted before. The presentation, colours and selection and abundance of flavours were a real treat. All this, along with the great service, selection of wines, relaxed environment and intimate atmosphere all contributed to this being a special evening to remember for a long time to come. Thank you.

Whilst on holiday in Falmouth we went to Culture for my GFs birthday after hearing it was one of the best places to visit and we were not disappointed. The restaraunt is right on the harbour so very central to the town and easy to get too, The menu is presented as a storey about where the food has come from and the people involved in making it, and as a taster menu, not knowing what exactly what each course is adds to the charm of the evening. The chef and staff come to your table and tell you what each plate is which is unlike most restaurants where the chef is hidden away, making the experience very special, We got the wine flite to go with the meal which was great, I've since ordered a bottle or two... The food was amazing, my GF still dreams about one of the dishes ( no spoilers) Overall the food was fantastic, the staff made the evening very special and I can't wait to go back next time I'm in Cornwall!

This is the 3rd time we've dined at Culture. The wonderfully friendly welcome from the team is one of the reasons we return. We enjoyed another delicious😋 meal at this fabulous restaurant, this time, with my parents-in-law, who were also impressed. Hylton's skill in elevating excellent local produce to new heights is wonderful. For example, Hylton doesn't just bake the bread, he mills the grain himself, bakes the bread and serves it with the most deliciously light, handmade marmite or miso butter. He and Bobby, the manager, take you on an amazing 'edible journey', accompanying each dish with wine that complements the flavours of the food perfectly. The attention to detail is masterful. We love that the menu only hints at what is to come, allowing the chef to adapt and change what he is serving, according to when the produce he has sourced or foraged, is at its best. The surprise is part of the experience. Thank you so much, we just love💖 dining here. Give it a try, you will not regret it.

Absolutely blown away by the food, atmosphere and experience of eating at Culture. We had the Culture journey menu and it well and truly felt like a journey through the natural landscape of Cornwall. Perfectly balanced and paired with each course building to the next. No doubt the best restaurant in Falmouth and possibly in Cornwall. Chef Hylton and his staff were very hospitable and conversational as well as clearly knowledgeable about their craft. Can't recommend enough.

This is the ultimate food experience! Not a ‘fur coat & no knickers style over substance ‘ affair. The ‘obsession’ with provenance of every ingredient is shared with such passion and care. If you love exploring natural tastes and are prepared to leave pre conceived ideas at the door this is the place for you. Just didn’t want the experience to end! When you realise what has gone in to producing this the value for money is exemplary - especially compared with some of the highly lauded high end restaurants that seem to thrive but have clearly given up on taste and love of good food and with it service and intimately ‘Experience’

I went to Culture for my birthday with group of friends, it was one of the most amazing restaurant experiences I've ever had. The food was divine and it was presented in such an imaginative way. The entire evening was a journey through Cornwall, visiting all the local farms and businesses, paired perfectly with the wine flight which included my personal favourite, Free To Be, which was a lovely way to finish the evening. The chef and restaurant manager made us feel like we were old friends and it was so much fun watching the Hylton plate up all the dishes on the pass. Overall we had a great evening full of laughs, wonderful wine and most importantly scrumptious food. I will definitely be returning with more friends! Thank you Hylton and the team!

We wasn’t going to write a review but after watching the Michelin ceremony and seeing culture receive a place in Michelin guide and a green star we just had to. The concept was a really good idea but the execution of the dishes and cooking was below average. The oysters were dry no seasoning or flavour at all, the scallops overcooked, I mean it’s very depressing to say that the most positive part about the meal had to be the bread. I’m sure I will get an arrogant response like the last review as the owner obviously can’t deal with criticism!

We greatly enjoyed a relaxed evening at Culture, enjoying the company of the chef and manager, and being served delicious food and wines. The menu included a range of local produce which were cooked and presented superbly, and I can say that the mackerel was the best I have ever eaten. The room itself is smart and despite the lack of table cloths and carpets, the acoustics were excellent enabling normal conversation, unlike many restaurants. Culture must be up for a red Michelin star. Thankyou, we will plan a further visit.

This is a team with a very clear idea of the dining experience they want to offer and it was executed to perfection. The hosts were warm and welcoming, passionate and excited about the dishes that were being served. The smoked celeriac was simply amazing and the chef was able to explain to us how the dish was cooked, and it was clear that this is someone who is constantly exploring ways to work creatively with inspiring ingredients.

Chef Hylton Espey provides a gastronomic experience like no other in Falmouth. A set menu with multiple courses consisting of locally sourced and indeed foraged ingredients exquisitely presented and fabulously tasty. Do opt in the suggested wines, each glass chosen to match the course accompanying it. Just be aware this won’t be a cheap evening but as always you get what you for.

Absolutely perfect! I’m from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and I was visiting my mate in Cornwall. The trip to Cornwall and London was planned months in advance and many things for this trip was changed last minute.. however my mate said this is the one thing he would not change because of how sure he was that I would enjoy this dinner. He was 100% correct as I would rate my dinner and experience here 5/5. Everything was absolutely delicious and to be honest, I cant say one bad thing about any of the dishes or my experience. We were sitting directly in front of where the Chef was cooking and basically had the Chefs table - extremely cool! We had a chat with the Chef/owner and must I say, super swell guy I would 100% recommend to anyone that is visiting England or who lives in England to make the trip to Culture Restaurant.. I will definitely be going back Cheers!
