The dining room, particularly the glass conservatory section, is lovely. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The service was friendly but not always smooth or professional.

Showcasing some of the finest ingredients Cornwall has to offer, our award-winning restaurant, Rastella, is home to exquisite dishes inspired by coast and country. From Cornish line-caught mackerel to chateaubriand steak, we only serve the best of the best. Join us for breakfast, lunch, or dinner With the help of a local forager, butcher, lobster fisherman, and market gardener, we ensure only the highest quality produce arrives into the kitchen of our Falmouth restaurant. We can probably all agree that Cornish food is some of the best in the country and we'd be crazy not to take advantage of that. From local foragers, butchers, and garden marketers to the love our Head Chef puts into every dish on the menu, we have one mantra in the Merchants Manor kitchen: what grows together, goes together.
