We ate at the Dolphin Tavern twice during our six day visit to Penzance. The food was delicious and within walking distance from our bed and breakfast.

Hubby and I had walked around Penzance to find somewhere for our dinner and had almost settled on another restaurant until we passed the dolphin tavern the smells lulled is in and how glad we were. The staff were all chatty caring and interested in why we were in Cornwall and what we had liked and served drinks with a genuine smile. Then we were found a table they were very busy lots of tables reserved and ordered steak. The food was served steaming hot and cooked to perfection. We really felt that this was an exceptional meal and will revisit next time we are in Cornwall. Thank you.

Took mother-in-law here for her Birthday before going to the Minnack. What a fantastic meal. Wonderful service from a lovely young man behind the bar, (meant to get his name), and a lovely table overlooking the harbour.
Food was delicious and the sizzling steak and prawn dishes were just that. My rump steak was cooked to perfection and tender as anything.
Raspberry pavlova was just scrummy (yes that is a word), I could have eaten another serving of it.
This was our first time eating here after several attempts in the summer (very popular establishment) and we will be back.
Thank you Dolphin Tavern.

Popped in hoping for a table for 14 + dogs and we were pleasantly made to feel welcome which is not always the case with large parties. Good food, well delivered and decent price.

Good food and service. Very nice surroundings. A little pricey for what you get but I guess it was in line with similar places..
