With Mr P’s new adventures underway and us catching up with friends before he heads off to Cumbria for work we decided to try some food at Provedore, a gorgeous little quaint restaurant tucked away on a sidestreet off the beaten track in Falmouth. It’s not in the town centre, it’s situated on Trelawny Road.
Provedore is a stunning neighbourhood cafe by day and tapas bar by night, they have been running since 2007 and are a real hit with the locals. They serve a great selection of breakfast and lunch dishes which is mainly sourdough sandwiches, bagels and sweet treats all washed down by some amazing coffees and is open Tuesday to Friday 0830 – 1530 and on Saturdays 0830 – 1230. In the evening it transforms into a charming tapas restaurant serving a small selection of delicious tapas washed down with some lovely wine and beer. It’s open Thursday to Saturday evenings from 1830 – 2200.
This little gem is very popular and doesn’t take bookings so forward planning is a must, as it opened at 1830, we arrived shortly after and by 1850 it was full, there are limited tables seating up to around 30 covers.
This fantastic restaurant transports you to another place, it made us feel as though we were on holiday with its quirky decor, scrumptious food and lovely friendly atmosphere which brought a touch of the Mediterranean to Falmouth. This was the perfect place to share some tapas and sample some new and interesting dishes. The restaurant is quite small, giving it a cosy intimate feel and great for striking up a conversation with other dinners.
The menu is not vast but has a good selection of dishes and changes regularly dependant on what ingredients they can get.
For starters we ordered stuff vine leaves and salted cod croquettes
For main we ordered the Kuwait berberre spiced chicken curry and the slow cooked Italian ragu to share between the 4 of us.
To say this food is tasty is an understatement it is delicious authentic food, with great flavours combined together making my taste buds feel like they are having a party.
To finish our evening we ordered a cheese board, gorgeous salted cheese with figs, pomegranate, pear and walnuts.
This place has a relaxed atmosphere and we didn’t feel rushed, we actually spent the whole evening there, eating, drinking and chatting whilst soaking up the earthy boho atmosphere. Because the menu changes regularly you may not experience the same dish twice which I think is exciting as you don’t know what to expect. This really is a lovely unconventional and unique place which I shall be returning to, a fabulous evening enjoyed by everyone.
A little tip tho, make sure you take cash as they don’t accept cards…. It is reasonably price and great value for money.
