Eating at Eden Project
There are a few places to eat in at Eden Project. There was a cafeteria by the entrance and it was very busy when I arrived. I decided to go down to the biomes as it was indicated on the map that there were places to eat in there as well. It was lunchtime and very busy. Food was served on one side of the main entrance and coffee and snacks on the other. I asked someone if there were Cornish pasty and was told that there was a stand outside selling them. I went there and luckily the queue was short. I had a Cornish pasty with minted lamb. It was a bit spicy for my taste, otherwise it was good. The pasty was £4.50 and a coffee was £2.50 (April 2014).
Inside the tropic biome there is a place selling refreshing smoothies with baobab. They were £1.50 and tasted very good. There is also a place to eat in, inside the Mediterranean biome.

Austells, Carlyon Bay: Fine British Dining Experience
Exactly as stated on their website, "The simply elegant dining area is raised so that you can see the chefs at work in the open plan kitchen and enjoy their concentration whilst they create your meal. The cuisine is Modern British from the freshly baked bread through to the delightful petit-fours and is designed to create that comfortable, well fed feeling whether your appetite is small or large."
Seeking, a what should be a well deserved Michelin Star, Brett Camborne-Paynter, Austell's chef-proprietor has created a wonderful "do not miss" dining experience.
Favorite Dish: We dropped by the day before and requested a Lobster main course for 2 - Chef's choice therefrom Bisque, Risotto, poached tail - wonderfully executed.

Gateway Cafe: Plenty of Eats
Actually, we never stopped to eat at Eden, mainly because we live quite close, and didn't really feel hungry.
There are several Cafes, takeaways, and a large restaurant at the entrance to the Biomes. From what we saw, the meals looked nice, and prices seemed to be reasonable. (We spent some time standing on The Link, between Biomes, looking down on those eating, LOL!).
Garden of Eden Cafes: Between the Biomes
Between the two Biomes and linking there are two large cafe areas - one is suitable for more substantial meals and the other for snacks, soups and sandwhiches.
Both are quite reasonable - surprisingl for a tourist attraction - and with a good selection to suit all. There is room to sit outdoors and indoors.
Othe quick food outlets for baked potatoes and pizzas etc are also availbale near the education section of the site - samre pricce as the cafe.
Favorite Dish: I enjoyed a spicy 3 bean and salsa baked potato.
