As the Cornish say "its the proper job". We stopped for a Fish & Chip lunch. The dining area is on the first floor, offering a superb view across the harbour. Good Portions, well cooked. Very tasty. The staff were willing and helpful. We were pleased that we chose this restaurant for our lunch.

Fancied a bag of chips. Wish I'd read reviews beforehand. Weren't great at all. Had to wait for them to be cooked fresh. £1.90 a small bag but not really worth £1..... had much better. A shame as all the fresh fishes looked amazing.

Went on Valentines Day at lunchtime, not too busy but had a good atmosphere. Great views! One of the positives here is that it offers top quality food coupled with really good service but at the same time is not pretentious and trying to be something it is not, it is however a smart and pleasant place to eat with...

Not a bad restaurant . A little overpriced. Great views. Have eaten here several times, menu a little limited.

Visited on Valentines night whilst visiting St Ives. The service was very good and our meals came out quite quickly (but we were eating early 6pm so the place was quiet) The food was nice but not memorable so probably over-priced. Probably will not return.

let me start by saying the staff were amazing, the food was absolutely scrummy and the view is to die for, we have visited the beach regularly over the last year and every time we go our expectations get higher and higher. Thank you for a lovely dinning experience.

We went to the Beach restaurant for a Boxing Day meal with our children (aged 7,5&2). The service was superb. We hadn't pre booked but were able to get a window seat which I recommend if possible because the view is great. The food was served swiftly and was delicious. I had cod and chips, the kids had chips and... More

Upon our visit (a couple of weeks ago) to this restaurant we didn't feel completely satisfied with anything, nothing was terrible but nothing was great either. When we arrived there was one other couple who had finished eating. It took ages for our food to come out and when it did the food was ok, although my partner enjoyed his... More
