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

Four of us had lunch here last week and the food was excellent . The number of batter / accompaniment options was staggering and I can highly recommend the pesto mash ! Sat in this restaurant looking over the harbour on a cold day was fab and topped off by a bottle of localy brewed boilers beer !

My friend and I had spent the morning exploring St Ives and were quite famished by the time we got to the row of restaurants on St Ives' seafront. There are quite a lot to choose from and they all had enticing menus so we narrowed the choice down by opting to have local fish. The Beach looked very cosy... More

What a beautiful place to eat, scenery was amazing along with the food. Exellant service, waitress was very friendly . We spent over 2 hours in the restaurant and didnt want to leave, the food was freshand well cooked, mussels were the best I've ever had. Overall worth every penny and a must for all. Sel & Keith

Once again five blobs and ate here twice. Great fish extremely well cooked and overseen by some great staff who have embraced the concept of customer service. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable which complemented some extremely well prepared dishes. Other fish based restaurants can learn a lot from the beach Restaurant (if they want to)

Visited this restaurant 3 years ago and remembered the lovely view and super service. This year all the same but thought the food pretty average which was a bit disappointing. Hope back to normal next time we visit.

We chose this restaurant for several reasons, the location over looking the harbour was fantastic and we knew we would enjoy looking out whilst we have our last lunch in St Ives. The menu was all about fish that was the second reason. Whilst we have stayed in St Ives we ate fish most days at some point but you... More
