Situated on the first floor this restaurant affords uninterrupted views across the bay, the waters of which appear Mediteranean blue. It is light and the tables are well-spaced. The staff are pleasant and attentive too. However, our Cod and Chips were not up to spec - too fatty by far; they needed to be drained better before serving. But the... More

Eaten here before and food was good, so thought we would try it again. Nice atmosphere and good view across the harbour. Service is efficient, helpful and friendly. I ordered fish and chips and hubby the scampi. When they arrived on special serving boards the portions didn't look big, however this was deceiving as neither of us could finish them.... More

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.
