We have eaten here two years in a row now and both times have had a fantastic meal. The staff are friendly and efficient and incredibly helpful despite getting our booking mixed up! My only advice is to book in advance for evening eating as it's incredibly popular. My only criticism is that there were more bones than I would... More

The food is that good we went twice during our week in St Ives. Make sure you book early as it is that popular it gets booked up quickly. The fish dishes are amazing it's a must if you are staying in St Ives. Lovely view from the window tables of the harbour also!

We had our lunch here recently and were once more impressed with the speed of service, the choice of food and the outlook over the bay at St. Ives

Unlike a few other restaurants in St.Ives, The Beach manages to provide tasty, well presented food without the pretentious atmosphere. It's simply great seafood, with a nice view over the harbour. The chowder is a must have, we got it as a starter and wanted to cancel our main and get another one... But glad we didn't as the lobster... More

We managed to get a table just after 9pm and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. Amongst us we had monkfish, scallops and lemon sole. The portions were very generous and the presentation of the dishes was excellent.

Small but cozy restaurant. Service staffs were all so friendly it feels like home. Food was certainly great as we slowly enjoying our tableful of varied orders until nearing their closing hour.

Visited here with our family and it was very busy so had to sit apart so if you are a party of 7+ get there early as it really is worth it! The food was beautiful - I had the scallops and my hubby had the fish, chips and mushy peas. The service was quick and friendly and it is... More

The Beach Restaurant looks rather simple from the outside. It doesn't give away just how wonderful the view, food and staff are. We ate their twice in 5 nights! The food is absolutely delicious. Night 1 we enjoyed chowder and desserts and savoured them both. The 2nd night we enjoyed squid, scallops and fillet steak. The waiter joked that we... More
