It isn't hard to come by great fish and chips in Cornwall, but the Beach Restaurant on the picturesque harbour in St Ives certainly is a cut above the rest. Freshly cooked, crisp batter and excellent chips with a sensible portion size. Good value for money, and their range of fish is superlative. Always a port of call on a... More

Visited the restaurant on 29th June. The choice offered on the menu was plenty. Between the four of us we had Fish pie, Fried Plaice, Grilled John Dory and Grilled Salmon. As told, all fish were caught the same day.....the food tasted amazing.... One thing that really impressed us was the service they provided. Parking in St Ives can be... More

Whether you want a lunch or dinner this has to be the best seafood restaurant in St Ives. The staff are fab, the food is sooooo delicious (I highly recommend the seafood chowder!) and it is very well priced. There are great views over the harbour while you are dining too.

my husband and mother in law ordered the traditional lasagne which was very nice and I ordered the cajun chicken. The cajun chicken was hot but full of flavour. The Italian house red was very nice also. Great price, great food and great service.

One of the best meals we've had in ages, despite chef being slightly heavy handed with the pepper. (perfect for me though!) Extremely good services and a wonderful view. Very good menu and special board and reasonable prices. Worth a visit.

Went twice during a short stay in St.Ives. There were 6 of us and the food was consistently of a good standard. Choose from the freshly landed board and multiple options depending how you like it cooked. Would definitely return
